WWE SmackDown – 5 Possible surprises – Roman Reigns involved in betrayal, Big return and face turn, Edge picks a major stipulation
Many say that WWE SmackDown is the best show from World Wrestling Entertainment’s extensive fare. WWE RAW is an hour too long and well, NXT just does not have the level of ‘urgency’ that the blue brand does.
WWE SmackDown has achieved this feat through consistent storytelling. And because no story makes you sit up and take notice without a few surprises, they’ve always had a few of those in their weekly offerings.
So here are 5 surprises that we think could significantly enhance the show this week. This is one person’s opinion, of course. If you have any thoughts on how to make WWE SmackDown a better show, feel free to voice your opinions in the comments below.
#5 Roman Reigns absolutely destroys Jimmy Uso on WWE SmackDown this week
Roman Reigns is not a happy camper after Edge took the fight to him in the final segment of WWE SmackDown last week and, well, won! He would need a scapegoat to aim his frustrations upon. In the absence of Jey Uso, Jimmy Uso could find himself on the receiving end of some of The Tribal Chief’s signature moves.
We have seen how much Jey Uso got elevated after his feud with Roman Reigns and there’s no reason why the same cannot be replicated with Jimmy!
Remember how Jimmy Uso, all jubilant, wanted to step out and celebrate his win with Roman Reigns, but just got brushed aside on WWE SmackDown last week
It could be a precursor to, a preview of the events that transpire on this week’s WWE SmackDown episode.
Do you think Jimmy Uso should be the next WWE Universal Champion? Will a Roman Reigns vs. Jimmy Uso feud make sense? Let us know in the comments section below.
#4 Edge wants Roman Reigns in a brutal match
Edge returned to WWE SmackDown last week and absolutely destroyed Roman Reigns. A simple match will not suffice after the setup and the fact that Edge has been pinned at WrestleMania already by the Tribal Chief.
Edge could make a demand to the WWE SmackDown powers-that-be that he wants Roman Reigns in an ‘I Quit’ match, or even a Chairs Match, at Money in the Bank 2021. It would really add a new dimension to the pay-per-view.
#3 As WWE SmackDown is about to close out, Jey Uso returns for revenge
Jey Uso knows that his relationship with Roman Reigns is formidable and absolutely dominant. He also knows that there’s something special when he teams up with his brother, Jimmy Uso.
Let’s assume that the surprise outlined in entry #5 actually happens, with Jimmy Uso being laid out on WWE SmackDown at the hands of Roman Reigns. Could Jey Uso return, turn face, and turn on his cousin on SmackDown this week? They could renew a rivalry that set the world on fire!
#2 Major arrival in the WWE SmackDown women’s division
Yes, she’s caused chaos on WWE SmackDown as RECKONING, when she was part of RETRIBUTION. But Mia Yim could make a major statement on this week’s show.
We know that the WWE SmackDown women’s side is a little short on numbers. We also know that they need participants for the upcoming Money in the Bank ladder match.
Mia Yim could announce her arrival on the show and maybe even score a victory on WWE SmackDown, earning herself a spot in the big upcoming match.
#1 Rey Mysterio and Dominik lose their titles
Catch WWE SmackDown Superstar Seth Rollins pay tribute to Rey Mysterio in this Sportskeeda Wrestling exclusive. Yes, the man actually breaks character to praise his nemesis.
As for Rey Mysterio and Dominik, they are currently nursing kayfabe injuries. Could they be stripped of the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championships considering that they may not be able to defend the titles? It frees them, upon their return, to go after Roman Reigns without holding the titles hostage in the process.
