HHH said he wanted to have plans in place for guys being called up, he never said they actually did. As Joe said, everything goes through Vince and we all know that if it's not the main guys then Vince doesn't care so no plans happen.

Listening to recent interviews from Jericho with Moxley and especially the Dustin one, it seems that Vince has checked out but still refuses to give up any control so we're stuck with shit until that happens, probably when he dies. Dustin and Jericho both flat out said talking about different things "when Vince cared". They said once they setup the way it is now with all these writers and guys around, he's still approachable but he's not right there throwing out ideas with everyone.

Whats the latest on Luke Harper? Maybe he is the guy knocking on Aleister Black's door. Probably not.

Last I heard was he asked for his release and they said no. And then still haven’t used him. Go figure.

Maybe Bischoff low key likes the guy and we’ll get to see him in action.

Owens felt like the Steen of old with his promo tonight. That’s exciting!

And Bryan vs Big E was a good match!

Well Smackdown is already off to a better start than Raw was last night!

Nakamura vs Balor was great! Smackdown had their own G1 tournament level match tonight!

I’m watching last night’s Smackdown. So far “Stone Cold” Kevin Owens stunned Shane McMahon. And Black and Cesaro had a good rematch with Black hitting a great Black Mass that had Cesaro’s mouthguard flying out of his mouth.

Three women’s matches tonight! All with their own storylines and feuds. I’m impressed. Smackdown actually pushing the women’s division. I almost wish they’d just have the women on Smackdown.

I really like how they set up Ember vs Bayley for the belt at Summerslam. Very different from the usual way they set up title matches.

Not for nothing, but the recent rebuild of Nakamura has been great. It’s how he should have been being used years ago, but I’m happy to finally see it happening. He’s easily one of the top heels on the brand now and the crowd is reacting.

It's only because Bischoff doesn't want Sonny Ono after him again.

That was a pretty odd end to Smackdown.

I liked it but I’m not sure where it’s going.

Smackdown did a far better job of hyping Summerslam than Raw did. I’m actually far more excited for the event on Sunday now than I was after Raw.

I'm only half way through Smackdown and at this rate I'm just going to assume Luke Harper is the attacker of Roman Reigns.

Reigns vs Buddy Murphy was great! I hope WWE sees what they have with Murphy after a performance like that. He’s one of the best wrestlers on the roster. This deserves to be his coming out.

I like the pairing of Sami Zayn and Nakamura but not if it means another meaningless Miz IC title reign.
