Smackdown Live! (1/2/18)

Will New Day star in a reboot of “The Little Rascals”?

Can Kevin Owens be cured of Skittles pox?

Will Daniel Bryan buy a pet tarantula?

Does Byron Saxton plan to retire in Burkina Faso?

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

  • Sir Mitch

          thank ya thank ya! RUSEV CRUSH!

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Dvr d raw and watched it. Roman won clean bleh. Brock mock ing kane was just stupid. But i hate the white ape bork sucks. Was nice to see the goodbrothers reunite with balor. Hope that means good for all three. And my goodness braun powerslammed ryhno and heath for half an hour. The part is it was the best part of the three hours. Love braun. Smackdown has been so good i hope they keep it going.

  • I will fully admit that I would lick KO if he had Skittles Pox, but not right after working a match.

    • Sir Mitch

      LOL

    • Rusev Day

      woaaah….

      • Hey, I hold in my girly side much of the time, but I like Skittles! Though I wouldn’t lick just any members of the roster with Skittles Pox, just certain members.

        • Rusev Day

          interesting.

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      I heard Skittle Pox were not contagious.

      • Yeah, that’s what they say, but…

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    hey gang!!!

    • Heya S.A.M.!

      • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

        Hiya Queen!!

    • Sir Mitch

      S.A.M. I AM!!!
      Always a pleasure!

      • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Showtime

    • Sir Mitch

      Oi, that’s my line!!!
      LOL

      • LDB-The Good Doctor

        Sorry

        • LDB-The Good Doctor

          Crab waddles away

          • My teen daughter Sam plays Zoidberg a lot. Hands up, clapping fingers, leaves the room sideways.

          • LDB-The Good Doctor

            Now thats my kinda kid!

          • She is rather amazing, if I do say so myself.

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    time to get this thing started!!!

  • Rusev Day

    here we go. RUSEV CRUSSSSH!

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    I know im selfish but i could dig a heel bryan

    • Rusev Day

      wouldnt work. imo.

    • I agree. There’s so much he can do without taking a bump, and I want to see his character grow and evolve.

      • LDB-The Good Doctor

        Look how good sami has done. Its outside the box for DB i think he d enjoy it.

        • He’s a great heel, it’s convincing the fans that he’s heel that will be much harder.

  • Rusev Day

    cant wait for the continuation of shanes heel turn.

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    WWE Title match at Royal Rumble:
    AJ vs. KO, AJ vs. Zayn, AJ vs. KO vs. Zayn or something else?

    • Rusev Day

      im guessing aj ko.

  • Rusev Day

    so damn over.

  • Sir Mitch

    No matter what happens at the Rumble…Styles vs Nakamura for the WWE Title NEEDS to happen at Mania!

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Too bad we never got aj vs bryan

    • Rusev Day

      i agree.

    • Sir Mitch

      There is probably a tape of them Wrestling in ROH laying around somewhere!

      • Rusev Day

        id say is that likely.

      • July 29, 2007 – Pro Wrestling Guerrilla – “American Dragon” Bryan Danielson defeated El Generico to win the PWG World heavyweight title

        October 28, 2007 – PWG in Germany: “American Dragon” Bryan Danielson defeated El Generico to retain the PWG heavyweight title.

        February 7, 2009 – Ring of Honor: El Generico defeated “American Dragon” Bryan Danielson in a singles match.

        • Sir Mitch

          AJ vs Bryan not Bryan vs Zayn!

          • NO, I screwed up. I went Bry vs Sami. Let me look for AJ/Bry.

          • LDB-The Good Doctor

            Welcome to everydsy of my life

          • Mine too. If you knew how long it took me to write up a news article you’d be mortified. The guys post quickly, and it takes me forever to make sure I have all the names right.

          • Though shocked there’s only three of the other to be found!

          • November 1, 2003 – Ring of Honor: AJ Styles defeated “American Dragon” Bryan Danielson in approx 25 minutes.

            September 16, 2004–IWA Mid South: Bryan Danielson defeated A.J. Styles.

            September 18, 2004–IWA Mid South Ted Petty Invitational Round#4: AJ Styles beat Samoa Joe and Bryan Danielson to win the TPI Tournament.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            January 28, 2006: ROH Dissension
            ROH Champion Bryan Danielson defeats AJ Styles.

          • Huh, missed that one! Not listed on my favorite bios site! They are usually on point! So strange.

