• Vince McMahon’s Involvement On Last Night’s SmackDown
According to PWInsider, Vince McMahon wasn’t backstage at last night’s SmackDown, but made some changes to the show’s script.
There are very different versions within the company about the depth of these changes.
Some WWE Officials believe that Vince will only attend those shows that are held in the Northeast.
Below are the major highlights from last night’s SmackDown:
– After pinning LA Knight, Xavier Woods is coming for Gunther’s Intercontinental Championship.
– The Draft will take place on April 28th SmackDown and May 1st RAW.
– Chelsea Green is back after being hospitalized after WrestleMania 39. Her & Sonya Deville will challenge Liv Morgan & Raquel Rodriguez for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship on next week’s show.
– Karrion Kross is targeting Shinsuke Nakamura.
– Paul Heyman announced that The Usos will face Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship in a WrestleMania 39 rematch on the April 28th episode of SmackDown.
Heyman said it’s a guarantee that Owens & Zayn will lose the Titles, because Roman Reigns is losing patience with the two of you, but Heyman said that while looking at The Usos from behind them (so they couldn’t see).
– Solo Sikoa destroyed Matt Riddle.
