For two straight weeks, SmackDown Live beat RAW in terms of viewership, during the Holidays. The last episode saw RAW score a victory, albeit not by much. RAW needed a stacked roster with Lesnar, Hogan, Strowman, and Cena to achieve the same. How does SmackDown Live bounce back?

The answer is actually quite simple if you think about it. A few surprises here and there and the audience will be begging for more. I will suggest a few of them in this article.

Be sure to let me know if what surprises you would like to see on the show? Go absolutely wild because this is just a speculative article.

Here are 5 surprises that I think should happen.


#5 Asuka turns heel

This is the only way to build heat before their match

We learned last week that Becky Lynch would be taking on Asuka at the Royal Rumble. This is guaranteed to be a good match, but does it necessarily mean that the crowd will be invested in seeing two of their favourites slug it out? I think one of them needs to turn heel for the crowd to care about the match at all.

Right now, there is no way that the crowd will boo Becky Lynch. If Becky Lynch were to attack an old woman, it would be the old woman and not her that would get booed. That's just an indication of how red-hot she is at the moment, in her run as 'The Man'.

Having Asuka turn heel would also freshen up her character as she's portrayed a babyface ever since she made her NXT debut. This would change up the dynamics of the match and could help WWE tell a story before their Royal Rumble match.
