Hello, WNW people, Mitch “Big M” Adams here, and it is my pleasure to welcome you to The Smackdown Breakdown. Let's dig into what happened this week on Smackdown Live, shall we? Backstage segment: Ambrose & Ellsworth > B Dean handing James his very own WWE Shop T-shirt (I’d buy it) was just magic. Mauro’s “Chinderella story” line made me shake my head a little, but Dean, as usual, was brilliant. So it balances out enough for it to be graded B. In-Ring Segment: Orton & Wyatt > B+ Randy seemed a little uncomfortable on the microphone here if I'm […]

I had my monthly medieval meeting this evening, so this is later than I wanted it to be, so I'm going to jump right in. I truly believe that Mitch 'Big M' is the only person I know who l really doesn't like New Day, and since he reviews SmackDown, he doesn't get a chance to get it out of his system. So, this week, I offered him the New Day segment and match. I'm putting in the disclaimer that whatever he writes is not the views of me, Richard Gray, or WNW, so please react accordingly. And, look at […]
