  • CJ Blaze

    Happy Halloween! Tonight, we’ve got a 2/3 Falls match, Nakamura vs. Owens, and a Fright Night 4-Way later on 205 Live.

    • David Jr.

      I’m surprise it’s not a Fright Night Fatal Five-Way.

      • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

        Not yet, it’s not.

  • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

    Good line up tonight. But it ll take alot to beat Raw with Braun s murder of axel. That was epic. Will team raw TRICK smackdown and TREAT them to a beatdown……? The answer comes later.

  • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

    Happy HEELoween everyone! Who’s ready for Smackdown?

    • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

      I am

  • Sir Mitch

    Hello WR People!

    • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

      Hello Mitch

    • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

      Rumor has it Braun is still powerslaming axel

  • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

    So we joked about Kane’s new gimmick being that he takes out the “indy darlings.” I was thinking today about how great it would be if someone like Baron Corbin was given that gimmick we he arrived in WWE. Give him the reverse of Randy Orton’s Legend Killer gimmick. Kall him the “Indy Killer”. Thoughts?

    • CJ Blaze

      He started out that way in NXT against the likes of Joe and Aries. He should keep it up. Would’ve been great against Styles. Plenty of stars left to use this gimmick on. He should use it.

      • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

        I use to not be a big fan of Corbin’s. He used that generic biker music, he was boring on the mic, and they didn’t really utilize his skills well. More and more, I’ve grown to like him though. Changing his music and letting him cut better promos really helped.

  • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

    Is shane gonna wrestle at ss or not? Him and angle could be nice

    • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

      If Shane doesn’t captain Team Smackdown, I’ll eat my hat.

    • Sir Mitch

      He will be named SS team captain!

      • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

        Didn’t he captain last year? Didn’t Stephanie call him out for that? Kind of ironic this year…

        • CJ Blaze

          Daniel Bryan named him captain last year.

      • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

        Yes

    • CJ Blaze

      If they don’t go in that direction, I would call it a mistake.

    • David Jr.

      Just hope they order the Sugar Glass.

      • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

        Lots and lots of it

  • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

    What if the indies and companies like ROH, NEW JAPAN,AAA all of them partnered up and a got a company to do a wrestling network out of them? That would be an amazing network

    • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

      If I owned my own company, I wouldn’t go for that. Either the subscription would be far too high and no one would buy it, or I wouldn’t make money because of the low subscription cost. If Impact suddenly went into business and all of their content was added to the WWE Network, either the price would go up, or WWE would be making less money off the Network because Impact would likely get a cut of the profit.

  • CJ Blaze

    Tom Phillips is back from “assignment.” I wonder if he was sick too..

  • Sir Mitch

    Showtime!

  • drew

    what up fanatics.

    • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

      Whatssuuppp drew

      • drew

        nm. whats up idb.

        • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

          Lots of kids blood sugar tonight

          • drew

            including mine.

    • Sir Mitch

      Drew, always a pleasure!

      • drew

        my pleasure.

  • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

    Shane brings up a topic of discussion. Is Smackdown still the B-Show? Or is it now the equal of RAW?

    • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

      It does more with two hours than raw does with three most weeks

      • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

        I agree. However, does it show where it matters? Ratings, superstar merch sales, ect… Just in here alone, I notice less people than there were for RAW last night.

        • Sir Mitch

          Jinder effect!
          But ticket sales for both brands are down 21% this quarter.

          • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

            Juicer Mahal nor Bork Lebnor help. When your main title is locked up by either someone everyone hates (in a bad way) or someone who is never there, ticket sales will lack. It wasn’t so bad when they pushed the importance of the US/IC title, but they’ve stopped even doing that.

          • Sir Mitch

            Agree 100%
            But lacklustre writing and booking also doesn’t help.

          • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

            How can WWE manage to put some of the most genius and most ignorant writing into the same show? I’m seriously dumbfounded by this.

          • Sir Mitch

            Not everything is going to be brilliant…we all get that.
            But some constancy isn’t too much to ask it it?

          • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

            How I could praise WWE for their genius booking of TLC, then be lost for words when they have Balor job to Kane less than 24 hours later. I don’t understand.

