WWE SmackDown is set to air tomorrow night on SyFy. Usually I would be releasing my "Good, bad and ugly" article immediately after the Blue Brand ends. However, I may not be able to do such a thing this week.
It is sure to be a great show. Daniel Bryan is still champion. Sheamus is on his way to WrestleMania. Even Teddy Long has been on a roll as of late! I really hope I get to see the program Friday night. If not, I am going to continue giving my stance on SmackDown up until Friday night.
For that reason, I will be giving my thoughts on a few SmackDown spoilers before the show. Yes, this will feature spoilers to SmackDown this week. You have been warned!
According to this report, Jim Duggan will be on SmackDown this week. That may not be a huge shocker, as he was at the Royal Rumble on Sunday. However, it will be interesting to see how his appearances end up.
Based on the spoiler report, he and Santino Marella form a new tag team. Could they be named "Santinoooooooo?" Stay tuned tomorrow to see if that is actually their name, but it was indicated as such.
During their match against Primo and Epico, Rosa Mendes caused a distraction allowing her team to pick up the victory. That is not too surprising, as they are champions and should be winning.
However, I have to ask. Was this a one-time deal? Will Hacksaw and Santino be partners moving forward or was this a nice moment for Duggan after the Rumble?
Honestly, I would not mind either way.
Some may forget this, but Jim Duggan actually had a fun run on Raw a few years ago. He was used every so often and would provide the right amount of comic relief and in-ring action when needed. His run included funny backstage segments, as well as random tag teams for the Red Brand.
Again, it was nothing amazing, but I enjoyed it. He did some good work. Doing the same with Santino could be a fun act for the Blue Brand. Whether it is backstage as some sort of assistant or even inside the squared circle, I am open to ideas.
My only concern was that they lost. Had they won against Primo and Epico, I might feel differently. Santino and Duggan lost. That seems to spell the end of the road for them as a team...
In the end, I still want to see how this entire situation ends up. It is no secret WWE could use a few teams right now. Rosa is the true star of the tag team division in WWE right now and could use some opposition.
She may be one of my "it" girls, but she can't face the Uso's week after week. Primo and Epico need some competition and fast!
Are Santino and Hacksaw the answer? Let me know below...
