The Good, Bad and Ugly: SmackDown Live (03/26/2019)

After an incredibly disappointing, Ugly, Monday Night Raw, SD Live, the “better” brand is up to bat.  WrestleMania is on it’s way, closer by the second and after one of the worst Monday Night Raw’s in recent history, can SmackDown fix the void?  Or will be have some more Ugly, times ahead?  Let’s do this!

After an incredibly disappointing, Ugly, Monday Night Raw, SD Live, the “better” brand is up to bat.  WrestleMania is on it’s way, closer by the second and after one of the worst Monday Night Raw’s in recent history, can SmackDown fix the void?  Or will be have some more Ugly, times ahead?  Let’s do this!

GOOD

New Day Rocks!

Upset by the recent injustices on Kofi Kingston by Vince McMahon, New Day wanted some answers.  Vinnie Mac never disappoints when he is called out.  This was no different.  As usual Daniel Bryan couldn’t help but put his opinion out there and simply wants New Day to go away.  Vince doesn’t feel their worth in such a huge event still but loves to make Superstars out of nothing.  Luckily for him New Day is out of control and always delivers fantastic content.  This promo was no different.  We now have the golden ticket for Kofi to get his WrestleMania moment but at the cost of his New Day Teammates having to endure an almost insurmountable feat of winning and unwinnable Tag Team Gauntlet Match later in the show.  Good, solid opening with fantastic talent! 

WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship Match- Asuka (C) vs. Charlotte Flair

Where did this even come from? As it should be this match was pure fire.  The two prestigious vets beat the ever loving hell out of each other.  This was non-stop and completely insane!  Asuka is unbelievable in her element and Charlotte Flair can work, especially with a high caliber talent like Asuka.  We had a straight fight on our hands here, with accents of delicate submission work and high risk, high spots that the two competitors are known for.  The whole shock of it all still fresh, everyone was sucked into this the entire time, going crazy!  This could have gone either way, Charlotte had it, then Asuka had it, but only one could take it all the way.  Charlotte hit a disgusting “Spanish Fly” but Asuka managed to continue almost getting Charlotte into an “Asuka Lock.”  Unfortunately nothing could stop Charlotte who managed to get out and fight her way into a “figure 8” Winning her 8th Title!  This was bananas and a hell of a way to get people pumped and add some shock and awe.  Great match!  What will this mean for Asuka?  I, for one can’t wait to find out!

Kurt Angle vs. AJ Styles

Unlike his horrendous and unfortunate showing on Monday Night Raw, a much needed boost occurred in thi s one.  Angle looked hungry, pumped and sharp.  Maybe it was the talent of AJ, or the pure comfort of knowing he didn’t have to do much, but this was just better.  The two sparred a bit and it looked Good. Out of nowhere as always Randy Orton slithered in and took out AJ Styles before Angle took him out with an “Angle Slam.”  AJ Wins by D.Q. but it was short and quality.  Good, showing. 

The Miz/Shane O’ Mac

Prior to this, the promos and the feud between these two has been a tough one to watch.  It doesn’t add much value and no one seems to excited by the whole thing.  Not taking anything away from the talented Miz and Shane but it just hasn’t clicked for most, with so much bigger and better stories around it.  This week Miz reiterated that he has a lot of heat with Shane due to the disrespect and assault on his Father.  Miz requested a “Falls Count Anywhere Match” which will add to the usual high spot shenanigans of Shane McMahon and almost guarantees some shock and awe.  Shane would not let up on poking at Miz about his Father and how much joy he felt embarrassing him.  After Shane brought Miz’s Mom into it, Miz had enough and destroyed the Security Team as well as anyone else crazy enough to confront him.  After Sanity got the upper hand, Miz continued his advance and assault.  This was actually a Good promo and was one of the best in this whole, storyline. 

Tag Team Gauntlet Match (New Day for Kofi’s WM Match)

Gauntlet Match 1- New Day vs. Gallows and Anderson

Talk about an uphill battle.  We have some talent here.  This looked intense, which it needed to be given how important the stipulation is.  Nothing is perfect and this was far from it but it was certainly Good.  Quick “UpUpDownDown” and New Day Advances!

