Last week Smackdown arranged an excellent triple threat match between AJ Styles, Sami Zayn and Baron Corbin. This match left a lot of backlash behind.
With AJ Styles winning the whole thing, it marks the beginning of the feud between Kevin Owens and AJ Styles. We are hoping to see a great feud here.
The match also hinted a feud between Baron Corbin and Sami Zayn. This feud should happen. If they can arrange it properly, it can go on for months and it will definitely grow interesting with time. One thing they must make sure is, Sami Zayn should not get decimated in this feud as he used to be in his Raw feuds.
Shinsuke Nakamura and Dolph Ziggler got involved in a feud last week. We think they should not have a match so early. The process should be dragged for a longer time. If they have their first match directly at Backlash it would be a better idea. This will heat up the feud more and will draw anticipation too.
Moving on to Tye Dillinger. We think they should not involve Tye in any serious feud right now. He should continue beating jobbers like he has been during the past couple of weeks. His first serious feud should be booked against someone like Rusev.
As Rusev is injured out right now, they should not rush into anything foolish and should wait until he returns.
One more thing they need to make sure is, they should stop over pushing Mojo Rowley unnecessarily. Last week he literally had a squash match against Jinder Mahal. They could easily arrange a better feud between the two. But it could only become a ladder for Mojo. There is no problem with Jinder losing the feud, but at least they should arrange a feud between the two when it is possible to make.
As Kofi Kingston is out with an injury, last week we did not see the New Day. Kofi is still unlikely to return for this week. So we believe New Day should not appear this week either. They should appear altogether for the first time in Smackdown. Instead, they should book a match between American Alpha and the Shining Stars.
Moving on to the Women’s division; fans have already started to speculate that Charlotte will now feud with Naomi for the Women’s champion. We think it would not be a very good idea. Charlotte should have a non-title feud to begin her Smackdown run. A feud with Becky Lynch would be a good option. Naomi should feud Carmella. They hinted this feud last week too. A month long feud and a win for Naomi would be a good idea. Then they can build up the feud between Naomi and Charlotte for the Women’s championship.
