Smackdown Live! and 205 Live (12/5/17)

Is Sonya DeVille selling Avon cosmetics on the side?

Will Konnor defeat Raven in a Paul Heyman on a Pole match?

Will Aiden English’s cover of Adele’s “Hello” finally make the Billboard Opera charts?

Will Randy Orton spend Rusev Day on the couch drinking gallons of Strawberry Quik?

Is Jack Gallagher a fifth cousin once removed of Benny Hill?

Will I ever run out of bad jokes?

None of these questions will be answered on tonight’s editions of “Smackdown Live!” and “205 Live”

  • Fingers crossed that SD will live up to Raw last night!

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      Definately. Raw was good especially roman “costing” his brothers the tag titles. Aj being champ has breathed fresh life into smackdown. KO and sami have been good. The women are rocking. Fashion files, new day and perhaps more tension between bryan and shane. All the ingredients for great. Lets get cooking.

      • I will fully admit that after such a good Raw, I’m worried about SD. It’s rare that two episodes in a row are good. There’s a lot of great stuff going on with SD these days, but they’re also dropping the ball with other things. Roode really needs to be pushed more. Rusev has been screwed six ways to Sunday. And I want to see Tamina get a solid push too.

  • Sir Mitch

    I hope SD Live can recover from a subpar 2017!
    Jinders Title Reign really killed all the buzz the Blue brand had in 2026.

    • 2026?

      There’s been a lot of issues on both shows, but SD has truly suffered.

      • Sir Mitch

        I was writing a post at the same time as my comment LOL!

        • I figured it was something like that, but I have to poke fun at you for typos. It’s in my job description.

          • Sir Mitch

            “Mumble grumble”

          • Think about how much you’ve grown!

          • Sir Mitch

            But I still want to be better!
            Just how I am.

          • I know, but when you started you went through the editing process. Now you post news daily and I’ve rarely found a typo to fix. That is huge!

          • Sir Mitch

            I’m a perfectionist…you know that LOL.

          • Which is why I call you on the big typos, but also don’t bat an eye at what you’ve been writing because there’s solid trust there. From me, that’s a HUGE thing. I’m a bit of a control freak.

          • Sir Mitch

            Marvel team up you and me with this thing!

          • I have my meetings tomorrow for (hopefully) both companies.

          • Sir Mitch

            DM me!

  • S.A.M.

    hey gang

    • SAM!

      • S.A.M.

        How are you today our Wrestle Royalty Queen?

        • Other than my coffee not kicking in yet today, all good here! You?

          • S.A.M.

            all good on my end.

  • Gator

    hey yo.

    • Gator!

      • Gator

        hey!

    • Sir Mitch

      G’day Gater!

      • Gator

  • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

  • Gator

    lets do this guys and girls.

  • S.A.M.

    lets get this thing started!!!

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Instead of waterboarding prisoners can watch marathons of the chrisleys

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Go big blue

  • Gator

    this should be interesting.

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    I love th ese guys a canadian dx

  • David Jr.

    Hello all, whats going on in Smackdown, USA network for me keeps freezing.

    • Gator

      hey man

      • David Jr.

        Hey

        • Gator

          how are you?

          • David Jr.

            Good, you?

          • Gator

            good just sore.

  • Sir Mitch

    I wonder if KO will shoot a bit regarding recent rumours which were fake?

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      I hope

  • Here we go!

  • I wish I had been able to go to smackdown live last week.

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      I wish you could have too. I hate lexington but it would have been worth it.

  • David Jr.

    Who do Zayn & Owens fight at Clash of Champions?

    • Gator

      orton and naka.

      • David Jr.

        I forgot about Nakamura.

        • Gator

          tag match?

          • David Jr.

            I assume they’ll fight in a tag match. I was thinking maybe Owens & Zayn vs. Orton & Shane. but Nakamura would be better. But I’m find with a Owens vs. Nakamura and Orton vs. Zayn match, too.

    • You’re killing me! It’s going to be in Boston and I won’t be attending as I have two small businesses going that need more attention than I could give if I went. Then again, going to a PPV could be part of WR… Yeah, don’t see it happening.

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Triple check sami

    Great line you boo cause its true

  • The Shackles have been removed form Sami Zyan. This is so much fun

  • Gator

    here comes a rko.

