    Welcome to this week’s WWE Smackdown “Open Thread” Watch Party! Smackdown will begin in 30 minutes, so stay tuned for live coverage.

    Dang, talk about “taking it easy” on Taker huh?

  • TomasHunter

    I thought that Smackdown was awesome this week. Ambrose vs Taker was easily the best match of the night; it was cool to see the Shield remain strong without an unrealistic win over the Undertaker. I only got to watch a few minutes of the Swagger/Del Rio match before I got called in to work at DISH. Thankfully, I remembered to set my DISH Hoper DVR to record the rest of the show. My wife was concerned that she would lose one of her recordings, but the Hopper records up to 6 shows during primetime, so her shows were safe.
