So let's go ahead and get started with the news for the day.
So, um, news this week, Uh, it's a couple of big things Did.
Couple of big things did happen this week.
Um, first off, we got some clarification, and I believe I mentioned this last week when, as it happened, um, while the Lina Vega was pretty much just on her twitch channel, just opening up about the whole situation regarding her release, I did mention during that time during my review of Raw that she did mention that she opened up and Onley fans account, and now it has been confirmed that that has been the primary reason that she has been released now.
And she says it is nothing salacious or quote unquote malicious within the Onley fans account.
She just wanted toe show off her cosplay costumes that she believed would get flagged on Instagram.
So she believed that that's just a soul purpose for the Onley fans account again. Nothing salaciousness.
Ah, nothing promoting any debauchery or anything.
But of course, we all know by now the reputation that just the name alone off on Lee fans does have.
But apparently she is really defending herself and her decision to go on the platform.
So, um yeah, and again we talked about her talks with he sag AFTRA, the actors union, and we'll see what comes out of all this again.
It'll be hard, especially.
I think she it takes one person to bite the bullet and then we'll see who else if anyone else will come and support her or will actually are willing to lose their jobs and support again, as I stated on Monday, is gonna take to the point where the current superstars, if they do something now, they're not gonna be benefiting from it immediately.
It's going to be at the benefit of the superstars that are not next in line, but after the superstars that are next in line.
So for people, for especially within the pandemic toe asking people to kinda put their morals ahead of their obligation to provide for their families.
Do you see it? Do you kind of see something like this happening? I mean, where it kind of becomes a snowball and starts building up momentum and where you have talents from W W who are willing to leave, they telling themselves they've made enough and they feel like they could make enough outside of W W E.
Where they can leave and take a stand.
So that's one piece of news.
Another piece of news.
The Thunderdome will be moving residences.
Starting on December 13th, December 13th, the Thunderdome will leave its home of the Amway Center in exchange for its new home at Tropicana Field, Uh, in Tampa Bay.
So moving from moving everything from Orlando to Tampa Bay, Uh, speculation, I believe, uh, rightfully so that with the beginning of the new MBA season starting shortly after.
I believe it's gonna be starting just before Christmas that they want to make sure that they at least have home for the foreseeable future.
And since there won't be any baseball until until presumably April again, we don't know if they're going toe.
Push that back or if they're going to keep the baseball season going at schedule, but they will be able to use Tropicana Field, which does have a retractable roof, is very large, too.
How they're going to be able to use that venue in that type of atmosphere is going to be interesting to watch.
I mean, they've been doing it with football fields.
They've done it with baseball fields, with the most recent royal rumble being at the Houston Astros, I believe energy length or synergy link field century link, I believe.
Centurylink field in Houston.
Um, so I believe they're showing that baseball fields can apply, but the thing is, they were able to use the baseball field and make it a good atmosphere with fans.
So whether or not uh huh the Thunderdome atmosphere was still come across within such a spacious, uh, such a spacious venue has Tropicana Field will be interesting to see and how they can get the acoustics working and everything that that would be very, very interesting to see.
So, yeah, and then once baseball season starts, then where do you go? I have an idea, and you're already linking this with WrestleMania.
There's a football field going to be available, same football field that you were supposed to do WrestleMania and the last or earlier this year in 2020 Raymond James Stadium.
So only thing with that is that it's fully outdoor.
I don't believe Raymond James has like a retractable roof.
I think is just a giant state.
So maybe you can get away with that.
Who knows? Who knows? Maybe you can find, like a football stadium in Orlando or soccer stadium or somewhere to go that has a retractable roof.
So who knows Who knows, who knows? But we do know that's after the animal the center residency has done.
They're heading over Tampa Bay for Tropicana Field for the new W W Thunderdome.
So, and with that, I'm going to get to our final piece of news.
So this and again news updates brought to you by post wrestling, the premier new source for all things pro wrestling in M m A.
So And they're working extremely hard now because if you're not already following post wrestling, if you're not already listening to the podcast, the co proprietors, co founders, if you will off post wrestling John Pollock has had his second child him and his wife.
He and his wife have had their second child.
Your son, Max, is about two years old now, and they've had their second child, Evie Pollock.
So congratulations to John Pollock.
