4 big mistakes that were seen in Smackdown this week
SmackDown: This week’s episode of WWE SmackDown has now ended. In this episode of SmackDown, the Roman Reigns vs LA Knight match was hyped tremendously. At the same time, a new match was announced for Crown Jewel 2023.
Additionally, Logan Paul appeared to further his feud with US Champion Rey Mysterio on the blue brand. This week’s episode of SmackDown was good but there were some mistakes in the show. In this article, we are going to mention 4 such big mistakes which were seen in this week’s episode of WWE SmackDown.
4- Booking Chelsea Green to fight a singles match in WWE SmackDown
After Chelsea Green’s argument with Shotzi on SmackDown this week, a singles match was booked between these two superstars. If we look at it, Chelsea is the Women’s Tag Team Champion, so it makes more sense for them to fight a tag team match. Let us tell you, Green lost to Shotzi in this singles match held in Blue Brand.
Women’s Tag Team Champions Chelsea Green & Piper Niven definitely got a chance to fight a tag team match on Raw this week but it was a non-title match. This is why Chelsea & Niven should have been booked to defend their Women’s Tag Team Titles in SmackDown this week. Let us tell you, the Women’s Tag Team Championship has not been defended since the title change on Raw on July 17.
3- Making US Champion Rey Mysterio look weak in WWE SmackDown
This week on WWE SmackDown, US Champion Rey Mysterio was keeping his eyes on the Street Profits vs Santos Escobar & Carlito match from backstage. During this time, Logan Paul came and attacked Ray. Let us tell you, the giant was defeated by a single punch given by Logan.
If we look at it, Rey Mysterio should not have been shown weak like this before the big match going to be held in Crown Jewel. Due to this attack on Mysterio, Carlito & Santos Escobar’s attention was diverted from the match and Carlito came backstage to help the US Champion. Taking advantage of this, Street Profits easily won the match by giving Santos their finisher.
2- Iyo Sky not present in the ring during Bianca Belair’s segment in WWE SmackDown
Bianca Blair’s in-ring segment was seen in this week’s episode of SmackDown. During this segment, Bianca announced that she is going to get the WWE Women’s Championship match at Crown Jewel 2023. In hindsight, Io Skye, being the current Women’s Champion, should have been present during this segment.
The presence of Io would have made this segment quite interesting. However, Sky was keeping an eye on this segment from backstage. Along with WWE Women’s Champion, Bayley and Dakota Kai were also not at all happy with the announcement made by Bianca Blair. Bianca has to fight a match against Bayley on SmackDown next week before facing Io Sky at Crown Jewel.
1- John Cena’s inability to compete with Solo Sikoa during the Brawl in WWE SmackDown
This week in WWE SmackDown, John Cena was seen giving a promo talking about the match going to be held against Solo Sequoia in Crown Jewel. Paul Heyman was also present with Cena during this segment. Soon, Sequoia came and attacked John fiercely.
The 16-time World Champion could not give Solo a fight at all during this brawl. After this, Enforcer defeated John Cena by giving him a Samoan spike. If we look at it, Cena has been shown to be less powerful during his current run in WWE compared to his previous runs and it was not right to show him weak once again this week.
