Welcome to WNW's live coverage of SmackDown!

Rest in peace, Ultimate Warrior.

John Cena's music hits and he runs to the ring to kick things off this week. He grabs a mic. He says it sounds like you're tired. It's been a busy week starting with WrestleMania 30. It started with Hogan, Stone Cold, and The Rock having an iconic moment. Kofi was a wildcat, and Cesaro won the battle royal. Bray Wyatt... You can't see me. And sadly, The Undertaker was defeated.

The Game got played, and we have a new WWE World Heavyweight Champ! That was just WrestleMania. We believed in The Shield, got some bad news, found out Lesnar is the one, and Cesaro is a Paul Heyman guy. And his theme song got rewritten. Cena was taught to bo-lieve in himself. He mentions Adam Rose and Alexander Rusev. And Paige.... she turned the page in the divas division. I am the measuring stick. I am John Cena. Any If anyone wants their feet planted on the top of the mountain, they are going to have to go through me.

The Wyatt Family appear on the tron. Harper talks first, and Bray follows. When he looks inside himself, he sees the good, the bad, and the miracles. He is free. It must have been frightening, you were right there. Wyatt says he has to go to new extremes to see the monster. He's got the whole world in his... hands.

Hulk Hogan makes his way to the ring with a big pop. Well let me tell you something, brother! As the host of WrestleMania, he was there first-hand. When Daniel Bryan won the world title, he turned it into YES-tleMania. As he held those titles up, he got chills going through his body. Daniel Bryan comes out with the WWE and World Heavyweight titles as a big YES chants breaks out. Well let me tell you something, Hulkster! This has, by far, been the greatest week of Bryan's life.

  • Matt

    YO YO YO, and just in case you didn’t hear, YO

    • CJ Blaze


      • Matt

        Thanks for covering today, CJ Blaze!

        • CJ Blaze

          Woo Woo Woo, You Know It Broski!

  • CJ Blaze

    I’m running the live coverage tonight, so I will be in and out. Looks to be a good show with the advertised matches.

  • HI-HI!

  • Matt

    So unfortunate all this was taped before Warrior’s passing. I’d like a cool tribute before Raw, too

    • I’m hoping to see some wrestlers run to the ring at full speed Warrior style

      • Matt

        Too bad CM Punk isn’t still with the company as you know he’d be out in Warrior makeup

  • David Jr.

    Hello all.

    • Matt

      Sup DJ

      • David Jr.

        So non wrestling related question, Boston or Pittsburgh?

        • Matt

          Oh you don’t know that much about me, lol. I’m HARDCORE Red Wings, Tigers and Wolverines fan. Close seconds are Red Sox and Bruins. I am actually wearing a Red Sox T shirt and Bruins hat right now

          • David Jr.

            So you want Red Wings vs. Bruins in the first round?

          • Matt


          • David Jr.

            Well if we play Pittsburgh in the first round we can get the Bruins in the 2nd.

          • Matt

            deal. I’d love to make Sidney cry again (even though he’s one of the best in the world)

          • David Jr.

            I think the Wings would have an easier time beating the Penguins without Z than the Bruins since Malkin is out for the Pens, too.

    • CJ Blaze

      Hey David!

      • David Jr.

        I have to be here, as Kendra says I’m the first person to ever come to Smackdown’s Open Thread.

        • You were, and the person to push to make this into more than just three people kind of talking. Though I still miss that I can’t yell at least once a Friday night.

          • David Jr.

            Only 5 more months. If it starts when it usually starts.

          • But I miss yelling, and miss seeing it more!

          • David Jr.

            Have you seen every episode now?

        • CJ Blaze


  • Colleen

    Hello everyone

    • Matt

      Hi honey!

    • CJ Blaze

      Hey Colleen!

      • Colleen

        How are you?

        • CJ Blaze

          Good, I’m pumped for some wrestling!

          • Colleen

            Always a good thing! 🙂

  • I love it that I was right on who ended up being the New Heyman Guy.

