Smackdown is all about the tie that wasn’t a tie because everybody already saw that AJ Styles hit the floor before Luke Harper in last week’s battle royale. But we all are playing along because wrestling is about suspension of disbelief, baby! Besides there is really no downside to an AJ Styles vs Luke Harper match. Plus as an added bonus we are promised that Bray Wyatt is gonna do some witchy stuff.
With Randy Orton being too brainwashed to take advantage of his shot to main event Wrestlemania against new World Champ bray Wyatt, Smackdown now has to name a new #1 contender and what better way to do that then through a hastily thrown together battle royal? So who is going to be lucky winner? I would bet every cent I own that it won’t be Apollo Crews. That you can take to the bank.
Chubs and chub lovers of the world rejoice! The WWE has decided that it is time for the more ample fellas in the world to get some shine and has decided that Team Chunk 6th man of the Year, Kevin Owens was not enough of a sign of solidarity by being WWE Universal Champion on Raw. Oh no, to make husky fellas all over even more cheery, WWE decided to shock the world and give the World Title to that pugnaciously portly pepperpot Bray Wyatt at this past weekend’s Elimination Chamber PPV. WWE as a company is now the Big & Tall men’s department store of pro wrestling.
Smackdown is laser focused on the Road to Wrestlemania and with an Elimination Chamber PPV this weekend (WWE really needs to take a look at the PPV schedule because the Royal Rumble was just 5 minutes ago!) this show has a lot of set-up to do in only 2 hours of television.
We are on the Road to Wrestlemania, folks! And now that John Cena is once again the “Face That Runs The Place”, things are heating up on the blue show.
Now see Smackdown realized how you are supposed to end the go home show before a Royal Rumble PPV…instead of having 3 part-timers staring at one another for an uncomfortable amount of time what you do is have a lumberjack match that ends in all of the lumberjacks in the ring beating the hell out of one another.
