smackdown(lite): very lite indeed

I’ve run out of time with Smackdown this week. I’d do it tomorrow or later in the week  but there’s a PPV tonight and I have to go out in an hour or so. Unless I do it right now, it’ll be redundant in a few hours. Sorry about phoning it in. Real life and all that. I’ll do better next week.

THE BEST THINGS ABOUT THIS WEEK’S SMACKDOWN

  • Dolph Ziggler is making his way back into a storyline, and I feel that he may end up in cahoots with Drew McIntyre. This makes me very happy. Also, Drew McIntyre wore a new pair of supermarket slacks. I’ve missed those.
  • Croft & Barreta and Ezekiel Jackson have now got jobs on Smackdown; which is good because they’d be swallowed up by the Cena/HHH/Orton factor on Raw, just like every other red mid-carder.

  • I shouted STRIKE A POSE at the Straight Edge Society and they responded like this. So Madonna circa 1990. Love it!

You got to, let your bo-dy mooo-oooove to the muuuu-sic

  • Todd Grisham quoting a Michael Bolton song, claiming to be a fan of the guy and reducing Matt Striker to fits of genuine laughter. Nice to have you back, real Matt Striker. Mwah!
  • Batista’s introspection.

THE WORST THINGS ABOUT THIS WEEK’S SMACKDOWN

  • Serena’s outfit. Sorry, ladies. I know many of you loved it, but her outfits have been a bit hit-and-miss for me. Too many pointless straps and silly earrings. I think they’re struggling to dress her ample bosom+short body. They should just call me. I can help.

  • Vickie’s Big Blow-Dry = NO!

1985 called. They want their wig back.

  • Maria’s inability to function as a Diva without a boyfriend. Obviously, not her fault. It’s a creative decision. But URGH! Give that girl some freedom!

If someone wants to slap Matt Hardy's face, I won't tell the authorities.

  • And finally, this promo. No more words, just watch and chew down on your fingernails.

  1. I’m not a grammar or spelling Nazi by any means but I’m a big fan of a funny typo so “◦*John* Grisham quoting a Michael Bolton song, claiming to be a fan of the guy and reducing Matt Striker to fits of genuine laughter. Nice to have you back, real Matt Striker. Mwah!”

    Cue images of genius author commentating beside Striker and basically thinking “Wtf?” for two whole hours of his life 🙂

    Besides that, great recap, I think you summed it up perfectly!!

  2. Not Matt bashing! Though he does look like a total nonce when he pulls that white man funk face.
    As for Miss Serena, while I generally envy her clothes (and job), I too am not a fan of the Pat Butcher earrinns. Bit too chavvy!

    • I know. I’m sorry. Every time I bash Matt I think “Ah Abby’s gonna hate me!” But he just makes it so easy. I’ll try to lay off him for a bit. 😉

  3. I discovered this site through the Twitter of Pro Wrestling Eve and I have to say, I’ve been rolling reading every entry. Already I’ve passed the link onto several friends and I’ll be doing that again as often as I can.

    Thank you for adding much needed levity to the shows.

    P.S. The idea of Punk ‘vogueing’ is spectacular. ❤

    • Hi Stephanie

      Thanks very much for visiting and passing the link on to your friends. I’m really glad you enjoy it so much. Keep watching! We’ve got lots of fun stuff coming up, especially in the run-up to Wrestlemania. x