    • CJ Blaze

      Totally didn’t see that coming! But I love it

      • I was laughed at for suggesting it because it didn’t make sense because Cesaro was “Face”.

        • Matt

          well what you don’t know, is I’m the Next Paul Heyman Guy. Cesaro is just a facade

  • It was great to see paige finally debut. even huger that she won the title.

  • It will be interesting to see what Cesaro’s new theme will be. I heard he didn’t have one for smackdown.

    • Matt

      Cult of Personality by Living Colour

    • Crud, he needs something great!

  • Matt

    Here come the men in black!

  • Alex Gallardo

    I can already tell that Raw will be emotional this Monday.

    • CJ Blaze


  • Just in time to hear a Cena promo. LOL!!

  • I’m from Winnepeg You Idiot! Sign in the crowd. LOL

  • Matt

    I love Michael Cole

    • After how he handled Jerry Lawler’s heart attack, I do too.

      • Agreed. He was fantastic that night. Classy.

      • Matt

        He’s the man, that’s for sure!

    • David Jr.

      He’s improve so much since he’s started and he’s replaced one of the most beloved announcers of all time and I think that’s why he’s hated on.

  • I was impressed with the crowd, then remembered it was two nights after WM, so of course they were wild.

  • He wants everyone’s pop. LOL!

  • I’m still not giving up hope of being part of the Yes! Movement on Tuesday.

  • I can’t hate on Cena. He’s enjoying himself and you have to like that.

    • And doing a solid job of talking up the week – to that point.

  • Pun Master Cena.

  • about time Cena switches from the underdog character to the Guy everyone has to beat to be the best.

    • He is Flair from back in the day. To be the man, you need to beat the man.

      • Yeah. and one day he will replace Flair as the all-time World Champion leader.

  • I never realized how close together his eyes were until now. WOW.

  • Luke Harper has a brilliant delivery.

  • David Jr.

    So John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt feud looks like its continuing, so what type of match would you like them to have at Extreme Rules?

  • Matt

    Bray Wyatt is absolute GOLD

  • Cesaro is sparkly!

  • packerpf

    Cesaro needs to take that title off Dean Ambrose

    • That title doesn’t matter. I don’t care if Ambrose keeps the prop for the rest of his career.

    • CJ Blaze

      Love that idea.

  • CJ Blaze

    Cesaro vs. Show should be interesting

    • Matt

      big big swing

  • My Idea is to have Bryan beat Brock Lesnar at Summerslam but lose to Cesaro when Cesaro Cashes in the Money In the bank contract sparking a feud between Cesaro and Bryan.

  • Dean Ambrose 327 days as champion. 17 days from breaking the WWE only Record for US Title reign.

    • David Jr.

      He’ll break it and also break Lex Luger’s 523 days reign because WWE forgot about the title and think Dean Ambrose wears it to hold up his pants.

  • packerpf

    Cesaro swing on big show here we go!

  • packerpf

    Cesaro going to get a new vid and song now?

    • That’s why he has nothing now.

      • packerpf

        haha he should have got his own song

  • Matt

    First annual…why not inaugural

  • Cesaro is face and Heyman is heel. I like it!

  • That was cool to see Heyman give him advise while on commentary.

  • Michael Cole just mentioned the Grand Wizard on the app. Mad props!

  • CJ Blaze

    I’m hoping for a swing or Neutralizer. Both would be impressive

  • I’ve been watching 96-98 WCW PPVs, and it’s shocking how much different Big Show is. It’s like he’s comfortable in his skin compared to then. Then again, he put on 100lbs in less than a year, and that couldn’t be helpful for him to feel like himself in the ring.

    • The big show is remarkable athletic for his size.

      • He is, and watching him when he was so young, and grow into this body, is very interesting.

    • David Jr.

      I’m still shock how he survived falling off the roof.
      “it’s real to me”

  • Matt

    A movie based on Jinn. Wow. Never thought i’d see that

    • David Jr.

