In what was possibly one of the most compelling Gauntlet matches in the company's tag-team history, Kofi Kingston is finally heading to WrestleMania to fight for his dreams.
Although his titanic victory last week fell flat when Vince McMahon decided to bring serious alterations to his unsettled Road to WrestleMania, Xavier Woods and Big E Langston's willingness to send their brother to fight for the most coveted prize in sports entertainment.
It was an incredible way to keep things intriguing heading into The Grandest Stage of Them All. A lot of things were scheduled for tonight with Kurt Angle's tussle with A.J. Styles getting the bigger spotlight.
The shocking factor, however, was to see Charlotte decimate Asuka for the SmackDown Women's Championship and besides the rumors that surrounded The Empress of Tomorrow of possibly being injured, WWE could very well be planning something huge for the women's main event at WrestleMania.
Some significant spotlight was thrown at Shane McMahon's current clash with The Miz. The A-Lister's quest to seek redemption from Shane O'Mac has now led to a stipulation being added to the bout.
Both the superstars will now lock horns in a Falls Count Anywhere which only confirms that Shane could be pulling off something huge at this year's visual extravaganza.
Regardless of what transpired, there are many things WWE vicariously told us through some of their segments and matches tonight. What were they? Let's find out.
Here are the 3 things WWE secretly told us on SmackDown Live:
As much as I hate to write this, Asuka has lost the SmackDown Women's Championship to Charlotte two weeks away from The Grandest Stage of Them All.
Whilst legions in the WWE Universe have criticized the decision in vehement fashion, some of them have endorsed the idea of making the WrestleMania bigger and better.
It's understandable why WWE would want to bring more eyes to the main event, but bringing at the expense of Asuka's reign as Champion felt completely disappointing.
Considering that Charlotte is now heading into WrestleMania representing the blue brand's throne, this could be a genuine possibility that the company unifies both the titles at the biggest event of the year.
If long-term prospect is anything to take here, then it certainly helps in strengthening the women's division and keeps an element of competition on the main roster.
