Twitter reacts to WWE SmackDown Live (December 19, 2017)
It wasn't a bad show. It wasn't a great show. It was just the typical SmackDown episode that had momentary bursts of energy.
The expectations were high after a solid Clash of Champions PPV, and WWE did a decent job of booking progressing storylines heading into Royal Rumble.
Twitter, as usual, was the place to be as the fans reacted to the biggest moments from this week's episode. There was a retirement teaser, a dream team competing in a six-man tag match and of course, Rusev Day. How can Twitterati stay calm, eh?
Here is a compilation of the best:
Dolph Ziggler sent the fans into a frenzied state with a teaser that possibly hints at the Show off hanging up his wrestling boots. The perfectly executed teaser has kickstarted a whirlwind of speculation regarding his future apart from the hilarious reactions it gave birth too.

Ending with the main event of the evening, a six-man tag team match between the cream of the crop of SmackDown. Really creative. That assist from Randy Orton though! Thing of beauty!
