After presenting a RAW after 'Mania that was quite tame in comparison to the episodes of RAW after WrestleMania in previous years, WWE presented a fun episode of SmackDown. It felt more like the fallout episode of WrestleMania than RAW.
SmackDown was fast-paced from start to finish. WWE not only celebrated two champions but also gave us new champions. Furthermore, we were given great teases to epic rivalries, and the show warmed us up for the Superstar Shake-up next week. In short, the blue brand again outdid its red counterpart.
Here, we discuss three biggest things we noted from the SmackDown after WrestleMania.
#1 The Usos could be heading to RAW
SmackDown LIVE gave us a pleasant chance to witness two of the greatest tag teams in history battle each other for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship. The Usos after successfully defending their championship in a Fatal-4-Way battle at 'Mania, had the task to defend their titles against The Hardy Boyz. Surprisingly, they lost.
There are two important things to note here. Firstly, the win for the Hardy Boyz could be a start to their last title run. Both men have certainly slowed down in the ring, which isn't surprising, given the extreme style of wrestling these two men have done over the years.
Secondly, the loss for the Usos suggests that they may be heading to RAW. The move makes sense since the Usos have been the pillar of the SmackDown tag division for quite some time, and have faced and had great matches with every tag team the blue brand has to offer.
A move to RAW would not only give them new opponents, but also gives RAW a tag team that will be Hall of Famers someday.
