WWE SmackDown: 5 things we learned from this week’s episode (December 4, 2018)
This week's episode of SmackDown was a treat to watch as there were some great matches and promos that highlighted Tuesday Night.
For the past few weeks, SmackDown has been the go-to show after the flagship show has disappointed fans week after week, and the star power of the blue brand is helping WWE stay in the game and build on the characters.
We witnessed a good contract signing segment to kick off the show as Asuka, Charlotte and Becky shared the same ring. The tag team match that followed showed a lot of potential between the four women.
As the night progressed, we witnessed some really good single’s matches but none was better than the main event between The Miz and AJ Styles which was nothing short of an A-grade match. Bryan continued his heel tactics after the match, leaving Styles screaming in pain to close out the night.
After watching the matches and how things unfolded carefully, we picked out 5 interesting things that we learned from the show last night. Let’s take a look at each one and analyze the same.
#5 Sonya Deville is in line for a push
Quite a few feuds have been teased for Sonya Deville, with the most recent one being between her and her teammate Mandy Rose. Yet, the feuds haven’t been fruitful for her and her recent one never played out as the creatives seem to have backed out of the opportunity.
Sonya Deville has improved a lot as compared to her initial days with Absolution. With very few top-level female wrestlers on SmackDown, there is a huge gap between Becky Lynch, Asuka, Charlotte, and Naomi and The IIconics, Carmella, Lana, and the others.
Deville can bridge that gap now as it seems like she is in line for a push. The first indication was her direct inclusion in Team SmackDown for Survivor Series over a lot of other options. Last night gave the second indication as she was given the honor of pinning Charlotte on SmackDown last night.
There is no doubt that the superstar deserves a push after improving a lot and giving some really good performances this year, and it seems like the push is coming soon for her.
