PPV Rehash: Elimination Chamber 2017

Hello and welcome to Elimination Chamber! It’s the last SmackDown Live PPV before WrestleMania, as Renee Young reminds us, so it’s an important show. When we cut to the panel, I’m immediately confused; we’ve got Renee, Booker T, Sam Roberts and Carmella. It’s an interesting and unexpected combination of experts, but we cut almost immediately to the social media lounge with Dasha Fuentes, so I have little time to wonder too much about it. Now, instead, I’m pleasantly surprised that they actually lead with her name, so I don’t have to fret that I’m getting it wrong.

Rehash: SmackDown Live 18th October ’16 – Denver, CO

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!

Rehash: SmackDown Live 27th September ’16 – Cleveland, OH

Welcome to SmackDown Live! We’re two weeks out from No Mercy now, and we open the show with Randy Orton’s music hitting and the Apex Predator himself slowly making his way to the ring. He’s wearing a shirt, which perpetually disappoints me, but the crowd doesn’t seem to mind that or the recent racism on Twitter (am I allowed to mention that?) as they break out in a “Randy!” chant. He takes the mic and explains that he understands Bray Wyatt a lot deeper than people might think; Bray Wyatt plays mind games with people because he is afraid of them.

Hey, wrestling fans, it’s another month and it’s time for another lot of PPV predictions! This month it’s SummerSlam, and dear god is it a long one –  in total, including pre-show, it’s five hours of wrestling, so without any more preamble, here are my predictions for what goes down at SummerSlam 2016 and why.
