    Who do you blame if your Vince? Is Jinder just not getting over? Is Randy not as over as Vince thought he would be? Or is it just not having Cena on the show?

    • Buzzkiller73

      VINCE IS TO BLAME! Lame storylines and undeserved pushes! Vinces’,universe,Vinces’ fault!

  • Terra Ryzing

    It’s cuz there hasn’t been a Perfect 10 on the show the past couple weeks.

  • SemiAwesomeGil

    Jinder Mahal in the main event scene is just not working out. Nakamura absent, and I don’t think Tye Dillinger had a match. Overall this was a very weak SD, and weak build up to Backlash.

    So Smackdown – start the show with ugh Jinder Mahal – end the show with ugh Jinder Mahal – so glad it was the end, just turned the tv off…sad show leading up to Backlash.

    this is just me but bray should not have been swapped and should still be champ. no one gives a crap about orton and the jinder experiment is not working so far. you have sami and job him, aa job them. orton as champ is joke wait till jinder wins and smackdown falls below 2mil. vince plan to kill smackdown is working.

    Y’all laughed when I said the shakeup was going to screw up everything. Well looks like everything is quite the mess after all. Hate to say I told you so but well…..
