WWE Smackdown

Pat McAfee has been announced as the new color commentator for Smackdown, joining Michael Cole.

I like Pat a lot, so hopefully will be a good change. Certainly better than the RAW announce team now.

Tonight's show will see Dirty Dawgs defend against Street Profits.

I thought they did pretty well overall. I didn't hate it.

But then I like Pat.

It wasn't as bad as I was expecting, gonna take a lot more than that to make me a fan of McAfee though, lol.

 

As far as the show brand, I was kinda disappointed they're going with Cesaro to challenge Reigns next.  Was hoping they would build him up a little more before that.  Then again, there's little to no long term planning in WWE booking anymore.

 

My current guess is that Big E will unseat Reigns eventually.

I remember all the news sites had Big E as Vince's pet project before they switched over to Reigns and the rest was history.

It's absolutely pathetic that WWE, an hour before a show starts, can only bring themselves to announce two matches what it is their flagship show at the moment.

Dominik Mysterio vs Jey Uso

Finn Balor vs Baron Corbin

That's one thing I like about AEW, they'll have pretty much the entire card announced days in advance. You know what to expect, for the most part, when you tune in and they rundown the card at the start of the show. I remember a time when WWE used to do that.

Remember when it looked like Cesaro was gonna get at least a small push after beating Seth Rollins at Wrestlemania?  Now he's getting crushed by the Academy.  I don't have anything against the Academy, but wtf???

Sadly classic WWE. Hell, even classic Cesaro booking at this point. He's Dolph Ziggler 2.0. Incredible performer who has been booked into oblivion.
