The top SmackDown Rumour backstage can have a major impact in this week. SmackDown got a new direction starting this week after a spectacular Survivor series.
There are high chances of a match between Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens at the TLC pay-per view. However, the feud between these two might be a short term plan as at the Royal Rumble, WWE has someone else in mind to face The Tribal Chief.
The backstage ‘mess’ that happened on SmackDown this week will be the focus of this article. We will also be focusing on how Brock Lesnar broke The Undertaker’s WrestleMania Streak with the assistance of Roman Reigns.
So, here are the biggest rumors surrounding Smackdown superstars
Reason behind brock Lesner being chosen to end Undertaker’s streak
The unthinkable happened at WrestleMania, when Brock Lesnar defeated The Undertaker. The WWE Universe came to a standstill when the undefeated streak of the Deadman was broken. The reason behind Lesnar going over to WrestleMania was linked to SmackDown Superstar Roman Reigns.
“McMahon’s idea for the Lesnar win, leading to reigns getting revenge for the fans on the guy who broke the streak idea fell apart when the crowd was so against Reigns in the build for Lesnar in 2015.”
After his return, Jimmy Uso to get a major push on SmackDown Rumour
During his current singles run, Jey Uso has impressed everyone from critics to fans. Even though throughout his career Jey remained a tag-team player, he gained all the spotlight on himself due to his brother’s absence for injury.
Vince McMahon has also been impressed including everyone at the backstage and will be having the spotlight on Jey. As soon as Jimmy makes his return in the ring, he’s going to get a big push.
To elevate the Roman Reigns remains the main goal. However WWE is also planning to give a major push to The Usos, the 6-time Tag Team Champions, to reach the ‘next level’.
Reasons for chaos in the backstage on SmackDown
Before the show went on air, the backstage was in a chaotic stage as nothing was planned for the show. Until Vince McMahon showed up at 12:30 PM, everyone was clueless. Its reported that he torn scripts at the last moment and had everything re-written.
As the writers were also unaware of the whereabouts of the show, no advertisement for this week’s SmackDown was run. According to the reports of Wrestling Observer, this has been the case for the past few weeks and there was nothing new to it.
At Royal Rumble, SmackDown Superstar Roman Reigns is going to face Daniel Bryan
According to the events of this week’s SmackDown Rumour, it looks like The Tribal Chief will be taking on Kevin Owens at TLC.
Although it looked like WWE was creating a feud between Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns, this might not be happening anytime soon and will be facing each other at Royal Rumble.
SmackDown Rumour Superstar Big E not being part of Survivor series
In the men’s traditional Survivor Series, SmackDown suffered a humiliating loss against Team RAW. The entire team of five was clean swept by Team RAW.
Initially Big E was supposed to be the final member of SmackDown which ended up to be Otis. The possible reason could be that WWE is attempting to protect Big E from losing in a clean sweep which would not have helped his career. As per reports, WWE wants to save him for The New Day’s entrance on the main show.