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    AJ Styles will the WWE Champion heading into the Royal Rumble for the 2nd straight year. The only 2 other wrestlers to be WWE Champion at consecutive Royal Rumble PPV’s are John Cena and CM Punk.

  • Rusev Day

    i like how shane is turning it around on db. total heel move.

  • Sir Mitch

    Bryan is still the most over guy in WWE today!

    • Rusev Day

      aj very close.

  • Rusev Day

    this will be good.

  • Sir Mitch

    While Smackdown didn’t have a great 2017…I think 2018 will be the year of the blue brand!
    There is always less BS on Smackdown than Raw.

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      2 hours of action not 3 of filler

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Nothing aginst aiden but why aint it rusev

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    This tag match should half match and half amazing

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    What if al bundy saw his wife on modern family

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Its old jason jordan

  • Sir Mitch

    Usos rapping gimmick is getting old!

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      Should only be used for rap battles…..of history

  • Sir Mitch

    I smell a Title change!

  • Rusev Day

    have a question for yall. whats the best wwe match that never happened in ur guys opinions? taker sting ? rock sting? rock hbk? hbk sting?

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      Taker sting, cena hogan, shawn micheals aj

      • Rusev Day

        good ones.

    • Sir Mitch

      Jeff Hardy vs Rey Mysterio would have been cool!

      • Rusev Day

        nice.

    • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

      Eddie Guerrero vs HBK

      • Sir Mitch

        Oh man, that would have been SOOOOO GOOOOOD!!!!!

        • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

          all time classic had it happened

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            It was going to happen at Wrestlemania 22.

          • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

            yeah thats why it always is one that comes to mind

      • Rusev Day

        ooooooooo.

      • While all the matches look good, this is the one that I wish had happened. I love those two so much.

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      Andre the Giant vs. the Undertaker

      • Rusev Day

        another one. i guess sting rock or hbk rock is too obvious.

        • David “Top 10” Jr.

          Sting vs. Pick a WWE Superstar could be one.

      • LDB-The Good Doctor

        Andre big show

        • Both in their prime. Otherwise, not so much.

        • David “Top 10” Jr.

          Undertaker wrestled his first match in WWE in 1990, Andre the Giant wresled his last match in 1990. So Andre vs. Undertaker was possible. But Andre died 2 years before Big Show started in WCW, So that’s why I didn’t say Big Show.

  • Rusev Day

    woah!

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Wow easy

  • Sir Mitch

    Called it!

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    wait was the wrong Uso pinned?

  • Sir Mitch

    Spoke Too Soon!

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Just for real when has ref ever said my bad let me give it another go.

  • Sir Mitch

    Just a reminder for anyone interested, we will be doing an open thread for NJPW WrestleKingdom.
    Details here: https://wrestleroyalty.com/2018/01/02/final-njpw-wrestle-kingdom-12-card-and-match-hype/

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Samoa joes favorite interviewer

  • Sir Mitch

    Sami will go over here with shenanigans and we’ll get a triple threat at the Rumble for the WWE Title!

    • Rusev Day

      interesting.

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Death by Bludgeoning for breezango again

    • Sir Mitch

      Looks like it!

      • LDB-The Good Doctor

        They need new friends ascension are friends where you dont enemies

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    The first ever match in the history of Raw pit two WWE Hall of Famers against each other.
    The first ever match in the history of Nitro, the two opponents are not in the WWE Hall of Fame.
    I don’t think anybody would say that Raw’s first match vs. better than Nitro’s first match, though.

    • Now the wheels are turning. You might have started something.

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        What did I start?

    • Sir Mitch

      The first Nitro match was Brian Pillman vs Jushin Thunder Liger I believe!
      Arguably two men who should be in the Hall Of Fame!

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        You are correct. Koko B. Ware vs. Yokozuna was Raw’s first match.

  • Rusev Day

    Happy Rusev Day!

  • Sir Mitch

    Remember when the Ascension was doing what the Bludgeon Brothers do back in NXT?

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    I predict Mojo Rawley and Xavier Woods are winning in the first round of the United States Championship tournament.

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    nobody steals another man’s wish…

  • Sir Mitch

    Looks like they’re keeping Rusev heel despite #RusevDay being Over AF!

    • Rusev Day

      that wont last. rusev as heel.

  • Rusev Day

    I love rusev.

    • We couldn’t tell.

      • Rusev Day

        lmao.

  • Sir Mitch

    New Day…Blugh!

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      Keep it Tight.

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    The winner of this match will face Jinder Mahal next, so is the winner, really a winner?

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Liseten close and lend an ear… what day follows the new year?……. Its rusev day!

