A show in which the promos managed to outshine the wrestling

Last night, Sasha Banks and Charlotte put on one of the best wrestling main events in Raw history, and gave us a show to remember. Smackdown Live, heading into No Mercy this weekend, was a fairly memorable show; but wasn’t quite in the same league as the red brand this week. Coming to us from the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego,California; there were things to both like and dislike about today’s episode of Smackdown Live. So let’s continue with our analysis and examine what worked, and what didn’t in today’s show. 

THE GOOD: Here’s what we liked about Smackdown Live 

#1 The Dolphumentary 

Be it during the show, or on Talking Smack, Ziggler was on fire!

All the advertising for ‘No Mercy’ showcases The Miz and Maryse, instead of the Triple Threat Main event. Somehow the Dolph Ziggler-Miz feud seems like the real main event of the show, instead of the world championship title match (despite the fact that John Cena could tie Ric Flair’s record and make history).

Dolph Ziggler is in the best form of his life, cutting promos with passion and conviction, and the Dolphumentary that was designed to ‘bury’ him, brought out his inner fire. Ziggler delivered a really passionate promo, one that echoes with truth and tragedy.  The return of the Spirit Squad was, of course, an added bonus.
