Last night’s Smackdown opened up with the WWE Champion who got a great reception from the crowd, as usual. It was even fired up with the arrival of Rusev alongside Aiden English.

Moreover, the audience loved the idea of these two favorites fighting it out in the opening contest. But, a disqualification, out of nowhere ruined the momentum.

A tag team match announcement could not save the segment.

The first acquisition of Smackdown Live brand was revealed in the form of Jeff Hardy. Some of the fans really hoped to see Seth Rollins getting traded to the blue brand considering that the US title was sent to Raw, yesterday.

However, the officials expressed happiness to bring the United States title back on Smackdown, overnight. The match against Shelton Benjamin was okay and perhaps it might help him to do some solo acts on the show.

The Bludgeon Brothers continued their momentums on the Smackdown Live. They are currently being portrayed as literally inhuman, right now. It is to be noted that they are neither pinned nor submitted after re-debuting on the main roster, last November.

Naomi’s inclusion into the storyline mix was a notable one, too. Samoa Joe getting added to Smackdown roster will work well for the brand which would help to build some big-time rivalries, going forward.

Carmella will try to present herself as the strong heel champion on the show. But, with the presence of Charlotte Flair, Iconic Duo and the arrival of Asuka into the mix, will definitely not let her hold the title for a long time.

In the meantime, she tried to defy all the roster members with a strong heeling promo on the ‘Mellabration’ segment.

Afterward, Billie Kay was seen in her first match on the Smackdown Live division. It was great to see her improving as an in-ring competitor.

Furthermore, Smackdown culminated on a great note with the teasing of numerous new rivalries.

For now, the WWE Championship feud should continue between AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura.

In the meantime, Big Cass will be going after Daniel Bryan to rejuvenate his WWE career right after returning to the mix.