Wish you all the joy and happiness in the world with your second child bringing your first daughter into the world as well.
So hashtag girl.
John Pollock and your Pollock family So But while he is away, the mice will play.
And one of the mice has been a very, very busy mice. Mr.
So he is following up on a story that John Paul it was actually reporting on throughout the year.
Um W w E announces a $39 million lawsuit settlement.
So there are a couple of shareholders.
There was a fire department and I believe there was a city government who are filing lawsuits against W W E S O W W announced that they have settled a lawsuit against them that was filed by the City of Warren, Michigan Police and Fire Retirement System.
So the retirement system okay? The shareholders claim that W W E lying about their business dealings in Saudi Arabia, causing their stock prices to drop.
According to the suit, W W E did not alert the shareholders of their failed negotiations with Saudi Arabia regarding a new broadcasting deal.
So if you've been following this closely, uh, you do remember that this was the same court case that was going on that involved two anonymous sources that had to give depositions that pretty much pretty much verified the claims from, I believe, 2018, when the whole debacle between the Saudi Arabian government and W.
W we talent trying to leave from doing crown jewels, I believed Thio hit to smack down and how that was delayed and how Smackdown had to shift gears and have the next talent come and take over.
I believe about a year ago today, like a couple of years.
I think it was last year in the last year or a couple of years ago.
But I believe it was right before Survivor Siri's because there are doing the whole triple brand battle for supremacy.
And so that's when the next pretty much came in and took over.
And, yeah, the cir***stances leading up to that there were, ah, lot of, um, a lot of hearsay and anonymous reports before saying how it was pretty much a spit show, if you will, um, of armed guards just standing intimidatingly if that's a word within the path of W.
W E superstars who were trying to board a plane and then also standing in the runway in front of the plane and saying that nobody was leaving until they spoke with Vince McMahon about something.
So now there were two depositions within this court case going on or within this lawsuit going on, that pretty much confirmed those reports from back then.
So it was really interesting to see how that stuff came out within the course of this, within the course of this court case or this not court case.
But this lawsuit so W w I guess they they were found to be liable and Instead of just being just being called guilty, they went ahead and settled with the police and fire retirement system from Warren, Michigan.
So I don't know.
I mean, I don't know how to feel about that.
I really want I mean, will we see more information be leaked from that case? I mean, Freedom of Information Act is open for any reporter, so we'll see if any other information it's pertinent to either back to that incident or to anything else involving the business dealings of W W E come up to the surface, so we'll keep an eye on that.
So, like I mentioned before, Mr Adam Thompson is a very, very busy man, and he was not able to update the notes for the Smackdown card.
But as I go through the card for SummerSlam or not SummerSlam Survivor series, all these essence it's a liberation.
I love a liberation, but then sometimes it bites me right in the key street.
You know what I'm saying? But survivors Siri's and I'm going through the roster for that or going through the lineup for that.
I'll just mention things that have been happening or have happened on W W Smackdown this evening.
Okay, so first money check one more time to see if he's posted anything because instead of posting things he was on, he's going to be live on the post wrestling podcast giving updates there.
But I believe I saw something.
He was able to get a busy man. Busy man.
Mr Thompson, Shout out to you, brother.
All right, Smackdown! Notes.
Smackdown! Survivor! Siri's teams are set.
Murphy vs Rollins.
Alright, so Smackdowns Go Home Show featured the Blue Brands Superior, Siri's or Survivor.
Siri's teams getting rounded out along with Murphy pinning Self Rawlins.
Alright, so, as you see by the picture, here is a team, uh, Live and Ruby Live Ruby and Bianca.
Bel Air earned their spots through their triple threat matches.
Natalia finally earned her way onto the team by defeating, defeating to mean it and then mhm and a kind of bait will not baiting switch, but kind of sneaky move.
That kind of undermines everything that they've kind of been alluding to.
Or we're trying to make as a key portion with these four women earning their way through qualification matches qualifying matches, if you will uh huh.
It was announced that Oh, Adam Pierce, WWF tissue official Official WWD official.
Hey, you know what? I'm just going toe pick the last.
They they the men's and the women seem I'm just going to make the decision and choose who's going to be the last member.
And based on the two qualifications of being a known leader within the Walker room and being of championship caliber, he chose Bailey to be the fifth and final member off team Smackdown for the women's side.
