WrestleMania 35 is in the history books and many fans are already considering it one of the greatest 'Manias of all time.

With over 80,000 in attendance at the MetLife Stadium, and millions watching around the world, WWE hosted a tour-de-force that saw some classic moments.

From a shocking opener that saw the crowning of a new Universal Champion, to The Man coming around and claiming what was hers in the first ever women's main event in WrestleMania history, last night's spectacle was one to remember!

But for the men and women of the blue brand, there will be no rest for the wicked, as the WWE gets ready to host SmackDown Live.

With a new WWE Champion leading the show, expect plenty of shocks and surprises in just a few hours.

Here are 5 things you need to know before tonight's WWE SmackDown Live.

At WrestleMania 35, The Usos proved why they are one of the most decorated tag teams in WWE history.

Toppling the Bar, Aleister Black and Ricochet (or as I live to call them, BlackFlip), and Shinsuke Nakamura and Rusev, the Samoan Superstars retained their tag team titles in an exciting bout.

But just two days after this huge win, The Uso brothers will have to defend the SmackDown Tag Team titles against another blood-bonded pair.

The Hardyz.

The team of Matt and Jeff Hardy, of course, need no introduction and are considered by many the greatest tag team of all time.

Will the North Carolina natives add to their trophy cabinet, which is already groaning under the weight of championship gold, or will they become just the next inmates of the Uso penitentiary?
