The Best And Worst Of WWE Smackdown Live 12/25/18: Have Rusev A Merry Little Christmas

WWE Smackdown Live

Previously on the Best and Worst of WWE Smackdown Live: We entered a brave new era of WWE by putting FOUR McMahons in charge of Smackdown instead of one, and sent Paige to live on a nice farm upstate where she’ll have lots of room to run around. Also, Mustafa Ali pinned WWE Champion Daniel Bryan, and not part of that sentence feels normal yet.

The original plan was to give myself “not writing about Raw and Smackdown this week” as a Christmas present, but then Smackdown Live opened with The New Daniel Bryan® beating the shit out of “Truthy Claus” for holiday flossing, and I had to reconsider.

In case you missed it, R-Truth shows up with “Carm-elf-a” to “spread holiday joy” or whatever, and The New Daniel Bryan shows up to tell them some hard truths about Santa Claus dying because we’ve destroyed the environment and the polar ice caps are melting. I remain forever entertained by the best pro wrestler of the past 20 years adding “not showering” and “CJ Parker” to his character, and although it would be the worst career move of all time, I kinda hope Juice Robinson finds his way back one day to be the Alex Riley to Bryan’s Miz.
