SmackDown 23/6/16 Review

With an explosive RAW and the shocking news that Roman Reigns has been handed a 30 day suspension for breaking the Wellness Policy we’ll see how SmackDown goes.

Matches Quick Overlook :

ALBERTO DEL RIO vs CESARO
Winner : Cesaro

SHEAMUS vs APOLLO CREWS
Winner : Sheamus

JIMMY USO vs AJ STYLES
Winner : AJ Styles

NEW DAY vs THE VAUDEVILAINS
Winner : New Day

SETH ROLLINS / SAMI ZAYN / DEAN AMBROSE 

Well Seth comes down to moan and bitch whilst announcing a open challenge which is accepted by Sami Zayn.

What made this the greatest thing I’ve ever seen is Seth’s angry reaction to Dean Ambrose. Ambrose came to interrupt him and start off a Ambrose Asylum and just every single thing about it just made me giggle including Sami getting all star struck for being on the Ambrose Asylum.

Seth really is like a big baby. I love his tantrums.

CESARO vs ALBERTO DEL RIO
Cesaro wins by pin fall

First off Dave Otunga is bloody awesome on the commentary table. Such a fresh feel and so great that the whole match was actually properly commentated.

This match was just so good. So very good. Cesaro and Del Rio seemed to know each other well enough to counter nearly everything the other threw at them. It kept you on the edge of your seat waiting to see who would actually end up getting pinned in the end.

Cesaro looks mightyat the moment and you have to feel whichever side he gets drafted to its only a matter of time before he jumps right into the main event. Or…. You can only hope. Great win for Cesaro.

SHEAMUS vs APOLLO CREWS
Sheamus wins by count out

Can we keep Otunga? Seriously? Can we? I loved everything he had to say.

The match itself was just as good as their PPV bout but you can see that the win has done so much for Crews who just didn’t let Sheamus get a punch in edge ways. A great match which showed off Crews athleticism but also let Sheamus show off his seriously grumpy and aggressive side.

He didn’t seem to mind winning over Crews with a Count Out though so now they are 1-1 in their feud.

THE CLUB / THE USOS

Have to give it to The Club they nearly made a promo with The Usos interesting. Nearly.

JIMMY USO vs AJ STYLE
AJ Styles wins by pin fall

You see this, THIS, annoys me. Like I get, kinda, Otunga picking Jimmy but lets be quite honest. AJ Styles can beat Jimmy in a heartbeat. Its kind of annoying that we can’t even get to see AJ fight Jimmy and beat him fairly. Its also annoying that they talk about his beginning in WWE but then in the same breath act like he’s never won by himself. It also annoyed me that Jimmy DID look like he was going to beat AJ.

Seriously.

I find the Usos annoying sure I’ll admit that but it just made no sense.

Good match, shame about the ending though have to laugh at the “surprise, surprise the Club get in the ring to celebrate” comment… Well yeah? Why wouldn’t they? Was Jey not planning on getting in the ring if Jimmy won?

NEW DAY vs THE VAUDEVILLAINS
New Day win by pin fall

Well I was kind of expecting The Wyatt’s to show up but in the end New Day just beat the rap out of the Vaudevillains and won the match. The match was slightly less one sided then the Villains match on RAW but was over just as fast.

I’m guessing we’re getting New Day vs Wyatt’s at Battle Ground then New Day vs Enzo & Cass at Summerslam? I loved Bray’s promo after the match it was really good and I do really miss him when he isn’t around. Can’t wait to see these two teams face up against each other soon.

LIFE COACH

Poor Young getting Backlund barking at him. He doesn’t really coach him much does he? He just kind of shouts a lot and ignores Young. Love it though, still makes me laugh all the time.

SAMI ZAYN

You know it would have been funnier and more interesting if Dean had come down for the Ambrose Asylum and instead of facing Seth first turn to Zayn and ask him then about his thing with Owens on RAW.

CHARLOTTE / DANA BROOKE

I love Dana, I really do. She’s much better at promos then she is in the ring at the moment and her relationship with Charlotte still baffles me but I do love her.

BECKY LYNCH vs DANA BROOKE
Dana Brooke wins by pin fall

Well the match happened.

In under 2 minutes Becky was beaten by Dana. Dana actually dominated the match fairly, when Becky did take control she got herself distracted by Charlotte and ended up losing. After the match it was pretty much a similar thing to RAW with Charlotte getting a bit of Sasha Banks in her face.

SETH ROLLINS vs SAMI ZAYN
Seth Rollins win by pin fall

The only thing that would have made the pre-match bit better with Ambrose following Rollins to ring side would’ve been to have Ambrose try to put his arm around Rollins in a friendly manner. The more Ambrose acts like he’s still Rollins friend, the more Rollins gets pissed off by it, the more I love it.

It was a great match to end the night, it was something a little different as well as Sami has kind of been fighting the same few people since coming up to the main roster it was nice to see a bit of a change. Seth hardly took his eyes off of Dean who didn’t seem to care either which way, as Dean does.

After the match Seth and Dean go at it with Seth running away and Dean left standing in the ring. Still kind of wished that with Reigns suspended they just let these two battle it out at Battle Ground, have Reigns interfere in that match leading to a triple threat at Summerslam because I really just want to see Seth and Dean go at it right now.

 

Wasn’t too bad. Opened and closed strongly, missed Breezango this week though. Really wanted to see how their tans had turned out! Unless I blinked and missed them.
