    This week's SmackDown spoilers:

    Spoiler:
    Show

    - Roman Reigns came out and made his way to the ring, but was booed heavily by the Cincinnati crowd. He cut a promo on Triple H, his return on RAW, and the upcoming WM32 match.
    - Dolph Ziggler def. The Miz.
    - The first of several Dean Ambrose vignettes aired, with The Lunatic Fringe out and about in his hometown.
    - Bubba Ray Dudley def. Goldust. D-Von beat down Goldust after the match, only for R-Truth to make the save. The Usos follow, clearing the ring of Dudleys.
    - Earlier in the day, Michael Cole interviewed Kalisto, who accepted Ryback's challenge for a match at WM32.
    - Charlotte, Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks went face-to-face. The talking broke down after some insults from Charlotte. Lynch and Banks tried to take Charlotte out, but she escaped.
    - The New Day cut a promo accepting The League of Nations' promo for a match at WM32.
    - Kofi Kingston def. King Barrett after a brawl at ringside provided a distraction.
    - The Social Outcasts were in the ring, holding the show up, when Ambrose unloaded on them with a kendo stick. He vowed to see Brock Lesnar next week in Boston.

    Not convinced on it, buddy. What about you?

    I think Shane O'Mac is out of his depth when delivering a promo. After the initial pop and excitement wore off, he has struggled on the mic and he should be nowhere near Undertaker in terms of a feud.

    This won't damage Undertaker's legacy, but how are we supposed to believe WrestleMania's greatest ever athlete and superstar will be pushed all the way by a man who hasn't wrestled in a decade?

    It would have been good if Shane had returned, and recruited a babyface to do his bidding. It could have given Dolph Ziggler some narrative, because he's anti-Authority and is lacking a decent programme right now.

    I don't get why Undertaker is on Vince's side, either.

    His own fault for sticking with TNA in 2011 I think it was. Months later, Taker was wrestling in front of millions, Sting was forcibly legit pinning a drugged up Jeff Hardy in front of thousands in Orlando Studios.

    At least Sting was one of those that kept on going until they physically couldn't anymore.

    Was it that turnbuckle powerbomb from Seth at Survivor Series that finished him off or something? Can't really remember.

    That night was legit the most uncomfortable I've ever been watching wrestling. Horrible night.

    Not surprising WWE never gave the audience Sting v Taker - that should have been the only match the former did. Instead they went for the HHH match at last year's Mania and a program that resulted in his retirement. A waste sadly.

    Triple H is more capable of carrying Sting than Undertaker is, though. I actually think Triple H is glowing right now. I thought he was rusty a year ago, and his match with Sting at WM31 was a stinker, but he's thrived both in the ring and with the mic since having the strap. He's such a monster heel.

    Vince will always be the best heel in WWE history, but Triple H isn't far off.

    Replace 'WWE' and 'they' with 'Triple H'. Triple H books himself against the biggest name and shoehorns himself into WrestleMania. Taker, Lesnar, Bryan because CM Punk would rather retire, Sting, now Reigns.

    HHH literally crowned himself champion despite being retired and has put himself into the main event of WrestleMania.

    SmackDown in Ambrose's hometown. May be wise of WWE not to give Reigns a promo/match...

    Hogan just won over $100million and thus ruined the company that posted his sex tape, a happy ending for him.

    He even wore a black bandana in court.

    No doubt he'll celebrate by re-tweeting pictures of Fred and Rose West or something.

    Reigns got plenty of boos last night on RAW, but WWE were clever in their handling of him. He came across as the silent badass, and I think it's wise for the company to get rid of his 'walking through the crowd' entrance now. He stood up well to Stephanie in the promo, and the exchange with Triple H later on was refreshing.

    I have no interest in seeing Kevin Owens defend the IC title in a multi-man match personally. I'd rather Kalisto did that, rather than face Ryback. That would allow Owens and Sami Zayn to put on a stellar one-on-one bout. It's great to see Zack Ryder get a push, though.

    It was a weird RAW in many ways. Vince McMahon's promo was one of his worst, and the Dean Ambrose vs Braun Strowman match was nowhere near a main event. Apparently Luke Harper got injured in it, and Strowman was attacked by a fan who got wrestled down by security.

    Kane and Big Show needs no writing from me, it was just pointless. As is the Social Outcasts going up against the latter.

    The New Day need to display more overtly face tactics against the League of Nations, while the Usos and Dudley Boyz are really doing their best but need more TV air time.

    To be honest, AJ Styles/Chris Jericho is one of my favourite feuds in years.

    - A backstage segment involving Goldust and R-Truth occurred.