          • Sir Mitch

            I felt that way the SD after Battleground.
            That SD was so good…and the PPV that preceded it was one of the worst Ive ever seen!

          • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

            Lord Amen.The fact smackdown still doing well with the giant load of crap weighing down is a testament to how strong smackdown is. I do think singh 1 & singh 2 have a future on 205 live though. Just please rid us of the steroid Maharaja

          • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

            Cruiserweight Tag Division?

          • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

            I love that idea

          • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

            I just wish the Cruiserweight Division was doing better.

          • David Jr.

            I’d blame the NFL in the USA, but they’re ratings are down, too.

    • CJ Blaze

      They’re more equal than before, but Raw is still 1A.

    • Sir Mitch

      It felt like that before the Superstar shake up!

  • Sir Mitch

    I swear I see more and more Bullet Club shirts in WWE crowds every week!

    • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

      The invasion continues.

  • drew

    i love this rivarly.

  • Sir Mitch

    Shane is better on the microphone than most people realise!

    • drew

      he good.

    • BlazeKing

      Shane’s a friggin’ narrator, lol.

      • Sir Mitch

        I was wondering when you’d show up LOL.
        How have you been mate…miss us?

        • BlazeKing

          You know I missed you guys!

          • Sir Mitch

            Shockingly…we missed you to LOL!

          • drew

            who is this guy sir mitch?

  • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

    Yeah

  • drew

    raw will attack next week.

  • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

    It is interesting to see RAW portrayed as the heel on SmackDown, vice versa on RAW, and the crowd respond accordingly.

    • Sir Mitch

      People like underdogs!

    • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

      Nice touch for sure.

  • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

    May team smackdown be GLORIOUS

  • Sir Mitch

    Shame people don’t show up for SD live chats.
    Most people seem to sadly DVR this show!

    • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

      No lie, until I found WR, I DVR’d the show too. Flash usually take preference, but I enjoy the conversation here, so I can DVR Flash instead. LOL

      • David Jr.

        I DVR Flash, too.

      • Sir Mitch

        You a member of my Comic book and sci fi Facebook group?

        • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

          Probably not. I recently recreated a Facebook again. Long story. I’d love an invite though. Always nice to discuss with fellow NEERRRRRRRDDDDSSS.

      • David Jr.

        Do you watch any other Arrowverse show or just Flash?

        • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

          All of them. I’m still behind from last week. Haven’t gotten to them yet.

    • BlazeKing

      I just didn’t know where everybody was for a while 🙁

      • drew

        we hereeee…..:)

      • Sir Mitch

        Even in the old chats…SD was always WAY less busy than Raw!

        • BlazeKing

          Tuesdays are weird

    • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

      Im usually torn between this and forged in fire. But i dvr fif.

  • drew

    NERRRRRRDDDSS.

  • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

    Dolph gonna win this i got that aw crap feeling

  • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

    How much longer do you see Dolph in WWE? Isn’t his contract coming up or something?

    • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

      I hope. I just never liked him. The overselling gets on my nerves like its hbk.

      • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

        Anyone remember HBK overselling for Hogan?

        • David Jr.

          That was the best overselling ever.

        • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

          Unfortunately

      • BlazeKing

        He did it for you… All for YOU!!!

  • drew

    he will leave eventually.

  • CJ Blaze

    This feud has been fine and all, but I’m still puzzled as to why Roode had to win dirty at HIAC.

    • drew

      because dolph cheated earlier during that match.

    • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

      I might be in the minority, but I just haven’t been into this feud. Roode and Ziggler are great talents seperately. But they just don’t mesh well in the ring. Their matches have been meh so far.

    • BlazeKing

      Didn’t have to, just wanted to. That’s Bobby Roo for ya!

  • Sir Mitch

    Am I the only one who feels these two just haven’t clicked in the ring during this feud?

    • CJ Blaze

      This match has been better, but I’m not totally buying Roode as a face.

      • drew

        neither am i.

      • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

        Yeah… He is definitely better as a Ric Flair esque heel.

