I totally missed SD! due to work. Any chance some screen caps are available of this new look? I'd be very grateful.

The opening credits are a lot less flashy. mostly in Black and white showing the wrestlers prepping for matches and performing. The new song, if im not mistaken(I probably am) sounds like its performed by John Cena.

I don't think it's performed by John Cena... The voice is different. It's more "black" not to put finer point on it ;).

I like the new opening theme, it makes Smackdown! sound like a more serious wrestling show now.

I liked the new opening song and graphics. Yes, the video package was a lot less slickly produced. But it was time for a change. The new song is hip-hop, as that is the genre replacing hard rock these days (unfortunatley). The new graphics are a bunch of spikes, making me think that I was watching the Backlash PPV all night.

The font is a little harder to read on the wrestler's entrances. The spike effect is okay, but it might get a little cumbersome in some shot.

The biggest travesty is that they changed the font on the Mattitude Media Player. Is nothing sacred?

I was going to say something about that font thing too! Seriously, SPIKES won't change the fact that this Mr. America stuff as cute as it is, is overshadowing almost everything here. Not good!

The opening video kicks ass but the theme song needs some work. It reminds me of the "Platinum" theme song for some reason. I hope they spruce it up abit. It just seems like it's lacking some "oomph". But the vid is well produced. Great shots. I downloaded it this morning actually and there's this one cool sequence where Chavo morphs into Eddie.

I don't dig the spikes too much and i'm bummed the little name graphics that appear when a wrestler comes out no longer has the titantron within the graphic. that was pretty fly.

When I first saw the opening, I thought it looked like a UPN commerical for SmackDown. Probably becuase of the Platinum commericals.

I noticed the Chavo morphing into Eddie bit on the second viewing of the video. I take back what I said about it not being slickly (is that a word?) produced.

I liked the new opening, it was very hip BUT then they follow it up with two hours of Vince, Hogan, and Piper.

One change I'd make with the opening is with that last shot of Kurt Angle, I'd dub in his line from his comeback commercial where he says, "This is my life."