And for the men's side, of course, you gotta have some continuity.
You gotta use those same two qualifications for the men's side.
So what did he do? He chose oldest.
What's oldest? He ain't no champion.
He ain't never been no champion.
He ain't never been no leader.
What that blew me like, good for oldest.
But I'm like that made no sense like you just under minded the whole kind of reasoning behind having thes other four competitors, these first four competitors earning their way into the team.
It was kind of honey like he was saying all this about Bailey and then with Otis, who he introduced on the team before he got to Bailey, he was like, Oh, yeah, I just feel sorry for hip.
He's been having a rough going there lately, so I'm just gonna throw on my bone.
Like what? Come on.
Be so that was crazy.
All right, so I mentioned that.
So now it's sick.
We have team role.
Shane a Basil, er, Nyah Jacks, Lana Peyton, Royce, Lacey Evans.
Those five women versus Bianca, Bel Air, Live, Morgan, Ruby, Riot, Natalia and Bailey.
So those teams are set, and for the men's scenes you have raw shame.
Is Bron Stroman, Keith Lee Riddle Try not to call them That Room and A.
Styles, aka Fire Face, Mongoose, Broglie, Skipper and Dopey versus the Smackdown team of Kevin Owens.
Kevin Owens Jay you So King Corp In else Kevin was J.
So King Corbyn oldest was so best person.
Yep, all right, So, uh, to appoint himself Rollins, he took on Murphy in singles competition.
Murphy was accompanied to the ring by Dominic Ray and Aaliyah Mysterio, and he pulled off the victory after hitting Rollins with the Murphy's Law.
So he just cut to the chase.
But let's first talk about the gear.
If you guys more paying extreme attention like I usually do, like I just and it's not a knock or anything.
I just pay attention to like the little things you could see.
They had similar gear on with the black tights and like the silver like line structures on the sides.
But Murphy put a little.
He put a little added emphasis on it, and I guess this is, since he's not on the summer slips.
E keep calling SummerSlam survivors.
I guess this is kind of like his pay per view match.
So he had Messias Layer, which is kind of an old to Seth, for being the beast layer with a beast layer with, um, Brock Lesner and being the King Slayer over Triple Age.
So it's kind of like a nod slash dis Messias layers.
So I kind of like that.
Like the little touch that he put on it.
It was a hard hitting match, two very, very good match.
These guys were just putting it all out there, and it's interesting to me how everyone else when they do a super plex from the top rope they're selling you know.
Oh, it hurt me as much as it hurt the other guy, Not Seth Rollins.
He was like, Oh, boo, I bumped back, I bounce right on back and I hit you with a falcon Narrow.
Oh, yeah, because I got all the energy.
I don't understand that, but and he's been doing it for years to Oh, and he broke out the buckle bomb.
We thought the buckle bomb was banned and he hit the buckle bomb.
Was he supposed to hit the? I don't know, but he hit.
It was a good match, man. Good man.
Back and forth, he hit him with the stop to As Murphy was trying toe work his way in the ring, he hit him with a stop in the middle.
Oh, but Murphy was able to get his leg on the rope and destruct account.
So very, very good match.
These guys just get it all.
And you could pretty much you could do whatever you want with Saffron.
One season made, man.
Uh, of course, he's got to back to back losses against both Ray Mysterio and Murphy.
But like you keep you keep warm and heat him back up in a flash.
Just like a day in your burn.
We could take a loss and still be pushed as a legitimate direct folks.
So Oh, speaking of debark, we'll get to that.
After being ambushed by James.
So several weeks later ago Oh, Daniel Bryan returned to smack down and got his wind back over J.
So before that, Daniel Bryan was just standing in the back, and this was after the and I don't think they're going to address that match.
So I guess I could go in.
All right, He's not gonna address that match.
So I'm gonna go kinda in chronological order before I get to this.
So let me just cut to me real quick.
Guys in the truck.
We're gonna need a one shot.
We're gonna need a one shot of me in the truck, please.
All right, Kevin.
Get your stuff together, Kevin.
All right? Yeah.
The amount of money I pay these producers is off the chain, man.
How just the quality that they're given is just ridiculous, man.
Not worth what I pay them Okay, um, but we actually started off the show with it's which we started off the show with the street barf.
