Mojo Rawley showed up at Battleground, and got a spot in the battle royal to open the first SmackDown Live of the ‘new era’.
What about the other four men and women drafted from NXT to the blue brand along with him?
Well, let’s just say they didn’t have as good a night as Finn Bálor did last night on Raw.
Carmella & Alexa Bliss were part of a “every woman on the roster comes out to say they’re the best” segment after Becky Lynch defeated Natalya in a match. They were honestly overshadowed by Eva Marie’s over-the-top new entrance, which abruptly ended the segment. The Buffalo crowd didn’t seem overly familiar with either woman.
At least they made the show. American Alpha got a version of the video package NXT watchers have seen before as an introduction, and then a “see them next week” teaser.
Maybe Mojo got the best roll-out of any of them.
What did you think of the presentation of SmackDown Live’s NXT Superstars?