      • BlazeKing

        He’s *too* face IMO. Needs a lil bit of Flair dirtiness under his fingernails.

    • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

      Definitely not the only one. For some reason, these two just don’t pair well.

  • drew

    #roodeneedestobeeheel

    • David Jr.

      He is a Dirty Heel.

      • BlazeKing

        Now that’s some quick wit right there, lol!

    • CJ Blaze

      Because it pays to be Roode.

    • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

    • Sir Mitch

      Working I think!

      • drew

        gotcha

        • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

          What about the Queen? Still dealing with a power outage?

          • CJ Blaze

            Unfortunately

  • Sir Mitch

    Here is a good one to discuss during the ad break: Who in WWE do you think will break out in 2018?

    • drew

      sami zayn. or finn

    • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

      Gimmie some more Joe, please.

    • drew

      joe. joe joe

    • CJ Blaze

      Jason Jordan. Somehow, some way.

      • Sir Mitch

        Really?

      • drew

        not as a face. hell no

    • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

      Sami

    • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

      Daniel Bryan. #TrollLife

  • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

    New day rules

  • drew

  • Sir Mitch

    Kofi as Brother Love just feels…wrong!

  • Sir Mitch

    LOVE that my Girl Becky is SD Team Captain!

  • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

    • Sir Mitch

      #TrollLife

  • drew

    becky stepping up on the mic

  • drew

    woooooooooo

  • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

    LOVE Baron Corbin’s music lately. No more generic motorcycle sounds and cheap rock music.

  • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

    This is the smackdown title.

  • BlazeKing

    New Day is in the HoF before it’s even official.

    • drew

      yup

  • Sir Mitch

    Sin Cara weighs more than 198 I’m sure of it!

  • drew

    psh. sin cara.

  • Sir Mitch

    Sin Cara actually looks like a viable contender right here.
    I like it!

    • CJ Blaze

      For the first time in six years.

      • Sir Mitch

        Hey, sometimes all someone needs is an opportunity!

    • BlazeKing

      That’s because Hunico knows how to work this style really well!

      • Sir Mitch

        Yeah, your right actually.
        He can brawl as well as high fly!

  • thefen2001

    What’d I miss, peeps? Late to the game as per.

    • BlazeKing

      Sin Cara going HAM on Corbin again

    • CJ Blaze

      Results above 🙂

      • thefen2001

        Saw that, however sometimes text results don’t fill in all the gaps 😉.

  • drew

    i liked that

  • drew

    welp excuse me while i skip this next match

    • Sir Mitch

      I would if I could mate!

  • BlazeKing

    Sin Cara turned into Braun throwing chairs an s*** hahaha!

    • Sir Mitch

      Braun throws people…not chairs LOL!

      • BlazeKing

        He threw that chair directly into Roman’s face!

        • Sir Mitch

          Ah, yes you are right.
          Forgot about that!

          • BlazeKing

            Never forget lol

  • Sir Mitch

    I am LOVING the obvious chemistry that Gable and Benjamin have!

  • David Jr.

    2/3 Shield vs. Usos
    or 2/3 vs. Benjables?

  • Sir Mitch

    The sooner the WWE India tour happens the better.

    Jinder Mahal Title reign is KILLING SD and he needs to drop the the Belt ASAP!

    • drew

      im not watching that segment/match. as much as i love aj. no

  • CJ Blaze

    Brock vs. Jinder – loser stops using steroids

    • Sir Mitch

      How the hell are they going to book that mess?
      Who the hell thought booking that mess would be a good idea?

      • CJ Blaze

        Good ole out of touch Vinnie Mac

        • Sir Mitch

          Has to have been.
          Someone really needs to save him from himself!

    • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

      Steroids on a pole match.

      • CJ Blaze

        Perfect!

    • drew

      yesss

  • Sir Mitch

    It’s a bloody crime for AJ to have to sell that finishing move!

    • drew

      blah.

  • drew

    sami i love you but you did the same thing lol.

  • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

    Does anyone think anyone is buying jinder as a champ, as a threat to anyone let alone brock steroid? Come on no ones drinking that kool-aid.

    • Sir Mitch

      Vince is!
      But he is LITERALLY the only one.

      • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

        Does he believe it or just to stuborn to admit he s wrong

        • Sir Mitch

          He truly believes it!
          Jinder isn’t even drawing all that well in India!

      • drew

        vince is a pos.

  • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

    Back to rusev over big e i suppose.

  • drew

    they should have stuck with luke harper as a face.,

  • drew

    norfolk?? thats 20 mins from me!

  • Sir Mitch

    These costumes honestly make me uncomfortable!

    • David Jr.

      The One Man Gang as the Akeem the African Dream was more uncomfortable than Big E.

      • Sir Mitch

        I suppose.

        • David Jr.

          Anyone who lived through it,would agree with me. Though I think that would be only Botch.

          • Sir Mitch

            Point taken!

  • drew

    these are funny.

  • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

    Honestly, it’s clear they have no idea what to do with New Day right now.

    • drew

      true

  • drew

    rusev vs big e>>>>

  • David Jr.

    Corey Graves needs help. Does anyone no a good psychiatrist he can see?

  • drew

    big E and rusev has huge babyface potential.

  • drew

    rusev wins!

  • drew

    yesssss

  • Sir Mitch

    I am not looking forward to ANOTHER Fashion Files segment.
    I want them to end SO BADLY!

    • drew

      boo you. mitch.

  • drew

    fashion files rock.

  • drew

    are you serious?

  • Sir Mitch

    Ooookay, that’s just a little bit creepy!

  • drew

    tye dillenger is ruined.

    • Sir Mitch

      He was ruined eons ago!

  • Sir Mitch

    Where is everyone?

    • drew

      yo

  • drew

    ko vs naka. yesss

  • David Jr.

    Does anybody think Kevin Owens wins tonight or Rusev wins next week?

    • Sir Mitch

      KO will lose and he and Sami will cost team SD the win at SS.
      Rusev will win next week.

      • David Jr.

        With Shane, Roode & Orton already on Team Smackdown, I was wondering if they would have a Heel on the Team.

      • drew

        if that happens i expect a smackdown beat down on sami and ko

    • drew

      naka wins

      • David Jr.

        So Rusev will be the only heel or will Smackdown be all Faces?

        • drew

          not sure

    • CJ Blaze

      I sure hope not for both.

      • David Jr.

        So you want Smackdown to be all faces?

        • CJ Blaze

          Works for me. I want Sami & KO to screw them over.

          • David Jr.

            Makes Sense.

    • drew

      who does ru ru face?

      • David Jr.

        AJ Styles

        • drew

          oh yeah. aj wins.

  • drew

    my boy sami.

  • Sir Mitch

    This is such a great match!

  • drew

    who wants to see sami naka again?

    • Sir Mitch

      YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!

    • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

      MEEEE!!!

    • David Jr.

  • drew

    ooooooo!

  • Sir Mitch

    Outta Nowhere!!!

  • drew

    smackdown will lose.

  • drew

    randy vs ko???? hell yes!

  • David Jr.

    If AJ Styles wins next week. Randy Orton will be the youngest member of Team Smackdown.

    • CJ Blaze

      Wow. That’s quite the statistic.

  • “Simply Villainous” Myrtle

    G’night everyone!! Twas fun.

    • drew

      night villain

  • Sir Mitch

    Pretty good episode of SD this week.
    See you Monday WR people!

  • ldb-SHIELD BREAKER

    Good smackdown peace

  • Vomkrieg

    So this is where everyone went.

    • HA! You found us! Cool!

      • Vomkrieg

        For some reason, I had a ban at the other place and couldn’t post for a 4 weeks, and in that time, everyone left 🙂

        • Vomkrieg

          And no one could figure out why I had been banned, and apparently I wasn’t on any ban lists. And then it started working again. But it wasn’t until today when Zach mentioned what happened that I found here.

          I had just assumed someone had gone crazy and ended up adding a bunch of people to a ban list by mistake.

          • It was time to try something new so we’re doing it! It was FAR more that than anything else. We’re glad you’ve found us and hope you’ll stick around!

          • Vomkrieg

            Should do. Not much point having a comment section with no comments 🙂
