27 WTF Moments From WWE SmackDown Live (Sept 13)

Guess who's back, back again... James Freakin' Ellsworth!

Backlash was good, wasn't it? Heading into the show, a cold build up and uninspiring card, made even worse by the concussion Randy Orton suffered at the hands of Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam which meant The Viper was forced to pull out, didn't look good for the blue brand's first live event.

However, the Kane - who replaced Orton - versus Bray Wyatt match aside, it was a thoroughly enjoyable show. There wasn't too much nonsense, there was good wrestling, great storytelling and most importantly, every match ended with the right winner in the eyes of the majority of the WWE Universe.

So then, could this week's SmackDown Live keep momentum up and the proverbial ball rolling ahead of the next special event, No Mercy?

With all of these new champions, and the possibility of Intercontinental Champion The Miz and Daniel Bryan's fledgling rivalry looking like starting up again after their 'contract renegotiation' schtick at Backlash, there wasn't too much danger of them failing.

The show has a fresh feel to it these days. It's exciting, it's crowd pleasing, it's almost everything that WWE have been lacking in the not too distant past.

It's magical how great a WWE show can make you feel when you can see the product on television clearly has more than an ounce of influence from the fans...

Here are all of the WTF Moments from this week's SmackDown Live...
