Tonight, on the With Spandex WWE Smackdown Live open discussion thread for November 1, 2016:
Tonight on “Miz TV,” Daniel Bryan will discuss who will be representing SmackDown LIVE at Survivor Series. Plus, following an impulsive “No Chin Music” on “The Champ that Runs the Camp,” there is no telling how The Lunatic Fringe will choose to deal with James Ellsworth. — via WWE.com
Our five-point preview:
1. Last week, Randy Orton “joined” the Wyatt Family more or less, and live events have had him posing after matches with Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper. This ruse will probably continue until Survivor Series, when Randy reveals he never REALLY joined them and it was MIND GAMES ALL ALONG and then everyone groans, because no shit, Sherlock.
2. The tag team elimination match for Survivor Series still needs to get some slots filled on the Smackdown side, and supposedly the Headbangers are back. Congratulations to whomever is fighting the Headbangers this week!
3. To that end, Daniel Bryan is also going to possibly be announcing the full men’s Smackdown team for Survivor Series on Miz TV. That is, if he can manage to get two sentences out before Miz absolutely ethers Daniel’s trifling, retired, condescending ass again. Please, Miz, please.
4. Dean Ambrose is angry at James Ellsworth costing him a No. 1 contendership last week. Will he just beat the everloving crap out of the poor chinless boy (who is probably older than him)? That would be the most effective heel turn since Seth Rollins.
5. Curt Hawkins still hasn’t debuted. So that’s a thing.
