Match Card & Storyline
Brock Lesnar vs Ricochet – WWE Championship
The feud between WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and Ricochet started before Royal Rumble. On 20 January RAW, Paul Heyman was doing a promo where he wondered if anyone will dare to stand up to Lesnar in the Royal Rumble match. Ricochet came out after this and stood face to face with Lesnar. Lesnar hit a low blow on Ricochet and left.
At Royal Rumble, Lesnar was dominating after entering at #1. Ricochet entered the match at #15 and Lesnar was able to dominate him. After Drew McIntyre entered at #16, Lesnar got focused on him. Ricochet hit a low blow on Lesnar from behind and it led to McIntyre eliminating Lesnar from the Royal Rumble.
On 3 February 2020 episode of RAW, Ricochet defeated Bobby Lashley and Seth Rollins in a triple threat match to become the #1 contender to face Brock Lesnar at WWE Super Showdown.

Goldberg appeared on 21 February SmackDown episode to hype the match. Wyatt interrupted him from the screen with Firefly Fun House.

Naomi made a return to WWE after 6 months at the Royal Rumble. On the following SmackDown, Bayley claimed that she had beaten every woman on the roster and there are no challengers left for her. Naomi interrupted her and reminded that Bayley had never beaten her in a singles match.
WWE booked a fatal four-way match to determine Bayley’s next opponent. Carmella won the match pinning Naomi and faced Bayley for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion on the 14 February episode.

The Miz was going through a face to heel transition as he was coming out of the feud with Bray Wyatt. His next feud started with the New Day as he faced Kofi Kingston in a losing cause. The Miz was visibly frustrated with the loss but we were in for a surprise when John Morrison was found at Miz’s door at backstage afterward.
Next week, Morrison made his full return to SmackDown with the MizTV. A feud with The New Day and former Dirt Sheet Duo started during that segment. Miz would go on to defeat Kofi on the same night on SmackDown. The animosity between the two teams increased as John Morrison also defeated both Big E and Kofi in the coming weeks on SmackDown.
