Smackdown Preview and Prediction 04.10
Braun Strowman is the new Universal Champion. The Monster Among Men defeated Goldberg after surviving four vicious spears. Strowman resiliently overcame the spears and countered with four consecutive power slams. The last one was the running power slam that put an end to Goldberg.
Strowman was a replacement for Roman Reigns who pulled out of WrestleMania due to health issues surrounded by a pandemic. Strowman will be on tonight to show off his title.
On Monday NIght RAW, the new WWE Champion defended the title to Big Show, minutes after winning the title from Brock Lesnar. What will happen to Strowman on Smackdown? Will Jeff Hardy or Sheamus try to be next for the champ? Stroman did lose a handicap match to Sami Zayn, Cesaro, and Shinsuke Nakamura and lost the Intercontinental title. Could they come out and interrupt Strowman and see the same results?
Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross defeated the Kabuki Warriors at WrestleMania to become the new and two-time tag team champions. On Smackdown, they will have a rematch with the titles on the line.
It seems strange for a rematch because Asuka had a singles match on RAW defeating Liv Morgan. She rejoins with Kairi Sane to try to recapture the titles. At this moment, there are no women superstars that are tag team material. But, what if the "IICONICS" make their presence? Will they somehow appear on the show? And what will happen if Asuka and Sane lose? Will, they split?
Other superstars that can be seen on the show as follows:
Elias defeated King Corbin. Corbin argued with the referee and was caught from behind and pinned. Could they have a rematch?
Sami Zayn remained as the Intercontinental Champion. Being that Zayn is more of a talker, could we again see Daniel Bryan, Drew Gulak vs Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura? Or, will there be other plans at hand?
The Miz and John Morrison remain tag team champions. With the Miz not in action at WrestleMania, we may not see them on television. What would be next for The New Day and The Usos?
Otis defeated Dolph Ziggler. He got the girl and received the kiss. It was a glamorous night for Otis. Robert Roode may not be in the studio so I do not expect a tag team match between Roode/Ziggler vs Heavy Machinery. However, could we see a singles match between Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville?
The Fiend defeated John Cena in a Firefly Fun House match. Will we find out what happened to Cena? And who will "The Fiend" target next?
Finally, who is the hacker behind the scenes?
There are so many questions and very little answers to receive in a 2-hour episode on Smackdown on FOX.
