A counter offer issued, a superstar is rising, and a reunion in Smackdown


On Friday Night Smackdown, the Bloodline opened up the show responding to Cody Rhodes' challenge.  The Rock revealed a counter offer for a tag team match at Day One of WrestleMania 40.  It would be The Rock and Roman Reigns versus Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins.  Should Rhodes win, there will be no interference at Day Two WrestleMania main event.  However, should the Bloodline win, they will do everything in their powers to prevent Rhodes to finish the story.  

Tiffany Stratton defeated Naomi in an impressive match.  Since her debut, she keeps winning especially taking out Naomi, a former world champion.  

Dakota Kai turned her back on Baily during a tag team match against the Kabuki Warriors.  Baily received a beating of her lifetime.  The biggest question is who will aid Baily during her quest to WrestleMania for the WWE Women's Championship.  

It may seem that Jade Cargill may enter the storyline and help Baily.  A quick stare down happened back stage between Cargill and Damage CTRL.  But Smackdown General Manager Nick Aldis intervened and needed Cargill for something.
