WWE Smackdown Preview (22/04/19)-Superstar Shakeup Fallouts, Roman Reigns-Mr. McMahon
WWE Superstar Shakeup ended in a pleasant way as Smackdown received the show-runner. None other than Roman Reigns joined the blue brigade to close the process. He also made an emphatic statement by attacking Vince McMahon with a Superman Punch. We expect major fallouts from his action as the post-Wrestlemania tour continues for the Tuesday Night Show. Additionally, other new superstars will also search for their opportunities as Money in the Bank approaches.
Finn Balor, Ember Moon, Bayley, Lars Sullivan are the newest acquisition on Smackdown roster. They all are ready to prove their potential after entering the ‘land of opportunity’. We will see what awaits in their fate starting from tonight. Also, Kofi Kingston should receive his first opponent over the WWE Championship after winning it at Wrestlemania 35. All of these will be waiting when the show emanates from the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska.
As stated earlier, Roman Reigns is the biggest inclusion on Smackdown Live brand following Superstar Shakeup. He claimed this to be his new yard and what better way to prove it by attacking The Boss himself? But was his action right considering that McMahon does not forget things that easy? He is likely to throw curveballs in the path of Roman Reigns starting from tonight. WWE.com already raised the questions whether Mr. McMahon fires him tonight,
“Before the WWE Universe could even catch their collective breath, Roman Reigns suddenly emerged as the newest addition to SmackDown LIVE and delivered the Superman Punch to both Mr. McMahon and his acquisition. The Big Dog has declared that the blue brand is his new yard! But, will Reigns find himself out of a job this Tuesday for his actions against the Chairman?”
Kofi Kingston is still waiting to receive his first championship opponent ever since Wrestlemania 35 passed by. Daniel Bryan is dealing with an injury and hence he is not likely to come back, as early as possible. Hence, a new name should become the new number, one contender, to challenge the current champion for the title. As for tonight, Kofi Kingston is set to compete in a match. He will battle The King of Strong Style, Shinsuke Nakamura in a one-on-one bout. If Nakamura picks up the win, somehow then he might become the new number one contender for WWE title.
Paige has returned to Smackdown brand as a manager for two young ladies who have now become a tag team. Asuka and Kairi Sane are the two names who will now be part of the women’s tag division. They are the likely names to become the new challengers for the tag titles with a veteran former champion guiding them.
Last but not least, two of the Wrestlemania main-eventers comes face-to-face on this episode of Smackdown Live. This is for the first time ever that Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch will confront each other since that historic match. It’s still not clear why WWE has set up this segment. But we guess it has something to do with the women’s championship. Becky is still a Smackdown superstar which is why she should separately this brand’s title alongside the red-strapped belt, too.