Gauntlet Match 2- New Day vs. Shinsuke Nakamura and Rusev w/ Lana

If it couldn’t get any harder out comes two of the best in my opinion.  The underutilized, mega team of Nakamura and Rusev whom are amazing top tier talents.  This was another strong showing by all involved as everyone can’t help but be Good at all times.  Rusev particularly was sharp isolating the smaller Xavier Woods, making everyone a bit unsure of Kofi’s fate.  The shot of Kofi watching with the SmackDown roster especially “The Man” by his side was a great shot and really was iconic given the times.  Woods looked like he couldn’t continue taking a beating most of the match.  He finally got some room to breathe and got the hot tag to a pumped Big E, who cleaned house, destroying Nakamura with “belly to belly’s” and a “Big Splash.”  Big E would not be denied and after some opposition tagged Woods in and hit another huge “UpUpDownDown” Winning Again! 

Gauntlet Match 3- New Day vs. The Bar

Things just got real Bad for New Day, as the unforgiving The Bar was next.  This just looked like it was over for New Day from the start.  However after The Bar just destroyed Big E, Xavier Woods got the much needed tag and went off.  Woods hit a series of offense with authority and would not quit, dismantling The Bar, not letting them have a moment to catch up.  However The Bar regained control and again got Big E into trouble isolating him.  Again it was Woods who tried to save Kofi’s chances but Cesaro got the upper hand.  The Bar kept everyone guessing until Woods got an unthinkable roll up on Sheamus for the Win!  The Bar beat the hell out of Woods and Big E for their trouble making it impossible for New Day to have a chance to Win the last match.  The Bar relentlessly took out New Day and brutally protested their shocking loss with violence.  New Day was done finishing Big E off through a table before the Uso’s were announced. 

Gauntlet Match 4- New Day vs (SD Live Tag Team Champs) The Usos

This was just awesome!  I love it!  It looked like Uso’s were about to pick the leftovers of the New Day and destroy their spirit once and for all.  Usos after an extensive history with New Day simply put, gave it up for Kofi out of the tremendous respect they have for the underrated Superstar.  This was a Good twist and another win on the Good Column. 

Gauntlet Match 5- New Day vs. Daniel Bryan and Rowan

This started to become the typical WWE overkill but luckily the talent was extraordinary.  Rowan and The Champ took full advantage of New Day’s fatigue and kept everyone on the edge of their seat with anticipation.  Daniel Bryan got Big E in a deep “half crab” and it looked lost.  It was the fired up Xavier Woods who kept hope alive, single handedly taking out the instigators before Big E “Spiked” Daniel Bryan through the mat followed by a “Big Ending” but was broken up by Rowan.  Rowan nearly finished things but it was the tenacity of Woods and the raw power of Big E tipping the table on top of Rowan for the countout that got the much needed and much wanted victory!  Countout and all this was Good.  More importantly, it means Kofi is going to “KofiMania” and that my friends is Good for everyone!  Awesome ending to an awesome show!  Bravo!

BAD and UGLY-  Apparently Raw hogged the Bad and Ugly for the week so far, because SmackDown had None of it!  All Good!

FINAL

Good- 8

Bad- 0

Ugly- 0

Overall

This was a clean sweep!  All Good!  Great SmackDown and it could not have happened at a better time!  Raw stunk, but the “blue” brand killed it!  What a sick show!  This is what WWE should be looking like around WrestleMania and we can only hope that they continue their dominance.

Crap Raw but Fantastic SmackDown, we have the best of the best NXT left for the week.  This really looks Good right now for everyone involved but Raw needs to get their shit together in a big way next week!  Will we be seeing a lot of Good before the big day? Or is there a lot of Ugly truth left in the crunch time?  Catch you on the next Good, Bad and Ugly only on thechairshot.com!

Baron Corbin: On Top Of WWE Whether He Wins Or Loses At ‘Money in the Bank’

Published

on

Baron Corbin WWE Crown Jewel

Baron Corbin is the man that WWE fans love to hate. He’s arrogant, he’s egotistical and he’s despicable. He’s everything a heel should be and much more. He also seems to be Vince McMahon’s favorite heel and that’s a good thing for The Lone Wolf.