      And it was made in Michigan.

  • Matt

    My god, Smackdown is empty tonight

  • “I explained to him that my name was Paul Heyman and he signed immediately”. LOL!!!

  • Heyman has great facial expressions.

    • Colleen

      He does indeed.

      • Matt

        they’re going to be milking his “holding his mouth” facial expression for a long time

  • Swagger stops the swing and gets the Big Show DQ’d.

  • What a uppercut!

  • The neutralizer!!!

  • Thwagger is finally being treated as insignificant. YES!

  • Matt


    • I was going to say shit! But I agree with you. That was sick!

      • Matt

        You can’t say shit on the site, Ken.

      • Children! LOL!

      • David Jr.

        I agree with TMF, use Crayola.

  • Glad to see Cesaro finally is getting a big Push.

    • CJ Blaze

      I agree

  • RybAxel on the app. Oh goody!

  • Axel: “I’m the one who put Paul Heyman back on the map.” ROFL!!!!

    • Matt

      Axel: “I’m the reason Hulk Hogan won the title in the 80s”

    • He deserves beat with a Kendo Stick for that.

  • Oooooh!! They’re quiet and angry!!

  • Matt

    I almost bought a BoLiever t shirt today, but bought a million blu rays and two video games instead

    • David Jr.

      I almost bought a Bo knows shirt, than I realize it was for Jackson and not Dallas.

    • Colleen

      Yeah, you bought enough lol.

      • Matt

        I am a BoLiever though

  • YES! El Dorito! ARN!

  • Los Matadores need to do some crunches. Yikes!

  • Monday is Raw is Warrior. and that’s a good thing.

    • Matt

      Maybe. I hope they don’t milk it too far. They’re only doing it to profit, sadly.

      • Not sure that’s fair. They’re doing it because it’s the right thing to do. How would they profit from a UW tribute show?

        • Matt

          By advertising it in a banner across Smackdown, lol. Hit me up on Facebook so I can explain to you in ways that doesn’t upset some of our other readers.

          • Diplomatic and professional. Thank you.

          • Matt

            Absolutely. 🙂

        • To me it’s no different then the tribute shows for Eddie and Owen. It’s the right thing to do.

      • David Jr.

        WWE should take all profits from that show and give to his wife’s charity of choice.

        • Matt

          or give it to the girls for college.

          • David Jr.

            I was going to say that, too.

          • I agree with both of you, it’s the way to do it.

          • David Jr.

            I don’t think I could rewatch the Warriors speech at the Hall of Fame ceremony just because of the line where he says the greatest thing I ever did was be your father.

  • Proof you are irrelevant as a tag team? You lose to rybaxel

  • CJ Blaze

    I think this will be the first time I cover an RVD match.

  • You know what the WWE Tag Team division needs? The Ascension.

  • Titus killing it on the app. Why don’t they let him do promos on the show?

  • Damien Sandow = whatever Plucky Duck flushed in his toliet.

  • Matt

    I want these two to have a good feud.

  • David Jr.

    2 of the 3 guys to cash in their MITB’s not after another match, and both faced John Cena, ironically the other guy is John Cena.

    • David Jr.

      Well not after getting beat up either, because CM Punk’s first cash in wasn’t after a match but Batista did beat up Edge before hand.

  • Wrong Time to Come Back!

  • I’m not a fan of RVD’s Frog splash.

    • Matt

      he does it the best!

      • Eddie’s was better.

        • Eddie’s didn’t look like it hurt him more then the guy he landed on.

          • Agreed. And it might have been his build, but he looked better flying.

          • Matt

            RVD > Eddie.

          • Eddie>RVD you ECW Mark.

          • Matt

            RVD is the Whole Fn Show…the T shirt says so.

          • He had his show stopped by HBK.

          • Okay boys, take this fight outside before it gets ugly in here.

          • Probably a large part of it was he was trained to do everything perfectly. RVD coming up in ECW didn’t have to have that polish since it fit in with the style of ECW.

