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
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.
WWE makes some booking decisions that are questionable, at best. One of the internet hivemind opinions is that WWE has "messed up" Asuka, or poorly booked her. The truth is, Asuka has been booked perfectly. That's right. Absolutely perfectly.
Looks like the Kevin Owens face turn is finally a full-go, which is long overdue. Dude is an awful, awful heel. The comedic timing is too on point to fight how great of a babyface he can be. Guy can be the modern day Dusty Rhodes if they play it right.
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.
In a weird way, it's kind of a testament to New Day that they've gone all the way from "UGH these jobbers" to "Hey, these guys are pretty good!" to "Wow, New Day are the hottest heels in WWE!" to "Is New Day the greatest tag team of all-time?" to "Wow, New Day literally was given the longest reign in WWE history. They are truly the best." to "Okay, this is getting a little stale" to "UGH it's fucking NEW DAY." It's come full circle. Pretty impressive really.
H8ers gonna h8. Shane-O-Mac is 2nd best heel in this company. HEELS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BOOED. You're getting worked.
