Greg DeMarco presents a very special review of WWE Smackdown, on DVR! What will Greg watch, what will he FAST FORWARD, and how long will it take to watch a 2-hour Smackdown?
Daddy’s back with a special look at WWE Smackdown! As many of you know, I live on the west coast, and my version of YouTube TV gives me Smackdown on the west coast feed, so I watch it later. I also record it, so this is the DVR version. Enjoy the bullet points! I am keeping time on a stopwatch (on my phone), so you will get timestamps throughout the show, and I will try to throw in a real time comparison as well so you can see how much time I am saving when I FAST FORWARD!
The experiment continues, I hope you like it!
- That WrestleMania sign is HUGE
Charlotte Flair Opens The Show
- Charlotte with that Roman Reigns/John Cena reaction: pop for the music, boos for the person
- FAST FORWARD the highlights!
- Charlotte looking like Dana Brooke tonight
- But she cuts a way better promo than Dana Brooke
- Goddamm Charlotte Flair is really Ric’s daughter. WOW.
- “Make sure this fan has a ticket!”
- “It’s one thing to take my Dad’s catchphrase, it’s another to STEAL ROMAN REIGNS’ ENTRANCE!”
- Sorry Becky, Charlotte wasn’t boring anyone to death.
- ADAM PEARCE SIGHTING!
- Oooooh Trips coming out on fire.
- I absolutely LOVE Charlotte immediately leaving when Triple H says to. She’s corporate.
- I can’t wait for Triple H & Stephanie to give Becky a deadline, and she misses it.
- Triple H showing you all how it’s done! Putting on a damn clinic.
- HHH’s nose is as big as Becky’s head!
- Becky, don’t jump on your injured knee.
- Brilliant performance by everyone—Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Triple H, and ADAM PEARCE.
FAST FORWARD the commercials and entrances!

Rusev & Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson
- For the record, I coined the “Unholy Alliance” phrase for RuNak.
- How are we supposed to know Gallows & Anderson are a team if they don’t have matching tights?
- No FAST FORWARD, the action continues during the break!
- Lana dressed to match Bad Cosplay Kane.
- Rusev and Nakamura win to make Patrick O’Dowd happy!
FAST FORWARD the talking and commercials
The Usos cut a promo
- Damn that’s a good promo.
Randy Orton vs. Mustafa Ali
- FAST FORWARD Randy’s entrance
- Sucks for Mustafa, already not getting an entrance.
- Byron Saxton is right, Orton is basically an active Hall Of Famer at this point.
- Mustafa Ali is a champ for working this match hurt and taking such a beating. That’s brass ring level shit right there.
- Homage to the Ace!
- FAST FORWARD the commercials! (No picture in picture this time.)
- Don’t think Ali is injured? He’s wearing a visible tailbone pad. Should have gone with the darker colored gear this week.
- Tricking Orton into the non-RKO was brilliant.
- Sucks Mustafa had to lose after the beating he took.
- FAST FORWARD
- Here’s Joe!
- Joe with the Jeff Cobb hair.

Daniel Bryan promo
- FAST FORWARD most of the talking as it’s nothing new.
- Erick Rowan sounds just like Braun Strowman.
- FAST FORWARD
Jeff Hardy & AJ Styles Promo

Carmella & Naomi vs. The IIConics vs. Mandy Rose The Goddess & Sonya Deville
- You don’t FAST FORWARD Carmella either, Patrick O’Dowd!
- FAST FORWARD the commercials.
- But I will watch The IIConics walk to the ring. Yes I will.
- FAST FORWARD the promo
- Kayla Braxton AND Mandy Rose on TV at the same time? Be still my heart.
- I hope Mandy and Naomi feud forever.
- Mandy Rose puts my marriage in jeopardy without even trying.
- FAST FORWARD whenever Mandy Rose isn’t on screen.
- Hell of a superkick from Carmella—so underrated.
- ATTENTION ALL WRESTLERS: You’ve been doing the Abdominal Stretch wrong for 100 years. Mandy Rose did it right. You’ve all had it backwards. That is all.
- MANDY ROSE WINS! (Sonya did, too.)
- “Your kids’ kids will be talking about tonight, Saxton!”
