New champion crowned at SmackDown LIVE in U.K. | WWE
And i love LOVE the build up for the match. Can AJ Styles rope a dope the beast.l?
How will Brock handle A much Quicker opponent than he has ever faced since his return?
Wouldn't surprise me to see AJ drop the title after SS back to Mahal, but Vince knew damn well that Brock needed a formidable opponent for SS.
WWE tours India in December, Mahal will win it back then and honestly that’s for the best. If he’s getting over in India like people claim then it should make for a great moment when he wins it back.
If Brock gives a shit about this it's going to be the match of the decade in the WWE. Two of the best of alltime and their styles complement each other perfectly.
Even if it's a 5 minute squash match watching AJ sell Brock's offense will be e a work of art.
I've read that Mahal isn't doing as good of business in India as WWE expected him to, so that's maybe why they decided to take it off of him. He might win it back during the India tour, though. It wouldn't surprise me but that means they would then have Styles vs Jinder with Jinder regaining the title, AND Triple H vs Jinder on the same tour. What a tour that would be for the Indian fans.
HHH ready for that spotlight again
I'm Curious if Vince is worried about Ratings....
- Cena's Back and on Team SD
- HHH is back and on Team Raw
- Stripping Mahal and Putting it on Styles
- A top face team vs top face team
Something seems to be up
The more it comes to survivor series. The more I see Owens and Zayn having some impact on the end of the 10 man tag.
Not going to see it live ( a birthday dinner for Mr. Fudge at the Keg) but I'll keep track on here and WZ till i get home.
Updated Card - via Wikipedia
I think Enzo and Kalisto are the only two standouts in 205. Enzo is good taking a beating but not good at being the aggressor. He is one of the better ones on the mic. I think he is this generations Bobby Heenan. Kalisto works well with him. 205 is good for Kalisto. There are a few 205 guys I would like to see them give a bigger role. Neville needs to drop down to upper mid-card.
The Shield vs New Day
Not sure who will win this. I am not that impressed with New Day on SmackDown, but they step it way up on PPVs. Them and Usos were amazing in the Hell In A Cell match. I think the build up to this match was good. It fit both groups to interrupt the "other" show the way they did. I think the backstage antics will be not as exciting when both are on the same show, but their match will be fun to watch. Both groups are exciting. Won't be match of the night, but won't disappoint either. I don't care who wins.
The Miz vs Baron Corbin doesn't interest me that much. The only thing that might work is Corbin is one who could pull off winning by pin, even with Axel and Dallas interfering. But I see it either ending in DQ or interference or whatever, and then the Miz beating up Corbin after the match.
Kurt Angle, Brock Lesnar, John Cena, and Randy Orton were part of elimination matches at 2003 Survivor Series.
Triple H faced Goldberg for the World Heavyweight Championship and lost
Shane McMahon faced Kane in ambulance match and lost.
It was Kurt Angle's team vs Brock Lesnar's team. Cena was on Team Angle. (I am guessing amateur wrestling storyline)
Randy Orton was on another elimination match on Team Bischoff.
7 are currently part of the card. I have a feeling that Kane will have an appearance somehow. Probably to help eliminate Strowman.
205 live is such a lame concept for the WWE. Not really the wrestlers fault, they hype it up like it's amazing but give them garbage on Raw to get over and no-one watches the 205 live show. Not sure how it is at other Smackdown live shows but in Seattle and Portland they essentially bribed fans to stay for it, in Seattle a DB refed match and Portland a discount on merchandise and even then nobody did. Treat it like a second rate indy show and fans paying for WWE style shows won't let then get over enough for the masses to care.
Owens and Zayn vs Breezango on the Pre-Show...I feel so bad for Owens and Zayn but this has to be part of their punishment. Have a feeling they interfere in the Team RAW vs Team SmackDown 5 on 5 men's match though.
There's the problem right there. I don't know if anything is taped before SmackDown, but the fans are already likely waiting in line for an hour or more to get into the building, then an extra hour till showtime, then two hours for the show itself. That's already 4+ hours in one night, and you want people to stay for a lackluster show where nothing major ever happens? Need to change the time of the taping, and MAYBE they will be a bit more successful. Even then, it's in doubt.
Starts off with The Shield vs The New Day.
