WWE SmackDown Preview: 15 January 2019
RAW was a pretty good show this week, and SmackDown Live will look to continue the momentum that the red brand built up across the three hours. The good news is that SmackDown Live has consistently been putting out good shows, in the weeks past.
This article will give you a glimpse of what you can expect on this week's edition of SmackDown Live. Some of the predictions stem from the segments that have already been announced on WWE.com. The others come from having watched and followed the show over the past few weeks and reviewing it for my 'Best and Worst' column.
What do you personally expect from this week's episode of SmackDown Live? Let me know in the comments.
Here's my attempt to get you excited for this week's episode of SmackDown Live.
#5 Carmella takes on Sonya Deville
Carmella has had a very strange WWE journey recently. While she had a fantastic heel run with James Ellsworth by her side, she has transitioned seamlessly into a babyface and has become a crowd favourite alongside her Mixed Match Challenge partner, R-Truth. This week, she takes on a very tough competitor in Sonya Deville.
She goes up against a woman who's been gradually climbing up the ranks on the blue brand, over the last few weeks with her incredible MMA prowess. Sonya Deville will look to mix it up with Carmella in a match that can potentially launch both women to the next level. Moreover, could it have future implications on the Women's Tag Team Championship picture?
We know that Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville are a team. Could Carmella become Naomi's tag team partner?