It's pretty much it was just pretty much a cold Open the street profits who have rechristened the Champions Lounge for themselves And then, of course, Biggie.
You know, there's been this tension is back and forth between Biggie, who is representing the new day and the street office.
Because, of course, they're gonna be meeting one another at Survivor.
Siri's so big egos.
Well, you know what? You don't have to keep talking behind their back because they're here.
I'm like, Wait, what now what? And all of a sudden he does the intro and Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston, the guys who were drafted off of this show who weren't supposed toe ever be back here are now back like, Oh, you're just don't even have to draft gnome or it's like, yeah, I ain't even got the beef like this is worse than having like the clans go to the other show and beat each other at least that some of the story that 00 this is a special man.
All of these people coming over and they just wrecking shop.
No, this was what this made no sense.
This is like, really they could just walk on the show and then had the nerve to tryto offer tank championships and really there really acting like heels right now.
They might be turning the new day.
I think they might be turning a new day because, uh, John Pollock mentioned it on Rwanda.
Raw the raw review class.
If you guys don't really follow, please go ahead.
Check him out on all your available podcasting.
But yeah, he was mentioning how there promo with the hurt business.
Pretty much made them look like total dorks and and heels.
And I was like, Well, I see a little bit of that, But now this this promo right here on smack now really made them look like heels.
They were actually Golding trying to gold Robert Rude and Robert Rude and Dolph Ziggler, toe fight King Corbyn and Sammy Zane for a chance at the role tag team championships on Smackdown.
I don't know how that works, but they were actually trying to gold them into beating each other up.
And then, of course, but Robert Rude and, uh, Robert Rude and dull, Secular.
We're like, we're not dummies on.
And they turned on the new day.
And so I'm, like, get him! And then straight profits come out.
And, like, Why are you guys coming out? You guys see the wrong segment went first.
See? Then you guys could've saw what you should have done as we'll get to during the women's championship face off segment, which is another head scratcher.
But I liked the ending a lot more than I like this in.
But why are you coming out to defend them when you were just talking all the smack for about 34 weeks Street, Why are you coming out to defend them? Let them get beat down.
I don't understand.
But they came out.
And so we proceeded to our teddy long, huh? Tatty match Bang eso.
We have ST profits and a new day and again Crabs in a barrel.
Brother Malik Shabazz is not here today, but he might be here on Monday.
But that a tag team match playoff.
So we got an eight man tag match, got to tag team champions facing off against dog Ziegler Robert Rude, King Corbyn and Sami's eight.
So everyone's fighting.
However, Sammy con****uously is hanging off the apron, giving orders, but never tryingto actively tag in.
So, of course, what happens? Robert Rude tag, Sami and Sami.
He's He's just livid.
I didn't have the tag, bro.
What are you doing? I wasn't legal.
What are you doing? And then he gets dragged in and ST Profits get him up with the anointment from the heavens.
123! Street profits gets the win for their team.
And of course, you have a face off between ST Profits and a new day who are going to be facing one another this Sunday.
So moving on, then we get the backstage.
Daniel Bryan is just waiting backstage for us interview and Sami's and comes out arguing with the rest again.
Come on, man, you need to lose your job.
And then he looks at Daniel Bryan and he continues to berate Daniel Bryan, saying, I'm not respected and I'm getting set up on all the blood and blah, blah, blah.
And so, Danny Ryan, I love day.
He just puts his mask or mid sentence as Sammy is just spouting off nonsense.
And then he just pushes.
Just push your Sammy down so we might be seeing something after Survivor Series, we might be seen Daniel Bryan make a run for that intercontinental belt.
We might do you mind.
So then we get to his interview, and he's talking about how jail so has a devil in his ear.
He's like the devil's making them do things that he really doesn't want to do with it.
Daniel Bride was like, Well, I got a devil in my ear or you when I'm at home and my family looking at me and I can't help them out Who do you thinks admire you? Five.
Thinking about getting into the ring and I can't make it.
Who do you think in my ear? So he kind of turned it around? Could promote by Daniel Always good to see Brother Brian and with a new haircut.
Not good to see the haircut, though.
It just looked like a old man haircut.
He's got like, the sides trimmed like the sides like skin faded or skin tapered.
