Decent enough first attempt, but fell a bit short in not having their own Finn Balor. Dolph winning is certainly a curve ball, but I think its a spot that could have been better filled by a Owens or Cesaro or Zayn.

JBL is the absolute worst. Get Lawler back.

Didnt feel as fresh as RAW did, but still not a bad show.

Yeah not as good as Raw, but still a good enough show. Gives me confidence that the brand split will work, have no complaints with Dolph winning as its fully deserved, but i agree Cessaro could of been the man!

Smackdown was lacking a real big name for No1 contender, I like Ziggler but hes been badly booked pre draft so diminishes things for me

Need some real stars to come through, hopefully American Alpha next week will help and see guys like Nakamura come to Smackdown over the next year or so

I watched it and while it didn't have that freshness RAW had the previous night I felt they did alright, they're short on numbers, legit numbers but I like what they are trying to do.

I wasn't such a fan of Ziggler getting the number one contender, I feel that for now while it's great they look like they may use him he'd have been better suited to being the #1 contender at Backlash, SummerSlam is a big deal and I thought it would've been better to give Ambrose someone with a bit more pizazz, Cena or AJ would've been natural choices but I'm guessing theiir fued has one last match in it yet.

With Orton (who looks great) back but tied up with Lesnar that doesn't leave to many names, the obvious choice you'd think Bray Wyatt would be the guy, in fairness, I think many people got bored of their feud a while ago when they faced each other every week, so in that sense at least Ambrose/Ziggler feels fresh.

Cesaro would've been made for that spot and while it may only have been short lived (however many weeks it is until SummerSlam) I feel he'd have captured the imagination of what Shane tells us is the objective.

I don't really know what to make of the womans division, Becky and Nattie apart they seem like they've got anroster full of valets rather than wrestlere

I think given what they have to work with it's a pretty decent effort and given that RAW was so damn hot on Monday it was never likely to  oive upto that.

Excited about Shelton Benjamin, really think he can ads true value to the show, not so much for Rhyno, I get the need to pad out the roster but I just feel this again contradicts what Shane O Mac said he wanted, then again, this could be seen to be a Daniel Bryan decision in which case it makes the Shane view point moot.


P.S Like RAW I really like the fact they've changed up the stage and ring ropes, no ramp and blue ropes help give it that own unique look, would've preferred some other changes but that's niit-picking.

Week 1 -  RAW definitely feels like the fresh show.

Slater was on it. That's a huge plus
Ziggler winning was great and unexpected
No idea what that women's bit was even about
Why Shane and Bryan have to celebrate at the end on a show that's "all about the wrestlers"... I don't know?
Felt a bit light on actual action
Slater was on it and looked awesome
Felt like a decent start to be fair
Slater was on it

I liked that show. I think two shock winners were good, and that establishing Dolph again is a good move. Ambrose needs a win, the match will be very good and it lifts Ziggler back up, which he fully deserves.

But its very light in the middle. To be fair, 5 men from that match can now move on, and I think theres scope for one more AJ vs Cena match, Crews vs Wyatt and Corbin vs Benjamin.

Its missing the midcard, but its already fresh and added impetus. So if the draft nonsense last week made me disinterested, these two shows won me back over.

I think the aggression he was displaying against the referees were the first signs of developing something interesting with his character. If they can build on that intensity and take it to interesting places he could be decent enough

He would make an interesting, believable nasty champion.

And he's aware of the little touches to his character. Notice how when the locker rooms were split for the Battleground main event, people were talking and messing around with people their character never would. Corbin was stood at the back, on his own - consistent with his character.

He's got potential

Besides, he can wrestle. He's just starting out. And he saved Dolph Ziggler from breaking his face and turned it into a proper move faster, and slicker than anything John Cena could do
He's got bags of potential

Come on? Undertaker is probably the best big man of all time. Fair he wasn't great when he first started out, but he matured into one of, if not the best ever. His wrestling ability came later but particularly from 2006 onwards he was absolutely fantastic. Not to mention he wasn't particularly slow until recently. 

Kane is also miles and miles ahead of Corbin as a wrestler.

Yeah - and he's about 20 years older. So he should be better.

Sorry, but modern day Taker is cr@p. He has been carried through every match he's had for at least 5 years.

You're willing to give some guys a chance for being young, but not others. It's elitest.

Corbin was always going to be overshadowed on NXT in a one hour show behind the likes of Balor, Owens, Aries and Joe. He's had good matches with guys like Joe and Rhyno, and moving into a two hour show with a bunch of veterans could do him wonders.

He's not great in the ring, but he gets his character and has good potential.

Corbin has to compete with people flying all over the place like whirling dervishes, adding 450 degree flips to elbow drops for no apparent reason

So you accuse of others of giving allowances now you are doing the same for Corbin? Erm

When you spend 5 mins applying a vice grip its fair to say you cant wrestle

Sorry, but modern day Taker is cr@p. He has been carried through every match he's had for at least 5 years.

You're willing to give some guys a chance for being young, but not others. It's elitest.

He's not that young though, he's 31. Same age as Roman Reigns, older than Rollins, Ambrose, Rusev, Big E, Xavier Woods. He's way behind them. I understand he started later, but I don't think he's young enough, or naturally talented enough, to make up the gap in the next 5-10 years. He hasn't really improved since he joined three years ago. 

Since 2011 Undertaker has had several top quality matches and whilst he's also had good opponents, it takes two to tango. Triple H at WM 28, CM Punk at WM 29 and then the two Lesnar matches at Summerslam and Hell in a Cell. He's not at the same level as he was on in the five years prior to that, but he's still better than Corbin.

I understand giving somebody a chance, but with the talent around WWE right now, Corbin is seriously lacking. He's got a bad look, he's boring in the ring, can't really talk - I agree that he's good at playing to his character though. Unfortunately that is just not enough.

I'm a 10 year veteran thanks

I didn't ask because you disagree, I ask because the things you say seem pretty ridiciculous

Its not about wrestling, its about character? Theres no point having a character if you put two guys in a ring and everyone falls asleep or switches off

As for his character, his promos are rare and boring when they do appear and theres only so many times you can attack someone until those who still care...dont

So Crimey can use "bad hair" against him but I can't use "good pants" for him? Go call the administrator a troll.

Not everyone has to promo. You can have different styles of people. An actions-speak-louder-than words type guy is just as valuable. Some of his matches against Ziggler were good meaningless matches. It's not his fault it got booked about 20 times

I didn't mean the pant comments, I took that as tongue in cheek

His matches with Ziggler were awful and one of the reasons Ziggler becoming No1 contender seems like a bad idea

Ziggler is terrific though. And his MITB run was great
He's deserved this for some time.

It felt like a genuine fresh start.
How does it work - are Shane and Bryan genuinely in control or is Vince still in control of both in reality?
I'm not aware of how kayfabe it is

Bryan and Shane are just on screen characters and have no actual input, Shanes position could have changed though who knows

What generally happens is the creative team writes it all, it goes to the head writer (Dave Kapoor?) and I think Steph too who give feedback, once they clear it, it goes to Vince for his input

Whether Vince is deciding the direction as much though I don't know as it would go against his idea of the two brands competing

I don't think Stephanie technically has creative input.

I know shes moved away but I think it was Freddie Prinze Jr talking about his time in creative mentioned her signing off on the scripts.

Just looked it up, she was promoted after she left, so it would be HHH now
