      is Pathetic!

      Otunga had to have had a weapon I don't see him taking out Clays knee so easily. either way if Otunga is going to feud with Clay..he's in trouble.

      • Blake

        That’s because Otunga is going to have a match with Clay during the preshow

  • H.M.

    Also, lol @ Triple coming off air to pedigree midcarders. What's up with that?

    And I'm getting tired of seeing Ryback squashing random jobbers now. It's been 2 months and if anything WWE is really killing his momentum, rather than capitalizing on it at this moment.

    • Samuel andersen

      Hell yeah man at least have him move to yoshi tatsu, and Alex Riley or some other dark workers

      • XKonn247

        What do you mean by “dark worker”?

        • tluss3

          "Dark workers" are dark match workers. Wrestlers that are not seen on TV very often and when they are they are usually used in "squash" (quick non-important) matches. IT has nothing to do with skin tone or background.

          • Matt Scott

            I wasn't implying that at all! I thought he meant local talent, as I've always seen it worded. Why would you assume someone is being racist!?

    • Anand

      I agree 100%. They must put Ryback in a meaningful feud. They have 4 big men who are squashing mid-carders every week. Ryback, Cesario, Sandow and Brodus. Why not put them in meaningful feuds – Cesario trying to preach Ryback out of his ignorance. Cesario trying to teach the dancing Brodus a lesson or something like that, That will be more interesting than some jobber being squashed every week….

    • Anand

      i do agree that they are building ryback as a unstoppable force but this squash of beating two skinny jobbers is becoming kind of boring week after week. Atleast feek ryback lower mid-card level guys from the WWE itself instead of those no-name guys who nobody knows or has seen on tv.

      Unless they give some good feuds to guys like ryback, cesario and sandow they will start becoming stale like brodus and may even get pushed to obscurity.

    • Superfly

      Trips is originally from NH. They had a big article on the front page of the local paper about him coming home.

    • Adam

      Yeah! Ryback should face real WWE superstars!!!:@

  • sam

    Hoping from No way out Ryback starts getting a push towards actual roster superstars… as entertaining as it is to see these squash matches I feel it is time we see Ryback start building towards some championship gold… sooner rather than later!

    …. prediction for No way out WWE title match… AJ will get back with Bryan… all the focus is around her with Kane and Punk…. I just have this weird feeling.

  • Bishop

    Best way to get Ryback over is for him to feud with Big Show, if he beats Cena at NWO.

    Cena needs some time off and this would be a good way to get in good graces with the younger fan base. Wasn’t there rumors in the past that VKM wanted to push Ryback/Sheffield to a Cena-type level?

    and a prediction for NWO … AJ will help Daniel Bryan win…. it just seems thats she in love with punk and Kane… so due to this she ll betray them both and go with Bryan…. orrrr it will lead to a Punk vs Kane rivalry with AJ in the middle maybe? one of the two will happen…

  • Anand

    3 Squashes this week as well. Better than last week I suppose when we had 5 squashes… The names are the same Brodus, Ryback and Sandow. Thankfully Sin-Cara and Antonio were missing this week otherwise we wouldve been force fed 5 squashes in place of 3…

  • dusty588

    Hopefully the Sandow/Kidd match was more than a couple minutes. I think they could have some great matches together.

  • Brandon

    Wow, SmackDown! this week seems….mediocre….

  • Kyle

    When was the last time Cena was on Smackdown?

    • XKonn247

      Why would he be? He’s a RAW guy. It’s not Smackdown Supershow.

  • JasonGaza

    Cena and punk kickin it on smackdown? otunga takes out brodus? Triple h pedigree swagger? Beth botched? Johnny knocked out? Damn smackdown is gold this week huh

  • The problem with Ryback is that I feel WWE wanted him as a monster heel but the fans have set him in the face category. If he was a heel he could easily work through the face midcard wrestlers such as Riley and Yoshi, but how many Heel Midcarders does WWE actually have?

    Not many.

  • steve2

    Triple H was at the show because he’s from NH. They’ve been plugging him being at the show all month.

  • Tyler

    Wheres Damian sandow? Hes the reason I watch smack down.

  • karen occardi

    i hate this story line aj better stay away from kane enough is enough even he (kane) is fed up with it
