WRESTLING RECAP: Breaking down WWE SmackDown from 09/17/15

( - The Night of Champions (NOC) Pay Per View (PPV) is only a few days away, and outside of the Heavyweight/U.S. Champion, there isn't any truly meaningful matches with any true significance.  This episode of SmackDown, was one of the better episodes of wrestling so close to a PPV, but still a normal showing.  The only real question mark now is who will join Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns to face the Wyatt Family at NOC. 

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:
