Sheamus takes on Solo Sikoa. Check below for the complete preview and match card for WWE SmackDown December 30, 2022 episode.
Cena & Owens Take on The Bloodline
Roman Reigns has reigned supreme for more than two years now. However, Sami Zayn being in The Bloodline is most interesting part of his run as the Tribal Chief. Kevin Owens, Sami’s old friend, is hell bent on taking on Roman Reigns. Roman put out a challenge for Owens for a tag team match and allowed Owens to choose a tag team partner. Roman himself will have Sami Zayn as his partner.
And who does Owens turn towards to team up with? Owens messaged John Cena who was already scheduled to appear on the show, but he will now team up with Owens. How does the match turn out to be? Will the rest of the Bloodline interrupt the match? Does Owens have a specific plan in mind for Roman or Sami?
Sheamus vs Solo Sikoa
Another Bloodline rivalry will continue as Sheamus takes on Solo Sikoa. These two men came to odds during a 5-way #1 contender match for the Intercontinental title. A singles match followed up next week where Sikoa was able to get a win after distraction from the Bloodline. Sheamus was then injured in post-match attack. Three months have passed since where the Brawling Brutes and The Bloodline have continued fighting. Now, they will clash once again.
Ronda Rousey Defends Against Raquel Rodriguez
Raquel Rodriguez became the #1 contender for SmackDown Women’s Championship by winning a Gauntlet match where she also passed through Shayna Baszler as the last hurdle. She will now face-off with Ronda Rousey this week for the title. Will she be able to dethrone Ronda or will Shayna help Ronda out on this?
