Team Red wasn’t the only crew having fun on Tuesday night. Sure, the Raw roster got to do it up in full, continuity-light house show style at Manhattan’s Madison Square Garden, but SmackDown delivered a solid show and had an opportunity to show off a little in their post-205 Live dark match.
It was there, in the latest iteration of a six-man tag the blue brand’s been running a lot lately (AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura and Randy Orton vs. Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn and Jinder) that special guest referee ran the ropes and helped set-up the finish.
That said referee was Daniel Bryan makes this a little more interesting, although we won’t pretend his doing some physical comedy in the ring is a milestone on a comeback from his retirement due to concussion issues, or a sign WWE is changing their stance on him wrestling again.
DB dosey-doe-ing Sami into a RKO sure is fun, though...
Shout out to whoever decides to inform the folks around him The Viper’s about to strike, in case they’ve never seen a Randy Orton match before.
Sorry, that was troll-y. Point is, non-televised WWE stuff rules.