    • S.A.M.

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      Triple check

  • Sir Mitch

    Sami is slaying!!!

  • Gator

    oh yes!

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Nice thats a throw back stip.

  • Sir Mitch
    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      I hope they sell out

      • Sir Mitch

        I’m sure they will!

        • LDB-The Good Doctor

          You cant fire the shots of war with out BULLET S

        • DM – group

      • Be shocked if they don’t. They are starting the change the industry!

        • LDB-The Good Doctor

          I love it. I just get choked up thinking how proud Dusty would be.

          • And I just talked to Mitch about writing an article about it – so stay on the lookout for it!

  • You know what would be fun. a Rogue Ref storyline and have a ref favor KO and Sami.

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      YES a modern day danny davis, nick patrick , bill alfonzo

  • Gator

    can we pls get heel orton soon? like vicious heel orton soon.

  • Gator

    hmmmm

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Db secretly working with SKO muwhahahahaha!

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Rusev over

  • That was a neat. a Rusev Day chant.

  • David Jr.

    I guess I’m not watching Smackdown.

    • Gator

      why?

      • David Jr.

        Because it keeps freezing.

  • Xavier

    I’m most likely alone in this but I think this KO/Sami stuff is ultimately going to hurt KO. I enjoyed KO so much more when he was flying solo. I miss the days when he fight Cena straight up like a badass who would either win or go down swinging. THis whiny version of KO with Sami isn’t all that great

  • Sir Mitch

    I MUST HAVE THAT SHIRT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Rusev best unintentional face ever

  • Xavier

    I’m most likely alone in this but I think this KO/Sami stuff is ultimately going to hurt KO. I enjoyed KO so much more when he was flying solo.

    • Gator

      nah it helps sami alot obviously and it doesnt hurt ko.

  • The New Day has a Giant Pancake!

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      Bootycake bay bee

  • Sir Mitch

    Call me crazy, but I like this team of Rusev and English!

    • Xavier

      It works. I like it too

    • Gator

      its pretty swell.

    • same. they could be the equivalent to Raw’s Cesaro and Sheamus

    • S.A.M.

      it has exceeded my expectations for sure

  • Gator

    in your guys opinions why have guys like rusev and bray been booked they way they have been?

    • Because they are not working hard enough to find something good for them to do. Honestly, it’s laziness. VKM is not as high on them as he was, and because he’s so out of touch, he’s not pushing them/letting them shine. It’s all lame and stupid. #WWELogic

      • Gator

        its total bs.

        • Yes, but that’s exactly what it is.

    • Xavier

      Because WWE has a abundance of talent who are all deserving of a push but unfortunately there are only so many pushes to go around at any given time. And in Rusev and Bray’s case they got the short end of the stick

      • Gator

        ehh i guess.

      • LDB-The Good Doctor

        Despite the endless crapstorm they face they are still over to some degree.

      • David Jr.

        Exactly, you always going to have apart of the audience, saying why isn’t Wrestler A being pushed. Can’t please everybody.

  • Rusev Day beat The New Day!!!!!!

    • David Jr.

      Make it a fatal four way at Clash of Champions

  • Gator

    rusinglish!

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    I know im probably an island but i like the bludgeon brothers

    • Sir Mitch

      I do too actually!

      • LDB-The Good Doctor

        Yeah us

        • Sir Mitch

          The Outsiders Baby!!!
          Two Sweet!!!

          • LDB-The Good Doctor

            “Too sweet hand gesture ” dont tell wwe

    • I like Harper and Rowan. It just angers me they defaulted to the tag team with these two when they both could be great singles guys.

      • Gator

        truth ^ particuarly luke.

  • Gator

    please dont use all hype mojo as a heel. let him be the opposite.

  • Sir Mitch

    Thoughts on Smackdown so far?

    • Gator

      decent.

    • David Jr.

      I’d answer but I can’t.

  • I vote for Rusev Day to win the tag titles.

  • Sir Mitch

    I still don’t like Carmella’s new ring gear!

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Love carmella in the one piece

    • Gator

      me 2.

    • It looks amazing on her body, and shows how tiny her waist is. It accentuates all the greatness and hides any flaws she might think she has.

