3 botches and mistakes you missed this week on SmackDown Live (August 13th, 2019)
SmackDown Live this week was the final stop on WWE's lengthy weekend in Toronto, Canada as part of SummerSlam weekend and it was quite obvious that there were some tired legs out there after a few nights at The Scotiabank Arena.
Much like this week on Monday Night Raw, there were a number of errors that could have been a combination of the WWE stars being overworked or even just exhaustion setting in. SmackDown Live this week was dominated by the continuation of the Kevin Owens/Shane McMahon storyline as well as the hunt for whoever it was that tried to attack Roman Reigns, twice.
Interestingly, there have been no further attacks this week, but Buddy Murphy has been the victim of two attacks of his own in recent weeks since Reigns and Rowan believe that he knows more than he's letting on. SmackDown was definitely a strange episode this week, but did you pick up on these errors?
#3 Daniel Bryan tripped over his lines
Daniel Bryan has been dragged into the Roman Reigns storyline in recent weeks since Buddy Murphy revealed that he saw Rowan at the scene of the crime a few weeks ago, but did point out that he was on his own.
Bryan hasn't taken too well to Rowan's reputation being dragged through the mud and this week he declared that he would prove to the WWE Universe that he was innocent and then he and Rowan decided to attack Buddy Murphy until he admitted that he was lying, which didn't really prove anything.
Bryan has become almost obsessed with proving that he and Rowan were not the ones in the frame for the attack which was seen this week on SmackDown but the repetition of many of his lines became an issue for him in the men's locker room when he tripped over his lines whilst interrogating Murphy.
