It was a busy episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown this week. You never know when a member of the roster will get a mind of their own the turn to the dark side. This happened three times this week.
Apollo Crews finally turned heel on Big E this week. He assaulted Big E with ring steps even after being begged by referees to stop. This was after Apollo lost to Shinsuke Nakamura. Big E was then stretchered out of the arena, and then they showed him being loaded into an ambulance.
The team of Otis and Chad Gable also apparently turned heel this week. They took on Rey Mysterio and Dominik in tag team action. SmackDown Tag Team Champions Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler were on commentary during that time.
The Mysterios won the match, but this was after Otis hit splashes to Rey Mysterio while he ignored the referee’s 5 count. After the match, Otis his another splash to seemingly solidify the team’s turn to bad guy status.
SmackDown has an issue with roster depth, and they certainly need heels. It appears that they beefed up that side of the roster this week in a big way.
