After a fairly lackluster Raw (especially for a supposed "big show" at MSG) we will see if Smackdown with a 55 year old man in a "spooky" party city hat and jacket will show up. The real play for the Saudi PPV in October should be The Undertaker vs The Fiend Bray Wyatt, with Bray … Continue reading WWE Smackdown Live “Cowboy” Bob Round-Up: September 10th, 2019
After last night's most entertaining Raw segment in recent memory, the heel turn of Bayley, hopefully we get a glimpse of a new, actually entertaining Bayley. Bayley comes out with same exact entrance and same exact inflatable tube men to massive cheers. This is a horrible sign. If they chalk this up to another failed … Continue reading WWE Smackdown Live “Cowboy” Bob Round-Up: September 3rd, 2019
After a Raw last night that the internet found to be fairly pedestrian, let's see if Smackdown makes anybody give a shit. Personally, I think you're all incredibly spoiled and the wrestling alone last night was light years ahead of June Raws. Oh shit. I already forgot about the stupid fake bald guy with the … Continue reading WWE Smackdown Live “Cowboy” Bob Round-Up: August 27th, 2019
Fresh off a surprisingly good Monday Night Raw, let's see if we finally learn who tried to murder Roman Reigns in cold blood, and find out why the police is not on the case. We probably won't find out the second part. Speaking of not facing police repercussions, remember when Randy Orton burned down a … Continue reading WWE Smackdown Live “Cowboy” Bob Round-Up: August 20th, 2019
So now we are in the dregs of wrestling. Hour fucking 12 of the past 4 days after an excellent NXT Takeover, a fantastic Summerslam and a decent Raw. That pattern suggests Smackdown will be bad. Let's hope not. Hear that monster Kevin Owens face pop to start the show? Thanks Shane!Owens on King of … Continue reading WWE Smackdown Live “Cowboy” Bob Round-Up: August 13th, 2019
TONIGHT - will we find out who attempted to literally murder Roman Reigns twice? Will they be arrested and face trial? I'm guessing instead of facing any charges via the legal system they will be placed in a wrestling match. Few better ways to kick off the show than with The Queen. Seriously. They should … Continue reading WWE Smackdown Live “Cowboy” Bob Round-Up: August 6th, 2019
I'm old enough to remember when New Day was the hottest heel act in wrestling in a long, long time. Unfortunatley, when your heel act gets so hot that WWE turns you babyface, they take away all the edge that made you so popular to begin with. Why can't you just be the same act, except now directed towards heels?
Following last night's Raw setting up one of the shittiest Summerslams in recent history, hopefully Smackdown does something interesting.
Squandered Talent. You hear it often. Should Mr. Perfect or Million Dollar Man have been champions? Rick Rude? Jake "The Snake" Roberts? Did WWE squander a superstar with the poor booking of Asuka? No. I've debunked that. How could WWE not see Bayley as pure money?! Just untrue.
They are still treating Lashley/Strowman like it was the Trail of Tears. Kind of makes it a little lamer the more they hype it up like that. But at least they are trying to make it a thing.
