WWE Smackdown (Airing Friday on SyFy):

They demand that action be taken against Sheamus for his recent actions, and call for the Brogue Kick to be banned. Booker T interrupts and asks the WWE Universe if they want the kick banned.

    Honestly intrigued to see how Bryan turns Hornswoggle garbage into worthwhile television. Not sure if the incredible roll Bryan is on can help him overcome Hoswoggle's godawful usage in the WWE.

  • Kerry Ban Erich

    Too predictable. When there is a mention on banning moves, it will happen.

  • chris

    The brougue kick is banned? No worries Sheamus conveniently has that new submission hold just in time for this.

    • Anand

      So, is this the heel turn for Booker??? Is he gonna be the typical heel GM with Eve as his assistant?

      Bad times for Teddy Long in future?? Poor teddy…

    • Wayne

      That Clover Leaf submission is almost like a sharpshooter… but Sheamus could only win easily with Brogue Kick… its hard to lock Clover Leaf in.

    • David

      Not to mention the irish curse and crucifix powerbomb moves

    • Luke

      Sheamus also has the Razors Edge finisher

  • JamieSNZ

    WHY do they insist on trying to push the Primetime Players?? Push a tag team that has talent! How about Kidd/Gabriel or the Usos?

    • Anand

      Without AW the PTP are boring and bland… Better push someone else. When scenarios change, WWE must really change their storylines and adapt instead of sticking to the same old plan…

      Push for Del Rio, PTP are classic examples 🙁

    • christopher525

      Might as well call up Shad and see if he's ready to come back and hook back up with JTG yet, at least they were interesting when they played the characters that Titus and Darren are now playing before.

      • IZBLACK

        Funny you said that b/c when the PTP were introduced I said the very same thing. At least Cryme Tyme were entertaining and had charmisa, I don't understand why Vince just couldnt bring them back and use them in the same role they are using PTP.

    • H.M.

      Kidd/Gabriel need to develop a bit more of a connection with the fans. The Uso's are excellent candidates for the tag titles atm alongside Primo and Epico. All except PTP are excellent tag teams in ring wise but I have to admit the PTP do have a lot of charisma.

      • JamieSNZ

        Where do they keep it?

    • Matt

      I agree, The Usos are highly underutilized and have so much potential

    • Crystal

      Right there with you on that one. So do not like the prime time players.

  • Gurinder

    David otunga in the main event
    Really really

    • Leonard

      He in a movie coming out of course he is in the main event, that why Eve on tv also

    • Razmos01

      Miz smark

  • Tim

    Is this the era of bad gms or what and what happen to Kane being punished I’d like to she booker t try it

    • XKonn247

      Yea. I can see how Booker T, a former six time world champion, would struggle against Kane. Kayfabe or not this comment is so daft.

      • Sjenttivensventa

        Well seeing how Kane dominated the undertaker for months. Where the undertaker didn’t really get a upper hand in the feud. I think it could happen. Unless your saying booker t is better than taker. Then in fact your daft.

        • XKonn247

          Kane also got his ass beaten by Mysterio weekly s few years back. You telling me Reybis better than Booker. Because if you are you’re not daft. You’re an idiot. Don’t forget, real world, Booker T punked out Batista.

  • Noah

    Wait so Barrett is returning on smackdown or was it a dark match?

  • Craigscool88

    Y did wade Barrett return on smack down and not raw?? Is he a bad guy still or good guy??

    • xChristenLynnx

      Wade returned to SD because he is a SD Superstar and he is most likely heel

    • SRP

      He fought a face on his return so it’s safe to say he’s a heel.

    • christopher525

      I'm just glad he's back, he's one hell of a talent, he's going to have his now or never time.

  • jake

    Wade is a heel I was there

  • Bishop

    Such a shame the WHC match at NoC isn’t a submission match. Sheamus has the cloverleaf, which I’m sure they will come up with a catchy Irish name for. Pair that with the arm bar of ADR, which Orton tapped out to…you have yourself a good story to tell in the ring.

