Title: WWE Struggles to Keep SmackDown Engaging, Leaning on Family Drama of Roman Reigns vs. Jey Uso
The latest episode of SmackDown, WWE’s flagship television show, has left fans questioning the creative decisions made by the writers. With the rest of the program falling flat, the ongoing family drama between Roman Reigns and Jey Uso has become the saving grace.
Fans have expressed concerns about the booking decisions for several prominent wrestlers, including LA Knight, Asuka, Charlotte Flair, Bianca Belair, Austin Theory, Santos Escobar, Karrion Kross, and AJ Styles. Many are beginning to question the direction the show is taking with these beloved superstars.
One notable issue on SmackDown is the overcrowded midcard division. With an abundance of talent vying for screen time, it has become challenging for the writers to properly showcase all the talent. This has resulted in numerous underutilized superstars, leaving fans longing for more compelling storylines and matches.
However, amidst the struggles, one storyline that has managed to bring excitement to the show is the ongoing Bloodline angle. The intense family dynamics between Roman Reigns, Jey Uso, and their cousin Jimmy Uso has captivated audiences and has become a highlight of SmackDown.
WWE did succeed in elevating a former NXT star by allowing him to mix with the biggest names on the show. This strategic move has helped rejuvenate interest in the show, as fans eagerly anticipate the potential collision between this rising star and established veterans.
Unfortunately, the penultimate episode of SmackDown leading up to SummerSlam left much to be desired. While the Roman Reigns-Jey Uso storyline remained intriguing, the overall episode failed to deliver exceptional moments that fans have come to expect from the show.
Here are some of the highlights and lowlights from the recent episode of SmackDown. Despite the overall lackluster nature of the show, the captivating family drama and some key segments managed to salvage the viewing experience.
As fans eagerly await the upcoming SummerSlam event, there is hope that WWE will address the concerns raised by fans and deliver a more engaging and captivating SmackDown in the future.
