Smackdown Review 02.05
The Road to WrestleMania started after the Royal Rumble. Edge and Bianca Belair have not mentioned who will be their opponent at WrestleMania 37. Edge had visited Raw and NXT with no decision. He has flirted with Drew McIntyre, the WWE Champion, and Finn Balor, NXT Champion. That did not suit well for Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
Bianca Belair seemed to have her eyes on the prize, but why make the decision so soon? We can thank Reginald to prevent Belair's decision as I recap and predict Smackdown.
As I mentioned in the beginning, Edge is the 2021 Royal Rumble winner. In Smackdown, he made his presence. After visiting Raw and NXT, he stepped foot into Smackdown. The R-Rated Superstar was more likely to decide until Roman Reigns interrupted. Reigns, a former Royal Rumble winner, knows what is at stake. The winner has to choose. Somehow, being the head of the table made it seem that he can force anyone to make a choice. Kevin Owens came out of nowhere and assaulted Reigns with a stunner.
Prediction: Just as I thought Owens and Reigns' chapter was over, the continuation of their feud exists. What could be best for business? Edge versus Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 37 should be the main event. Regardless of the same signature moves, Reigns is the top superstar in the company. Edge is the Hall of Fame superstar who is seeking to win the title that he never lost. In my opinion, Drew McIntyre and Finn Balor are not the right fit at the moment. Besides, Karrion Kross made it known that Finn Balor will not be the champion before WrestleMania 37. And if anyone knows Kross, he is unstoppable.
Bianca Belair is another superstar that won the 2021 Royal Rumble. She has a decision to make, and I am sure (90% confidence) that she will choose Sasha Banks. The EST of WWE can push the Boss out of the way, a similar way as she handled Bayley. Consequently, Carmella does not know what defeat means. She and Reginald have other plans as they try to persuade Belair to aim at another champion, WWE Raw Women's Champion, Asuka.
Prediction: Belair is fearless. She has faced many obstacles in her career and life. Belair is EST for a reason. Therefore, Belair versus Banks for WrestleMania 37 is best for business.
