Not the most exciting episode of SmackDown Live
Not the most exciting episode of SmackDown Live

Until the last few moments of the show, SmackDown Live's Fastlane fallout episode was a dud. The end salvaged it to some degree, but it is clear SmackDown Live is not doing well. The writing felt haphazard and the storylines felt half-baked. And this is happening at a time when we're just days removed from WrestleMania 34.

Welcome to the 'Best and Worst' of SmackDown Live. As always we invite you to leave your comments in the section below. If you thought differently from us, or even if you echo our sentiments, please let us know.

For our part, here's our analysis of the latest episode of the WWE blue brand!

#1 Best: The final few moments

It's always a shame when the best part of the show has us fast forwarding to the last few minutes. We believe that this segment was a great foreshadowing of the actual WrestleMania match. From the looks of it, it will be a triple threat contest. Owens and Zayn set the stage in a painful manner for Shane McMahon.

We loved how they dragged a McMahon all the way to the back. The disrespect was felt through every single move. The powerbomb on to the ladder was an epic finishing touch.

Looks like Shane McMahon's leave of absence will become mandatory now, at least in storyline, based on recent happenings. McMahon should have a lot of babyface sympathy when he does return before WrestleMania 34.

What crazy stunts do you think he will pull off, this year?
