WRESTLING RECAP: Breaking down WWE SmackDown from 09/24/15

( - The Night of Champions (NOC) Pay Per View (PPV) was 4 days ago, and that was followed up by a good versus evil, Jekyll versus Hyde scenario with Kane that played out on RAW.  I felt disappointed that on RAW, nothing was mentioned on the condition of Sting.  This SmackDown left me disappointed because nothing was said about what exactly happened to the World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins, when he was drugged through a hole in the ring by Demon Kane. This episode of SmackDown was just a normal showing.   

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:

Air Date: Thursday, September 24, 2015
Location: Corpus Christi, TX
Commentators:  Booker T, Rich Brennan and Jerry "The King" Lawler
