A single word - "HER. ⚡️" - was all it took to stir up anticipation for tonight's episode of WWE SmackDown, as tweeted by Charlotte Flair. Emanating from the hallowed ground of the Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky, this week's SmackDown promises to be an explosive show.
Making a grand return, Roman Reigns is expected to resolve the discord within The Bloodline, his familial team that has been reeling under internal conflict. The show also includes a Tag Team Gauntlet match that will decide the next adversaries for Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens, the holders of the Undisputed Tag Team Championships.
Meanwhile, in another electrifying bout, Zelina Vega of the Latino World Order (LWO) will go head-to-head against IYO SKY from Damage CTRL.
Flair's Anticipated SmackDown Appearance
Yet, the prime focus of the evening revolves around the much-awaited appearance of "The Queen" Charlotte Flair on "The Grayson Waller Effect." Recently returning to the blue brand, Flair did not hold back in challenging WWE Women's Champion Asuka upon her receiving the new championship.
The cryptic, single-word tweet from Flair has since sent the WWE Universe into a frenzy. However, the saga doesn't end here. Wrestling legend Jim Cornette posits that Bianca Belair, another top competitor, may turn heel following the events of last week's SmackDown.
Despite being promised a rematch for the title by WWE official Adam Pearce, Belair witnessed Pearce permitting Flair to interrupt Asuka's title presentation and challenge her for the championship. This unexpected move has ignited speculation about a potential heel turn for Belair.
On the Jim Cornette Experience, the 61-year-old wrestling icon expressed his thoughts. "And then Charlotte challenges Asuka and Asuka screams and gargles yes... Think they gonna switch Bianca heel? Because she's not happy," he mused.
The professional wrestling landscape might be heading for a seismic shift as the WWE Universe looks forward to tonight's episode of SmackDown. After all, it's these unpredictable twists and turns that make WWE a continually captivating spectacle. As fans, all we can do is watch, wonder, and await what happens next.
