Post-Brand Extension, Smackdown has proven (so far) to be a more engaging wrestling show than that of its brother, Raw. This week I give my take on both shows as we are only ONE week away from SummerSlam in Brooklyn.
Talking about Raw & Smackdown Live as we inch closer to SummerSlam in Brooklyn. Is Dolph Ziggler really deserving of a title shot? Can Finn Balor ever become the face of the company? I answer all of this and a TON more in my 90 minute review!
This week I am joined by my co-host Benny Mack as we discuss Smackdown Live, The Draft and give our Official BattleGround Predictions! Don’t forget, I will be doing a LIVE post-game show immediately following the PPV this Sunday on BlogTalkRadio. Search for “Matts Madness”
Monday’s Raw felt like someone had pressed the FF button on the remote. While we all saw the breakups between Charlotte & her dad coming at some point, as well as AJ and “The Club” going their separate ways, there was little buildup or backstory to support the payoff.
I also talk about why Seth Rollins as a heel is a mistake, Smackdown going Live and TONS more.
Tonights “Go Home” version of Raw needs to be hot and leaving us wanting to see Extreme Rules more than when we started the show. This is the beginning of “SummerSlam” season, and with major returns on the horizon, this could be a Summer to remember.