      • Sir Mitch

        I still like her old gear better!

        • I like both, as they’re both great on her body.

  • Gator

    db face is priceless lol.

  • Gator

    hahahahahah.

  • S.A.M.

    Baron’s right. Dolph has no business being in that match

  • I am rooting for Sarah Logan to succeed. she’s from not far from my home.

  • Sir Mitch

    Another cheap plug: Follow WR on Twitter at https://twitter.com/WrestleRoyalty

  • Gator

    when the name smackdown comes up who do you guys automatically think of? for me taker since hes been a big part of smackdown and the rock. because ditto and his catch phrase also

    • David Jr.

      Edge

      • Gator

        solid choice.

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      AJ he built that house

      • Gator

        ha. i like it.

      • He didn’t build the house. He renovated a House built by Taker based on plans left by The Rock.

        • Gator

          good one.

    • Asukalanchian

      Teddy “Tag Team” Long

    • Xavier

      Teddy Long for some strange reason

      • Gator

        tag team matches lol

        • Xavier

          Just for that response, you now are going to go 1 on 1 with the UNDERTAKER!

          • Gator

            NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    • Rocky! It’s still his show.

      • Gator

        im glad im not the only one!

        • Have to realize I’m watching Raw and SD from the start, and I’m two years in on SD. Now, I always think of it as Rocky’s show (for the most obvious reason), but it’s cemented in my head right now because I’m so early in the run of SD as a show.

          • Gator

            yup i think taker too.

    • Taker and Eddie

    • David Jr.

      I don’t necessarily think him, but the wrestler who has the most wins on Smackdown is Rey Mysterio.

      • Gator

        an underrated option.

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    RAW leftovers: i want Woken Matt and Bray as a team of dysfunction. Loved that promo last nightm

  • Gator

    man why is harper a heel? he was doing well as a face.

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Jobber death squad

  • I am not sure but I think Harper and Rowan are crazier now then they ever were with Bray.

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    I love Charlotte

  • Looks like Charlotte had a blast.

    • Hubby and I talked about it last night, and how great she’d be if she can deliver lines well.

  • Sami is wearing out that stress ball. LOL

  • Gator

    yes or no. Is db turning heel?

    • I actually hope he does, but not sure VKM has the stones (because he no longer has grapefruits) to do it.

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      I gleefully hope. I love heel bryan.

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Is there anyone who could come back to wwe you d like to see? I still want sandow

    • Gator

      CM PUNK. or cody rhodes.

    • S.A.M.

      i would love Rey to come back for one last run

    • All about Sandow for me.

    • David Jr.

      Braden Walker

    • Gator

      sandow as well.

    • Bobby

      Mr, Kennedy…Kennedy

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Corbin talkin smack to a little kid… love it.

  • Gator

    man they should turn roode heel soon. better as a heel.

  • on List of things to do. attend a show to see Nakamura and Roode’s Entrances.

    • Gator

      yep but i wanna see finns and brays so bad live in person.

    • Asukalanchian

      I’m not a fan of Nakamura’s entrance only because of the flashing lights are a seizure waiting to happen

  • No Gimmicks needed??? do we need to compare dolph to Chris Candido as well?

    • Sir Mitch

      Well, they both slept with Sunny LOL!

      • Mini-barf. Thanks!

        • Sir Mitch

          LOL

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Zig zag turrible finisher

    • David Jr.

      I read that in Charles Barkley’s voice.

      • LDB-The Good Doctor

        CORREC

  • Gator

    nattie sucks as a heel.

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      Triple check

    • But Ruby’s facial expressions were great!

  • Sir Mitch

    I’m just going to say it…Jinder’s Title run ruined Smackdown in 2017!

    • Gator

      one of the negative parts of smackdown ill say. not the only one

      • Sir Mitch

        Biggest one!

        • Gator

          true.

    • S.A.M.

      it was one of the worst things in 2017 for wwe

    • Asukalanchian

      I don’t blame Jinder though… I blame the moron trying to get every country on board with WWE thinking it will help them grow overall

      • Gator

        this.

      • LDB-The Good Doctor

        Cough vince cough

        • David Jr.

          Miami Vice?

