    Smackdown looks weak tonight.

  • Mohammad Abulawi

    not bad would love to get more details but looks like a good smackdown except why is delrio squashing sin cara. and oh my god for a go home smackdown this is better than usual 3 good matches not bad wwe not bad at all

  • Randy

    Yeah it’s really weak and why did they do it the same day as raw like right after it

    • kel

      Originally Smackdown was supposed to be taped Tuesday from Colorado Springs but due to the wildfires they cancelled the show and double taped last night

  • Andersen

    Zackdown sucked.

  • Graham Hodis

    smackdown is getting worse and worse by the week.

    If I were vince I would scrap it altogether and just have RAW.

    May be the extra hour (as it will be 3 hours from 23/7/12) could be for smackdown talent only with some matches.

  • Anand

    Did they tape Smackdown the same night RAW was airing live? Guys like Sheamus, Jericho etc who were on RAW were on Smackdown as well?

    Usually smackdown is taped on tuesday nights right?

    • zacky chan

      it was cancelled because there were fires were they planed to have smackdown, so instead they just taped it after raw ended.

    • Man

      SmackDown was taped the same night right after RAW because of the Colorado wildfires.

    • Logan_Walker

      Yes But As Reported Here (http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/wwe-taping-all-television-tonight-official-information-local-promotional-material-seeking-correspondents/) By WNW They Had Cancelled The Taping On Tusdeay & Moved it to Im Guessing After RAW

    • john

      yeah its usually taped on tuesday but sometimes they have a supershow where they are both done and the same night

    • Dylan

      They taped it last night because they were supposed to tape it on Tuesday in Colorado Springs but that is where they are having the wildfires.

    • Tna

      The arena where smackdown was going to be taped got damaged by a fire so they had to tape smackdown after raw

    • Jas

      They had no choice. The arena that was supposed to tape Smackdown tonight had to cancel due to uncontrollable circumstances. I'm positive WNW posted a story about it late last week.

  • nWo 4 Life

    Goldberg is moving up the pecking order… Slowly

  • smithmiester

    Zackdown = FAIL!

  • disapionted viewerer

    why didnt zack ryder do anything with his gm powers like book a match @ MITB or RAW for the US championship

  • Ral

    I think they had to tape smackdown because Of all the fires they cancelled where it was going to be

  • Justin

    WWE taped them last night after Raw. Reason being that Smackdown was scheduled to be taped on Tuesday as usual in Colorado Springs. Due to the fires WWE cancelled the taping and just added Smackdown to the Pepsi Center.

  • n1ck

    you can’t judge a show you haven’t seen. try some logic people

    • Jon

      I am willing to bet that if it was TNA, you would not be saying that.


    WTF. Can they ever let Sheamus lose?!?! And CLEANLY.

    • sal

      sheamus is cena 2.0 another horrible smackdown that i will not watch. man is wwe getting bad.

  • Tom

    Ryder didn’t put himself in money in the bank or a whc championship match…… Facepalm

  • jwalker684

    Hey didn't Rybeck fignt that guy last week? Or was I dreaming?

    • hurrigame

      Yep, you're dreaming. Last week he fought Hawkins with Reks in the corner. Now they've switched places.

    • You were dreaming

  • ballzdeep34

    ryback fought hawkins last week. .. Why the hell is ziggler being buried. If I drew any conclusion from that match up are they gonna put him in an angle with santino? Wat are they giving me to look forward to? Didn’t they give ziggler a jobber entrance on raw? For gods sake they shoot themselves in the foot daily. Sheamus is the most stale champion I’ve ever seen. He sux as a face. Also I don’t miss a second of wwe programming but wen big slow comes on I can’t help but fstfwd. For shits sake can they please just give us some good matches. I am lookin forward to the primo singles match but itl only last like two minutes I bet. Sheamus is a dissapointment and ziggler is ignored for no reason. I’m so tired of bein let down mann.

  • Bob

    So, I guess reading match outcomes and segments determines if the show will be good or not. Maybe the matches were actually pretty good? How do you guys know, unless you were in attendance? Or is complaining just inscribed in our genes that we can't help it?
