Smackdown TV report for 12/03/2015

Smackdown

Following a very impeding Raw, storyline-wise, I really hope Smackdown! is much better and explains some of them, particularly Lana and Rusev. Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, and The Usos are all still getting their championship matches at Tables, Ladders, and Chairs (again, no continuity), so what will they or their opponents have to say? Tyler...

Monday Night Raw TV report for 10/26/2015

Raw

“Hell” ended just over 24-hours ago, but honestly, there wasn’t much “hell” going on. Straight-up, it was a lacklustre Pay-Per-View/Network Show that you would see on a weekly basis of Raw. The only two good happenings were one SHOCKING return and the main-event match itself; neither of which I will spoil for those who have not saw...
