3 Biggest Things WWE could be planning for SmackDown Live this week (14 May 2019)
Money in the Bank is one week away, and the anticipation is sky-high for the pay-per-view. Owing to substandard ratings, WWE came up with some surprising arcs last week. Vince McMahon introduced the Wild Card Rule, and four superstars will be allowed to appear on the other brand henceforth.
AJ Styles and Sami Zayn showed up on SmackDown Live through the Wild Card Rule. As a matter of fact, the two men got a WWE Title shot and they main-evented the show last week. The Usos also appeared from RAW and competed for the vacant SmackDown Tag Team Titles. The Miz assaulted Shane McMahon, but The B-Team outnumbered the former.
Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose defeated the team of Ember Moon and Carmella in a tag team match. The bout between Ali and Andrade ended in a no contest after interference from Randy Orton. The next SmackDown Live will take place in London, England. The company will leave no stone unturned to provide a great episode of the blue brand before Money in the Bank.
Here we discuss three things WWE could be planning for SmackDown Live this week.
#3 Lars Sullivan's first main roster match could be announced for Money in the Bank
Lars Sullivan is being positioned as a very threatening presence on the main roster. The Freak has taken WWE by storm since his debut on the RAW after WrestleMania, and he has been unstoppable.
Sullivan made a statement after attacking legendary superstars from the past. Apart from taking down Kurt Angle, Sullivan also dismantled popular superstars Hardy Boyz, Rey Mysterio and Chad Gable. Jeff Hardy got injured due to the ambush, and Matt Hardy will be aiming to take redemption. Moreover, we saw R-Truth aligning with Hardy after suffering an attack at the hands of Sullivan.
Sullivan attacked Matt Hardy and R-Truth in the backstage area last week. The company might have a motive behind this storyline, and we could see the main roster debut of Sullivan. The Freak looks set to face off against Hardy and Truth in a Handicap Match at Money in the Bank, and the announcement could be made on SmackDown Live this week.
