The 2 hours blazed by, and left us immensely entertained

Smackdown definitely won this week. Even though Raw had Goldberg, and was entertaining in parts; Smackdown Live did something that Raw failed to do, ie. keep us hooked from beginning to end. It wasn't the perfect show as we’ll get into very soon, but there were several cool moments across the show.

Smackdown Live had a hot crowd, hailing from Newark, NJ (not Atlantic City as Mr. Hawkins would have us believe); who were packed into the Prudential Center. Even JBL was fine tonight and actually made us laugh at one point.

Let’s revisit the show, and examine the highlights.

#1 Best: The main event rocked!

Like JBL said- somebody call PETA

The build for this story, all evening, was very well done! Not only did A.J. Styles and Dean Ambrose have a brilliant match, they told a great story. One where two competitors had faced each other so many times and studied each others’ move set so well; they knew the counter to one another’s moves.

In JBL’s words- ‘It was a thing of beauty’. Ellsworth’s interference was something that was expected, but also something we were wary of. Thankfully it was very well executed, and meshed brilliantly into the storyline.