    • XKonn247

      The clover. The Irish symbol of luck. Hmm. What could they call the cloverleaf to make it more Irish? Damn it! No wonder creative didn’t want me!

    • Mohammad

      Don’t worry If sheamus locks on the clover leaf delrio will have to tapp for sure

  • Sam

    Brogue kick bannedthat means only celtic cross and his new submission hold

  • Gurinder

    Did wade barrett got nice pop or he got boooed

  • Will

    How where you there

  • Mwl

    The Brogue Kick banned? What is wrestling coming to. Oh, I know …….. Boring!!!!

  • Wrestling has become so predictible i believe its on its last leg if us as fans dont let our voice be heard them its over. We make the wwe we make the super stars

    • Wrestling has been on its “last leg” for years now. Its got a pretty strong leg, apparently…

    • XKonn247

      Let me guess. “Bring back the attitude era”. “PG sucks”. Blah blah blah. Same shit different post. The fact is, RAW is pretty consistent in the ratings pulling in 3.2+ every week (minus one recently that was 2.9), the USA network just gave RAW clearance to go 3 hours, the WWE have their own network in the pipeline with over 30,000 hours of library footage and plans for tonnes of original programming. Last year Vince McMahon made, what was it, $23m? They produce four shows on a weekly basis that air, internationally, on TV. (Nkt internationally for me, I’m English). I’m struggling with the concept of “last leg” here? Even TNA is seeing its ratings increase slowly at the moment. If that trend continues, who knows we may have another pro wrestling boom. If this is “last leg” I’d sure as hell trade it for my two fully working ones!

  • Richy

    Ortons punt kick gone, shaemus brogue kick gone, next up the Broski boot will be gone. why is wwe taking away moves that get the crowd into the show?

    • n1ck

      gotta love marks

    • XKonn247


  • Guzzie1984

    The texas cloverleaf has been on the go for as long as i remember, Dean Malenko used in mid 90’s in WCW, was probably used before that, so it kinda makes sense that sheamus would pick it up to his arsenal,

    Just saying not like it’s a new move named to suit Sheamus, it is how it has always been known,

  • Keir

    The Irish symbol is a shamrock not a clover you muppet! I’d call it the shamrock lock!

    • Richie

      This! ^^^

  • JC

    Keir is right. The clover has four leaves and is more international than it is Irish. The shamrock has 3 leaves. Why does it need a name though. Del rios arm breaker doesn’t, neither does the rocks sharpshooter. It’s too classic to rename I think. At least for now.

  • Ladycares

    The brough kick gone? Can’t take it huh? Ban DelRio’s arm bar

  • Mohammad

    Really wade Barrett returning and brogue kick bieing banned that’s insane booker has gone nuts

  • Rob G

    This could the worst case scenario:
    AJ is removed from her GM position; Booker T turning to the “dark side”
    In other words; WWE is spiraling downwards with these elogical changes

    The only real question now is:
    “What else is going to happen?”

  • Kevin

    So let me get this straight: WWE creative wants us to get into their stories, then punishes Sheamus by banning his Brogue Kick when it was CLEARLY Rodriguez who put himself in harm's way? That would be like arresting and convicting the driver of a vehicle for hitting the drunk who staggered out into the street right in front of the car. Rodriguez "chose" to push Del Rio out of the way and take the kick for him; why is Sheamus being punished?

    • XKonn247

      No doubt it’ll be brought up Sheamus has hit the kick on referees and used it outside of competition a lot recently?

  • Tyler

    Barrett returns

  • Broncopaul

    Why not push the usos they are the best tag team on the roster great chemistry and very athletic rikishi sons deserve better than this

  • john

    brogue kick hooligans

  • earl snyder

    Velvet Sky has left TNA. She is what the Divas need to spice things up in their division.A Divas Title match between Velvet and Layla would be awesome.I hope the powers that be pick her up.
