[Editor's Note: This is my first ever guest column. This was written by Chadam and I'm assuming he is the same Chadam who leaves comments at THE INFAMOUS JCITY. Chadam sent me an email with this column and I decided to use it.]
John Cena is a robot. I know, I know, some of you are thinking that this sounds like a fantasy story merged with a wrestling role-play game. But hear me out, I actually have some evidence to back me up. If anyone has the money to invest in robot wrestler technology, it’s Vince McMahon.

Welcome to another WWE Smackdown review. I will try to keep the review short this time. One thing I need to mention is that I will no longer mention best/worst spot for every match. If I notice some good or bad spots, I will mention them in my match reviews but if I don’t see any then I will simply not mention them. That was the only thing I needed to tell you before I start the Smackdown review.

One of the biggest complaints of the WWE is that they don't push their mid-card division enough. I agree with that complaint. There are a lot of talented young Superstars in the WWE and there aren't getting pushed. A lot of them are rarely on TV. The WWE needs to push their younger stars. If they don't, then fans will continue to want WWE Legends like Chris Jericho, Mick Foley, Stone Cold, Shawn Michaels, and The Rock to make more WWE appearances and they will continue to beg that old veterans like Undertaker, Kane, Triple H, Rey Mysterio, and Christian don't retire. The two current World Champions in the WWE, John Cena and Mark Henry, are a combined age of 74. That's an average age of 37 which is too old. The veterans will have to retire eventually so the WWE needs to build for the future. In this column, I will list the top five WWE Superstars who I want the WWE to give a push within the next 12 months.

I'm currently working on a new column. It will be exactly what the above title says: my list of five WWE Superstars who I want to get pushed. You will see that list when the column is done. All five of them are young and all of them are mid-card WWE Superstars who currently are not wearing WWE gold around their waist. Some of them are on TV regularly and some are not. That's all I can say right now.

Congratulations to Mark Henry! Mark Henry won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship by defeating Randy Orton at Night of Champions last night. Mark Henry has been with the WWE for 15 years and this is his first ever World Championship in the WWE. Now when Mark Henry retires, he can say that he was the World's Strongest Champion.

I’m back with another Smackdown review. Before I get started, I am making two changes to my review style. First of all, I am adding two new words to my match ratings. In addition to “very boring”, “boring”, “average”, “good”, “great”, and “amazing”, I will be using the words “very good” and “classic”. Last week, I said that the Orton vs. Rhodes match was “great”. It was better than “good” but it wasn’t a “great” match so if I could rate the match again, I would call it “very good”. As for my “classic” rating, that will be given to matches I think are one of the best of all-time so don’t expect me to use that word often. The “amazing” rating will now refer to matches that aren’t “classic” but could be a Match of the Year contender. The second change I will make is that I will be naming the best and worst spot of each match. Now it’s time to review Friday Night Smackdown!

I promised I would do at least one “How I Would Book It” column each month so this month I am booking WWE Night of Champions which is this Sunday. Fun fact: I attended last year’s Night of Champions in Chicago. I think booking Pay-Per-Views is a cheap way to meet my once-a-month quota but this will have to do. Maybe next month or later this month, I’ll book a current or potential feud. As of right now, there are seven matches on the Night of Champions match card and I do not expect any more matches to be added. I will preview each match in the order I think they will happen during the PPV, I will give my predictions, and I will describe how I would book each match.

Welcome to my first ever WWE Smackdown review. I’m not sure if I will be reviewing Smackdown every week. After I review this week’s Smackdown, I will decide if I will continue to review them. One thing I need to mention before I start is that I will be rating each match. However, I won’t be using a star rating. I like the idea of rating matches using a five-star scale but it can be too confusing. What’s the difference between a *** match and a *** ¼ match? A wise man once wrote that a match is good, great, or boring. I like that idea so I will use those words to rate the matches. I will also use “average”, “very boring”, and “amazing”. “Average” will be for matches that aren’t boring but also aren’t good, “very boring” will be rarely used and only used for matches I think are among the worst matches I have ever seen, and “amazing” will only be used for matches I consider to be all-time classics so don’t expect many “amazing” ratings. This way I can accurately rate the matches without anyone arguing that I should have given a good match more stars or a bad match less stars. Also I like this because if I did star ratings, I would refuse to give any match less than two stars. All professional wrestlers are very talented and in my opinion giving a match one star or calling it a “DUD” is very insulting to the professional wrestlers especially if the writer has no professional wrestling experience.
Okay…it’s now time to start my Smackdown review!

CM Punk Says "Click is the noise the audience’s remote control makes every time Kevin Nash pops up on their TV screen"
Thursday, September 1, 2011
I have been to six WWE live events in my life despite the fact that I didn't go to my first live event until May 2009. I have seen a lot of WWE matches in-person and many of them were really good. Although I expect to see many more WWE live matches in the future, I have decided to rank my favorite WWE matches I have seen in-person at live events. For this list, I have included every WWE match I have ever seen except for dark matches and house show matches. Basically, any match that was not televised is not on my list. I have seen about six dark matches and I went to a WWE house show that featured eight matches. Some of the non-televised matches were really good and one of them was a very good John Morrison vs. CM Punk match but the main reason why I'm not including those matches is because I don't remember them very well and I can't re-watch them if I wanted too. I have almost all of the other matches on DVD and the few that I don't have on DVD are matches I could find on YouTube.
I currently have over 1,550 views since I started this blog in late April 2011 and 857 of those views came from the month of August. Last month was a great month for my blog. Before August, the most views I had in a month was 261. I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the 857 views in August. I don't count my own views so I am very proud of the 857 views I got. I will try to add more original articles to this blog as often as I can in September and my goal is to have 1,000 views this month.
Thanks for reading.