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Corey Graves saying a line from the song Gaston. Not something I’d ever thought I’d hear.

  • Sir Mitch

    Fun Fact: The U.S. Title Belt has not had a design change since it was introduced to WWE in 2002!
    The WWE Title has had four design changes in that timeframe!

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      Yeah but they all suck. I loved the old us title is was big and looked important.

      • See, I like WCW’s ‘big gold belt’ more than the WWF Championship belt, personally. Even the real BGB with the top bent back looked more impressive than almost anything else. Especially coming off some of the really small belts that came before it.

        Also, I don’t like the look of perfectly round face plates, they look funny on the body. I’ve defended the dirty penny tag straps, but because of the look, not the shape.

        • LDB-The Good Doctor

          Yeah. When ric flair or sting came out with that huge gold belt as a kid i thought fdang this guy is the real champ

          • Exactly! The WWF Championship belt never gave me the feels the BGB did.

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      The United States Championship was introduced to the WWE in 2003.

      • Sir Mitch

        Typo!
        Fixed now.

  • Rusev Day

    OH noooooo!

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    That hair ….the real winner

  • Sir Mitch

    Woods doesn’t get enough credit for his in-ring work!

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Future WWE Hall of Famer, Karl Malone?

    • Ugh!

      • Sir Mitch

        Better him than Roodman!
        Besides…that tag match with DDP was actually pretty good for what it was.

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        Karl Malone & DDP vs. Hogan & Rodman wasn’t that bad.

        • I wasn’t impressed, but Hogan rarely impressed me. I actually watched that match fairly recently, and it wasn’t that good.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            Though being a fan of the Detroit Pistons, Karl Malone is not one my favorites.

          • For me it’s bringing in people who shouldn’t be in the ring. Malone really didn’t click, and Rodman is a tool.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            Rodman wasn’t a tool, when he played for the Detroit Pistons, but once he left Michigan, well his history speaks for himself.

          • The man is friends with Kim Jong-Un, that puts him in the tool shed.

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      But not oh idont know king kong bundy, demolition, road warriors, steiner bros, harlem heat, john tenta

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        The Road Warriors are in the WWE Hall of Fame.

        • LDB-The Good Doctor

          My bad on them.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            I don’t think Karl Malone should be in, but I could see the WWE putting him in.
            Though I’m not against celebrities being in. Like Mr. T (who’s in), Cyndi Lauper and Andy Kaufman.

  • Sir Mitch

    Liv Morgan still looks so out of place with Riott and Logan!

    • But I like it. She’s the perky blonde who looks the part, but isn’t that inside. And having all three looking too much alike would be bad. I love their distinct looks.

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Carmella is just gorgeous

    • Rusev Day

      that she is.

    • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

      F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Time for Irish fire

    • Rusev Day

      yup.

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    i like the Riot Squad tee. looks like something i would pick up at a concert

    • I so need that shirt for my collection.

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Wooooo

  • Rusev Day

    heres becky.

  • Sir Mitch
  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Is Ryder vs. Rawley happening tonight?

    • Sir Mitch

      Next week!

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    I would compliment becky but i know she is mitchs fav.

    • Sir Mitch

      She’s my Irish Rose!

    • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

      the man has good taste

      • Sir Mitch

        Thank you!

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    At last year’s Royal Rumble Baron Corbin eliminated Braun Strowman from the Royal Rumble. How different one year can be.

  • Sir Mitch

    Is it just me, or does Corbin look like a skinny-fat Samoa Joe close up?

    • Just wait for what I just wrote about him. I went OFF!

  • Rusev Day

    this wont end well.

  • Sir Mitch
    • Everyone should watch this video. I’m going to show hubby after SD is over.

  • Sir Mitch

    Bloody hell it’s quiet in here!

    • More than a normal Tuesday! Where is everyone else?

  • Rusev Day

    im here.

  • Sir Mitch

    Zayn went to the Flair school of heel selling!

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    what a caring guy KO is. checking to make sure the ref was okay and Shane just watched

  • Rusev Day

    wow!

  • Rusev Day

    mitch called. it sorta.

  • Sir Mitch

    Decent SD Live this week!
    See you for Wrestle Kingdom guys!

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    good SD.
    see y’all for Wrestle Kingdom 12
    goodnight everybody!!!

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    A handicap match for the WWE Championship, I believed that’s only happened one other time. Stone Cold vs. Undertaker and Kane at Breakdown ’98.

  • Rusev Day

    night.
