SmackDown Discussion Post: March 6th, 2018


Tonight on SmackDown Live, the SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair comes face-to-face with her opponent at Sunday’s Fastlane Ruby Riott.

Read‘s prevoew of tonight’s show below:

With Charlotte Flair and Ruby Riott both holding victories over their rival’s two closest allies, there’s only “one to go” for each Superstar when they clash for The Queen’s SmackDown Women’s Championship this Sunday at WWE Fastlane.

But before they lock up on Sunday, the two rivals will come face to face on SmackDown LIVE. What will the champion and the leader of The Riott Squad have to say? Will they be able to keep from brawling before their championship showdown?

Ms. Money in the Bank Carmella will also be in action as she takes on Becky Lynch:

Last Tuesday during SmackDown LIVE, Carmella was answering questions from the WWE Universe on social media, but soon turned to mocking Becky Lynch with Natalya. The Irish Lass Kicker didn’t take too kindly to the insults and issued a challenge to Ms. Money in the Bank.

The two continued to trade barbs on social media, with Lynch landing a particularly devastating blow on Twitter:

After SmackDown, head to Facebook Watch for this week’s episode of WWE’s Mixed Match Challenge that will see the team of Braun Strowman and Alexa Bliss take on the team of Jimmy Uso and Naomi:

It’s do or die when the Second Round of WWE Mixed Match Challenge continues tonight on Facebook Watch at 10 ET/7 PT, as the dominant tandem of Braun Strowman & Alexa Bliss going head-to-head with the dynamic husband/wife duo of Jimmy Uso & Naomi.

As demonstrated in their First Round win over Sami Zayn & Becky Lynch, “Team Little Big” personify in-ring annihilation. Braun Strowman entered the tournament as an already-established relentless Monster Among Men with a desire to leave nothing but a path of destruction in his wake. However, his newly-formed connection with The Goddess of WWE has allowed him to show other sides of his mammoth personality and made him that much more dangerous in the process. Four-time Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss is also the first woman to hold both the SmackDown and Raw Women’s Titles, and for good reason: Like her or hate her, Five Feet of Fury simply knows how to win and her ability to gel with the normally unapproachable Strowman has helped make their team one of the clear favorites in WWE Mixed Match Challenge.

Following their impressive First Round victory over Goldust & Mandy Rose, Jimmy Uso & Naomi have once again proven themselves to be dynamic personalities with explosive in-ring styles second to none. Jimmy is battled-tested as a tag team specialist, not only as one-half of the reigning SmackDown Tag Team Champions, but also as a five-time overall Tag Team Champion. Not to be outdone, Naomi is a two-time SmackDown Women’s Champion who recently competed in the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble Match. When you add in the natural chemistry of a loving married couple, you get a recipe for WWE MMC success, and they’ll be looking to welcome “Team Little Big” to the “Glowish Penitentiary.”
