Previously on the Best and Worst of WWE Smackdown Live: We had an entire episode about how hard it is to impress George Mizanin!

If you need a clear illustration of how WWE’s living in the past and has no confidence in their ideas anymore, look at Becky Lynch.

It’s the purest distillation of professional wrestling: one person vs. one other person on the biggest stage competing for what’s become the most prestigious championship.
