    SD Live WWE Tuesday Night Smackdown Live Discussion Thread - May 1st, 2018



    SmackDown LIVE preview, May 1, 2018: Shinsuke Nakamura demands a public apology from AJ Styles
    After suffering another low-blow at the hands of Shinsuke Nakamura that nearly cost him the WWE Championship, AJ Styles flew off the handle at the Greatest Royal Rumble event. His WWE Title Match against Nakamura ended in a double count-out, which gave Styles the opening to exact a little payback on The Artist.

    Styles pummeled Nakamura at ringside and over the announcer’s table, then bashed him with a steel chair before diving over the ropes with a Phenomenal Forearm that sent Nakamura crumbling to the arena floor before he could escape. Because of Styles’ actions, WWE’s Rockstar is demanding a public apology. Will The Phenomenal One give in to his rival’s demands?


    Jeff Hardy to appear on “Miz TV”
    United States Champion Jeff Hardy left Saudi Arabia still the United States Champion after a successful defense of his title against Raw’s Jinder Mahal, despite the meddling of Sunil Singh. The Charismatic Enigma can now turn his focus to Team Blue and the Superstars ready to try and take his star-spangled title.

    But before Hardy gets back in the ring, he’ll have to face the hard-hitting questions of WWE’s A-Lister on “Miz TV.” How will The Miz try and throw Jeff Hardy off his game? Will the United States Champion be ready for whatever The Awesome One has planned?


    Charlotte Flair and Carmella lead trios in Six-Woman Tag Team action
    The intensity in the SmackDown Women’s division is heating up as Charlotte Flair prepares to challenge SmackDown Women’s Champion Carmella this Sunday at WWE Backlash. However, the two rivals aren’t waiting until Sunday to get into the ring. Both The Queen and The Princess of Staten Island will take part in a Six-Woman Tag Team Match tonight on SmackDown LIVE.

    Will Flair, Asuka & Becky Lynch reign supreme, or will the trio of Carmella & The IIconics show them what the future of Team Blue looks like?


    Will Big Cass revel in ruining Daniel Bryan’s Greatest Royal Rumble moment?
    Just a few weeks removed from his return to the ring as a full-time Superstar, Daniel Bryan was putting in the performance of a lifetime during the first-ever 50-Man Greatest Royal Rumble Match. The leader of The “Yes!” Movement entered the bout at No. 1 and lasted for one hour and 16 minutes, obliterating the previous Royal Rumble Match record for longevity.

    Big Cass, who entered the fray at No. 49, went right after the “little man” he’s targeted since his return to WWE. The seven-footer eventually dropped Bryan with a thunderous big boot and ended his unbelievable run by tossing him over the ropes to the arena floor. How will both men react to their encounter in Saudi Arabia? Will Big Cass revel in ruining Bryan’s big moment? Will Bryan be looking for payback just days before their showdown at WWE Backlash? Find out tonight on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!

    That opening Miz Tv Segment was really great. Miz trying to start shit with Hardy and Orton, while making Orton break character.

    I'm really not into heel Benjamin at all. I couldn't care less about this entire trio but I do find Randy's general indifference somewhat amusing.

    Hope we find a more interesting US title program soon.

    Don't worry these guys are playing footsies with the Title right now. I want Miz to hold it so hard, he's money, but I would say Hardy vs Orton I remember had a great Match at the Royal Rumble years ago, so I imagine they'll do it again.

    Minnesota...Canada they are both garbage well at least she didn't say it's garbage like Delaware. Still Iconic are rolling with Carmella now, yeah this isn't going to last long with their egos together.

    On the other hand I can't imagine getting tired of Bar/New Day interactions.

    Yeah the Segments this week blows away majority of the Show from Raw easy.

    I mean the MizTv, New Day/Bar, Joe/Styles/Nakamura Segments were all gravy especially the Joe/Styles and Nakamura one. It teased a future feud with Joe and Styles, while giving us more progressing with Nakamura and Styles heading into the PPV. Joe vs Style was awesome in Impact Wrestling and I wouldn't expect nothing less with those two talents, if they hold it back till Summerslam.

    That AJ/Joe teaser was so so appealing.

    I just started watching the replay on Hulu and I have to say that Paige looks fucked. I mean, she really looks like the drugs have taken their toll already and it’s just sad.

    Sorry for the double post but Cass is already a fail. Can’t wait for him to beat Bryan on Sunday.

    Damn you guys worry too much about Paige's appearance for real, but those tits were out perfectly this week. If anything was a negative from this Show is a lack of Wrestling, more Entertainment in this one. The Cass beating up a small Bryan clone was so stupid to me to watch, how does that make him something worth while to watch WWE? I would say though Cass needs to win versus Bryan, but it's 50/50 to me if that will happen.

    Re: WWE Tuesday Night Smackdown Live Discussion Thread - May 1st, 2018

    Yeah wasn't a show for good matches, it was more segment based which is fine for a go home. That's not to say any matches were bad, they just didn't pop as much as Balor Vs Rollins or Ruby Vs Sasha did. Actually, the womens 6 man was pretty good.

    Joe coming out for AJ, and the tease that Joe might be up next for the WWE Champion if he retains against Shinsuke was cool as fuck. Joe has to beat Roman on Sunday.

    The Cass promo was a backwards step. The use of midget wrestlers to get heat on heels hasn't been funny since the mini-Booker T and that was about 17 years ago, and then to pill it on with the fucking short/little/big/tall puns, it just wasn't very entertaining. Big mistake not to have Bryan on the show, especially when he was at the arena working a dark match. Might as well of let the poor guy go home if you don't want to use him for TV.

    Interesting seeds planted going forward with Paige killing Absolution and Lana hinting that English is holding Rusev back. Is that the first time Lana has ever spoken on WWE TV without the Russian accent?

    I think so Ed! I would love English next week to bring that up, and I'm going to chuckle when Rusev picks English over Lana and she becomes bitter and joins up with someone to see him pay!

    Joe will win.

    Roman's doing a losing streak leading to the heel turn. Joe needs the win going into an AJ feud.

    It'd be the best thing for him, but the ref apologizing and all that screams ANOTHER Brock/Roman match. I hope you're right tho, man.

    Re: WWE Tuesday Night Smackdown Live Discussion Thread - May 1st, 2018

    I'd be more into Cass if he focused less on 'I'MA BEEG DEUDE AND YOU'RE A SMOL PERSON' and more on the fact that he and Daniel Bryan got cleared on the same day but only one of them was all over every wrestling site there is. That's one hell of a coincidence you could make into a fantastic story of jealousy and bitterness and would come off significantly more realistic and nuanced than punting midgets in the face. He touched on it briefly last week or the week before, but from all the talk it seems like that rare, genuine chance to make a raw, compelling story out of sheer coincidence and happenstance has been pushed aside for punting midgets in the face.

    On to more important news: What's this I hear about Lana potentially driving a wedge between Rusev and Aiden? Don't break my heart like this, man. =(
