WWE Smackdown Preview (28/05/19): Kofi Kingston-Kevin Owens, Super ShowDown Hypes
WWE Smackdown witnessed a big shocker en route to Super ShowDown, last week. The complexion of the WWE Championship changed entirely through a shocking return. Former World Heavyweight Champion, Dolph Ziggler found his way back to the storyline to earn a title match at the upcoming PPV event. What would be the fallout of the attack from the show-off? We will find out on tonight’s episode of Smackdown Live.
Additionally, the champion is up for a challenge from Kevin Owens in a rematch from Money in the Bank. The women’s championship picture will also be a major concern on the show. The new champion Bayley will look forward to getting her first title-match opponent. Also, there will be hypes for the Super ShowDown event that is happening on June 7th in Saudi Arabia. Tonight’s Smackdown airs live at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
There’s been a drastic change in the WWE Championship picture on last week’s episode of Smackdown Live. Dolph Ziggler made his shocking return targeting Kofi Kingston with relentless attacks. It left him lying on a stretcher but he still managed to walk out of the show on his own. The picture repeated on this week’s episode of WWE Raw when Ziggler pounced on him from the back again.
Later, Dolph Ziggler claimed he deserves the same respect as the champion himself. He is also working for the same timespan as Kofi Kingston is here in the WWE. But was those comments justified after such an attack on a defenseless person? Tonight, we are likely to see a fallout on the developing situation. But that’s not all that the champion has to deal with on Smackdown. He will face Kevin Owens in a non-time match against Kevin Owens, his Money in the Bank opponent.
Bayley claimed a historic moment for herself at Money in the Bank by cashing in the briefcase on Charlotte Flair. She became the new Smackdown women’s champion and thereby the first-ever triple crown champion from the female roster. But that does not how she can cement her legacy. Rather, she has to defend that title.
But WWE has not dropped any hint on who’d be her first opponent over the Smackdown women’s title since Money in the Bank passed by. Tonight, we may learn the same as booking Bayley in random tag team matches will not make her a strong champion, at all.
The Intercontinental Championship will be on the line between Finn Balor and Andrade at Super ShowDown. This is the first time ever that ‘El Idolo’ is getting an opportunity to compete for the prestigious mid-card title. But he will be up against an unbeaten Demon persona of the champion. Can he pick up enough momentums to do the unthinkable on Smackdown?
Smackdown tag team championship storyline may not see any progress since Daniel Bryan is not visiting Saudi Arabia. He and Rowan are yet to get a challenger over the titles ever since winning this prior to Money in the Bank. We wonder whether these two will get a strong booking since they’re skipping Super ShowDown.
Roman Reigns is up for a tough battle at Super ShowDown. Battling Shane McMahon is not a solo task for him as he has to tackle all the hired goons of the authority figures, for weeks. Over on WWE Raw, Shane tried to embarrass him by bringing one of his cousins on the show and punishing him with a chokehold. Reigns backfired with two Superman punches but he might be fuming inside, still. We expect the Big Dog to fire back on McMahon with full force when Smackdown airs, tonight.
