3 Things we could see on the first SmackDown episode of the year (3 January 2020)
#2 Sonya Deville turns on Mandy Rose
Fire & Desire, consisting of Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose, have been together for quite a while. They made their debut on the main roster with Paige (the trio was known as Absolution). Even after Paige's departure, they have been a tag team for a long time, challenging for the Women's Tag Team Championship in the past.
Since the tag team belts are on RAW at the moment, both the ladies have not been involved in a major storyline of late. Although both have taken on Carmella in separate singles matches in the past few weeks, there has been nothing substantial for either of the two to build on.
When Deville lost to The Princess of Staten Island two weeks ago, Rose wasn't by her side. To return the favor, the latter also didn't accompany the former to the ringside last week.
Since they weren't there for each other in the past couple of weeks, it is clear that there is a disagreement between the two best friends, and it's only a matter of time before they turn on each other. A betrayal could lead to an interesting rivalry, and it just might happen on this week's episode.Published 03 Jan 2020, 11:40 IST
