WWE Friday Night SmackDown Hit

Daniel Bryan Promotion: Brian sold the Royal Rumble event better in the opening segment than Monday’s Low, except for Edge’s third hour promotion. Brian’s promotional rumble and his enthusiastic approach to hype his goals were contagious. The introduction of AJ Styles and Omos was a fun surprise that provided a great hook in the form of Styles vs. Brian.

Bailey vs Bianca Belair: The reversion to the original NXT Obstacle Course Challenge last week didn’t help me at all. Moreover, I was not a fan of the verbal exchange between Bailey and Berea. But the moment the bell rang, they played a really good match, and the feud became hot. This is Berea’s best ring outing on the main roster and will give her momentum to the Royal Rumble Match.

Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens: Excellent split-screen language exchange that introduces the differences between characters and their problems. Owens is finally starting to offer a powerful baby face promotion that we knew he had in him.

Daniel Bryan vs AJ Style: Normal good inling work from both men. There was no reason to achieve a clean finish, so external interference was a matter of course.

AJ Styles, Sesaro, Sami Zain vs. Daniel Bryan, Big E, Shinsuke Nakamura: It was fun while it lasted and then …

WWE Friday Night SmackDown Miss

Miz, John Morrison, AJ Styles, Cesaro, Sami Zayn vs. Sheamus, Otis, Daniel Bryan, Big E, Shinsuke Nakamura: … Overkill. WWE used the “brand invitation” excuse for Styles, which is fine. But if Sheamus and Braun Strowman didn’t choose to run out at the end, they wouldn’t show up clearly, so we would turn our heads off, believing that someone had burned the invitation. I think that there. I’m happy that Straumann is healthy, but I wish he had returned on Monday so he wouldn’t have to spend the next few days hoping he couldn’t win the rumble match. I will.

King Corbin vs Dominik Mysterio: It looked like offnight to young Dominique. He seemed to stutter the steps into the rope and wasn’t as clear as in past games. It’s unavoidable that he hasn’t been booked to tackle many games lately. Dom is up and is bringing youth to WWE’s main list, so I hope he’s booked to work more often despite this turbulent outing. Oh, and this is my weekly plea for WWE’s creativity to unplug Corbyn’s painfully tired King Gimmick. Corbyn is a good heel, and cliché gimmicks are far more harmful than good.
