Yeah Christian isn't going to be the top guy any time soon and wasn't, don't expect too much from him.

 

But to Smackdown, how awesome was that contract signing?

 

Here's Big E's reaction on Twitter.

Proof that @kaitlynwwe is a violent thug: 1. Struck me without provocation 2. Wears fingerless gloves (for superior weapon gripping)

 

@bigelangston

Proof that @kaitlynwwe is a violent thug: 3. Wears combat boots (presumably to stomp on the pinky toes of young children)

 

@bigelangston

Proof that @kaitlynwwe is a violent thug: 4. After she struck that ref a few weeks ago, she found his mother's house & threw rocks at it.

 

@bigelangston

Proof that @kaitlynwwe is a violent thug: 5. Hair isn't dyed. She ripped the blonde out of a barista's head who took too long w/ her coffee.

 

@bigelangston

Proof that @kaitlynwwe is a violent thug: 6. That mesh top she wears was cut from a net she uses to illegally capture lobster.

 

@bigelangston

Proof that @kaitlynwwe is a violent thug: 7. No last name. Dropped it because she has more priors than Shawn Kemp has kids.

 

@bigelangston

If @kaitlynwwe has belittled, maimed, or robbed you, feel free to use the hashtag ‪#‎ProofThatKaitlynIsAViolentThug‬ to share your pain.

I thought the contract signing was the weakest part of the show. AJ and Kaitlyn both kinda suck when it comes to promos. Kaitlyn more so. AJ is just annoying and it always seems to me that she's trying to emulate Punk whenever she talks. The slap and spear were good, the rest was just bland and boring. The highlight was Teddy telling AJ, ain't nobody got time for that.

Actually I think they've dropped off a tad since the Shield have stopped having six-mans with Bryan every week. But still, good show.

 

Yeah, the Divas thing was good, but I felt it could have been better. I think the convoluted, unclear nature of the feud didn't help, because I couldn't understand why anything was happening. The weird "Kaitlyn bitches about other girls" thing was the weirdest. I think the angle was a good idea in theory, but they had zero idea how to get from point A to point B to point C. They are scribbling all over the page like a toddler.

 

The other problem is that the payoff to this kind of 'babyface is humiliated forever' angle is for the babyface to win in the end. But I don't get the feeling they would want AJ to drop the belt. So Kaitlyn is just going to look like a giant dick after this is over. It's been a terrible angle for her.

I think the lack of Shield this month is down to the respective PPV matches they've been given. Facing the Uso's does absolutely nothing for the Shield, they start off facing big names like Ryback and Cena and then this month we expect the Uso's to actually be a threat after doing virtually nothing for the past 2 years. It's a problem with the tag team division, yes we have credible tag champions but there's no one else in the tag division I'd consider credible in the slightest. So I think this was always going to be inevitable. Although I am sure that Dean Ambrose will help bring back the spotlight next month, I'm sure he'll get the money in the bank briefcase so I think that'll result in a lot, and even if he doesn't win I'm sure he'll be feuding with Christian for the U.S title regardless. I'd call this a passable transistional month for them, but I'm hopeful they have a lot lined up for them over the summer.

See, I'm looking at it the other way and that it does a metric f*ck-ton of good for the Usos to be facing The Shield.

 

You're looking at it like The Shield are stepping down rather than Jimmy & Jay are stepping up.

Well there is that respect, and I don't think the Uso's are bad at all and it's a good idea to build them. It depends where the Uso's go from here, do they get another title shot? Will they be used consistently if they lose? I am thinking, if the Uso's just give The Shield a match then continue doing nothing, it seems like a waste of a month for both sides. I know this is all hypothetical but it seems likely.

I feel the Usos won't win the titles, but it'll depend on how they fail. Losing a match isn't the end, it's how you go down in defeat that can make you.

 

Austin v Hart (both the Survivor Series and WM matches) immediately springs to mind, but a the match between John Morrison v Edge when the former was drafted is probably a more relevant example.

Well I guess you were right man, the Uso's went out and ended up having a really good match with the Shield, even got a "This is awesome" chant. And they got themselves on the main PPV as well sort of showing that they're not done with the Shield. Decent for all involved probably.
