Here’s this week’s Best and Worst of WWE Smackdown Live, New Years Day edition, for January 1, 2019.

Best: Big Hair John

Let’s go ahead and start off the column with the only segment anyone’s going to remember from this episode: the Smackdown Live return of “free agent” John Cena, now with realistic life-like hair. I typed this on Twitter, and I’ve probably already typed it in the column a thousand times, but I always want John Cena on television until he’s actually there. Then all my wrestling fan Spidey Senses start tingling and I have to type 15 bad things about him. Say what you will, but that “he gets a reaction” thing is truer for John Cena than it is for anyone. I can’t have him on TV without feeling something, good or bad.
