Before and after. This week’s SmackDown Live may or may not have been your cup of tea. There was some good stuff here and there while most of the show was spent setting up this Friday’s Greatest Royal Rumble. The card is almost entirely set up already but now we had some more things built up before we got to Friday. There was also some advancement for the upcoming Backlash card. However, some more stuff also took place before and after the show went on the air.
Hint: pancakes were involved.
Opinion: You don’t often see a big match like that before the show so hopefully there’s a chance that we’ll be seeing the match again soon. The two teams had some good matches back when the teams were on Monday Night Raw about a year and a half ago and there’s no reason to believe they can’t do it again. Hardy vs. Miz could be a good match as well, though it wouldn’t shock me if their next title match was for the Intercontinental Title instead of the United States Title.
