WWE Smackdown Live: 3 things WWE quietly told us this week (26 March 2019)
- A list of talking points from Smackdown Live this week
Smackdown Live was anticipated to be an excellent show this week as we are just eleven days away from WrestleMania. Following a stupendous episode of RAW, the blue brand had some excellent matches. There were some unforeseen surprises this week, and the show definitely met the expectations of the fans.
There is no denying that the appalling incident this week was when the Smackdown Women's Championship changed hands. Surprisingly, Charlotte Flair defeated Asuka which was a rematch of WrestleMania 34. Kofi Kingston became the number one contender of the most coveted prize of the blue brand after Big E and Xavier Woods won a Tag Team Gauntlet match.
Smackdown Live held a dream match this week when AJ Styles tussled with Kurt Angle. It was the final match of Angle on Smackdown Live. However, Styles won the bout by disqualification after Randy Orton interfered with an RKO. The Miz challenged Shane McMahon in a Fall Counts Anywhere match at Metlife Stadium which was accepted by the latter, and the two men had a fierce segment.
Here we discuss three things WWE quietly told us on Smackdown Live this week:
#3 New Day could become Smackdown Tag Team Champions in New Jersey
The New Day has been the focal point of Smackdown Live in the last few weeks. Kofi Kingston gave a stellar performance last week when he defeated five superstars in Gauntlet match before being pinned by Daniel Bryan. The other two New Day members Xavier Woods and Big E were the stars of this week.
Following an unfair treatment of Kofi Kingston last week, the New Day threatened to quit WWE this week. Vince McMahon promised a WrestleMania match to Kofi Kingston, but Xavier and Big E needed to win a Tag Team Gauntlet match. The two men won the Gauntlet match after overpowering five other teams.
The victory in Tag Team Gauntlet match sent Kofi Kingston to WrestleMania 35, but the result could be also beneficial for Xavier Woods and Big E. Considering the Smackdown Tag Team Champions Usos still do not have an opponent in New Jersey, the two New Day members could be the next challengers.
In fact, the Usos took part in the Gauntlet match but New Day did not pin the twin brothers. Jimmy and Jay forfeited the match which suggests that they could be facing New Day. Xavier and Big E can win the twin belts at the Grandest Stage of Them All.
