  • People Power

    The best match is the dark match.

  • Latoya

    How many times is Ziggler going to get the crap beat out of him by Batista?

  • Jaime Villasana

    Batista kicking ass on raw and smackdown !!! Deal with it!!!

  • FearTheSpear

    i wonder if eva has gotten any better in the ring

    • jmull

      She could just come out and walk around, and I would watch that more than any other diva segment/match.

  • Laurence

    Ziggler’s never going to make it in WWE now. Bryan, Lesnar, Cena, Orton, Wyatt, HHH are the top level, Barrett, Sheamus, Cesaro, RVD, Swagger, Uso’s are mid level and Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns are the future. Miz, R Truth, Sandow, soon Langston are all with Ziggler in no man’s land trading wins and losses like they’re not important in matches with no build up week after week. But they can’t go anywhere because if they go on the indies they won’t be taken seriously or have any credibility because they’re ‘gimmicky’ characters and TNA is on it’s way out. I’d like to see them drop down to NXT and rebuild themselves. It seems like a good place to develop a good character.

  • Bryan

    I’m exhausted. Usually i get on here and make people attack me verbally. If anyone like the product right now, then good for you. But me, i’m just wore out. With bray wyatt thing too because we all know cena won’t lose at payback. I hate him so much. Plus rollins and ambrose somewhat being held down so the green guy can shine. And if anyone likes roman fine, more power to you. Dolph and sandow could’ve been back up plans to this daniel bryan injury. But due to underutilization, that won’t happen. I know ambrose will never be used correctly. Right now i’m just hold on until the shield breaks up. I just wanna see what direction they go with the guys. If ambrose is ousted from main event plans then i’m completely shifting to Roh njpw etc

    • Cena Sucks

      Couldnt Agree more this company is ass backwards you have this mega over talented Star in brayy wyatt and cena is gonna win another fued that will do nothing for him its selfish andbdont tell me its vinces choice if cena wasnt happy he could change the outcome easily vince cares more about getting cena over than anything else and its a failing sinking ship only way its gonna change is if cena dies wich at this point im all for

  • Punisher

    best match of the night

    Cameron and Naomi defeated Eva Marie and Nikki Bella

  • Naoise

    I was at the O2 last night for smackdown, fairly certain you forgot to mention the wrestlemania rematch between bray and john at the end…

    • DeanAmbroseIsLife

      That was a dark match after Smackdown, that was exclusive for you guys.

  • Dev9h

    I like how they’re putting Batista against Ziggler, because Ziggler is probably the only guy that could make Batista look good.

  • Ellsworth Allah

    i like dolph ziggler but i’m with evolution all the way…#itsamystery

  • Ellsworth Allah

    it should’ve been an RVD main event

  • Ellsworth Allah

    by the looks of the ads i thought bo was a good guy,oh well

  • jmull

    And why the Fuck are they bringing in more guys to pad the mid card (Adam Rose, Bo Dallas, etc? More bodies to fill space in shows, have matches with absolutely no build or reason, or to get a one month push over other mid carders only to go nowhere? The main event is already crowded, but hopefully this means they will push guys like Ziggler, Sandow, Barret, and the MIz and make the US and Intercontinental titles legitimate again (but I’m damn sure not holding my breath).

  • cj

    I can never watch SD! Because I hate the edited fan reactions, and the editing is so bad lol

  • jmull

    Remember when SmackDown didn’t suck? Now it just feels like a 2 hour version of Main Event — a bunch of throwaway matches that do nothing for the storylines. Hell, if something noteworthy does happen on SD, they show it to you on Raw 50 fucking times anyway.
