My Thoughts of tonight's SmackDown:

The match between Dolph and Roode was a good start to kick it off. A very good SmackDown this week compared to recent weeks. The 3 x match between Corbin and Sin Cara to me doesn't seem to appealing. Mainly because Sin Cara hasn't been on TV until this fued, so not much of any build up. Mainly just being thrown together. The fashion files is a funny segment in which I enjoy and wish were longer. I do enjoy the build up between The Usos, and Gable and Benjamin. I think this match is gonna be a good one. Both teams are very fun to watch. The Rusev and New Day skits are getting boring. Just because there's no titles between them right now, so not much will come of it I think. The main event between Owens and Nakamura was a great finish, a ton of action and Zayn and Owens are great as heels together. Overall this week was very enjoyable, hopefully the fans tuned in to watch this week.
