Putting the New Day's Cooking show and Asuka's repetitive battles with The Iconincs aside, Smackdown Live was a fun, eventful broadcast that left more narratives open for exploration in the coming weeks.
#1 Underappreciated stars pick up huge wins
The fact that Shelton Benjamin is in WWE for over a year and has not gotten a narrative to work with is an insult to the man's capabilities. Benjamin in his prime was the best pure athlete in the WWE, and now that he has finally got a chance to pick up a win in such a long time is great.
On the other hand, another underused veteran in the form of R Truth faced that same dilemma as Benjamin but only for a much more extended period and Truth's win in his mixed tag team match on Smackdown Live this week was a pleasant surprise. It's great seeing the creative team give these men some momentum that could advance their current runs forward.
