WWE SmackDown preview: Sure, it actually is that this straightforward for Charlotte Aptitude


SmackDown airs tonight (June 16) with a dwell present from Rupp Area in Lexington, Kentucky. That is the third episode of SmackDown through the 5 week construct in direction of Cash within the Financial institution, which takes place on July 1.

Sure, it actually is that this straightforward for Charlotte Aptitude

WWE offered Asuka with the brand new WWE Ladies’s Championship final week. However earlier than she may actually bask within the glory of her new gold, Charlotte Aptitude made a stunning return to WWE tv and took the highlight away from The Empress.

WWE Official Adam Pearce knew what was coming and tried to cease it from taking place, however his half-assed try failed; The Queen instantly jumped to the entrance of the road and now has herself a title match towards Asuka later this month. That is the kind of energy transfer I’d anticipate from a legend like John Cena or a part-time star like Brock Lesnar, waltzing again in to WWE out of nowhere to instantly get a world title match. I suppose whenever you’re Charlotte Aptitude, it’s simply that straightforward to get a championship match everytime you need one.

Probably the most fascinating side of this angle was Bianca Belair’s response to it. The previous champion had an settlement with Pearce to not interrupt Asuka’s new championship presentation as a result of The EST is in line for a rematch with Asuka. The truth that Aptitude walked again into WWE and reduce proper in entrance of her for that title match didn’t sit nicely with Bianca, understandably.

There have been rumors that Belair will flip heel, and this storyline may definitely be the beginning of taking place that path. Bianca is completely in the suitable at this second, as a result of she performed ball with Pearce, saved her phrase, and doesn’t need to be second in line behind Aptitude. However now that Aptitude pulled out her Hulk Hogan card and jumped in entrance of The EST for a title match, all bets are off. Bianca would possibly must look out for herself extra and never give a shit what anyone else thinks about her actions.

Aptitude is again on SmackDown tonight as a visitor on The Grayson Waller Impact. I anticipate each Asuka and Belair will crash the get together and create a really explosive scene. Is that this the place Bianca makes her transfer on Aptitude, or will The EST await Aptitude’s precise title match to let her know who the highest star on SmackDown is?

The remainder of the title scene

WWE Common Champion Roman Reigns is again on SmackDown tonight after skipping final week’s episode. Roman needs Jey Uso to decide on his future with The Bloodline. Is Jey sticking by his brother Jimmy’s aspect, or will he fall in line behind Roman given Paul Heyman’s decree that Jey is the subsequent Tribal Chief? Jimmy by chance superkicked Jey within the face final week and price him a match towards United States Champion Austin Concept, including much more uncertainty to Jey’s resolution.

There might be a tag crew gauntlet match tonight that includes the LWO, Brawling Brutes, Road Earnings, The O.C, and Fairly Lethal. The profitable crew turns into the primary contender for a title match towards WWE Tag Group Champions Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. If Sheamus is on the lookout for a approach to make it onto the Cash within the Financial institution card in London, profitable this match is his finest guess to make that occur.

WWE Ladies’s Tag Group Champions Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler will battle NXT Ladies’s Tag Group Champions Alba Fyre & Isla Daybreak in a title unification match subsequent week. The NXT champs are in all probability getting worn out when that match occurs, so perhaps WWE will e book them to look sturdy tonight to create some form of glimmer of hope for them.

What position will Bayley play within the end?

– Bobby Lashley hasn’t been round since earlier than Evening of Champions. Nevertheless, WWE’s website does embrace him on the listing of wrestlers who’re scheduled to be at tonight’s present, so perhaps his return is simply hours away.
