3 Positive Takeaways From WWE SmackDown Episode – September 1st, 2023

8 months ago By Sports Desk

WWE SmackDown continues to provide the wrestling world with captivating storylines, show-stopping matches, and epic confrontations. The episode on September 1st, 2023, was no exception. Here are three positive takeaways that left fans buzzing with excitement ahead of the Payback pay-per-view event.

First, let’s talk about the surprising synergy between Grayson Waller and Austin Theory. The two faced off against wrestling legends Rey Mysterio and Santos Escobar, and not only did they display incredible teamwork, they even secured a victory. This was a landmark moment, especially for Waller, as it marked his first win on the main roster. Their ability to work so cohesively suggests that this alliance could shake up the tag team division, adding a fresh layer of competition that’s sure to keep fans hooked.

Next, who could overlook the verbal fireworks between LA Knight and The Miz? These two have been at each other’s throats since they clashed on RAW, but it was their confrontation on SmackDown that stole the show. With unparalleled mic skills, both superstars delivered stinging barbs that were as entertaining as they were impactful, culminating in a brawl that set the stage perfectly for their upcoming match at Payback. Given how both performers excel at crowd engagement, this feud is highly anticipated and will likely be a highlight of the event.

Finally, the return of John Cena was nothing short of electrifying. Cena is not just a superstar; he’s an institution in WWE, and his announcement about his schedule for the coming weeks, including an upcoming match in India and hosting duties at Payback, sent fans into a frenzy. But it was his faceoff with Jimmy Uso that really amped up the drama. Cena’s remark about ‘the wrong Uso quitting’ following Jey Uso’s exit added a new dimension to the Bloodline storyline. What’s more, when Jimmy attempted a sneak attack with a superkick, Cena countered with his iconic Attitude Adjustment, evoking a sense of nostalgia and showing that he’s still got it.

As WWE gears up for the Payback pay-per-view event, these pivotal moments from SmackDown not only satisfied long-time fans but also set the stage for some potentially unforgettable clashes. From newcomers proving their mettle to established stars delivering as always, SmackDown’s latest episode was a potent blend of the old and the new, leaving us eagerly awaiting what comes next.
