My thoughts -
I thought this episode of Smackdown was okay. It would’ve been a lot better if superstars like Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Randy Orton and John Cena were included. However, it’s understandable that these superstars were sent out to be on tour in Europe.  As much as I love the Bella Twins, Paige, Naomi and Natalya, it was good to see other divas involved in the division.  Cameron may not be a favorite but I am very interested in seeing more of her in the division, and I’m curious to see how the feud for the divas title will progress.  I really enjoyed the Miz-TV segment.  Standing up to the Miz and planting a kiss on Summer Rae’s lips made me a bigger fan of Damien Mizdow.  Good match at the end. I’m happy to see the fans being more behind Roman Reigns.  After all, he earned it after his Wrestlemania 31 match. – Lisa Williams