And then, like everything else, kind of flowing over top.
I don't know how to describe it, but don't know.
Yeah, it's okay.
I'm sorry. It's not too bad.
Um, and then jail.
And only devil like that is right here.
And you're right.
It's not personal.
We're gonna see them in a rematch later on in the main event.
So Oh, so let's get to the women's face off.
So we got an Oscar who comes up again? Role raw talents.
Just They just saw Drew McIntyre Come on last night or last week.
Rather, and they're like, Oh, it's that easy.
It's that easy to come back out.
I should have been doing this already.
So Oscar comes out and Sasha comes out.
Um, I believe Sasha came out right after the Seth Rollins man.
So as Murphy is celebrating, then you just hear Sasha's music.
I'm like she's going come and they've been doing that lately.
Like, That's weird how they've just been having people interrupt like they literally had, like people who are walking out of the ring and then the entrance.
Music comes on and people walked down the ramp right past up, and it is like there's no interaction, like I think they did that one time when Lacey Evans where she just walked out and it was just It was like a big built up segment before.
And then she just walking out like you, Nasty.
And she just keeps it moving.
It was like, Wait, that was odd.
Um, but yeah, we got something similar, but at least they went to commercial toe.
Let, uh they went to commercial first toe.
Let the mysterio als head on out first.
And then Sasha was waiting in the ring for Oscar card.
They had the typical back and forth.
Now, Oscar was kind of being, of course, the over a top Oscar.
And then she decided, you know what's a perfect time to do right now? Just gonna go back and recite some of my favorite catchphrases from W w E n.
She said something about Oh, you didn't know she did the whole road dog spiel.
And then she did the You can't see me John Sr spiel and, you know, dog on Sasha doing her best to get through all this, uh, funny thing that comes to mind.
Um, I know it's been said a lot like through podcasters and journalists how it seems that Sasha she doesn't know how to play the best good guy like she's best as a hell, and it just seemed like here.
I mean, she was pretty much one note.
She just did what she does.
Well, it was just played pretty much to heal when, like Michael Cole, who was kind of moderating the back and forth, said before she took the belt from Oscar, she took the raw championship from Oscar.
And instead of saying, You know what, Oscar, I was in a bad place back then.
And now I see the error of my ways, and I'm trying to be the best champion that I can be.
But in order for me to be known as Yeah, true Champion, I have to go through you.
That would have sounded good.
No, she said, Yeah, I took it.
I was like when I thought you were a good person.
What? I mean, she did eventually get to the whole respect thing, But I'm like who? Well, yeah.
I mean, some people you could say, like the rock was a one note guy is like whether he was a face or a hell.
He was the same dude.
He was just making fun of people.
Like what endeared him later on was just him being like Dwayne sometimes.
Like when he come back When he came back and 2011, he was just like, I'm I'm just the way and I'm just happy and just being so gracious and then mixing that in with the taunting and with borderline bully pretty much so, Yeah.
I mean, it worked for the rock.
Hopefully, um, hopefully Sasha can find kind of a balance, more of a balance where she can kind of play mawr of the good side instead of just being a straight hell all the time and just pretty much within matches.
Just relying on who you're going against, deciding whether you're going to be here.
Because if she's gonna be the same character, and then it just depends. Like Bailey.
She was ****y and well, Sasha was ****y, and she was brash against Bailey.
But family is just a true traditional hell that it just overshadow the badness in section.
But now you got Oscar, who's a traditional baby face.
It was tough kind of silly sometimes, but she's tough and she's well spirited and, well meaning I should say so.
She was, uh, Sasha can push a bit of mawr of the hell up so that she could be more the bad guy in that in that particular face off.
So then so I should just kicks off and heels.
And she was like, Hey, we both hear why wait till Sunday? And that's always the phrase Why don't wait till the paper view, that's all.
That's how you know nothing is ever gonna happen when they said we don't have to wait till the paper view.
Yeah, you were pretty much you're gonna wait till the paper and you just ensure that nothing is gonna happen to the paper.
But she's like, we don't have to wait till the paper you She just kicked her heels.
By the way, the girl could dress man, whoever style I said it before, But whoever styles her, they need a raise.
She had, like, this whole blue warm per on kind of warm per like a split down the middle, like connecting like the top in the bottom, and it looked like a blue bandana and she was wearing a blue bandana.
