If it weren’t for the mid card, Smackdown Live would be close to unwatchable. Let’s rank the powers!
NUMBER 10: NATALYA (-3)
I really, really want to be invested in Natalya, honestly I do. She deserves all the respect in the world with how long and hard she has worked. Unfortunately, I just can’t find myself to care about the Women’s championship when it is in her hands. Nothing personal.
NUMBER 9: KEVIN OWENS (+2)
I’m enjoying Kevin Owens and his attempts to wreak chaos over Smackdown Live. Stealing the ref shirt and taking over the officiating was classic.
NUMBER 8: RANDY ORTON (+3)
Was that a heel turn we saw? Can snakes even have a heel turn? So many questions! I need answers!
NUMBER 7: GABLE AND BENJAMIN (+3)
It was beyond cool to see Shelton Benjamin back in a WWE ring, and on top of that, he looked great! The standard is golden now!
NUMBER 6: THE NEW DAY (=)
The New Day are still in the mix for the Tag Team Championship, and I’m all for it. They have insane chemistry with The Usos, this feud is best for business.
NUMBER 5: BOBBY ROODE (=)
Bobby Roode has been mixing it up with heels since he debuted on the main roster. Does this make him a face? Does this make him a heel? It doesn’t matter, Roode is just simply GLORIOUS.
NUMBER 4: AJ STYLES (=)
AJ’s US Championship Open Challenge made another return this week; however, it seems like it will be a short return with it being made clear that Corbin is going to have the next shot at AJ.
NUMBER 3: SHINSUKE NAKAMURA (=)
I’m just glad that Shinsuke’s run at the WWE Championship hasn’t yet come to an end. Randy Orton wouldn’t have been my first pick to make the program more interesting, but let’s see it play out.
PARANOIA IT’S THE USOS (=)
The Usos picked up another victory over The New Day this week which gives them the right to name the stipulation for their championship defence. Things are looking good.
NUMBER 1: JINDER MAHAL (=)
My mother always taught me if you have nothing nice to say don’t say anything so I’ll see you all next week!
