This week, SmackDown Live was an easier watch than RAW

For me, RAW just seemed to go on and on. SmackDown Live was short, concise and for what it is worth, entertaining. This is a recap of all of the two hours of action from England, for the second night in a row. Two hours that flew by quite fast indeed.

As we head towards Money in the Bank, the programs don't seem as important as a month ago. Somehow, everything seems to be in a state of flux, of utter confusion. Things should settle down in the weeks that follow.

Let's hope WWE has a long-term plan about where they want to be heading. For what it's worth, here's my take on this week's show.

Let me know yours in the comments...

#1 Best: The London crowd

The audience would not let AJ Styles speak!

WWE really needs to do more shows in international locations. This week, the UK crowd was hot through the course of the evening. Perhaps even more so than they were during RAW. They would not even let Daniel Bryan speak during the first segment of the show.

As one would expect, Paige got a great reception from the UK crowd as well. They reminded her, over and over again, that 'this is your house'!

A hot crowd always sets the pace for the rest of the night, even getting the people watching at home invested in the action. That is precisely what happened this week on SmackDown Live.

Take a bow, UK crowd!
