• Reason Behind Fans In Attendance Being Disappointed At This Week’s SmackDown

A fan in attendance for this week’s SmackDown sent the following:

“Many left disappointed for a number of reasons. The main complaint I heard walking out were from fans of Roman Reigns, Finn Balor and the Women’s roster. There was no appearance from Roman or Finn and there wasn’t one women’s match.

When Shane McMahon gave The Miz 10 seconds to pick a tag team partner to take on Drew McIntyre & Elias, which ended up being R-Truth, people were disappointed that it wasn’t Roman Reigns, because they had just been talking about Reigns and showing footage of him beating Shane a night ago at RAW.

The dark main event, which was announced before SmackDown went off the air was Dolph Ziggler vs. Kofi Kingston. Neither did much of anything and after about eight minutes, you could see the double count-out coming from a mile away.

Many people booed because it was such a half-assed effort by two guys who always seem to give so much to their fans. By the time Ziggler and Kingston got into the ring at about 7:45 local time, there was maybe 1/3 of the crowd still there. Most left midway through 205 Live, which was not received well.”
