You can not expect the Shane-less show to last long, Cageside.
Having missed a whole episode of Raw material, Shane returned to full shape to start the show by denying Kevin Owens access to his mayoralty. And you know what? Shane is not quite dissuading Owens from his actions, is he?
Because Owens wins. Last week, he invaded the arena to spread his complaints and stick to fighters who think they are long-term opportunities on the show. And guess what happened? Shane had to call a "mayoralty" to try to sort things out, while providing many people who Owens mentioned about the possibilities of the show.
Liv Morgan. Apollo Crews. Asuka. Kiriy Sain. Each of them had SmackDown matches and each had an impact. And after being barred by the City Hall, Roman Ravens and others were there to pick up his mantle, telling Shane to kiss them.
Why does Owens stop when he gets exactly what he wants? Ali was behind the scenes to show he wanted a match for the intercontinental championship. Hell, even Buddy Murphy came up!
Owens was summoned to the arena after attacking Shane at the mayoralty where he was forced to fight with Dolph Siegler. It quickly turned into a pseudo-woodcutting match with all Shane's friends who poured into the ring, frowning and planning the fall of Owens. And while they were busy looking for insane, Owens was busy stunning their boss again and launching him out of the arena.
To be honest, this is some sort of grim end. This is not something you need to search through YouTube or anything else. But it's still pretty wild to look at a good guy who gets so well what they want.
Moon vs. Bailey
Wow. That came from nothing.
For weeks the moon was tormented by a dead end of fire and desire. For weeks, their feud was an insignificant filler of episodic television. My, how fast things can change.
After last week's challenge for a team match, Luna had to come out and find a partner to take over the two abusers. This partner was the SmackDown Bailey Women's Champion and this team took Sonia Devil and Mandy Rose in a short time.
But then, the fun started. Bailey was asked in the ring who would be her next opponent, and Bailey quickly said how relieved she was to get rid of Alexa Bliss for good. Now she wants to go back to the SmackDown list and wants to fight with someone new.
Then he turned and smiled at Ember Moon. this. It just does nothing for so long, despite how many times I wrote in these reviews that I want more Moon. And that's stupid, is not it? Yes, WWE should do better with such things, but why watch a gift horse in the mouth?
It's not an epic gathering to put an end to cataclysmic enmity, no, but it's still Bailie vs. Moon. This gives you the opportunity to be excellent, and the first step is to buy as a fan. Now all the things I said about Raw's Raw Women program in the Raw review are also relevant. They have to do a huge amount of work in a very short time. But think of me as a fan of the decision – let's see what these two can do
Randy Orton, Samoa Joe and Elias def. The New Day – Speaking of title contenders, I think we have our next rival for WWE champion Kofi Kingston: Randy Orton. After being mocked by his loyalty to Kingston, Orton hit the NFC to secure the champion. Orton and Kingston have a lot of stories, so this can be really fun.
Charlotte def. Lie Morgan – I think Morgan had the best night of every SmackDown fighter. After questioning Charlotte in the City Hall and accusing her of being totally false – the hell Liv! – also had some great moments in a relatively short match with the queen. Her promise was finally interesting. It will be "more real" the next time, right? Hell, Liv. I can not wait.
Aleister Black def. Cesaro – Cesaro's black kick was great visual. It's good for using something that's available to make Black cool.
Daniel Brian has no words – Such a spell, Daniel. Come on, man. We hope we will hear his explanation for the land next week.
The Kabuki warriors define. IIconics – I wish the Warriors received more support here, but there are so many things you can expect when they are not a consistent part of the show. IIconics has some good boss for cowering away and as a countdown loss, though.
Apollo Krues def. Andrade – Look at the teams that are moving! Over the past few weeks he and Andrade have built up a decent little feud. I'd love to see that there's going to be a bigger move ahead.
If you are a fan of excitement and great moments, this show is probably not for you. That said, it had set the tone for the weeks ahead, there was a comprehensive relationship between Owens and almost everything, and made a decent sense.
Not bad for Tuesday.
