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.
A long and entertaining show highlighted by two good matches featuring long histories. There was some down time in the show, but the good outweighed the not as good.
Renee Young and the panel talk about the matches at Battleground, Daniel Bryan and Mick Foley are in the Social Media Lounge, and The Usos face Breezango in an entertaining match.
The first live SmackDown was a good show. There were decent matches that did well to maintain interest in Battleground, and the draft itself was entertaining, though maybe not completely shocking.
This, the last taped SmackDown for a while, was entertaining enough and managed to maintain and build interest in the upcoming Battleground.
This episode felt like an afterthought, but the main event was good and there were some fun moments.
Not a bad final show before the PPV. Three good matches and not too much filler.
Some good matches make this a SmackDown worth watching.
Good matches and good talking segments make for one of the better Smackdowns in recent memory.
A couple of good title matches help to make this otherwise fairly unimportant show a pretty good watch.
An uneven show with some average matches, two pretty bad matches, and two really great matches. If nothing else, this show is worthwhile for the Intercontinental and World Heavyweight title matches.
This show felt like a bridge connecting RAW to Extreme Rules, and it did that job pretty well with some entertaining segments.
A good show. Worth watching.
Despite the announcement of the Divas Title match being triple threat, this show seemed kind of like it didn’t matter in the long run, but it was still a very entertaining show.
An okay show with a very good main event between Zack Ryder and Stardust.
With good matches and some nice attention paid to developing stories, this week’s Smackdown was very entertaining.
This was a 50/50 show. The first half was really good, the second half really wasn’t.
Fastlane was a mixed show. It had some very good matches, but it also had some not so great matches and very strange booking.
The Fastlane Kickoff show features a two out of three falls match for the US Title that was good enough to be on Fastlane, but might have been better on the kickoff show since it got more time. Plus the usual pre-show analysis and AJ Styles answering questions in the Social Media Lounge.
