What will Roman Reigns do With Jimmy Uso?
Jimmy Uso has been pretty defiant as he has refused to acknowledge Roman as the Head of the Table and fall in line to follow Roman’s orders. Last week, we saw how Jimmy went out to prove that he can defeat Cesaro before Roman could, but the Tribal Chief interfered in the match before it could come to a conclusion.
Even after Roman has sent a message to Jimmy not to call or text him at all, it is clear that this is far from the end of this story. Also, it is widely speculated that Jimmy could end up facing Roman inside the Hell in a Cell in an “I Quit” match, just like Jey did last year. Will it be the case? Tune in tonight to SmackDown to find out.
Intercontinental Championship Fatal 4-Way Match
Intercontinental title will be on the line in a fatal 4-way match as Apollo Crews defends the title against Sami Zayn, Big E and Kevin Owens. This match is coming after continued rivalry between these four men since Apollo won the title at WrestleMania 37.
Can we expect a title change? Especially since Commander Azeez will in Apollo’s corner and could easily use the “No Disqualification” stipulation to interfere anytime during the match.
How will Cesaro Respond to Seth Rollins?
Seth Rollins took advantage of an already beaten-up Cesaro when he attacked after his match against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania Backlash. Rollins extensively attacked Cesaro’s arm, which was already injured during the match.
Cesaro has defeated Rollins twice in the last two months, but Rollins is not ready to move and wants to avenge those losses. How will Cesaro respond to the attack?
