WWE pulled a bit of a bait-and-switch on us at Battleground last night (July 23). Jokes about promising to deliver a pay-per-view (PPV) aside, SmackDown did give the impression we’d not only learn the identity of whoever trashed Breezango’s office, but that Tyler Breeze and Fandango would meet them face-to-face in the ring.
As you can see in the above clip from the latest “Fashion Files”, that didn’t happen. But when something’s as routinely entertaining as these ongoing skits have been, you can’t even be mad about it. The Ascension keep trying to grab a piece of Prince Pretty and Dango’s spotlight, but their being incapable of turning down two tickets to paradise outed them as pretend monsters yet again.
With the latest Konnor and Viktor fake-out revealed, things took a dark turn. Seriously, there hasn’t been anything this creepy on the real X-Files in years*!

So we didn’t get any answers, and there’s nothing here to take us off the scent of existing most-likely-to-destroy-toy-horses suspects like Luke Harper and Erick Rowan or NXT’s SAnitY. But they managed to ramp up the intrigue nonetheless.
Hopefully on Tuesday we’ll learn more, but in the meantime... what do you think happened to Fandango!?!?
My money is still on ghost aliens.
* Full disclosure - despite a huge, persistent crush on Gillian Anderson, I haven’t watched any X-Files since about 1998, so this probably isn’t true.
