I know I’ve been a bit absent with the round-ups of late, but let’s get stuck into today!
Welcome to this week’s SmackDown Live! Last week, James Ellsworth one hundred percent legitimately and without any sort of help whatsoever defeated WWE World Champion AJ Styles, so tonight the title is on the line. God, I love wrestling. This week’s recap has been done under awkward circumstances, so we’ll be easing back on the play-by-play, but we’ll be sure to enjoy ourselves nonetheless!
Don’t the PPVs sneak up on you these days? It’s very nearly time for our second SmackDown Live exclusive PPV! No Mercy is right around the corner and things have been heating up amongst the SmackDown roster in the build-up. Let’s get to our predictions!

We open this week’s SmackDown Live with Daniel Bryan already in the ring and a yes chant full in force. You know, this week I had a dream that SmackDown would open with talent in the ring. Granted, in my dream it was talent that you’d never expect to start the show, but you know what dreams are like.
Fresh off the SmackDown Live exclusive PPV, it’s this week’s round-up!
Welcome to SmackDown Live! This being the first show after the first SmackDown Live exclusive PPV, we open with a recap of the important events of Backlash. Shane and Daniel took centre stage to start us off, Becky became champion, Miz retained, Kane beat up Bray Wyatt, Slater and Rhyno got the championships and Slater earned his contract, and AJ became our new champion.
Short recap for time today, guys, work’s getting busy, and the joy that is the summer holidays is already a distant memory. Thankfully, we’ve got some glorious art by Sora to fill the spaces! Eveyrthing is also going to be in a weird order.
Sora gives us another week of magic and wonder, starting with Seth Rollins’ inept summoning skills, and sorting out whether Triple H really exists or not!
Raw comes to us live from Detroit tonight, and we’ve already got Instagram-fuelled rumours that Alicia Fox might be back – a woman who isn’t milk pale and/or blonde? Get out of here.
We’re starting with a battle royal for The Miz’s IC title, because apparently that’s the level we’re putting the IC title at. I’m literally agog.
