3 Hints WWE dropped on the first SmackDown of the year (3 January 2020)
- A couple of things were hinted on the first SmackDown of 2020
#1 The New Day have new challengers
The Miz was involved in the Universal Championship storyline, but he will not be part of the storyline after losing the triple threat match last week. The A-Lister wrestled the former WWE Champion as well as on half of the current SmackDown Tag Team Champions, Kofi Kingston. It was a great match, but The Miz lost the bout.
A shocking incident took place after the match when The Miz tried attacking Kingston and indicated a heel turn. However, Big E prevented The Miz from doing any significant damage. With the heel turn of The Miz, it is clear that he has started a new feud with The New Day, who are babyfaces.
The Miz can't take on the SmackDown Tag Team Champions alone, and hence, his possible tag team partner was hinted on SmackDown this week. When Cathy Kelly was proceeding to take an interview of The Miz; John Morrison, a former tag team partner of The Miz, came out of his room, showing signs of a possible reunion. Returning to the company after a gap of eight years, Morrison could align with his former tag team partner, and they might challenge The New Day for a SmackDown Tag Team Championship match at Royal Rumble.
