This week’s Smackdown kicked off with the MITB women’s summit.

This week’s Smackdown kicked off with the MITB women’s summit. We expected this segment to get out of hands with the female MITB participants participating in it.

The scene became even more chaotic with the arrival of IIconics, Mandy Rose, and Sony Deville. It was a fun segment to open the show which was far better than that of the ladder segment from last night’s Raw.

The match between Daniel Bryan and Shelton Benjamin was a solid one. There’s no doubt about Bryan being a veteran competitor.

Last night Benjamin showed he did not lose a step either. There’s a reason the pro-wrestling universe called him ‘the golden standard’. He proves it to be true giving a tough competition to the leader of YES movement.

Another fun contest took place between Rusev and Samoa Joe with The Miz being the special guest referee. We knew that his involvement was going to affect the match.

So how cost Joe the matchup on Smackdown Live. It became an entertaining contest with three heels in the ring at the same time which is a rare thing. The New Day gave a surprise to The Miz with the pancakes after the match which was funny too.

The match between Nakamura and Jeff Hardy was good too. It’s hard to get a bad match between these two considering their veteran skills.

They delivered to the full extent until Nakamura disqualified the match. We expected the ambush to continue so that AJ can come out and confront Nakamura. But the Smackdown creative team chose to keep these two separate until MITB PPV.

Smackdown main event match from Memphis was pretty huge. It’s quite often that we see the entire female division competing in the same match.

It was a good idea to let each of them have some screen space before this Sunday’s MITB ladder match and the title match. All of them got to show their ability inside the ring. Meanwhile, Asuka sought redemption by tapping out Carmella to end the night.

It was another food effort from the Smackdown creative team to hype-up MITB. Here are the Twitter reactions from the night,
