WWE: Twitter Reactions to This Week’s Smackdown Live: January 23, 2018

It marked the last episode of Smackdown Live while hyping-up the 31st annual Royal Rumble PPV event. In comparison to WWE Raw, Smackdown lagged behind, but the overall effort was good with two main event matches which witnessed good story-telling.

The opener was pretty average, as we see these things on a weekly basis. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn returned after one week’s hiatus from the show to deliver a good promo on the upcoming WWE Championship match at the Royal Rumble PPV. AJ Styles interrupted to pitch yet another idea to Daniel Bryan and was forced to digest his own words. It was good to see the GM continuing his favouritism to the heels.

Although there is not much going on from the fans for the contenders of the Smackdown tag team championships, there’s no denying in their wrestling ability. Chad Gable continues to amaze every week with his freaking athletic skills and last night was no exception. We should wonder to see new tag champs on Sunday.

The match from the women’s division on Smackdown was below from average. A brawl was expected to break out after the match since the Royal Rumble match is coming up on Sunday. The interesting thing is that Charlotte Flair is saying it time and time again that she will see the winner of the Rumble at Wrestlemania which is a good indication of her reign continuing until the biggest event.

Nakamura and Corbin had decent singles match on the show which got disqualified with the presence of Randy Orton. The crowd was in awe to see the Viper struck with an RKO to Nakamura. Their excitement continued, as he delivered another RKO to the heel Corbin making a huge statement before Royal Rumble.

It was a surprise to see Kevin Owens getting the pinfall loss in such a short time. However, it set up the story well for the next match where Sami Zayn delivered a solid match against the champion. It is the second time in few weeks that he pinned Styles shifting the way towards the heels who might become the co-WWE Champions at Royal Rumble.
