    KO should get Brains Strowman as a lawyer. Or Irwin R. Shyster

    Will this mean Ups & Downs on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday?

    I kind of liked Kevin Owens' part of the show. He spoke crystal clear without even putting his hands on McMahon. David Otunga's return as a lawyer? Yes, please. 🤣 Wouldn't it be funny if, at the Lesnar vs Kofi's match for the championship, the referee rings the bell, Lesnar F5's instantly Kingston, and wins the belt in record time? Give it 5 seconds, awesome! I always watch your videos, Simon Miller, I learn English, and after watching the Raw and SmackDown, I click for the Ups and Downs. You're so funny! Until next week!

    I have not liked how Smackdown has ended these last couple of weeks. Not even real match endings. Just balonga.

    Here's the plan: Bludgeon Bros. v. Roman and Bryan outcome Roman and Bryan lose! Bryan of course blames Roman and Roman tells him to shove it. Ta-daa Roman v. Bryan and Bludgeon Bros. look good.

  • mastertimb

    Shane is going to compromise before this gets to court. Kevin Owens will get a stipulation on a match that Shane will quit if KO can beat him. This is a boring and unnecessarily circuitous way of getting to that point, but welcome to WWE in 2019.

    So they’re going to have Brock Lesnar win the WWE Championship, not defend it at Hell In A Cell, then for the 3rd year in a row show up at Survivor Series as Champion

  • Jessicayskull

    Can I just point out that both Raw and Smackdown didn't have a talk show this week! I find that shocking honestly.

    I wanted Daniel Bryan to be a heel longer. He was killing it.

    the only way wwe book babyfaces in 2019: let them get beaten up over and over again because sympathy pop!

    What they're doing with Brock and KO is a complete joke. Not to mention the continuous 50/50 booking. Thank you for NXT and AEW wrestling Gods 🙌🏽

    im legit surprised wwe didn't just brush gable aside. Im happy I was wrong about this one.

  • Dennis Savarese jr

    They using a non physical route to write Shane off... it's obvious. Owens beat him physically and Shane still there. It's psychology 101

  • WaywardGun

    I found myself really laughing at the line "I decided to hit your where it hurts- your wallet", but again that speaks more for Kevin's ability to make anything work. My guess is this ends with Shane having to re-hire Kev, getting the beating he deserves but having the "last laugh" by drafting him to NXT.

  • Xhumed

    He *did* beat Shane in the ring. He's playing him at his own game. Simon. You bald asshole. (Jk, love you buddy, but you are wrong on this point.)

    WWE is advertising Roman Reigns vs Daniel Bryan for Aussie super show down, so you are probably right Simon Miller. Even if card subject to change applies. @simonmiller

    I HATE DQ's and I HATE roll-up pins!!! STOP IT, WWE!!! Or don't. I'm liking AEW way better anyway, because they don't have stupid stuff like that. :-)

    I think Kevin Owen and Shane McMahon will be their respective team captains in Survivor Series. So their story will continue will then.

    It’s kinda low key cool to see Heyman and Brock back on Smackdown it’s like they meant to be in between those blue ropes * btw I was laughing so hard when Rowan and Harper were beating up everyone especially scoop slamming those security 😂

  • John Roberts

    Why do they insist on trotting out that waste of space Lesnar?

  • Misguided Key

    Everybody has to come back and like my comment when my prediction comes true. The Fiend will lose to Rollins due to Rowan and Harper running in to attack Bray Wyatt. This will set up The Fiend vs Harper/Roawn. Which will be amazing given the history. You’ll get Reigns Vs Bryan eventually but this is the best way to get there.

    Oh come on Simon you think a wrestling match will settle this? No this is realistic Kevin has a legitimate case and you're going to down it because you want to see them settle that in the ring when one of them was fired? That's a down for you my friend.

    So, they made Sasha heel intro badass but watered it down afterwards? Yeah, Sasha needs to go to AEW where she would be appreciated and escape the dreaded intro of Michael Cole's, "IT'S BOSS TIME"! That's what's best for business!

  • Maz2bi

    Let Brock win the title. Kofi can go back to his new day throwing pan cakes. Wait for Bobby Lashley to return and challenge Lesnar!

  • BeezWax1968

    1/2 hour of beating on Xavier Woods' knee? DOWN!!!

  • J.A.C

    WWE: We know how much you loved Lesnar as Universal champ and never showing up or really brining anything to the title.. .well guess what!!! We're going to have him do the same in Smackdown with the WWE title!!
