Best and worst of SmackDown Live- 19 September, 2017
The Oracle Center in Oakland, CA bore witness to the latest episode of SmackDown Live. The primary focus of this episode was the aftermath of the vicious attack on Shane McMahon by Kevin Owens from last week.
The show revolved around that essential premise and it had both ups and downs, across the two hours. As as been documented by several individuals on the internet, the live attendance was dismal. However, all said and done, this was a far more enjoyable show than the go-home show of RAW before No Mercy.
It's time to revisit the episode and look at what we liked and what we did not, in our 'Best and Worst' list, as always. Share your thoughts in the comments section and let us know what you think of our list, readers!
#1- Best: Long overdue push for The Queen
With all due respect to Natalya and Naomi, the SmackDown Women's Championship picture seemed a little underwhelming with those two women contesting for the coveted prize. With Charlotte Flair as the Number 1 contender, the championship suddenly means a lot more, and so does the entire division.
It seemed almost criminal to keep Charlotte Flair on the sidelines, when she carried the division on RAW. We're glad to see her in the thick of things, and as she has proved before, she can have great matches with Natalya, as the two women have supreme natural chemistry.
It was also classy on Charlotte Flair's part to provide a health update of her father, a man who's been struggling with health issues recently. We don't necessarily know about her turning face, after doing so well as a heel on RAW, but for now, everything is fair in the world of the Flairs.
