Best and worst of SmackDown Live after WWE Elimination Chamber 2019: NXT Superstars in action again
- A big announcement from Shane McMahon made many fans happy!
SmackDown Live was a nice show. That's all there is to it, quite honestly. Something extremely significant happened that we did not see coming. But at the same time, nothing on the show was particularly bad except for the points we have outlined in this article.
I just fear for the future of SmackDown because it just seems like the 'lesser' of the two shows. I don't know if this comes from the fact that Champions get pinned regularly on SmackDown Live. I know that The Revival got pinned on RAW, but the red brand protects its champions, almost always.
So, it's time to list the good and the bad for your reading pleasure. As always, be sure to let me know your thoughts and feelings about this week's show.
Even if you disagree with my thoughts and review, feel free to let me know in the comments section.
#1 Best: Kingston vs. Bryan is finally made official
There was a 6-man main event match to close the show this week. As one would expect with the six individuals involved, it was a fairly good match. Not an exciting match, since we saw them in various permutations and combinations over the past week or so. But a pretty good match nevertheless.
And this match concluded with Kofi Kingston pinning the WWE Champion. Now, normally I would not be a fan of such a move because it's necessary to make your Champion look strong. But in this case, it was necessary so that a big match could be made.
Kofi Kingston will take on Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship at WWE Fastlane. This is a pretty big deal considering that Kingston has never been Champion.
And he's been in the company for eleven whole years!
