What To Expect From This Week’s WWE Smackdown Live: January 2, 2018
The surroundings around the Smackdown Live show is quite clumsy right now with multiple bad-bloods continuing. Controversies are going on for quite a long time which should be even bigger with the Royal Rumble approaching. Even last week, the show went off the air on a bitter note for the Smackdown commissioner, and he is taking some steps to even the odds.
After last night’s WWE Raw, it is time for Smackdown Live to kick things off in the New Year on a bigger note. There will be a championship match in-store on the night. The tag team title will be up for grabs. The Usos will defend the title. Also, we might learn about the WWE Championship match, tonight. This episode will be hosted at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.
Despite Shane McMahon opposing the idea of retaining Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn on the Smackdown Live brand, they closed the year 2017 on a higher note continuing the momentum. As a result of which, Owens had pinned none other than the WWE Champion, AJ Styles on last week’s episode.

Now, going forward, the prizefighter will be demanding a title match from the authorities which should be granted. Hence, AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens rematch for the Royal Rumble PPV over the WWE Championship should be made official by Daniel Bryan. Also, the champion will have to face Sami Zayn in a singles match, tonight.
Now, this decision might be eating Shane McMahon alive. He was the one who wanted to see Owens and Zayn fired from the show and now they will enter the title capacity. This would continue the bad blood between them, big time heading into the Royal Rumble PPV. A big culmination is expected in this rivalry, quite soon.
Charlotte Flair does not have any scheduled opponent, right now or her title, as well. Hence, she should get one, too. The most likely candidate to capture the spot would be Ruby Riott who has a pinfall victory under her name against the champion. Also, we can expect Becky Lynch to return to the show seeking vengeance against Riott and her heel squad.
The bracket for US title tournament has been revealed, and it will continue. There will be two more matches from the first round. The Usos will defend the tag team titles against Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable who has the least reaction from the crowd. Hence, we can’t expect the titles to change hands, tonight.
