WWE goes to Smoothie King Center in New Orleans for SmackDown LIVE February 19th. It is not possible that it is worse than the Cajundome, right?
Heads of poster
Miz took the fall Sunday night at Chamber of elimination as the best tag team in the world dropped the blue Belts of the men's teams to Usos *. He got caught. This happens (although it usually does not happen after you touch your finisher). Shane McMahon, Miz's partner and partner, was not there to save, because his big movements made him unable to neutralize him. So he was still in the ruins of an ad office with Jey Uso when Jimmy Uso broke through and pinned A-Lister. after an overwhelming crushing finale.
The future father of two children was heartbroken and took all the blame, excusing himself profusely in front of the camera and seemingly without result (unless a video dropped that I missed, I do not I'm not sure of WWE.com's recap that Shane sent Miz to Houston's house "because he was not going to blame himself for his loss." This is the prelude to a segment of their show tonight where Miz will tell McMahon again that he is sorry.
You do not have to be a former member of the WWE creative team to see that it will probably be a great moment in everything that is planned for these men to WrestleMania 35. Rumor has it that they are arguing against each other, and I could honestly see one or the other of both playing the role of the hero.
But, as unfortunate as his first babyface was, I think it should be Miz. He is ready.
We have crossed the threshold of fans who think that he does not deserve a leading role in the WWE, or that he is the worst wrestler in the world, or that all that people have thought of Mike Mizanin before 2015-16 (hard to pin down a moment when the public perception of reality turned into a wrestler has changed, but I think for the most part it was somewhere between the breakup of Mizdow and his league title Intercontinental after the split of the brand). He's not Daniel Bryan in the ring, but he's so good at all the rest of the job that he does not have to. And he is not bad either in fight, but not in capital.
Over the last year or so, Miz has slowly transformed her selfish gimmick, chasing heels, into a friendly support for fans. The introduction of Miz TV has become something that people anticipate rather than make fun of. "When my hand is up, your mouth is closing," we can now turn to people with whom he quarrels in addition to the crowd.
It could well be a fixture for a tighter turn, of course, and I do not exclude it. Shane O'Mac's dependent ring will still attract applause, and the McMahon family is currently in the lineup, so it's no wonder that Miz's "public apology" tonight is a trap. Be jealous of Shane NCIS: LA concert would certainly fit his heel gimmick.
But if they decide to give the Awesome One a chance to be run as the hero, to be attacked for being too sorry, they lost the belt a few days after announcing that his wife was expecting to have a second child, it would be a very good way to start. And I believe that Miz is ready to make it work in the long run this time.
The title scene
We are supposed to find out who WWE Champion Daniel Bryan will face March 10 Expressway pay-per-view (PPV) tonight. No matter who he is fighting in Cleveland, I have already registered with whom he should face April in New Jersey. We should also hear more here Kofi Kingston and his boys tonight.
There is no mention of Female Champion Asuka in the official preview. I'm running out of words on this subject, myself.
We have not seen R-Truth and the Title of the United States since he's won the Royal Rumble Fallout show. And he did not even receive a video package as cool as the Empress received a few weeks ago.
Holders of the women's title Sasha Banks & Bayley take their new straps everywhere. That will mean SmackDown at some point, but we do not know if they'll be here tonight. When they arrive, Fire & Desire will probably have the best case for a title.
* You do not know what's next for Jimmy & Jey … The bar? Heavy machinery? Maybe they will lose against NXT guys? Not having a clear direction is pretty much the same for blue brand champions, so they are in good company.
Other things to watch for:
– Despite the difficulty of finding time for brand owners or the series of NXT calls announced at the end of last year, WWE teases Smack down appearances by the four men who debuted on Gross last night.
– The race for the women's red title is a major event that takes time on Tuesday night. Ronda Rousey had a rare night away from Becky Lynch, the suspended / injured Rumble winner, and Charlotte Flair, her official WrestleMania official opponent, last night, but it looks like the Queen is heading tonight to the Chamber of elimination crutch attack she suffered at the hands of The Man
This is the Chamber of elimination Fallout show!
What will you look for SmackDown Live tonight?
