WRESTLING RECAP: Breaking down WWE Smackdown from 06/04/15

( - With the Elimination Chamber (EC) Pay Per View (PPV) a memory, and now everyone looking towards the new PPV, Money in the Bank (MitB), I know these shows have to build momentum.  This SmackDown episode was a crowd pleasing delight.

Some things I still need to happen in the WWE Universe:

  1. Bring back the Cruiser Weight Division
  2. Make all the matches mean something to some sort of belt or rivalry.  
  3. Show more of the roster.  You guys recycle the same talent too much.
  4. You may wish to consider bringing the Diva's division full circle and have them with Tag Title belts, lightweight belts, etc.
  5. The Tag Team Division is starting to look better than the singles division.  Get more people graduated from NXT and get that division showcased more.

Here are the highlights of the show:
