Smackdown as of Late

I don't know if it's just me. But I've started to get bored watching SD! I much prefer Raw! The only possible reason I can think of watching SD! is for Eddie Guerrero or Rey Mysterio. Every episode (is that the right word?) is a few bad matches, with Eddie and Cena carrying the show. I am currently enjoying the Dupree scenarios, but the GAA was a total waste of time, and it was obvious what was going to happen. I think we need to get some new writers. I never thought I would hear myself say this, but SD! is the minor leagues. (I hate agreeing with Booker, what a creep!) Anyone else think the same thing?

Currently SmackDown probably is going through a bad patch, I'll agree. Brock leaving, Angle injured, Big Show leaving, Edge to Raw, it seems a stable of established stars are walking out on SD.

 

However John Cena is the biggest character is WWE right now, Eddie gets bigger crowd pops than Benoit, Rey Mysterio is the most exciting high-flier, RVD seems to be slowly becoming more intense (which is a good thing), and with my two main guys Jindrak and Dupree, as well as the ever-impressive Charlie Haas, SD has the basis for a formidable future.

 

The WWE writers have got to get it right, though (sorry about the pun). Give it until SummerSlam and you'll probably find that SD will have improved greatly, once everyone is settled and confident with their new roles.

 

Cheers!

Indeed - Smackdown is becoming somewhat boring these last few weeks.

 

With the emphasis shifting to Bradshaw and Booker T, and not as effectively as one would think, the show has become a little slower paced, and sanitised.

 

The following could also be attributed to the dillemma.

 

- Only a handful of TRUE Main Eventers. { Show, Bradshaw, Cena, Guererro... }

- The Dudleyz don't seem to use the tables anymore, which kinda makes them duller than ever.

- RVD looks a tad, uhh, over-zealous to be proud of Smackdown. The truth is, he was doing well, if not better, on Raw.

- Renee Dupree. Rico. BLEH...sickbag, please. Oo; These guys are awful, in-ring AND in character.

- Currently no memorable factions. Maybe better when the ministry re-shows, but not good enough right now.

- TOO MANY GM CHANGES, and not enough decent ideas to fuel them.

 

Stop me if I'm wrong...^^;

Dupree's character and in-ring ability is not awful by any means. Dupree has a lot of potential and a good gimmick which is giving him a lot of heat from the crowd. The fifi segemt this past week was rather amusing, it's just a shame he did not wrestle.

 

I'm glad they're using Dupree in singles competition and should push him up a level, he could be a promising main-eventer IMO...

He may have potential but he's still very green. He needs to be nurtured slowly.

 

I never said he didn't, but that potential could go far, and probably will. Dupree could me a promising main-eventer in the future, not right now :xyx The WWE need to work on him a lot more if anything promising is going to come of him...

Dupree should have no troubles becoming a solid main-eventer in due time. Maybe not attaining the heights of a Rock, Hulk or Stone Cold but a decent Big Show, Brock, HHH level kind-of-guy. He needs to lose Fifi, though, that is a terrible gimmick. Currently it's quite humerous but he should lose the pooch swiftly.

 

Jindrak, on the other hand, with the right booking and writing, could be a top, top star. Seriously. This guy has impressed me greatly.

 

Cheers!

I quite agree. I think Dupree is a good wrestler, and would be a lot more popular if he dropped the whole French thing, you know, flag and poodle. You can be proud of you're country without rubbing it in. I hope SD! does get better. They have a lot of talent which they aren't using to their full potential. Eddie Guerrero should start a faction, like The Filthy Animals once again.
