In this article, we will take a look at things that can transpire on SmackDown tonight. So, without further ado, let’s begin.
#1 WWE Draft 2020 kicks off with SmackDown tonight
We are finally all set for the much-awaited WWE event, Draft 2020. As confirmed by the promotion, this year's Draft will go kick off with tonight's episode of SmackDown. It would be an understatement to say that the entire WWE Universe is curious to find out who will be the No. 1 Draft pick this year.
There are several reports suggesting that the first WWE Superstar to be drafted this year will be Roman Reigns. Given the fact that he is the reigning Universal Champion and the hottest entity in not just SmackDown -- but also the entire WWE -- it would be difficult to argue otherwise. Moreover, this is exactly the position in which WWE always hoped that Reigns would be and he is bound to be roped in by the blue brand.
Reigns returned to WWE at SummerSlam after spending months away from in-ring action as a precaution against Covid-19. As soon as he came back on SmackDown, Reigns had his eyes set on the Universal Championship. He also formed a shocking alliance with Paul Heyman, and it eventually ensured a good storyline for him moving forward.
After Reigns picked a victory over 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman, he started feuding with Jey Uso. The two cousins battled it out to prove their worth inside the squared circle, turning them against each other and exposing Reigns’ brutal side in the process. Their rivalry was well received by the fans, and both Superstars are expected to lock horns once again in the future.
