After Monday Night Raw delivered a pretty disappointing episode, all eyes will be upon the blue brand to light this week with some fine blend of wrestling and entertainment.

With the Road to WrestleMania 35 gaining momentum, WWE could be looking to drop a bombshell on SmackDown Live to get things moving despite receiving such backlash for Raw.

Since more emphasis will be laid upon the #1 Contender's match for the SmackDown Women's Championship, there's a genuine possibility that something controversial would transpire in this bout.

Only two matches have been announced for the show with huge championship implications. The second one will see the Usos lock horns with the Bar in order to earn a future Championship opportunity at the gold.

Considering how clinical SmackDown Live has been, what could Vince McMahon be planning for tonight? Let's find out.

Here are the 5 biggest things WWE could be planning for SmackDown Live.

#1 Rusev announces a U.S. Championship Open Challenge which is answered by Mustafa Ali

With Rusev finally winning the United States Championship from Shinsuke Nakamura, the fans are expecting the Bulgarian Brute to appear in a more major role on the blue brand.

Considering that he is currently working as a face with his wife Lana, there's a genuine possibility that the company books him to throw a U.S. Championship Open Challenge.


Since there are many competitors yearning to get their shot at the gold, this could prove to be a solid opportunity for SmackDown to bring something refreshing on screen.

Where Monday Night Raw has constantly failed, SmackDown Live can prove a point by delivering a fantastic match between Rusev and Mustafa Ali.

While Ali was expected to lock horns with Daniel Bryan in the future, he could really carry a sensational match with the US Champion and deliver something good to the fans.

The end, however, could be interrupted by the King of Strong Style who is willing to get his gold back, with the finish also protecting Ali in the process.
