A really silly episode of Smackdown Live

This week, Smackdown Live came to us straight from the Sap Center in San Jose, CA. After what was a pretty terrific No Mercy, it seemed like the talent and writing staff just wanted a night off this week. A lot of times, they just seemed to phone it in.

While the show started off strongly, it would spiral into ridiculousness soon after. We believe that the blue brand has enough equity, to excuse the one-off average show. Which is what this week’s show was, truth be told. So, let’s revisit what worked and what didn't. in this recap.

THE GOOD: Here’s what we liked about the show this week

#1 Incredible opening segment 

These 3 have been stealing the show, week after week

From the moment that Dolph Ziggler walked into the arena, to celebrate his title win on live television, him and The Miz stole the show. And how! Their borderline shoot promo was a thing of beauty.

Miz and Maryse mourned the death of the Intercontinental Championship, now that it is in Ziggler’s hands, and Ziggler showed the image of The Miz crying after his defeat at the pay-per-view. The segment would culminate in a handicap match, which saw Dolph Ziggler going over 2 members of the Spirit Squad.

It was a great way to start the show. Sadly, the rest of the night wouldn’t be half as good.
