Smackdown

Unlike its Monday night flagship show RAW, WWE Smackdown isn’t a live show. Instead, it’s taped and edited up for broadcast a few days later. This week’s episode of Smackdown took place in the US of A city of Indianapolis, which I presume must be the biggest Indiana Jones fan site in the world. Here’s what went down that night for the taping of the February 26 episode, via SEScoops. Naturally, there be spoilers ahead. Here’s a picture of Doink the Clown to keep your eyes safe:

Triple H spoke. A lot. As usual. But he’s like totally going to crush Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania you guys and dammit why won’t you people like him more already. Seriously, there’s something wrong with the current push for Reigns if the crowd prefers to get behind Triple H introducing the face of the Roman empire to an announce table several times.

Sheamus, Rusev, King Barrett and Alberto Del Rio defeated the tag team of Neville, Dolph Ziggler, Sin Cara and Kalisto.

Barrett spent quite a bit of time in the ring, with Sheamus eventually winning the match thanks to a Brogue Kick on Neville.

D-Von Dudley defeated Jimmy Uso

Thanks to some interference from Bubba Ray Dudley, of course

Kevin Owens defeated the Big Show

Owens got a win by count-out, after catching the Big Show with a top-rope crotch attack and knocking the giant down to the floor.

Natalya defeats Becky lynch

A Disqualification win for Natalya thanks to interference from Naomi and Tamina Snuka. After the beatdown, Charlotte and Ric Flair appeared to announced that Monday Night RAW would see Sasha Banks go head to head with her pal Becky Lynch.

R-Truth defeats Heath Slater

While Little Jimmy is still missing in action, R-Truth had a little help from Goldust that secured him a win against the one-man rock band Heath Slater.

AJ Styles, Chris Jericho and Mark Henry defeated The New Day

Not even some slick trumpet work could help The New Day, as Styles and Jericho showed off some impressive teamwork. Styles would eventually hit Xavier Woods with the Calf Crusher to win the match.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Commander Admiral Chief
  • Grant [_G_] Hancock

    Ugh… what a weak show. They really need to start beefing up Smackdown now. It has been the ‘B’ show for too long.

    Hopefully the return of Shane will lead to some kind of brand split. Raw / Shane vs. Smackdown / McMahon-Helmsley.

    • Hammersteyn

      Alberto Del Rio needs a push. Once the McMahon are done playing at Wrestlemania. Being in a group of four will help as well.

      • Grant [_G_] Hancock

        He got his push with that aweful return with Zeb… Don’t think powers that be will be investing much in him in near future. He (together with rest of LoN) will have to do the work themselves to stand out enough to earn a shot. So far LoN been pretty pathetic…

        • Hammersteyn

          As well as The New Age, entertaining as hell but I don’t see them going for the world title

          • I’d just like to add that I love that I have WRASSLIN’ nerds who read this word vomit. You guys are the BEST.

          • Hammersteyn

            Vomit? But why?

        • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

          I still don’t understand why they paired him up with Zeb. They could have just gotten Ricardo Rodriquez back

      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        Alberto found his manhood during his time in Lucha Underground and AAA, but now that he’s back in WWE, Vince has gelded him again. It’s so sad to see. So much potential… 🙁 Wasted!

        • Hammersteyn

          They’re like EA, buy a wrestler, use him up, fire him. Rince and repeat

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            I’m just waiting for them to screw up with AJ Styles and Samoa Joe. The writing is on the wall with how they’re STILL trying to push the Rock’s cousin down our throats.

          • Hammersteyn

            The thing is, they’re like Youtube, they’re the go to people for “wraslin” and like Youtube (who are messing up big time atm) they can get away with most things

      • Ben Fuller

        To hell with Rio he sucks. Should never have come back

    • Ben Fuller

      I hope thus angle with Shane ends up in a split from supers how’s and goes back to brand separation and rivalry. Imagine an angle having steph and triple h competing the Shane for brand superiority determined to show Mr mahon who’s hands the company 2ould be best in.

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    Damn you to the 9 hells, Bonthuys!! Where’s my weekly review of Lucha Underground!!!? @Darryn_Bonthuys:disqus

    • I am so, so far behind on that MADNESS. Time to catch up.

      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        Season 2 started a few weeks ago, and the main theme has been dealing with the repercussions of Ultima Lucha (their major event last year).

  • Darren Peach

    Wrestling ? You mean the sport that attracts the bible belt of murica and is responsible for backyard neck injuries the world over ? Not to be mixed with Jack Daniels ? It’s fake.

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      • Darren Peach

        This is sooooo funny.

  • Darren Peach

    Meh, Ladies have the Kardashians, Men have Wrestling………
