5 Mistakes committed by WWE this week: 16th May 2017
Find out mistakes the WWE committed on Raw and Smackdown this week.
Another two episodes of Monday Night Raw and Smackdown Live bite the dust. In a reverse of recent fortunes, the Monday night show ended up trumping what the blue brand had to offer on Tuesday night.
This is especially disappointing considering this was the go-home episode of Smackdown Live with WWE Backlash coming up this Sunday.
While Raw came up with the perfect response to losing Braun Strowman to a long-term injury, it wasn’t a perfect show. After all, which episode of Raw ever is? But, it was a refreshing change from some of the same old stuff we’ve seen in the past.
Smackdown Live, on the other hand, was an extremely bland affair and was littered with questionable booking decisions. The episode did very little to hype up the next pay per view on the WWE calendar – Backlash. Fans really look for more on a go-home episode before a big PPV.
So, without any further ado, let’s get into the 5 mistakes committed by the WWE for the week of 16th May 2017:
#5 More Hardy Boyz vs. Sheamus & Cesaro singles action
Surely there has to be something different that these four men can do other than boring old singles matches week after week on Monday Night Raw. This time around Jeff Hardy took on Sheamus and predictably picked up the victory.
Sure the dynamic might be a little different since Sheamus and Cesaro turned heel but nothing other than that has changed. Matt and Jeff keep winning while the Irishman and the Swiss wrestler keep losing. What is the point of this?
The most important about this match was Sheamus’ hilarious botch where he looked to catch Matt Hardy – who was on the apron – with a Brogue Kick but missed him completely. He needed an extra attempt to pull it off. It’s not great when the best part of a match is a botch.