In any other circumstance in any other era, Baron Corbin would be regarded as the hottest heel in WWE. He’s got the right attitude, he’s got the company’s support and most importantly he has the spotlight. So even as his critics shake their heads, there is no denying that Baron Corbin, briefcase or not, is still a winner at Money in the Bank.


Get your very own Baron. Corbin. Sucks. shirt!


The May 19 event features two big Ladder Matches and Corbin is involved in one. Baron will step into the ring with Ricochet, Randy Orton, Ali, Sami Zayn, Andrade, Finn Bálor and Drew McIntyre. The man that wins the match wins the aforementioned briefcase and a world title opportunity.

Corbin has a fighting chance to go over, just as every man in this match. Fans can pick and choose their favorites but when it comes to the Money in the Bank concept, the fact is that it no longer leads to a guaranteed title win. At this point, it’s nothing more than a glorified plot device.

This means that anyone can win because a victory doesn’t necessarily mean a championship victory down the road. Vince McMahon can change his mind, as he often does and when that happens, all bets are off. The briefcase and the contract inside of it, will go wherever he wants it to go.

So Ricochet, who has not exactly been booked as the breakout star that he perhaps should be, could walk away as the winner. But it also means that Andrade, who also seems to be Vince’s favorite, may not win anything. 

Drew has been on the cusp of greatness for his entire WWE existence, but that doesn’t mean he will finally get over the hump on May 19. Ali and Bálor seem to be in the same spot when it comes to fan favorites that can’t build momentum. So it’s entirely possible that one of them will pull down the case in the end. 

Then there’s Randy Orton, who could win or lose any match and still come back in the same main event spot he’s always enjoyed. The fact is that just when fans think they figure out what WWE is planning to do in this bout, the company can suddenly turn it all upside down. 

But the only pick that really makes any sense is Baron Corbin. However it also makes no sense at all and that’s because of those critics who simply cannot believe that a guy like Baron is anywhere close to the top of the company.

Common sense says he will win due to past booking and current standing. While that shouldn’t make a difference, just as it doesn’t for anyone else, it absolutely does here. That’s because of the overwhelming sense of dread that many fans have when it comes to Baron Corbin. They believe that his main event run is only just beginning.

It’s incomprehensible to many that Baron would ever get this far. Yes, he showed promise in the beginning and yes, he seemed to have a lot of potential. But then he entered the weekly grind of WWE and suddenly that potential began to wane.

His robotic promos were obvious from the very start. It’s as if Baron is reading a teleprompter every time he speaks. There is no emotion and no passion in his words and there really never has been. Fans indeed hate him for all the right reasons because he is an effective heel. But there’s something much deeper just under the surface.

For diehard fans, Corbin is flat and simply does not have it. He looks the part and he’s putting forth the effort, but fans know when a guy is playing a role instead of feeling it. For casual fans, Corbin is a mean spirited bad guy who deserves to get taken down. In both cases, Corbin is just a guy in the ring and nothing more.

His skills are unimpressive and he rarely ever has a great match with anyone. That’s not to suggest that he cannot work. He’s very capable in the ring and he has the fundamentals. But when it comes to piecing everything together and making a serious impact, Baron doesn’t seem to have what it takes.

But the fact is that doesn’t matter. WWE is Vince McMahon’s company and when he decides a guy should be elevated, then that guy is elevated. The company spent an ample amount of time telling the world that Baron Corbin was responsible for tanking the ratings on Monday Night Raw, yet he’s one win away from becoming Universal champion. The two sides don’t seem to match but then again, why would they?

He continues to be featured every week and he continues to be booked as a monster heel on TV because that’s what WWE wants. Did Corbin work his way up to this level by getting over in his matches and on the mic? No. But he’s heading to the top nevertheless.

So yes, Baron Corbin may indeed win the Money in the Bank briefcase on May 19. Or maybe he won’t. Either way, he doesn’t need a career defining victory to prove anything to anyone in WWE. The decision was apparently made a long time ago. Win or lose, Baron Corbin wins, whether fans like it or not.