      • Eddie did.

  • Damien San-job.

  • Big E on the app….being amazing!!!

  • Alexander is round. Very round. LOL!!

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    I love the old spice commercial where the woman is riding behind the car in a clothes basket

  • Why doesn’t WWE just let Big E be Big E on the show? This promo is annoying me because he’s so funny!

  • This is the segment I am looking the most forward too.

  • Matt

    Totally singing Hulk’s song out loud!

    • I still have my old “Wrestling Album”…on cassette and LP. ROFL!

      • Matt

        oh man!!!! What else is on there?

        • You *NEED* that album. Junkyard Dog is amazing on it! Cyndi Lauper is there as Mona Flambe. It’s the greatest album ever!

          • Matt


        • Let’s also not forget it’s best track: Jimmy Hart – “Eat Your Heart Out, Rick Springfield.”

    • Colleen

      It’s hard to not get stuck in your head.

  • Brother: 1

  • Brother: 2

  • Brother: 3

  • YestleMania!

  • Brother: 4

  • can’t get much better then Hogan and Bryan in the ring at the same time.

  • I’d say this is pretty much anointing Bryan as The guy.

  • He’s in the ring with Hogan…and he’s loving it!

    • Matt

      he’s not the only one loving it!

    • I think hogan’s loving it too.

  • Matt

    Hogan just legitimized Bryan

  • So cool that he’s in the ring with Hogan tonight, and getting married today.

  • Colleen

    I am loving this segment so far.

  • It’s always fun to see Wrestlers let out their inner marks. Bryan is Marking right now.

  • Bryan with 24″ pythons! LOL

  • He’s so completely genuine.

    • David Jr.

      Which is why I think he’s so loved by the fans.

  • Matt

    I don’t know anyone who isn’t a Hulkamaniac

  • This is so cool!!

  • This is awesome to see Hogan and Bryan doing this together.

  • I’m marking like a little girl!

  • Bry is horrible at the ear thing, but he’s so cute! He’s so real it’s endearing!

  • CJ Blaze

    That’s awesome. I would’ve wet my pants if I could do that with Hulk LOL

    • Alex Gallardo

      A bit too much information there…

      • Matt

        I would crap my pants if I got to pose with Hogan in the ring.

        • Alex Gallardo


      • CJ Blaze

        Haha 🙂

  • Colleen

    This is too awesome! So entertaining.

  • I can’t imagine how it must feel for Bryan to see Hogan doing Bryan’s chant.

  • Matt

    Best Smackdown Segment in so long

  • If there was any doubt WWE was going to give bryan a Chance as the face I think that answered them.

    • Matt


  • This is why SD is so worth watching! They do things like Bry in the ring HH, and if it was on Raw, someone would have attacked.

  • The Scrolling message spoken by Michael Cole.

  • Kofi I Be Jobbin’ Kingston.

  • David Jr.

    While it might be impressive, it’s also a good way to break your leg.

    • David Jr.

      I have no idea why it did that.

  • BNB is one of my favorites on the roster! Glad to see him back

  • Barrett has brought back his jacket and is wrestling. Great!

  • Alex Gallardo

    I can’t wait to see Kofi lose.

    • You no likey Kofi?

      • Alex Gallardo

        But BNB 4 life man.

        • amen. Kofi rules, BNB rules all!

          • Alex Gallardo

            This is off topic
            But when’s that next podcast coming?

          • I haven’t talked to Gesus about it. I guess it would be good to, lol

          • Alex Gallardo

            Get to it.
            I’m always waiting for the next one.

  • This is great to see him bring the gimmick into the ring.

  • Trouble in bull hammer?

  • the Elbow just a little faster then the kick.

  • I absolutely love this Thank You Package.

  • This Thank You package…..ugh these allergies

    • Alex Gallardo

      You’re an emotional wrecking ball.