Now I would kinda caution her.
Thio kind of relax on that since she's from, I believe she says she's from Cali first, and then she moved to Boston and And your your cousin Snoop Dog is a blood.
And you up here wearing this blue you may wanna chill out on the blue, You know what I'm saying? Especially if you're in California any time.
Chill out on the blue, Just blue.
But it was looking good.
She was looking good.
Um, but yeah, just raising off and then just cheer the chatter and it looked like they were going to come to blows.
And then who comes up? Of course.
The untouchable one.
Carmela, attack Sasha Banks for mind.
Really? You didn't You didn't learn your lesson from the past two weeks never to turn your back like this.
Third straight time, you're just gonna get attacked from behind.
Oh, and so But as Carmelo was attacking her from behind, all of a sudden, you see the look in Oscar's I change.
Like she went from the whole happy go Lucky.
Oh, I'm just saying all these catchphrases and all this stuff to hold? No.
Sorry about you Look like this is who the street profits should have learned from.
She was like, she ain't got no problems with me.
And she was just back up, and she was watching very, very closely.
She wasn't helping Carmela and jumping Sasha, but she wasn't stopping her from jump in south either.
So ooh, subtle hints.
Subtle, subtle hit.
Maybe we might get a turn from Oscar.
Or maybe it's just a case of Hey, I'm convenient against you on Sunday.
I don't care what happens to you.
Like some people that noble like the street Pappas.
I guess you wanna call them Noble.
Hey, we want these guys fresh so that they don't have no excuse on Sunday.
And then you got Oscar is like, I beat you already like I beat you after I rustled a match and you had the advantage on me.
So let me go ahead and get this advantage.
On Sunday on Summer slam I had to wrestle your best friend and I had to wrestle you and I had to take it like a grown woman like that. I am.
So you gonna take this beat down from Carmella? And then you're gonna come and see me on Sunday? So who knows? Who knows? Didn't last thing before I run down the card for Sunday.
We had the contract signing for the W W E Champion.
Drew McIntyre vs Roman Reigns, the universal champion.
So some good stuff, Some good stuff, um, promises.
Just like your number to beat.
Oh, it was so good.
He's just like it.
You're the guy they call when I'm not available.
I was like, Oh, that is so wrong.
Well, that's so wrong.
And, man, it's just like if they do this right, I'm not saying I'm not saying that is going to be, Ah, one toe, one comparison.
But I'm just saying that if you have the two biggest guys in the company going against each other, the only make one logical comparison and that's rock versus awesome.
So if they do this right and you have these guys like I know before when you had vested Roman reigns and you had psychopath Drew McIntyre, they had their whole feud with one another involving Dolph Ziggler and undertaker and all this other stuff Shane McMahon for some reason.
But just think Now you can start the building blocks, like continue on with the building blocks of this rivalry and now start making it mean mawr start having the stakes become a little bit more high.
I love some sticks.
Well, I'm vegetarian, but no, I love that sticks in professional wrestling.
Just have it mean mawr Eso this.
I think this is going to mean more.
And now you're going to get Drew McIntyre.
Who's going to want to prove that I'm not secondary just because you you left on your own volition volition? You remember? Mhm.
Just because you left on your own volition doesn't mean that I was just handed down as the the back up the understudy.
I earned my spot here and now I'm on raw and I'm leading wrong.
So I'm going to show you that I deserved to be here in the I think he was just saying Go ahead and under estimate me or you can take this seriously and prepare for war.
Prepare time for war.
You don't know that l l cool j look good stuff war.
Um, but just the smug, smug attitude of Roman, right? Just cracking the cheesiest smirks so smug Geraldo still love? Oh, yes, he's just playing this.
You're just playing this, this whole bum hole character.
It It's layers, man.
I'm enjoying it, man.
I am enjoying it.
All the so Yep, that's all.
We got promote from those two, and they signed the contract.
So I was waiting for Roman to kind of be like, You know what? I don't have to sign the contract, right? It's like he's doing it.
Yeah, like my thumb straight for the third time.
And I'm doing this like I don't have to sign the contract on your terms.
It matters, but he signed the contract right then and there.
So your boy, your boy, Adam Pierce, didn't have to go from hell on earth.
