Already a few months past since I watched my last WWE show besides NXT. I was committed to actual writing work for money, so didn’t have the time. But I did make time to watch this newest edition of SmackDown Live because, come on, you can’t miss one of the rare occasions of Dean Ambrose playing the referee in WWE. I’ve got to say a few bits about that and also why I hardly enjoy WWE these days. Have fun!
For the second edition of SmackDown Live the WWE did a whole lot better than last week. Having JBL talk less was one part of it; having Daniel Bryan talk more wasn’t. The focus more and more turns towards Dolph Ziggler and I wonder how big the piece of cake will be for Dean Ambrose in this scenario. What actually happened and my thoughts and theories about it, you can read here. Enjoy!
A new era started on Tuesday when SmackDown Live aired – like the name suggests – live with an exclusive roster and still WWE Champion Dean Ambrose. Everything sounded good but with Vince McMahon exclusively responsible for this show, things weren’t executed as well. Here are my thoughts and resentments about it. Enjoy!
Dean Ambrose had his first title defense on live television earlier than I had expected. I actually expected this very match, a triple threat against Kevin Owens and Dolph Ziggler. Anything else than a win for the new Intercontinental champion would have been stupid. But since we’re in the middle of the Christmas holiday season, there were also lots of red items, including Dean Ambrose’s head.
