Another edition of SmackDown Live is in the books as the WWE Universe continues to reel from one of the most explosives WrestleManias of all time.

At the Showcase of the Immortals, The Man Becky Lynch claimed her spot as top of the Women's division, whilst Kofi Kingston finally completed his odyssey for the WWE Championship.

Last night continued on the trend of shocks and surprises, including a shocking title change, as well as some huge appearances by RAW Superstars.

But not everything was plain sailing on the show, and there were plenty of pitfalls along the way.

Here are three things that WWE got absolutely spot on with this week's huge episode of SmackDown Live, as well as two things that they could have improved on.

#3 Got it right: Exciting tag team action

Randy Orton appeared post-match to attack the former 205 Live Superstar.

In case you were wondering, yes, a match pitting Aleister Black, Ricochet, and Ali against Rusev, Shinsuke Nakamura and Andrade was awesome!

A fun match from the get-go, the faces all posing cross-legged was an especially nice touch.


An exciting bout full of offence, it seemed the finish could have come at any second, though it was Black, Ricochet and Ali who emerged the victors, with the former 205 star pinning Andrade.

Post-match, Randy Orton emerged to hit Ali with an RKO, whilst Kevin Owens stunned Rusev, possibly setting up two big feuds in the near future.

This was a great match to showcase talent, and if nothing else, get fans excited for next week's Superstar Shake-Up.

Will any of these huge stars end up joining the red brand? Find out next week.
