The first episode of SmackDown on Fox had some fun moments, lots of guests (including The Rock), at least one good match, and a title match that sent a wave of anger through my body.
A few very minor surprises didn’t elevate this RAW to much more than average as WWE coasts its way into Crown Jewel this Friday.

Roman Reigns makes a life-altering announcement on a memorable episode of RAW.
The Shield continues to show cracks while some returns give a bit of freshness to a show that otherwise felt mostly like more of the same from RAW.
Shawn Michaels makes a big announcement, The Bella Twins make a statement at the expense of Ronda Rousey, Lashley and Owens trade places, Trish Stratus responds to Alexa Bliss, The Shield might have fractured, and more on a pretty good episode of RAW.
With a lot of talking and three matches of varying quality, this was a pretty average kickoff show. Though the good parts were quite entertaining, there weren’t a ton of them considering the two-hour running time of the show.
A couple of good Hell in a Cell matches make this a decent show.
The cruiserweights kick off Hell in a Cell in a fine fashion.
Goldberg returns to RAW to answer Paul Heyman’s challenge in an entertaining show that also had Rusev sharing some family photos, Seth Rollins coming up with a new nickname for Chris Jericho, Cesaro not paying much attention to Sheamus’ match against Big E, and much more!
This year’s No Mercy was pretty good, with the good matches being very good. The placement of matches seemed odd, but that didn’t hurt the show too much.
A big eight-man tag match featuring American Alpha, Hype Bros, The Vaudevillains, and The Ascension served as a good warmup for the second SmackDown Live PPV.
This year’s Clash of Champions was entertaining enough, but nothing seemed to get resolved in any of the storylines going into it.
Alicia Fox takes on Nia Jax during a fine kickoff show.
The best of Backlash wasn’t as good as the best of Summer Slam, but this was an enjoyable show and a good start to the brand exclusive PPVs.
A good kickoff with a surprisingly good match between Baron Corbin and Apollo Crews.
This year’s Summer Slam was entertaining, though for the matches that delivered on the hype, there were others that didn’t quite live up to expectations.
Sheamus and Cesaro start their best-of-seven series in a match that highlights a nice warm-up for Summer Slam.
The Real American’s get shown a little love on Valentine’s Day as Swagger gets a shot to be the #1 Contender for the IC Title and Cesaro goes one on one in a non-title match with WWE World Heavyweight Champ Randy Orton. Did they take advantage of their opportunities! Check out Wrestling House Show’s Smackdown Recap for February 14, 2014!
