Daniel Bryan will face The Fiend at Royal Rumble

The first WWE SmackDown of the year is set to focus on the WWE Universal Championship match between Daniel Bryan and The Fiend that will happen at Royal Rumble. Last week, Bryan survived a triple threat match against King Corbin and The Miz to earn this opportunity and now he has another encounter with Bray Wyatt.

Although anyone would think twice before stepping inside the squared circle with the current WWE Universal Champion, Daniel Bryan seems to be an exception and it will be interesting to see what the coming SmackDown adds to this rivalry. On the other hand, how will King Corbin respond to Roman Reigns costing him the Championship match?

Braun Strowman has made it clear that he wants a shot at Shinsuke Nakamura's Intercontinental Championship. Sami Zayn has been evading the challenge for some time but with Strowman and The New Day defeating him, Nakamura and Cesaro last week, the title match seems imminent. Will the collision take place on the first episode of SmackDown in 2020?

SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley and Sasha Banks have been entangled in a feud with Lacey Evans. They got a victory over the Sassy Southern Belle in a tag team match but it remains to be seen if either of them can defeat Evans one-on-one.

Also, how will Otis react to Dolph Ziggler destroying the cake that he had gifted to Mandy Rose? Guess you'll have to tune in to find out!
