6) Something to make the tag title match seem less like Hardys vs. Dudleys and AGD vs. APA. Give me some Hardys vs. AGD, Hardys vs. APA, and Dudleys vs AGD.
You're in a desert, walking along in the sand when all of a sudden you look down and see a tortoise. It's crawling towards you. You reach down and flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over. But it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping.
Smackdown is in my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio at Gund Arena. I'm stuck in Finals Week here at OU down in Athens. I'm praying the hometown crowd can do their job and give some voice to the cries I've heard here. Dead silence for Steffo would be a really nice start. You know, they say there is a difference between traditional "heel heat" and "Bossman heat." Hopefully, the home crowd will be able to deliver a nice dose of "Bossman heat" to a few worthy recipients (you can fill in the blanks on that one..)
Then again, they had the final Raw before WM at Gund last year and the people of C-town cheered for Buff Bagwell when Vince conducted his "WCW straw poll" in the ring. Shit, that doesn't bode well for tonight at all...
Minus Jericho and Heyman/Cena, this show was just there. I am not sold on NXT showcases, because eventually they will hit a perfect storm of shit crowd and green workers. It worked tonight, not sure if it will work that long.
