WWE Smackdown Live Reaction -
American Alpha Is Here!!!
Check out my great, good, bad, and pathetic from Tuesday night's edition of Smackdown Live.
- American Alpha debuted and they were excellent!! What a great showcased that allowed them to show the main roster audience just how great all of us who follow NXT know they are. Great booking.
- I liked Ziggler's fire i promo with Ambrose to start the show. While I wasn't a fan of Ambrose's delivery, Ziggler was very convincing.
- I love Bray Wyatt's attack and challenge even more!! And I liked the action in the Main event. Very good action.
- Lesnar attacking Orton was predictable but still very effective. I like when things are paid off. This feud is hot!!
- I loved the promo between Cena and AJ. There was some good lines in there by both, a few inside baseball lines, but it was still good in building up another match between these two. Styles has to beat Cena clean at Summerslam.
- Apollo "Creed" Crews is the new number one contender for the IC title, and he did so by beating Kalisto and Baron Corbin. I mean, it was alright. I'm just not that impressed by the way they have treated Crews. He won by schoolboying Kalisto. A better win would have been a dominating power move on Corbin then Pinning Kalisto with his finish. I don't know.
- I liked Natty's beat down of Carmela. Natty should be the veteran who wants to teach all these young undeserving women a lesson. Great role for her.
- I also liked the gimmick injury for Eva Marie, as she cowards her way out of not competing in the ring. I like it.
I wouldn't call anything bad about tonight's show, but I was concerned about the lack of wrestling. I get that they are building to Summerslam and they have to build the feuds. But there was some very long promos on this show that could have been replaced by a good AJ styles match or a good showcase for Kalisto, instead of wasting him in that three way. I just think that this show needs to be more of the wrestling show, since its a two hour show and should never really drag. I hope they add more meat to the roster pretty soon. And where was Shelton Benjamin? We need you like now!!
