The stakes were high for SmackDown Live this week as we are just five days away from Stomping Grounds. Following an great episode of RAW, the blue brand also delivered a good episode. We saw some decent matches with remarkable segments.
The Universal Champion Seth Rollins was the notable Wild Card entrant on SmackDown Live this week. The Beastslayer teamed up with WWE Champion Kofi Kingston to beat Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. Things got heated between Alexa Bliss and Bayley during 'A Moment of Bliss' as the former stood tall with the help of Nikki Cross.
Dolph Ziggler pinned Xavier Woods in a singles bout. The Miz got humiliated twice in two weeks. The A-Lister teamed up with R-Truth to take on Elias and Drew McIntyre. Heavy Machinery faced the B-Team, while Andrade assaulted Apollo Crews in the backstage area. Moreover, Drake Maverick won the 24/7 Title from R-Truth.
It was an exciting episode before Stomping Grounds. Here we discuss three things WWE secretly told us SmackDown Live this week.
Since introducing the 24/7 Title last month, it has garnered the attention of the WWE Universe. The belt can be defended 24 hours, as we have been seeing it in the last few weeks. We saw three champions on its first night.
R-Truth has been the holder of the belt for a long time, however, the belt changed hands a couple of times. He lost the title on blue brand this week when Drake Maverick pinned him and escaped with the title.
While leaving in the car, Drake mentioned that he will be champion when he will get married. Considering Drake's wedding is set to take place soon, we might see a twist. R-Truth might crash the wedding and pin Drake to become a six-time 24/7 Champion. Earlier, the belt changed hands in an airplane when R-Truth regained the belt from Jinder Mahal. Therefore, a title change at Drake Maverick's wedding cannot be ruled out.
