3 Talking Points From Tonight’s Episode Of WWE Smackdown – 15th September 2023

10 months ago By Sports Desk

The echoes from WWE SmackDown’s latest edition on 15th September 2023 are reverberating across the pro-wrestling community. The evening was packed with high-octane action, gripping drama, and unexpected turns that have become synonymous with WWE. From the enigmatic appearance of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to John Cena’s ordeal at the hands of the Uso dynasty, here’s an in-depth look at the standout moments that had fans on the edge of their seats.

The arena’s atmosphere was electric right from the outset, and as the drama unfolded, it was clear that this was a night no WWE enthusiast would soon forget. The magnitude of events was such that picking just three pivotal moments to spotlight seems almost unjust. Yet, a few stood out as game-changers.

At the forefront was John Cena’s tumultuous night. After his previous face-off with Jimmy Uso, Cena was clearly on the Bloodline’s radar. As Cena took center stage, it was Grayson Waller who first tried to cast a shadow over Cena’s legacy. The Australian star, Waller, known for his outspoken nature, had an audacious claim about Cena, doubting his commitment to the sport. Waller’s audacity didn’t end there; he suggested Cena’s days at the top are numbered, citing his loss at WrestleMania 39 as evidence of a shifting tide.

However, it was Jimmy Uso, bolstered by his newfound ally Solo Sikoa, who would turn words into actions. Their ambush on Cena might have spelled doom had it not been for AJ Styles, the former WWE Champion who didn’t hesitate to come to Cena’s rescue. Styles’ intervention adds a fresh layer to an already intricate storyline, leaving fans eager for what’s next.

If that wasn’t enough to send shockwaves through the SmackDown audience, the unexpected presence of the ‘Brahma Bull’ certainly did. The arena in Denver was buzzing with anticipation as Pat McAfee, the ever-enthusiastic commentator-turned-ringmaster for the night, held court. But when Austin Theory tried to steal the limelight, it was Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson who had the last laugh.

The showdown between the industry’s new blood and one of its greatest legends was a spectacle in and of itself. And with McAfee thrown into the mix, it was a perfect blend of showmanship and skill. The Rock’s iconic ‘People’s Elbow,’ delivered with the same flair as in his prime, was a nostalgic treat for long-time followers. This segment was a testament to the Rock’s undying charisma and the WWE’s ability to consistently bridge the past with the present.

But the evening wasn’t done serving up classic WWE theatrics. In what was a testament to his rising status, LA Knight faced off against The Miz, in a rematch from WWE Payback. The history between these two was palpable, with their previous bout having the legend, John Cena, as the special guest referee. The stakes seemed just as high this time around. LA Knight’s victory over The Miz solidified his claims of being main event material.

Knight’s victory speech, however, was what captured most fans’ imaginations. Not content with just the win, he cast his gaze towards the summit, naming some of the biggest stars in WWE today. From Rey Mysterio and Seth Rollins to Gunther and Roman Reigns, Knight made it clear that he’s on a mission. His claim of being the best, barring the number one spot, has left fans speculating on who he might challenge next.
