  • Corbin is definitely rich idk how anyone can feel sorry for a rich person portraying a poor person on a show. Corbin wouldn't know how to be poor. It's a brown down from me. It's insulting.

  • Can we do something else with the women’s titles? It’s always Charlotte or Sasha in the title picture. Sasha is so overrated and there are others more worthy of the spotlight right now.

  • How come no one is pointing out that Cena was completely wrong. Rock and Stone Cold DID change their gimmicks more than a few times, and both had pretty great heel runs... and that's not even to bring up Hogan. Roman was right again.

  • WWE needs to release Jeff Hardy so Willow can show up at AEW..

  • You know what I'm really diggin about Raw AND Smackdown right now? Rotating challengers for the big titles. Remember back in the day when there was a new challenger for almost every pay-per-view? Kept the title picture fresh and slightly less predictable, and it seems like were going that way again. I mean, Xavier Woods got a title shot. Cesaro. These guys wouldn't have even had a chance at a chance just over a year ago.....good stuff.

  • I find i like smackdown more because the commentary is better. Raw has some good stuff on it but the commentary lacks

  • Why didn't you mention the "Simon give me a down" sign?? Did I dream it I'm sure it was a thing. Made me all warm and fuzzy in my tum tum.

  • Only john cena can do that. Bet it was his shitty idea.

  • WWE f@cked over Finn again. No disrespect to the Roman/Cena match, but it was an awful c@ck-tease. Finn deserves better.

    Ryan GilliganRyan Gilliganหลายเดือนก่อน
  • I find the lack of Tony Storm disturbing

  • I somehow feel if Raw had done that with the contract signing it would get a down and then they would say this is raw is bad but because it was on sd its ok and gets an up

  • Didn’t they do this HBK super kicked Benoit, making it a triple threat match?

  • it's just nice to hear us talking about John Cena weekly again

  • Bianca has fallen into stupid babyface territory. A five year old could see the outcome of her alliance with Sasha. Just once could a babyface not be so gullible? Rhetorical question, this is WWE.

    Michel NewcombMichel Newcombหลายเดือนก่อน
  • I fast forwarded through most of it. I kinda like more wrestling in my wrestling shows.

  • I don’t know why they made it look like Finn balor was going to challenge for the universal championship, I thought it was going to be a triple threat , it’s official it’s reigns defending the title against cena but it’s probably going to be balor vs Corbin at summer slam

    Michael SkatharoudisMichael Skatharoudisหลายเดือนก่อน
  • Reggie is a breath of fresh air. I like him. WWE don't ruin him. I think the Rock has changed/switched up his character. I remember Corporate Rock and Hollywood Rock. I really hated Hollywood Rock. I guess it wasn't a change like Undertaker going Biker. The women's tag team match was delightfully good👍. Simon, you are awesome 👌.

  • Sasha return was class and Sasha heel turn was epic

    Gary ParkinGary Parkinหลายเดือนก่อน
  • Wow this is the dumbest thing they could do to a returning Finn Balor, Cena making him look like a third rate wrestler, WWE continuing to 'show' that Cena doesn't 'overshadow' other wrestlers.... fucking stupid

    Illidan isdeadIllidan isdeadหลายเดือนก่อน
  • If what baron was doin with contract was wrong then what cena did how can it be right.can someone explain this is called hypocrasy isnt it

  • WWE is soooo boring. Now wonder people jump to AEW

  • Reggie is really athletic and WWE could make something out of him and I like that the 24/7 title, as stupid as it is, is actually being defended in matches now. But I don't like that they put Chad Gable in such a match and that they end it in a DQ. This Smackdown was disappointing compared to last week, but it was still entertaining and cool that Sasha Banks has returned.

  • I think this is an opportunity for Finn to turn heel

  • Wait so what happened to Balor I thought that was gonna be the match

  • Sasha Banks is great and I'm glad she's back. She brings a unique presence and Star Power. Hope she is the new Champion.

  • Simon May say he’s the bald A hole, but he’s the absolute best at wrestling commentary and reactions

  • this is the first time I feel bored for Ups & down SM*, AEW THANK YOU !

  • Simon Mick Foley said that anyone from any show can challenge for the 24/7 title so RAW, Smackdown, NXT, and 205 Live so just to give some recap. Keep up the good work Simon and stay a Positive Pete. 👍

  • It just sounded like they just said: "Alright John, just go out there and bury Roman verbally."

  • Everyone had to see Sasha turn on Bianca, its what she does best and we love her for it. Ready for this rematch want the belt on The Boss!!!

  • nothing that involves cena is good , be he is the heel of the feud

  • Was I the only one who saw CEWA written the contract? 🤔

    Lorenzo LorenzoLorenzo Lorenzoหลายเดือนก่อน
  • 5:30 I think I remember Mick Foley saying that the title would be defended on All brands when he introduced the 24/7 championship. So the 24/7 champion just might be able to show up on whatever brand he wants. 🤔

  • Baron Corbin trying to sign the contract was stupid, yes, but wasn't that how Shawn Michaels got inserted into the match with HHH/Benoit? Benoit won the Rumble then I remember Shawn superkicking him then signing the contract making the 3 way we got at Mania.

  • I want storm to be the one to beat Bianca

    Ra JeRa Jeหลายเดือนก่อน
  • Pretty sure that's how HBK worked his way into that WM match with Benoit/HHH. Kicked Benoit and signed it in his place

    Riley KRiley Kหลายเดือนก่อน
  • I didn't liked Cena and Roman set up for the title. Looked childish and not logic. Sasha and Bianca set up for the title as example was perfect.

  • You do have to admit that that contract signing was the most creative 1 yet

    Manuel SalasManuel Salasหลายเดือนก่อน
  • I think Dominic should kinda turn on Rey over the rookie stuff. Just shove him a couple of times, then come out in version of a Rey Mysterio attire with a mask and start winning.

    phayro entphayro entหลายเดือนก่อน
  • Simon sold me on the contract. I didn’t think about pierce feelings having a say in the outcome.

  • Big E and Apollo have fought every smackdown since before Mania.

    Jordan MajorJordan Majorหลายเดือนก่อน
  • So basically, they screwed Finn again. I'm waiting for Finn to get the Braun and Bray treatment from WWE

    • With how much of a resurgence the Bullet Club is getting recently, at least in the states, maybe some people are making long term plans betting on if Finn gets put in the next series of releases?

      Arashi TendouArashi Tendouหลายเดือนก่อน
  • If John is sticking around for a bit after SummerSlam I can see Finn costing Cena the title match for taking his opportunity. I'd love a Cena/Balor feud, yes plz!

  • Woooaaaahhhh, what Simon described with Edge is completely different from what was broadcasted in my region. Rollins jumped Edge during his entrance and there was no commercial. It was awesome
