Best: 30 Minutes Of R-Truth
I’ve typed it before, but one of the best stories of 2018 is someone at Smackdown looking at 46-year old R-Truth, realizing he’s in better shape than 99% of 20-year olds, remembering he’s a 20-plus-year veteran who’s spent most of the past decade dressing up like Sherlock Holmes in comedy bits or whatever, and thinking, “oh, we could probably use this guy for something.” And then Frank Viola, here’s Truth not only anchoring a comedy segment to open Smackdown, but expertly playing to the crowd for like 20 minutes, getting over a batch of different stories, and parlaying the opening into an entertaining 12 minutes of wrestling. So, so good.
