Tribal Court Trial of Roman Reigns
The Usos defeated Roman Reigns & Solo Sikoa at Money in the Bank where Jey pinned Roman for the first time in three and a half years. After this win, The Usos took to Twitter to announce that they would put the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns on trial in the Tribal Court at Madison Square Garden. But do they have the authority to put The Tribal Chief on trail? Or will they call on any senior Bloodline member? And how will it lead to Roman vs Jey at SummerSlam 2023?
Sheamus vs Austin Theory
Last week, Austin Theory defeated Ridge Holland in a non-title match. However, he continued to beat Holland after the match, and hence Sheamus came down to make the save. Later, it was announced that Austin Theory would put his United States title on the line against Sheamus this Friday. Will Sheamus become the 4-time US Champion here?
Karrion Kross vs AJ Styles
AJ Styles defeated Karrion Kross on the May 19 episode of SmackDown. However, Kross kept targeting Styles. Kross and Scarlett then defeated Michin & AJ Styles in a mixed tag-team match last week after Kross choked out Styles. These two are set to have a rematch this week. Will Styles be able to win the single contest again?
The Grayson Waller Effect with Edge
WWE Hall of Famer Edge will return to SmackDown at the Madison Square Garden as he is set to be the guest at the Grayson Waller Effect. This segment is supposed to kickstart Edge’s feud for SummerSlam. Who do you think will confront the Rated-R Superstar?
What Else to Expect?
Bianca Belair attacked Asuka during her title defense against Charlotte Flair last week in London. Bianca did not leave Flair also and sent her into the announce table. Will Flair get another chance at the title? Or Bianca skip the queue to get a title shot himself?
Iyo Sky is the Ms. Money in the Bank now. She confronted Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley on RAW. But, was that a ruse to catch WWE Women’s Champion Asuka off guard?
