Previously on the Best and Worst of WWE Smackdown Live: We learned about Lana Day, Kofi Kingston used Cesaro’s entire body as a springboard, and WWE promised us a Samoa Joe vs. Daniel Bryan one-on-one match we probably shouldn’t have gotten our hopes up over.

And now, the Best and Worst of WWE Smackdown Live for May 29, 2018.
Best, Then Worst: The Stench Of Cass
So, this is a “worst” from a fan perspective. I think WWE knows now that the most evil thing they can do to true wrestling fans is to present them with something they’d really want to see, only for someone unlikable to step in and “ruin” it. A good example of this is Nakamura showing up to end the first AJ Styles vs. Daniel Bryan match on WWE soil with low blows. A more direct example of this is Big Cass showing up to, uh, end the first Samoa Joe vs. Daniel Bryan match on WWE soil before it ever happens. From a “guy writing about wrestling on the Internet” perspective, I get it. It’s a very underhanded thing to do, and I hate Big Cass (the character) for repeatedly doing it. From a fan perspective, however, I’d like to see someone put Cass into a garbage can and dropkick him into the fucking sun.
