The latest episode of WWE SmackDown Live took place in New Orleans, Louisiana on Tuesday, February 19. Here is a recap of what happened on the show…
Opening segment: Shane McMahon and The Miz
Summary: Shane McMahon announced that Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Aleister Black and Ricochet will be on SmackDown Live. The Miz, more serious than ever, interrupted and said he hasn’t slept since losing the tag titles, admitting that he “used” Shane so that his own dad could feel the same way Vince feels about Shane. He requested that Shane uses his authority power to book a tag title rematch. The Usos appeared and described Miz as a “joke, loser, failure, fraud and wannabe A-Lister with C-List skills”. Shane replied, “You do not disrespect my partner like that, ya dig?” before announcing the rematch for Fastlane, which takes place in Miz’s hometown of Cleveland, Ohio.
Verdict: I don’t care how ridiculous this storyline gets (Shane said “ya dig”?!?!?), these four guys are too entertaining for me to say anything negative. Roll on the rematch and inevitable Miz-Shane split.
