OOfficial Discussion Thread for: SmackDown (September 5, 2017)

Tonight on SmackDown: the main event pits Shinsuke Nakamura against Randy Orton, with the winner becoming the #1 Contender to Jinder Mahal's World Title.... while Nakamura had an open and shut case for an insta-rematch, considering the way the Singh brothers cheated during his initial title shot, it is odd that they are selling this as a kind of clean slate situation, and that Orton (who already had a tortuous 4 month feud with Mahal) is the guy placed in the way of Shin's rematch....

Best idea I can come up with is that maybe they've decided against doing Nakamura vs. Mahal inside Hell in a Cell (which would have been the obvious storyline development, if you kept focusing on the Singhs), and are either "demoting it" or just don't want to be booked into a corner where Mahal would be perceived as an incredible underdog without his goons.... Kevin Owens vs. Shane McMahon could easily fill in as the main event, and might even benefit the most from using the Cell as a prop...

If that's the case, they'll need to punch the Warp Speed button on Owens/Shane tonight, so that Shane's pissed off enough to step back in a Cell for the first time since Taker at WM, and not just annoyed and bemused at Owens' antics...

SD has done a good job setting the table for the rest of the show, too: in addition to the publicized main event, we can also count on.... (1) more of AJ Styles and the US Open Challenge, and probably more of Baron Corbin being a dick about it.... (2) Dolph Ziggler debuting his new "All Style, No Substance" persona... (3) Nattie vs. Carmella in a non-title match, but which could easily turn into on, if Carmella feels she gets the upper hand, and Nattie is vulnerable (with Ellsworth lurking, anything is possible)... and (4) a rematch between Sami Zayn and Aiden English, to make up for the match last week, which Shane had to strike from the records due to Owen's Referee Hijinx...

More with Breezango and maybe someday finally possibly revealing their attackers, the continuing jetpack attached to Bobby Roode's back, and the merciful absence of JBL are all other things to get ready for, too...

That is all. End communication....

The flOOr is yours, OO Nation. Don't wait till after 11pm to post, either. Pre-show previewing and prognosticating is certainly welcome. So discuss, debate, and rate!

And just like that, no more JBL. Good luck, Graves.

ETA: Jesus Christ that's the surliest Canadian I've ever seen. Fucking hell, Kev, this is SD Live not ECW circa 1996. Golly!

I was singing "Dolph Ziggler Sucks".

...If CoPersonality would've started, I think I would still be laughing my face off. THAT would be epic trolling of the WWEUniverse.

~ My Thoughts on the Matter of Tonight ~

I liked that spot during the Baron Corduroy/Dillinger match where he slid out of the ring, went around the ring post, and then got back in and clotheslined Dillinger. Also, I guess we could use some more throat jabs. No one seems to go for the throat enough! NEVER ENOUGH.

Has Dillinger been allowed to do anything of note so far during his main roster time? From what little I've managed to see, he seems solid enough. Yet it feels like I've read things that sound like he's just sort of gotten shuffled off to the side.

I'm going to judge that Carmella/Ellsworth segment by my general lack of interaction with their stuff on SD to mean that Ellsworth is now being reduced to a mere sex slave after too many hilarious hijinks that nonetheless backfired while investigating Scooby-Doo-esque mysteries that weren't being covered by Breezango. Maybe Ellsworth wore a bowler hat and a fake moustache at some point.

This main event's alright too. Alriiiiiiiiiiight. And I can't tell if the person in the crowd with the lime green sign has it upside down or not.

Edit: I'm also pleased to have Orton get kicked in the face. Or ankled in the face, going by that replay.

Ooh neato, Vince to address the Shane/Kevin situation on SD next week! Too bad it's the series finale of Janerd! this week. Oh well, I had a good run. Lol, j/k no I didn't.

Fun show tonight. Dunno where they're headed with Dolph, especially if he's well onto the downside of his career or on the way out. For some reason I want to keep an eye on him as an unexpected Rumble winner. Maybe they give the dude some gold on the way out considering he's not going to be able to walk without pain in aboot 5 years.

Welp, it's been fun gents. All yOOu miserable fucks can get bent and suck eggs. Avenge me something something, keep on giffin' tranny porn for no discernible reason, and don't forget to participate in the ULTIMATE FINISHING MOVE SHOWDOWN!!!1!1 'cause Matte put a lot of work into it. Shame I never got at dat butthole tho...

Is it still noteworthy when someone pins both John Cena and Randy Orton clean in the span of about a month and a half?

You know Daniel Bryan tonight was mentally saying, "Why can't it be ME who has the feud with Kevin Owens instead of Shane and ends up getting to wrestle him...."

Maybe not quite as noteworthy as it would have been a few years ago, but I'd wager that Nakamura is the first guy to ever pin Cena and Orton clean in just over a month's time, so I think it's still a pretty big accomplishment.

And the Shane/Owens storyline has been surprisingly entertaining thus far and really kicked into high gear tonight (Owens' "your family would have been better off if you hadn't survived that helicopter crash" line got a legit laugh out of me). I'm curious to see where things go with Vince showing up next week, as you kind of have to assume it ends with Owens laying a beatdown on him.

Owens and Miz always fighting for that best heel in WWE title. This week: Advantage Owens.

I agree, that's Shinsuke's best main roster WWE match so far. The counter of the RKO into the armbar was sweet, the pacing was nice, good show all around.

I dunno what's going on with the Carmella/Ellsworth stuff, but I popped when she smacked him.

I still feel like Ziggler's shit is just leading to Bobby Roode kicking his ass, but we'll see.

And he did it as a stepping stone to get to Jinder Mahal. Surreal

Wow. When you put it like that..... They really have tried to strap a gigantic rocket to Jinder, haven't they? They should try putting him over the Undertaker next, and compare results with ... That Dawg.
