4 Ups And 4 Downs From Last Night’s WWE SmackDown (Sept 10)

11 September 2015 11:57 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

This week’s SmackDown was another average show that continued the build up to WWE Night of Champions next Sunday. As usual, several of the biggest names in the company were missing, but at least the WWE Champion Seth Rollins was there.

WWE once again teased the idea that Sheamus is going to cash in the Money in the Bank briefcase at Night of Champions. The show progressed the current storylines in some ways, but then they took some step backs by booking some odd finishes or completely ignoring the idea of booking a finish.

Here are the match results from this week’s show:

Cesaro defeated The Miz by submission using the Sharpshooter.

Paige and Sasha Banks had a match that ended in a No Contest when they wouldn’t stop brawling.

Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose & Jimmy Uso wrestled The New Day in a match with no »

This is the biggest award show you've probably never heard of, but it's the ultimate get-together for Hollywood insiders -- and more fun than the Globes and Oscars combined. The annual ceremony hosted by the resort town's International Film Festival is perhaps the only awards show that is not at all about the suspense of who will win -- that's negotiated in advance -- but rather the impassioned acceptance speeches. Or, in Brad Pitt's case, the sing-along »
