    Sorry we are late today. Phil is a dummy and forgot about the news video this morning so we had to push it back an hour! Meanwhile, what did you all think of SmackDown?

      I'm sorry, but you I think you completely missed the point of Daniel Bryan not making the announcement. It was supposed to piss you off. He said nothing after that build up and made you wait. "What was he going to say?" "I don't know, but he said he was going to tell us and that makes me mad." Come on it is a heel tactic we have seen a million times before. Even if it isn't anything big, Daniel Bryan still did his job well.

      Other than the Cesaro match, Orton win a really bad episode of Smackdown. I hate this persona that is being forced on to Kevin Owens when him being himself is way more authentic and he is decent on the microphone without pretending to be a combination of stone cold and punk. I am sorry the first time the feud with Vince and Stone cold will always be the best, everything else is second rate, same with the whole authority thing a few years back and now this. Actually this is worse than even the authority. I can see why Dean Ambrose aka John Moxley left WWE. I wonder if Finn Balor will stay with WWE or leave, he could do so much better in other brands.

    Don't know why you Downed Shane cutting the mic at the start, it's a part of his maniacal control. He stated immediately after that it was a travesty the WWE champ's mic got cut, and they'd look into it straight away.

    I think Simon has a crush on Liv Morgan, lol. He started and ended the video with shots of her.

    Simon's rant with the women's tag team division was justifiable and I'm an IIconics stan. I really hope this leads to a Summerslam match with the Kabuki Warriors winning and then defending the titles all over NXT,UK and on PPVs,the titles need a little "pick me up"

    I saw the Shane/KO feud coming once Owens started using the Stunner. I am down for the angle, but KO doesn't need to use the Stunner to get over. He could have used something else (just not the Pop-Up Powerbomb

    Speaking of nostalgia, I'm waiting for WWE to Dolph Ziggler to reform DX...

    It's a shame what's happening with Cesaro and Samoa Joe. Two of their best wrestlers always losing. It's pretty lame. And Joe has the charisma and mic skills Cesaro doesn't. So, what's the excuse for not pushing him to the moon?

    I tried watching- they tricked me into believing the women's tag team title match was going to be worth watching- and I just ended up turning off the tv out of frustration.

    New Day is so freakin horrible. When your friend who isn't into wrestling is over, you're praying that the New Gay doesn't come out. Because they're just embarrassing. Then your buddy is like "So this is why you're always busy on Mondays? Cuz you gotta be sure to catch these three queers gyrating & talking about touching tips?" Only in this LGBTQPWTF day & age would this shit get over as a babyface persona. It's disgusting.

    The one match which I would like to see is Aleister Black vs, Shinsuke Nakamura, I think that would be an excellent match, even with the styles mainly being striking based. It is a match I want to see.

    Randy is responsible for Kofi being buried out of the title picture to begin with so it would be fitting for them to feud.

    I'm honestly sick of WWE fucking over Cesaro for no reason; he doesn't look any stronger in these small feuds and he's just jobbing out to other "high-rising" stars. I would prefer Cesaro gets the push he deserves and becomes a main event champion for once.

      Only AEW gets shooted on for unprotected head shots I guess lmao. Even though it wasn't uprotected lmao. That guitar shot was though.

    I bet they are going to drag this out so they can get people to tune in like they did with Aleister Black. Next week he will just about to make his announcement again, something will happen and he will not make the announcement then the WWE will say tune in the following week to see what Daniel Bryan's plans are.

    The next time there's an episode of "what went down" you should just periodically cut to Simon doing unenthusiastic reenactments of each scene. That phone call was the best.

    I think that Aleister and Cesaro agreed to punch each other as hard as they can without actually knoking each other out because they are the some of the few that really make me belive tht they are hitting each other for real
