3 Interesting observations from this week's SmackDown Live (January 8, 2019)
From Becky Lynch becoming the #1 contender for the SmackDown Live Women's Championship to Daniel Bryan mocking the WWE Universe's consumerism, this week's edition of WWE SmackDown Live (8th January 2019) featured a lot of contrasting moments indeed.
The episode itself was quite breezy and decent. The preliminary segment and the main event of the show delivered on all fronts. Be sure to sound off in the comments section below regarding last night's SmackDown Live. Did you think RAW did a better job this week?
Nevertheless, with Royal Rumble just three weeks away, let us take a look at some interesting observations you may have missed during this week's edition of SmackDown Live...
#3 'Spontaneity is key' was a common theme for both RAW and SmackDown Live this week
In a previous article which highlighted a few moments that you may have missed from this week's Monday Night RAW (Jan 7.), we learned that the phrase 'Spontaneity is Key' applies to Professional Wrestling as well.
Both RAW and SmackDown Live this week kicked off with a sudden hard cut to a spontaneous brawl or monologue occurring in some part of the arena. Over on RAW, Seth Rollins and Bobby Lashley were slugging it out backstage as a horde of talent tried to separate both of them apart.
On SmackDown Live last night, Daniel Bryan was present near the concession stands with several fans surrounding him. Bryan criticized consumerism and went one step further by taking out his aggression on some random people at the same time.
This shows that there are minor changes occurring within the main roster format, all we have to do is wait and watch in order to find out if this change lasts or not.
