Previously on the Best and Worst of Smackdown: The New Daniel Bryan equated eating hot dogs and drinking high fructose corn syrup with cheering AJ Styles, and honestly, where’s the lie? Also, Becky Lynch became the number one contender to the Smackdown Women’s Championship a couple of weeks after being named the number one contender to the Smackdown Women’s Championship.

Here’s this week’s Best and Worst of WWE Smackdown Live for January 15, 2019.
The Noble Sacrifice Of The IIconics
A lot of steps to get through here, so stay with me.
The show opens with The Man® arriving in a rental SUV, treating poor Cathy 3 like she’s a lowly Cathy 5, and sampling a grotesque “protein shake” whipped up by local championship belt harasser Otis Dozovic. It looks like Smackdown’s writing team at least realizes that Heavy Machinery are supposed to be dumb, affable Varsity Blues team members and not free-roaming perverts, which is progress. Also, bless New Day for staying perfectly in character despite being relegated to the background, with Big E weirdly rubbing himself down the entire time and Xavier Woods nonchalantly unzipping his track suit top to show Becky he’s wearing her shirt.