Go look for him and having signed it this time.
So good stuff, man.
I don't know the beginning of the show.
It kind of rubs me the wrong way with again.
You're pretty much showing that the you're pretty much showing that the draft doesn't mean much in that was supposed to be a brand Versace brand thing.
Isn't really meaning much because you're just having people come onto the show like you didn't have anybody come over to roll to promote this.
You didn't have anybody from Smackdown to come over on Monday.
Now you have everybody and I kind of get it because Smackdown is the fox show.
It is a big baby, you know that? You're trying toe push and promote.
But they first off they didn't promote any of this.
They didn't promote all the pretty much all the champions from raw coming onto Smackdown.
They didn't promote any of this.
And then you just bring it on us.
It's like the draft.
Like I said, it's like the draft doesn't really mean anything, so yeah, but other than that, I thought it was a decent show.
I thought, the can you Brian versus Jay? Who's so interactions? Good.
Oh, and Daniel Bryan picked up the victory.
That's the thing I didn't mention.
It was the main event.
These guys were just slugging it out.
And I love how they were trying toe that we're bringing in the crowd noise with the yes chance and your boy j.
So he answers like I guess, uh, What? Daniel Bryan was running up for the running knee and gets caught with a super chicken.
And Jason was like, Ain't no yes, Ain't no.
Yes, that's a bell.
And then he hits like two other super kicks and then tries to get to the top ropes and leaps off for the USO splash, but gets caught with the with the knees as he's coming down and then gets rolled up, kicks out the roll up, but then gets rolled into the yes, lock the lab l lock and he taps out, helps out.
And Daniel Bryan gets the victory, picks up the victory so he gets his win back.
Good match. Good match.
I thought he was going get attacked from behind like you did before.
But they went off the air with him doing his yes chance to the virtual crowd chatting behind himself.
There was one thing I wanted to mention.
I really don't know. Oh, the cutaways.
They've been doing these cutaways to go to commercial.
Just been nonsensical, like during the match between not Mystere, Murphy and Rawlins, Like Rawlins is pretty much attacking the entire Mysterio family.
And then he throws Murphy into the barricade on the outside.
And then he has Aaliyah, Cop Corner like Aaliyah, trips like she's a white girl from a horror movie and she just tripped on nothing.
And then Seth Rawlings is slowly making his way towards her, and as the camera pans to his face, it face the black were in the commercial.
Like what? Uh huh, another head scratching moment.
I'm like, Why would you do? And then kind of similar toe how e.
Think it was last? Not the last episode of Raw, but the episode before the last episode of Raw, where they had the whole thing, where the Team Rahal participants from the mid side We're kind of having a tag team match against one another with a J being the special guest referee and a J just getting dropped and Molly walked.
And then your boy, Big Jordan steps over, look at all angry and then, just as he's looking angry at people trying toe, defend his friend because the black like Why? Why would you do this? And then when you come back, he's back on the outside.
Same thing with tonight.
They cut back from commercial.
They come back and everybody's back up on their feet.
Like all the mysterious is okay, They're they're rounded around each other like, Wow, why are we doing what? And the some of the thing happened in the I mentioned that because of some of the thing happened in the Daniel Bryan versus James So match where J.
Russo cleared the table and he was about to put Daniel Bryan through it.
But Daniel Bryan was fighting his way back, and, you know, they're fighting on the outside.
And then Daniel Bryan, trying to rear up and run through with a running knee on the outside but then gets tossed and big body dropped through the table and then cut the black walk like like this is just picking up like they cut the black when stuff is just about to pick up, it's not like it's a pause, like it's made for boss.
It's not like somebody dives on the outside and the guy who got nailed with it is laying down, and he's like, uh, the other guys like on.
Then we cut the brake like I understand that one.
But after you just hit a big move or after you have, like a big storyline thing, that's kind of leading up to it.
And now you're cutting them commercial.
It's weird, I don't know.
You see, it wasn't the best Smackdown, but it was a decent Smackdown.
It did good in leading us into Survivor series on Sunday.
So with that go ahead and run down card and I failed to mention, I failed to mention that there will be a battle royal.
So to start all the pre show, we get up here to start off the pre show.
That will be a cross promotion battle.

So again, the dual brand battle royal competitors to be announced to be determined all right.