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      Triple check

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    A dark day and stain on wwe jinder as champ

  • S.A.M.

    AJ’s run in wwe has really been phenomenal

    • Gator

      no surprise.

  • Gator

    damn 1 on all heels.

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Sometimes i wish raw had pip commercial s

  • Tamina has been wasted.

    • Gator

      agree.

    • But she’s also had a lot going on in her life. Now that she’s back, she’s back with the best we’ve ever seen in the WWE. True, she needs to be pushed and all that, it’s more than time.

  • Sir Mitch

    Tamina is underrated in every way!

  • Gator

    what lol.

  • Sir Mitch

    What did the southern chick say?

    • Gator

      no idea.

    • No clue! I miss things, sometimes, with your accent, but that sounded like she had a mouth full of marbles.

      • Sir Mitch

        I know this is not what you’re saying, but I don’t know why some Americans compare Aussies to people who live in the American south!

        • I’ve never heard that before.

          • Sir Mitch

            A girl from Chicago I met in London told me that some Americans make that comparison.

          • There’s a lot to be said about the American south, and one specific ex-husband &$*$@!&^$ jerk who lives down there, but I don’t see that one at all.

          • Sir Mitch

            LOL

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      Her Papaw (grandfather) said long tail cats are nervous around rocking chairs.

  • Gator

    charlotte run.

  • David Jr.

    That’s some mustache on that one Security Guard.

  • Gator

    db is going to give him the key isnt he

    • Interesting idea!

      • Gator

        yep. id say its likely.

  • I hate it when people complain about Tribute to the Troops show.

    • Gator

      psh. its whatever.

    • Sir Mitch

      I had a small gripe back when they did them in the middle east and it was only for American troops if I’m being honest!

    • The only complaint I’ve ever had, and I was the one who used to cover the show every year, was the musical guests. That’s what I truly hate about the show. Otherwise, it’s the only really great thing JBL ever did.

  • S.A.M.

    just noticed the one with the afro is Eric Watts from Tough Enough

    • I thought he looked familiar.

      • S.A.M.

        i had to look it up to be sure. i know on some local programming i have seen him on a small LA promotion. dont remember which one though

    • David Jr.

      Bill Watts’ son?

  • Daniel just handed a spare key to Sami while the camera was off him.

    • Gator

      i figured that would happen. but i didnt notice.

      • If you had been watching closely you would have seen him stick his hands into his pocket just before the camera panned off him and then he was next to Sami while they were hooking up KO.

        • Gator

          hmm should have been paying closely. nice look.

  • Sir Mitch

    Anyone else LOVING the graphics for the Clash?

  • Sir Mitch

    Ouch, Sami’s back!

    • Reminds me of Orton at WM 30.

      • LDB-The Good Doctor

        Is that the time he tripped and fell through the table. I love that one.

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      Has a 7″monitor in his kidney

    • Yeah, that looked quite uncomfortable.

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Im shocked how good a heel sami is must be a contact heel buzz from being around KO masterheel

    • Sir Mitch

      He’s been a heel before in the indies!

      • But usually under a hood. Huge difference without it.

      • LDB-The Good Doctor

        I was afraid he d generic

        • Sir Mitch

          Generic LOL!

        • Beautiful! lol

    • as I said eariler they took the shackles off him and he’s flourishing as a result.

  • a Pair of Bolt cutters. Didn’t see that coming.

  • Sir Mitch

    The ref pushed the bolt cutters towards KO LOL!

  • The ref so carefully pushing the bolt cutters at KO!

    • Sir Mitch

      You’d think they’d pan the camera out at least LOL!

  • Gator

    nvm at ur thought @josh@jmt5887:disqus

  • time for Nakamura to help Orton.

    • Gator

      yep.

  • Gator

    i thought orton was about to rko naka there.

  • Sir Mitch

    Naka and Orty vs KO and Sami?
    I can dig it!

    • Gator

      yea!

  • Gator

    ortys turning on naka. my prediction.

    • I just wrote that in the SD Royal Flush!

  • Gator

    ahhhhh shanes going to help ko and shane!

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    I smell a goat in the soup.

  • Sir Mitch

    Well, that’t it for me!
    See you next week guys.

  • Gator
