10 “Say What?” moments from WWE Smackdown Live - November 1st 2016
Who will represent Team Smackdown Live in three weeks at Survivor Series?
Following Raw on Monday night, the Survivor Series matches have begun to take shape, and this Tuesday was Smackdown Live’s turn to announce some members of their Elimination match teams.
But they weren’t the only issues that needed resolving on this week’s show. After last week’s shocking turn, what is next for Randy Orton and The Wyatt Family? And how much longer will James Ellsworth be a major player on the blue brand?
There was also the continued build to the Smackdown Women’s Championship match, set to take place next week in Glasgow. With all these elements crammed into a 2-hour broadcast surely this week’s Smackdown Live would be a stacked show, but did it play out that way?
#1 Recapping Raw
I included a similar point in last week’s “Say What?” moments, when Smackdown Live used a panel to hype Raw’s exclusive Hell In A Cell pay-per-view, and this week they aired a segment recapping this Monday’s Raw.
Why on Earth would they do that?!
They are in direct competition with each other, yet Smackdown Live keep using up time in their broadcast to talk about Raw. Stop doing this; it makes no sense whatsoever.
