Smackdown Discussion Post: April 10th, 2018

Charlotte Flair is coming off of her Wrestlemania win tonight. She was able to defeat the 914 day reign of the empress of tomorrow, Asuka. With Asuka not being on RAW last night, will she show up on the blue brand tonight as a Superstar Shake-Up happens next week? It will be interesting to see if Carmella cashes in tonight as well, as she did not attempt at Wrestlemania or RAW. Lastly, will Naomi‘s win at Wrestlemania push her towards a title shot?

Per WWE read their preview below:

Having firmly proved that she was indeed ready for Asuka, SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair now stands atop the mountain as the definitive Queen of WWE. Who will step up to challenge Flair? Could we see Naomi, the winner of the first-ever WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal, shine her glow the Queen’s way? Or, could the likes of The Riott Squad or Becky Lynch make a power play for the top spot on Team Blue? And when will Carmella look to strike with her Money in the Bank contract?

Flair took to Twitter just recently before Smackdown gets underway:

WWE.com also looks into any possible debuts that may take place tonight following last night’s Monday Night Raw:

#RawAfterMania saw NXT standouts like The Authors of Pain, No Way Jose and Ember Moon make their debuts on the red brand, but does that mean SmackDown LIVE can expect new faces to arrive as well? Historically, Team Blue has also had its share of surprises, so is it possible SmackDown LIVE will see new faces emerge one week before the Superstar Shake-up?
