Kofi’s WrestleMania win was the best WrestleMania moments in recent years. After the wins, they were so excited that they did not even wait till Tuesday to celebrate and invaded RAW. But they will celebrate again on Tuesday with the SmackDown crowd. Expect the next direction for Kofi to emerge from this segment.

How will The Miz bounce back after crushing loss to Shane McMahon?

Although Miz might have completely owned Shane McMahon at WrestleMania in the Falls Count Anywhere Match to the point that Shane started begging him, he still lost after Shane landed on top of him from his superplex off the 20 feet high platform. Miz already responded that he does not consider it as the loss as he was the superior man.

The Usos and The Hardy Boyz square off for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles

After successfully defending their title at WrestleMania in a Fatal 4-Way match, the Usos will again put their title on the line when they will face the Hardy Boyz at SmackDown this week. This match was supposed to take place at WrestleMania, but for some reason that plan was changed. And it will after a long time that two face teams will go against each other.

Will the target on Becky Lynch’s back get even bigger?

Becky was not even done celebrating her victory at RAW when Lacey Evans started rolling her eyes over the titles. Even the perrinial jobber Dana Brooke expressed that she will go after Becky. If RAW was any indication for what awaits for Becky next, SmackDown might be even harder with her usual foes like Charlotte and Asuka.

How IIconic will SmackDown LIVE be?

The IIconics winning the Women’s Tag Team titles was one of the most shocking result coming out of WrestleMania. But the result should never have been discounted due to the chaotic nature of the Fatal 4-Way match and the guille of the Australians. While the RAW and SmackDown Tag Team Champions were asked to defend their titles this week, will it be the same case for the Women’s champions also?

What more to expect?

  • Some more returning stars
  • Aleister Black and Ricochet (seriously those guys have almost been to every show in last one month or so)
