    SD Live WWE Tuesday Night Smackdown Live Discussion Thread - April 24th, 2018



    SmackDown LIVE preview, April 24, 2018: Daniel Bryan meets The A-Lister on “Miz TV”
    Last week, The Miz received the news that he would be heading to SmackDown LIVE in the 2018 Superstar Shake-up. Under normal circumstances, that probably would have been good news. Unfortunately for The Awesome One, his return to Team Blue was requested by Daniel Bryan. There is a long history between the two, dating back to Season 1 of NXT in 2010, but the bad blood in recent years can be traced back to The A-Lister’s first turn on SmackDown LIVE.

    Then the brand’s General Manager, Bryan was very critical of The Miz’s in-ring style and minced no words when expressing those views to Miz’s face on WWE Talking Smack. Bryan’s criticism sent The Awesome One flying off the handle in a rant about Bryan and his retirement that left Bryan so furious that he walked off the show. The Miz took things even further, mocking Bryan during his matches by using The Beard’s trademark kicks.

    A lot has transpired since then, the biggest change being that Bryan is back in the ring as a full-time Superstar, and he’s apparently had enough of The Miz’s mockery. What will happen when these rivals come face to face?


    Jimmy Uso takes on Rowan of The Bludgeon Brothers
    Last week, the rivalry between The Usos and SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Bludgeon Brothers became extremely personal when Naomi rushed to ringside to plead with Harper & Rowan not to destroy her husband, Jimmy, and brother-in-law, Jey. The Bludgeon Brothers, perhaps showing a small amount of compassion, ended the carnage.

    The Usos are not going to back down from the massive mallet-wielders in the face of their title match at this Friday’s Greatest Royal Rumble event, as Jimmy Uso is stepping up to take on Rowan in one-on-one competition. How will he handle the monstrous Superstar? Will Naomi heed her family’s advice and stay out of The Bludgeon Brothers’ path of destruction?


    Charlotte Flair and Carmella sign the contract for their SmackDown Women’s Title rematch at WWE Backlash
    The WWE Universe is still reeling from Carmella’s shocking Money in the Bank contract cash-in that saw her take the SmackDown Women’s Championship from Charlotte Flair.

    The Queen isn’t waiting very long to invoke her rematch clause against The Princess of Staten Island. Tonight on SmackDown LIVE, the two will sign the paperwork to make their SmackDown Women’s Championship rematch official for WWE Backlash on Sunday, May 6. What will happen when these two rivals meet in the squared circle?


    Asuka to make SmackDown LIVE in-ring debut tonight in tag bout with Becky Lynch against The IIconics
    One week after Asuka arrived on SmackDown LIVE as part of the Superstar Shake-up, The Empress of Tomorrow will make her official in-ring debut as a member of the blue brand when she teams up with Becky Lynch to battle The IIconics.

    Asuka's stunning SmackDown arrival came this past Tuesday when she saved Becky and Charlotte Flair from a three-on-two beatdown at the hands of SmackDown Women's Champion Carmella and Billie Kay & Peyton Royce of The IIconics.

    The duo of Kay & Royce has certainly been causing a stir since they debuted on SmackDown LIVE, particularly when they attacked Charlotte, which led to Carmella successfully cashing in her Money in the Bank contract. But will The IIconics be ready for Asuka?

    Find out tonight at 8/7C on SmackDown LIVE.

    What a strange fucking promo. Threatening to beat up a jackass heel and sob stories about growing up getting bullied aren't exactly how you get heat.

    Delivery was okay I guess but the Big Cass experiment is off to a lukewarm start.

    My god, Mella looks like she's gotten more lip injections and botox each week.

    Kylie Jenner Challenge champion 2k18. She was kinda cute like a year or two ago, but man. Rough to look at now, and those one piece outfits aren't cute.

    So despite his wealth of talent, and possible ways they could use him as a heel.

    Vince has decided the best route is to keep saying "I cant speak Engrish" and hitting people in the nuts.

    Well, I mean.

    It's obvious as hell she got lip injections and some face work done.

    Whether you think it looks good or not is subjective.

    That ending to Smackdown was legit beautiful. What a visual that was of Nakamura killing Anderson while Styles was forced to watch. I’m 100% on board with Nakamura right now. The pressure is on his ring work now though.

    Can’t argue with the results tbh.

