SuperSized SmackDown – Best and worst- 2-year streak ends, Tributes to 3 WWE Hall of Famers, Big mistake with Seth Rollins

SuperSized SmackDown was a great show and it had to be because it was going up against really stiff competition. We mean “stiff” in the literal sense of the word if you consider the Bryan Danielson vs. Minoru Suzuki match.

Not everything about SuperSized SmackDown was great though and we shall touch upon the negatives in this ‘Best and worst’ article. As always, you are welcome to share your thoughts, views, and comments in the space below. Did you think that WWE did a better job than AEW this week?

#3 Best/Worst: Sasha Banks & Becky Lynch tore it up on SuperSized SmackDown but…

Bianca Belair was on commentary for the Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch match which was everything that it needed to be. The only reason why this falls in the Best/Worst category is that the sight of Becky Lynch getting pinned just takes away a lot of the mystique associated with the current SmackDown Women’s Champion. She has been portrayed as a bulletproof performer at the same level as Roman Reigns until now.

But let that not distract us from the fact that Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch left it all in the ring at SuperSized SmackDown. Just remember that Sasha Banks is an actress associated with the Star Wars franchise and Becky Lynch is a new mom. They could have put on an average performance at SuperSized SmackDown and the crowd would still not have minded.

But these women made the SuperSized SmackDown main event feel like an occasion, not just another throwaway match. One would have to assume that AEW Rampage or not, they would have put on the same level of performance. However, We have to wonder if, distraction or not, Becky Lynch losing was a wise decision.

#2 Best: Did you catch the Dudley Boyz tribute on SuperSized SmackDown from The Street Profits?

The SuperSized SmackDown match between The Street Profits and The Usos was just as good as one would expect it to be. But what made the occasion even more special was the little nod to The Dudley Boyz from The Street Profits.

There’s no better way to ‘get the tables’, than what we saw on SuperSized SmackDown. With the special Eddie Guerrero tribute from Sasha Banks, it was a night filled with subtle messages.

#2 Worst: So, Seth Rollins and Edge were in the same building but came out separately?

The promo from Edge at the top of SuperSized SmackDown was great. It was personal, it was real, and it was the perfect setup for the upcoming Hell in a Cell match at WWE Crown Jewel. One has to wonder why a person that feels so strongly about Seth Rollins did not come out to interrupt his promo which happened right in the middle of the ring. Did he go home?

#1 Best: Brock Lesnar says one line which hits home

The final segment on SuperSized SmackDown was the contract signing between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns. It was absolutely hilarious to see Adam Pearce hurrying up the ring crew to set up the stage in the absence of any commercials.

Brock Lesnar said just one line on SuperSized SmackDown during the contract signing segment but it laid the foundation fantastically for the upcoming match at Crown Jewel. Is Paul Heyman firmly on Roman Reigns’ side or is he allied with Brockkkkkkkkkkkkkk Lesnar? Is Paul Heyman the wise man? Or is he still Brock Lesnar’s advocate?

#1 Worst: The lowest point of SuperSized SmackDown and maybe all of sports entertainment

Of course, the point of a heel is to get heat. But there’s just something downright embarrassing about King Corbin and Madcap Moss.

Then, Shinsuke Nakamura would come out to save the SuperSized SmackDown audience from these ghastly jokes, but nothing ever happened. This was a pointless and aimless segment that really went nowhere at all.
