Smackdown Live (4/25)

"I don't  exactly know what a House of Horrost match is, but for some reason I feel like Sunday, I'm going to find out."

God, Randy Orton sucks.

You have a feeling that on Sunday, you're going to find out what the match you're in on Sunday and have been booke in for two weeks now is going to be? Good call, Nostradamus.

There were a few non-awful things on this week's Smackdown. The idea of a "Beat The Clock" challenge for the tag title shot. Paying attention to the tag division at all. Rusev covering for his shoulder surgery by essentially going on strike unless he gets a title shot at Money In The Bank. Jinder Mahal and the Bollywood Boys sort of building credibility. And Naomi and Charlotte put on a decent women's match for a while.

But a "Beat The Clock" challenge with two matches is pointless. Also, Beezango won? While I could certainly be behind a Breezango push, for Tyler Breeze's sake, I'm not sure this is the way to do it. Also, Jinder Mahal cut an awful promo that basically took Mustafa Ali's original dumb heel gimmick. I mean, don't get me wrong, it was way better than Orton's garbage promo, but still. And is Charlotte a face now? Or is the SD women's division really two faces, three heels, and a heel the other three heels hate? Also, was the heels' actual plan to stare at Charlotte backstage one week and then mundane match interference the next? Not a great plan.
