Was that Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho jolly rancher segment on SmackDown brilliant or what? Comedy skits backstage are not always as memorable these days thanks to an over reliance on predictable script writing, but thankfully, there is still a select few like Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens that never fail at the art of improv.
Comedy value aside, the exchange reminded us why these two should have a program together. For a while, it appeared that there was an unofficial loose alliance between the pair—a brilliant heel teacher and student relationship that surely has the depth to go further.
I know many people will balk at the idea, but would a "JeriKO" tag team be that awful? I know that the division is well stocked at present, but just imagine what fun these two could have together. They would easily have a dysfunctional dynamic akin to the success of Team Hell No.
With the impending draft, I do not know whether such a team could ever be made formal or not, but I would hate for this to have been the last time that the pair ever exchange blows — comedic or otherwise.
Am I the only one confused by the compound fight between The Wyatt Family and The New Day?
Firstly, did they really squander a big build-up only to have them fight for a few minutes in a brawl with no real winner or advancement in the storyline? Yes, Xavier looked a bit spooked throughout, but not to the point where he was unable to help Big E and Kofi Kingston. So, we are none the wiser where his head is at.
Also, the elephant in the room that we cannot ignore: was this a piss take of "The Final Deletion," or a genuine rare example of WWE copying TNA because they liked an idea?
While fighting outdoors was commonplace in WWE during the Hardcore Championship era, there can be no denying the similarities between this and The Hardyz show down last week.
Though I found the compound fight fun, I do think that this is a missed opportunity if it is all WWE does with it. Surely, this could have been a much bigger and bolder thing at Battleground?
Also, no dilapidated boat? No contest.
So there you have it, my two choices for the week. What do YOU think are the Cheap Pop and Cheap Heat this week in professional wrestling? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
