A new episode of SmackDown will air tonight from the WWE ThunderDome in Tampa, Florida.
Last week’s show ended with Universal Champion Roman Reigns telling Cesaro that he won’t get a Title match, after which a huge Title match between Reigns and Daniel Bryan’s with Bryan’s career on SmackDown on the line was announced.
Bayley vowed to defeat SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair at WrestleMania Backlash, while Apollo Crews retained the Intercontinental Championship against Kevin Owens.
In addition, Aleister Black returned to TV as a vignette aired for him last week. Tamina defeated Women’s Tag Team Champion Nia Jax, and Dominik & Rey Mysterio defeated The Alpha Academy.
In this article, let’s take a look at 5 things that might happen on SmackDown tonight.
5. Apollo Crews Retains The Intercontinental Championship
Big E will get his Intercontinental Championship rematch against Apollo Crews on tonight’s SmackDown.
Since Crews won the Title recently, it’s unlikely that he’ll drop it tonight.
WWE will probably have Big E almost win the match, but Commander Azeez will then cause a distraction to help Crews retain the Title.
A rematch between them may be announced for WrestleMania Backlash in the coming weeks.
