Re: 09/10 Smackdown Live Thread
Raw was the vastly superior show this week. 80% of Smackdown just felt phoned in.
Taker's appearance meant nothing. Austin interacted with a group of guys to both open and close Raw, yet they just booked Taker to say some generic crap about MSG and then chokeslam Zayn. Yawn.
You can't tell me they couldn't have booked Taker for a match. Even a tag match. Nakamura could've ran in and then Miz could've made the save, leading to a tag match between all four. All Taker would have to do was stand on the apron and then get the hot tag to hand out a chokeslam and Tombstone for the win. At least then they could've hyped it as "Taker returns to the ring at MSG!" or something.
Just a very half-assed show. Didn't look great heading into a PPV.
