SmackDown Discussion Post: January 30th, 2018


What will happen on tonight’s SmackDown Live! following Sunday’s historic Women’s Royal Rumble and debut of Ronda Rousey?

Read‘s preview of tonight’s show below:

“Ronda Rousey stunned the WWE Universe when she made her jaw-dropping arrival at Royal Rumble, confronting SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair, Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss and Women’s Royal Rumble Winner Asuka. Rousey made it clear that she is headed to WrestleMania, pointing at the sign and leaving many to wonder just what the future holds for “Rowdy” Ronda in WWE.”

After SmackDown Live, head over to Facebook Live for week three of WWE’s Mixed Match Challenge where the team of Alexa Bliss and Braun Strowman take on the team of Becky Lynch and Sami Zayn:

“Becky & Sami have a great chance to take the entire Mixed Match Challenge if they can just get on the same page. Since the moment they learned about their pairing, both Superstars have been working diligently to change their partner. Becky has attempted to bring out the “old Sami,” while Zayn has been actively trying to get Becky to embrace her angrier self. Though it is unclear at this point whose will has ultimately won, they need a cohesive strategy when they step in the ring with their first-round opponents tonight.

The formidable team of Strowman & Bliss personify in-ring dominance. Strowman is completely relentless and his only desire seems to be to leave a path of destruction in his wake. This past weekend at Royal Rumble, The Monster Among Men stood toe-to-toe with Universal Champion Brock Lesnar and Kane in a chaotic Triple Threat Match. His partner, Alexa Bliss, is a four-time Women’s Champion. She is also the first woman to hold both the SmackDown and Raw Women’s Titles and for good reason. Like her or hate her, the Goddess of WWE simply knows how to win.”
