Miz somehow beating Sanity in a 3 on 1 falls count anywhere match? What is this?
:explode:

It seems like they've got no idea what to do with Sanity, other than to make them jobbers.

I was hoping we might get some kind of Rey/Joe confrontation as they've not done anything with them yet, or even just have Joe on the mic trashing Rey...something!

Thought Smackdown was OK, they're obviously were trying to push the superstar shakeup for next week.

Having Lars attack The Hardys was a little random, just like the Kurt attack. I would have thought he'd go after someone younger :p

Any thoughts on who Paige will be bringing to Smackdown next week to face The Iconics? I'm guessing it isn't going to be an Absolution reunion. Maybe someone from NXT?

I was worried for Samoa Joe for a minute there, great promo, he looked like a real threat...then Braun walked down. Luckily they're kept both looking strong. Hope we don't get a feud between the 2 as I imagine Braun would come out on top.

Smackdown gets:

  • Roman Reigns
  • Intercontinental Champion Finn Bálor
  • Elias
  • Bayley
  • Ember Moon
  • Kairi Sane
  • Lars Sullivan
  • Buddy Murphy
  • Liv Morgan
  • Chad Gable
  • Apollo Crews
  • Mickie James
  • Otis
  • Tucker
So Smackdown has both the US title and IC title currently...

So happy for Buddy Murphy!

With Liv Morgan moving over it could mean the end of The Riott Squad...

Chad has also moved over, so no more teaming with Roode.

On to the show...

I'm just waiting on Kevin to turn on Kofi.

I'm not sure how I feel about Paige manging Asuka and Kari, I think Asuka should be OK on her own, but I guess it gives her something to do. I can see how it would help Kari as Asuka seems to connect with the fans more.

I knew Roman would be on Smackdown when AJ switched to Raw, not much of a surprise.

I was totally expecting KO to turn on Kofi on Smackdown but he didn't, and I was ashamed to see KO behave so absurdly.

Samoa Joe allegedly is going to Raw, he just wasn't used this week due to being super sick.

Definitely glad for Buddy Murphy although WWE should've swapped him and Cedric for Raw/Smackdown. Buddy is with Alexa Bliss IRL, woulda been nice to put him on the same show as his lady. One of the few couples in WWE that aren't on the same show (Another one is Andrade and Charlotte).

Kairi connects to the fans just fine, she's fun and whimsical. But I think it could benefit both of them to have Paige doing the talking for them, since neither one is super fluent in English. They can speak it enough to get by, but they haven't managed to do much in the promo department beyond basically 1 liners.

I was getting confused seeing Andrade and Black on Smackdown after hearing they had been drafted to Raw!

I don't want a Reigns/McMahon & Elias feud.

I'm glad they didn't keep Kevin part of New Day too long, we all knew he would turn.

I guess the original plan was for KO to stay a face, but with DBry having some kind of injury at the moment, they decided to use KO in his place instead.

Andrade/Vega got moved back to Smackdown because Fox wants a strong hispanic presence and WWE stupidly moved both Rey and Andrade to Raw, so they had to move someone back.

Not super interested in Reigns/Elias, but at the same time I'm ok with Reigns doing stuff that keeps him out of the main event for awhile.