    • CJ Blaze

      Allergies suck! I’ve been dealing with them for the last week

      • every time those great HOF speeches and then that thing that happened late Tuesday. Allergies getting me, man.

        • CJ Blaze

          And that streak that ended

          • Alex Gallardo

            aka my heart.

      • Alex Gallardo


  • Alex Gallardo

    That package makes me want another empty arena match
    They don’t even have to do it before a Raw taping
    They can just stop by at the Impact Zone.

  • Fan-done-go on the app.

  • Fandango is not coming out with Summer rae. But coming out with Layla

  • Layla is hotter than Summer Rae so I’m okay with this

    • Infinitely!

    • Alex Gallardo

      But no one is hotter than
      You know who.

      • David Jr.

        Charles Robinson?

      • The Great Khali

        • Alex Gallardo

          Refresh for image

  • Alex Gallardo

    Summer Rae and Fandango’s tweets.

  • I was really struck by how not huge that light-up Fandango is.

  • I Love Santino. There is nothing wrong with a comedy character.

    • Agree. Santino is awesome!

    • Alex Gallardo

      Eric Young destroys him though

      • Who’s Eric Young?

        • Alex Gallardo

          That guy from the scary company down south that begins with a T.

        • some world champion of some indy company with a TV Deal.

        • David Jr.

          Former Los Angeles Dodger/ Colorado Rockie or maybe his son who currently plays for the New York Mets.

          • Alex Gallardo


          • More known as a Cincinnati Reds Outfielder.

          • David Jr.

            Eric Young never played for the Reds.

          • My Mistake. I mixed him up with Eric Davis.

        • Daniel Bryan knock off (beard and underdog) but damn fine wrestler

  • Paige > any other Diva right now

    • Colleen

      I so agree. She is what the Diva’s division needs.

  • Paige Video Package. 😀

  • I’d love to see her wear both titles on Raw monday

  • Alex Gallardo

    Paige slays every other current diva out there

  • CJ Blaze

  • Hey Look The tag Team Champions are Main-Eventing Smackdown.

  • Nothing bring a smile to my face more then seeing the smile on Bryan’s face during his entrance.

  • They cut the rest of HHH’s tweet because of Warrior dying.

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    Did Batista loose a tooth?

    • like a pound of spit

      • That always grosses me out!

          • Still terribly goss. I’d rather have Mr. Perfect’s gum fly at me than HBK’s spit!

        • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

          Me too. It’s nasty. Lol

  • CJ Blaze

    My title of the show when done will be Goat and the ______ vs. The Viper, Animal, and Monster or something like that. What should I call The Uso’s??

      • CJ Blaze

        Interesting. Bryan was supposed to be goat, so maybe along the lines of animals?

    • I’d rather it be something on Cesaro’s Feat Of Strength.

  • Beautiful Power slam by Orton.

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    I do like to see Randy’s power slam.

    • 2 things Randy does as good if not better than anyone in history is that slam and his drop kick.

      • love his dropkick

  • Glad Bryan isn’t wearing the goat print boots he wore at Mania

    • David Jr.

      He’s probably going to sign them and WWE will put them up for auction.

    • they were a tribute to Brusier Brody.

  • nasty fall, glad batista checked to see if he was okay

  • Sierra

    • Jesse Sherwood

  • David Jr.

    Indy wrestling fan dream, Brian Danielson, Tyler Black and John Moxley standing tall at the end of Raw and Smackdown.

    • CJ Blaze

      That’s awesome

  • Right around now in filming is where they learned Warrior died. I wonder if they knew already and were just holding off.

  • The monitor said Main Event on it. LOL

  • Wow, way to be chatty during the Backstage Pass, kiddos, lol

  • I’m surprised they didn’t edit that comment.

  • ooooo they still kept in that Obituary comment

    • they edited it out of smackdown but not backstage pass.

  • Renee is fantastic in this role. She’s my absolute favorite.

  • Renee is so short!

    • David Jr.

      According to WWE.com she’s 5’5
