It’s just been a few days since WWE Survivor Series and the final day of a very long stretch of live WWE programming, so everyone’s got to be worn out. We can get through SmackDown, right? After all, it’s only two hours, so this is doable.
As we charge forward to the blue-brand only TLC PPV in less than two weeks, there was plenty of good from this episode. American Alpha finally got the chance to really show their stuff in a Tag Turmoil match and there was a solid non-title contest between Becky Lynch and Natalya, but this isn’t what this article is about.
This is where the more questionable stuff gets featured and there’s definitely a few items to call into question. For starters, Dean Ambrose decided to cosplay as everyone’s favourite Canadian officer from the New Generation era, Then, there’s the issue of Natalya losing her hair. Finally, where in the world is Baron Corbin?
Seriously, Kalisto is dying to know where that lone wolf is hiding.
Below, are five points to dissect and all are accompanied by a fancy GIF because everyone loves a moving picture. Keep on reading and see if anything tweaks your outrage.
#5 Missing Baron Corbin
Kalisto had an odd case of bird neck as he climbed up the turnbuckles to finish off The Miz in their Intercontinental Championship Match. He kept staring off into the crowd like he was anticipating someone who wasn’t showing up. The camera even panned in the direction he was looking only to reveal...nothing.
By the time he jumped off the top rope, with seemingly no intention of delivering any offensive manoeuvre, he made his way over to the apron to battle an invading Baron Corbin. Apparently, Baron missed a cue and showed up just a tad late to his own party.
As punishment for botching the ending to this match, Daniel Bryan punished both men on Talking Smack by announcing that they have to compete in the dreaded Chairs Match at TLC. Okay, the chairs match isn’t a punishment but it’s still one of the dumber stipulations in modern WWE.
