SmackDownThis week’s episode of WWE SmackDown was a blast, starting with Ronda Rousey, but she was arrested for bad behavior. Furthermore, the women’s tag team tournament went ahead, while Sami Zayn missed out on a huge opportunity.
In Hit Row, Shayna Baszler was shown to be strong, while the main event saw a tremendous brawl. Keeping all these things in mind, in this article, let us know about the 5 big things that WWE has told in gestures through SmackDown this week.
#) Carrion Cross to cause Drew McIntyre’s defeat at WWE Clash at the Castle
Carrion Cross has been a major threat to undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and his next challenger, Drew McIntyre, since his return. This week on SmackDown, Krauss’ video package was shown, in which he also took a jibe at Roman Reigns and the Scottish Warrior.
Tribal Chiefs have been dominating all of their opponents so far, but this is unlikely to happen this time around as McIntyre will be performing in front of his home crowd in Clash at the Castle, so booking him for a clean defeat would be a mistake. A decision can be made. Cross is likely to be the champion’s next challenger, so his interference in the Roman Reigns vs Drew McIntyre match will come as no surprise.
#) Will there be a Sami Zayn-Kevin Owens vs The Usos match?
Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn had a backstage segment on SmackDown, in which the Tribal Chief offered Zayn to officially join The Bloodline, but he had to become the IC Champion. Let’s talk about Zen IC champions, they haven’t even been able to get a championship match.
Also Tribal Chief sent Jane to message Kevin Owens. Remind you that Zayn and Owens are real life friends and their team did a great job in WWE. Sami Zayn, meanwhile, seems to be upset with The Usos and now if he gets Owens’ support, then Zayn-Owens vs The Usos match could soon be seen.
#) The New Day may go on break for a while
The New Day and Viking Raiders feud has been brewing on SmackDown for the past few weeks, but this week the storyline has taken an interesting turn. In a recent episode of Blue Brand, Eric and Ivar were seen celebrating The New Day Funeral and burning their merchandise.
The New Day member Big E is already out due to a neck injury, while Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods have not been able to lead their team to a Tag Team Championship win for quite some time. In such a situation, his funeral is indicating that he can go on a break for some time.
#) WWE IC Championship Dream Match Announced
It’s been more than two months since Gunther became the IC Champion, but his big match was announced on a recent episode of SmackDown. This week saw the IC Championship No. 1 Contendership Match, with Sheamus, Sami Zayn, Happy Corbin, Ricochet and Madcap Moss vying for their claim.
Sheamus won the match to get the title shot against Gunther at Clash at the Castle. Sheamus has been one of the legendary champions of WWE and will be receiving tremendous support from his home fans at this event in the United Kingdom. Gunther and the Celtic Warrior have been part of several historic matches so far, and this dream match in Clash at the Castle is going to be a rage.
#) What’s the next step for Ronda Rousey?
This week SmackDown was started by Ronda Rousey, where she demanded Adam Pearce to remove her suspension, but it did not happen. Meanwhile, Rousey brutally beat up the security guards, after which he was arrested.
To remind you that Liv Morgan defended the SmackDown Women’s Title after a controversial defeat to Ronda Rousey at SummerSlam 2022, and Rousey’s attack on Morgan after the match showed that Rousey wanted to win her title again.
But in Clash at the Castle, Shayna Baszler is about to challenge Liv Morgan. Rousey, on the other hand, is currently trying to end his suspension. It is possible that Baszler may become the new champion in Clash at the Castle and if Rousey’s suspension is lifted after that then the WWE Universe is clearly going to have a Baszler vs Rousey dream match.