    Which of his so called talents would use better to get him heat?

    Re: WWE Tuesday Night Smackdown Live Discussion Thread - April 24th, 2018

    Nakamura is 1 million times better now than he's ever been in WWE & his new theme song is an awesome heel remix. His in-ring work still questionable though. That match was lackluster. Not enough Rusev/AJ. Couldn't Rusev have cut a promo on Taker to set up a huge Taker match? I would be hyping the crap out of Taker's first non-Mania match in forever.

    I thought before the screwy finish that was one of Orton's best singles matches in a long time. Solid *** thanks to Shelton.

    Loved the angle by The Usos/BBs, sadly Naomi won't be there in Arabia so they're screwed.

    Good angle to keep Bryan from wrestling, but Cass' promo wasn't great. It sure was long though. This bullying stuff sounds like a bunch of nonsense nobody could care about. Wish Bryan would get to wrestle someone else.

    Carmella's promo was not money & we've seen this basic contract signing crap a ton of times.

    On the other hand, The IIconics promo was awesome, they ruled & them mocking Becks & Asuka was great. Match was only so-so.

    Solid ep.

    Man, watching Shelton wrestle Orton was like going back to Raw 2004. And last week I had some nice SD 09 flashbacks when Shelton faced Hardy.

    Re: WWE Tuesday Night Smackdown Live Discussion Thread - April 24th, 2018

    I dont get how some are complaining about how Nakamura is being used. He's freaking fantastic. He is a real heel. For the first time in what feels like a thousand years we have a real heel back in the WWE. We have a heel who does dastardly shit, gets the better of the babyface and does not get jobbed out every week like every other heel does. But perhaps it is indicative of why we cant have real heels anymore, when we finally do people complain about heels being heels. Heels aren't meant to be cool, HHH, CM Punk and others sort of ruined the heel concept by always trying to be the coolest person in the room but you are meant to hate them for what they are doing. They are meant to do underhanded shit.

    I was never a huge Nakamura fan, his talent and especially his charisma was always incredibly obvious though so I have been waiting for the great Nakamura to show up in the WWE, and boy has he ever as a heel. All those little elements and aspects to him just stand out so much more as a heel. And again I am loving that we have a real heel back in the WWE again. We have a heel that actually does heelish shit, and antagonises the babyface as opposed to the typical WWE heel ala Miz who talks a big game, but never does anything dastardly and jobs every time they're on TV. Nakamura has quickly become the most entertaining act in WWE, and thats a quick turn around considering before Mania he was just kind of there.

    And speaking of Miz, Big Ass being on Miz TV instead of Bryan really set the tone for what was a really, really lacklustre Smackdown until Shinsuke saved the day at the end. Just everything that happened after Cass and his generic CAW music came out until Nakamura kneed Festus in the back of the head just felt meaningless. The visual of AJ trying to crawl over to Anderson to save him while Nakmura swooped in and blasted him in the head again was beautiful.

    I’m probably in the minority here but I’ve liked Shinsuke since he’s been in the WWE, more so than most. I do agree that his heel persona is the best thing he’s done though. Poor AJ Styles should really invest in a cup, but it could be worse he could keep getting kicked down there like Taker was doing to Brock during the feud.

    I dig the new remixed theme too.

    Big Cass was okay on Miz TV. It’s the typical big guy vs little guy scenario they’re going with here. I won’t judge it I’ll wait to see how it plays out.

    Yeah, that Shinsuke Nakamura theme is fucking badass! Japanese Rap sounds so dope lol. I've been enjoying Naka's heel run, all this arrogance and sneakiness is perfect for his character. It's definitely given a more personal touch to the AJ/Naka feud as well, and I think their match at Greatest Royal Rumble is going to be great as we've got a clear face & heel.

    It's crazy to think that in 2018 we are getting a storyline involving Orton, Banjamin & Hardy. Don't take that as a complaint though lol I'm enjoying it - good to have seen Shelton get a win.

    To be honest with the amount of awesome tag teams now on Smackdown I'm just waiting for this feud between the Bludgeon Brothers and the Usos to end since they have been going at it for awhile now along with The New Day.

    Like many others have said Nakamura's new theme is badass and really puts over his heel persona alot more since it is meant to stop fans singing his theme - hoping that when this Nakamura/Styles rematch happens it makes up for the meh showing at 'Mania.
