4 Twists we could see on WWE SmackDown Live
The first live episode of SmackDown for 2019 comes tonight. The McMahons are in charge and have promised big changes to the product. Could we see any of these changes tonight?
With the hope that SmackDown may truly be shaken up, let's take a look at some twists WWE could treat us to.
#4 AJ Styles reforms The Club
As you probably know, former WWE Champion AJ Styles met Mr. McMahon backstage at the end of WWE SmackDown a couple of weeks ago. Vince told Style to dig deep inside and show him his darker side and in order to motivate him a little more, he smacked Styles on the head. AJ didn't take this lying down and struck Vince back.
Last week on Smackdown, it was clear that Styles wasn't happy with the McMahons. What could be next for AJ Styles? He could take Vince's advice and run his way through the SmackDown roster especially if he brings The Club back. Gallows and Anderson aren't really doing much right now and this could give them something to sink their teeth into.
#3 Becky Lynch attacks Carmella and Charlotte
We got a backstage segment last week on SmackDown where Triple H asked WWE SmackDown Women's Champion Asuka who she wanted to face next. They were duly interrupted by Charlotte Flair, Carmella and Becky Lynch who all tried to stake their claim.
This week's episode of SmackDown could see WWE write Becky off the title scene on the blue brand so that she's free to enter the women's Royal Rumble match. How does WWE do this? They could have Becky attack both Charlotte Flair and Carmella, forcing management to pull her from contention for Asuka's title.
