It was the very first episode of Smackdown Live for 2018. The reaction was great from the Orlando crowd in the opening segment for the veteran names like AJ Styles, Daniel Bryan, and Shane McMahon. However, it is to be noted that the storyline angle between the latterly mentioned duos is going nowhere, at this juncture.

No proper culmination is expected considering that Bryan is still not cleared to compete. Also, since Wrestlemania is more than two months away, this angle might be stretched unnecessarily so that a bigger perspective can be shown causing a match. But, nothing new is expected from these, for now.

The tag team title match was more than good with a twist in it. The crowd in awe to see that the challengers picking up the title via pinfall. However, the decision got reversed soon, and the champions were able to retain. But, there’s no denying that both the teams delivered to a big extent in their championship match. Benjamin and Gable are expected to keep their spot around the title picture, for now.

The returning segment for Becky Lynch was planned in a good way. She getting introduced to Smackdown Live received a very good reaction from the crowd, as the Riott Squad was taken out by Charlotte, Naomi, and Becky. Hopefully, the Irish Lass-kicker will be given the momentum needed by her side with the Wrestlemania season coming up.

The crowd reacted negatively with Xavier Woods picking up the win defeating Aiden English. Rusev Day is the hottest thing going around the WWE Universe, right now. But, the WWE officials are not at all interested to give them the needed wins, for now.

The main event between AJ Styles and Sami Zayn turned out to be a good one with the expected interference from Kevin Owens that led his friend win the contest. Later, the show was concluded with the blockbuster championship match announcement in a good fashion.

Overall, it was decent Smackdown to kick-off the year and here are the Twitter reactions:
