WWE SmackDown: Here are some of our predictions for this week’s episode of Smackdown. In our WWE Smackdown predictions, we take a guess at the matches and also some of the big moments that will take place during the show.
WWE Smackdown Predictions
7) Montez Ford Will Get A Shot At The Intercontinental Championship
On the latest episode of Smackdown, Montez Ford pinned Sami Zayn. This came during an 8-man tag team match.
Since Montez pinned Sami, we think that we could see him receive the next shot at the Intercontinental Championship. This would make sense as Montez now has a pinfall victory over the current Champion. Sami vs Montez sounds like a fun match to me. We would be down to see it.
6) Sasha Banks & Carmella Will Get Into A Big Brawl
Carmella has been attacking Sasha Banks over the past few weeks. It seems clear that Sasha vs Carmella is going to be our next feud for the Smackdown Women’s Championship.
Our guess is that Sasha and Carmella will get into a big brawl during this next episode of SmackDown. This will make it clear that they will be facing off at the upcoming TLC PPV.
5) Otis & Chad Gable Will Pick Up A Tag Team Victory
Over the past few weeks, WWE has been teasing a partnership between Otis and Chad Gable. So far, this has only been seen in backstage segments.
Our prediction for this next episode is that Otis and Chad Gable will pick up a tag team victory. We are not sure who they will face but we see them picking up a win. This will establish that they are officially a tag team.
4) Seth Rollins Will Get Written Off WWE Television
The rumor going around is that Seth Rollins will be taking some time off from WWE. This is because Becky Lynch is due soon with their first child together.
If that is the case, we could see Seth being on the receiving end of a massive beat down on this next episode of Smackdown. We could see Seth getting attacked by members of the Smackdown men’s team from Survivor Series. This is because Seth ditched the team during the men’s elimination match. This attack will write Seth off television for the next several weeks.
3) Bianca Belair Will Start Feuding With Bayley
We think that Bianca Belair will start a new feud with Bayley on this next episode of SmackDown. This would be a fun secondary feud for the Smackdown Women’s division. Sasha Banks will likely be busy with Carmella over the next several weeks, so this seems like the best option for both Bianca and Bayley. We don’t know about you guys but we are down to see Bianca vs Bayley.
2) Big E Will Pick Up A Victory
We were surprised when Big E didn’t end up as the final member of Team Smackdown at Survivor Series. We thought that he was a lock for the match. Instead, Otis was named as the final member of the team.
We are still hopeful that Big E is going to be on the receiving end of a nice singles push over the next little while. If that is going to be the case, they need to get him some wins to generate some momentum. We guess that Big E will pick up a squash victory on this episode. This will be against an enhancement talent.
1) Kevin Owens Will Come To The Aid Of Daniel Bryan After He Gets Attacked By Roman Reigns & Jey Uso
If you are a reader of my TLC predictions, you know that we are predicting a tag team match involving Roman Reigns at the event. That would be Roman and Jey Uso vs Daniel Bryan and Kevin Owens.
This is a match that would make sense as Bryan and Owens have had issues with Reigns and Uso in recent weeks. The storyline took a backseat in the build to Survivor Series but we expect it to resume during this next episode.
Our prediction is that Roman Reigns and Jey Uso will attack Daniel Bryan during this next episode. This will lead to Kevin Owens coming out and making the save for Bryan.
This will help set up the tag team match at TLC: Bryan and Owens vs Reigns and Uso. That seems like an easy way to set the feud into motion.
