5 things WWE got right on SmackDown Live this week (24 April 2018)
When the 2018 Superstar Shakeup had concluded, many fans exclaimed that SmackDown Live had won this year's edition of the concept, hands down. By comparing the poorly put together episode of Raw last night to this week's episode of SmackDown Live, there is no doubt that the blue brand’s creative team knows how to handle their key players better.
Even though this week's episode did not see Superstars such as Samoa Joe, Daniel Bryan, Sanity and Andrade "Cien" Almas in action, it still managed to use the stars that were on the show correctly and focused more on their storylines heading into the Greatest Royal Rumble event.
Here are five things WWE got right on SmackDown Live this week.
#1 Big Cass is more than just '7 feet tall'
There is an old adage in WWE that if a wrestler is 7 feet tall, Vince McMahon immediately pushes them to the summit of the company. However, while that can be said about Big Cass, there is no denying that just like Braun Strowman improved during his rise to becoming the hottest babyface in the company, Big Cass is evidently making those adjustments to his character as well.
This all started with an excellent promo on SmackDown this week where Cass spoke about his disappointing personal experiences and career failures to produce a realistic reason for targeting Daniel Bryan.
WWE did a good job by presenting Big Cass as a man with more in-depth layers to his character, rather than someone who is just '7 feet tall'.
