WWE Smackdown (Airing on SyFy):

* Triple H, Vickie Guerrero & Brad Maddox are in the ring, and several Superstars stand on the stage. The Shield stand guard around the ring. Triple H announces that he is holding a "town hall" meeting, in order to allow grievances to be aired. Triple H says he didn't want to fire Cody Rhodes, but he gave Cody a chance to keep his job. He then opens up the floor for Superstars to speak out. Damien Sandow says he supports the decision to fire Cody. Kofi Kingston & Rob Van Dam spoke out in support of Cody, while Heath Slater complains about Big Show. Ryback speaks out about how he doesn't like being called a bully. Triple H responds by putting Ryback in a rematch with Dolph Ziggler tonight. As a "thank you" for speaking out, Triple H puts Kofi in a non-title match against Curtis Axel, and puts RVD in a match with Randy Orton.

    Looks like a big start to Smackdown this week. From the sounds of things, it sounds at least as big as an average Raw, which is something Smackdown’s been needing to do for some time.

    • CJ Blaze

      I think it’s nice that SmackDown is actually involved with the biggest storyline right now.

      • BrooksOglesby

        Everything feels more connected, like a complete story instead of 11 or so individual segments per show. It’s been so long since there was this amount of storylines being interwoven that it feels completely fresh.

  • jdl

    Every show ending with Bryan getting the piss beat out of him is starting to get old. I understand he’s supposed to be the ultimate underdog, but they’re pushing it a little too far. Orton has stood over or RKO’d Bryan at the end of every single Raw and Smackdown since Summerslam. It’s starting to get hard to watch since it ends the same way every damn time.

    • Larry Hicks

      yeah i was all for it at first but damn 6 eps and all of them randy stands over daniel.I think big show is going to help daniel win the title and then they are going to try to strip it from him the next night on raw. Its Mick foley vs the corporation all over again.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I understand what they are trying to do with Bryan but 6 out of 6 shows is a bit much. At very least I hope he manages to get one up on the Corporation Next Week. I am still vested in this angle even with the slow build. They need to let Daniel unleash The American Dragon soon and give the Corporation hell. My biggest worry is that by the time they unleash Bryan, creative will kill his momentum by having Sheamus and/or Cena single handedly manhandle destroy the Corporation in 1-2 weeks. I know its a bit silly. I know the pay off for this angle is going to be awesome. I just hope creative lives up to their end of the bargain

    • BrooksOglesby

      I can’t help but feel like this is how they want the IWC to react. They wanted us to get our hopes up about Bryan getting even quickly (as 50/50 booking is what we’re used to). That’s not happening, and we’re all getting frustrated, just as the more casual fans are. I’m not saying it’s necessarily good or bad booking, but I think it’s an intentional choice to have every single show ending precisely the same way.

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        I am still vested in this angle. I just hope they keep faith with Bryan even when Sheamus and Cena returns. They need to find 2 important non title feuds for them for Wrestlemania season because if all things fall into place both Cody Rhodes and Daniel Bryan can have their Wrestlemania moment for the titles, once it is properly booked right.

        • BrooksOglesby

          Yeah, I’m thinking that the returns of Sheamus and Cena are really when WWE will show how much faith they have in Bryan. They were pushing him hard prior to their injuries, but now that they really had no choice but to push him, I’m unsure as to where they’ll be placing him in the long-run. This angle is the biggest push a face has received in a long, long time, though, so we’ll have to see. Hopefully he stays as one of the top guys. We definitely need an actual underdog in the main event scene.

    • iwc

      i hate this storyline as well even though seeing a internet guy get the spotlight is everything i ever asked 4 from vince and even though orton is heel again which i also wanted. i just hate the fact that smackdown didnt go the way i envisioned it in my head, bryan is getting buried. he should of beat sheild, hhh, and orton in a handicap match by himself with no help for the title. i blame cena and sheamus for this terrible storyline even though they are at home with injuries and in no way involved with this angle, im still gonna blame dem for it.

      • Matt

        You’d have booked Bryan over FIVE guys in a handicap match with no help? Jesus, never try to get a job as a creative writer in a wrestling company. Ideas like that will Russo a company in about 7 seconds.

        • iwc

          d-bry is clearly the greatest thing to ever happen to the wwe. he should of beat cena clean at summerslam then kicked out of hhh’s pedigree then somhow beat orton while avoiding the screw job by hhh. and yes, I would of booked bryan over all five of them in a handicap match. russo was a great writer when he was with the wwe in the attitude era so russoing a company is exactly what the wwe needs right now.

          • Matt

            You’re an idiot

          • Chris

            That doesn’t begin to sum it up…

          • iwc

            you need to sum up that mouth of yours you fat fuuuuuuuck

          • iwc

            if im an idiot then youre a dummy, dummy! guys like daniel bryan should be beating everyone. daniel bryan beating hhh, orton & big show in a 3 on 1 hell in a cell match would be ideal.

          • Tim

            This is great Guess people don’t understand sarcasm

  • Stones

    Orton and Hunter are doing great at making me hate them, I wanna see them get their asses kicked at NOC.
    Haven’t felt like that about a heel in a long time

  • Tim

    Uhh someone wake me when the next show doesn’t end like the past hundred

  • Robert Macon

    triple and orton need there ass kick good and so they can cry about it hope some one does soon

    • Matt

  • Ridiculous

    Why is Rollins always getting pinned

  • wtcchhh

    Kofi pinned Axel? Surely they can give Axel a 2nd match on the night to defend the title against Kofi, c’mon its Night of Champions and makes a farce of itself if the belt isn’t defended.

  • Philip Dickens

    i see either linda mcmahon returning to stand up for the babyfaces or the board of directors getting involved

  • Vaneyscopaz

    See this is THE MAIN REASON I HATE ORTON AS CHAMP! SAME OLE BORING CRAP EVERY NIGHT!!!! Cm Punk needs to huryy up and get rid of heyman so he can take back this title

  • Veer

    When is undertaker coming back?
