WWE is reside from the ThunderDome on the Yuengling Heart in Tampa, Florida, for tonight’s (Apr. 16) WrestleMania fallout episode of SmackDown.
Who can cease Roman Reigns?
Roman Reigns emphatically pinned each Edge and Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 37. Some followers are deciphering the dominant end as an indication that WWE is able to transfer on to a model new contender within the Common title scene. Cesaro may very well be the proper man for the job given his victory over Seth Rollins at WrestleMania.
However I wouldn’t be so positive that WWE is heading in a totally new route for Roman Reigns simply but. The identify of the subsequent pay-per-view is WrestleMania Backlash, in any case, which suggests that we’ll get a number of rematches or spinoffs of bouts that came about at WrestleMania 37. Edge has a legitimate gripe with the best way his match ended provided that he technically pinned Daniel Bryan too.
However that’s not even moving into the true travesty of justice at WrestleMania, which was Jey Uso’s continuous interference. The principle occasion of WrestleMania could have formally been a triple menace match, but it surely was in impact a ridiculously unfair 2 vs. 1 vs. 1 bout. Uso has finished this all all through Roman’s feuds with Kevin Owens and Daniel Bryan, and it must cease already. Reigns’ opponents both must smarten up and produce their very own allies to the desk to counteract Jey, or Adam Pearce & Sonya DeVille must step up and take motion in opposition to him. Jey Uso is ruining too many vital matches, and one thing must be finished about it.
Edge is the final word opportunist, so I anticipate that he’s not going to vanish from the title image so simply. Search for him to discover a approach to safe one other championship match with Roman at Backlash, this time with no Daniel Bryan or Jey Uso within the combine.
The title scene
The SmackDown Tag Staff titles can be on the road tonight when the Soiled Dawgs (Robert Roode & Dolph Ziggler) defend the belts in opposition to the Road Earnings. Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford have misplaced fairly a couple of matches of late, however that doesn’t actually matter when there are solely 4 tag groups in all the division.
Bianca Belair defeated Sasha Banks to grow to be the brand new SmackDown girls’s champion at WrestleMania. WWE is teasing that we’ll discover out what’s subsequent for Bianca with WrestleMania Backlash arising on Could 16. The sensible cash is that she’ll be defending her title on that card in opposition to both Sasha Banks, Bayley, Carmella, or some combo of the three.
Sticking with the ladies’s division, WWE Ladies’s Tag Staff champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler have been throughout WWE tv throughout the previous couple of months. They clashed with Tamina & Natalya on Night time Two of WrestleMania 37 and barely retained their belts. How will the longtime vets reply to coming inside seconds of the largest win of their careers at WrestleMania?
Huge E was screwed over by Uncooked Underground’s Dabba-Kato in the course of the Nigerian Drum struggle at WrestleMania 37, permitting Apollo Crews to win the Intercontinental title. The rumor mill means that Dabba-Kato’s new identify can be Commander Azeez. It actually doesn’t matter what Apollo calls his new ally, the underside line is that Massive Epsilon goes to be pissed off and seeking to kick each of their asses.
Different stuff to regulate
– Rey Mysterio goes one-on-one with Otis on tonight’s broadcast. WWE has recommended that the end result of this match might transfer one in all their groups nearer to a shot on the SmackDown tag crew titles. The end right here would possibly come right down to whichever one in all their teammates (Dominik Mysterio, Chad Gable) proves to be a simpler ringside tactician.
– Sami Zayn was embarrassed by each Logan Paul and Kevin Owens at WrestleMania 37. The almost certainly state of affairs is that it will solely ramp up his loopy conspiracy theories.
– Will tonight’s episode of SmackDown carry us any shock returns or NXT call-ups?
It’s the WrestleMania 37 fallout present!
