What to watch on Friday Night Smackdown
Women’s Royal Rumble winner Ronda Rousey will make her first ever appearance on Smackdown tonight and will officially choose who she will target for a title match at Wrestlemania. She had a brief confrontation with Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch on Monday and will for sure trade words with Smackdown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair on tonight’s show. She has history with both champs as co-main eventers of Wrestlemania 35, so either choice would make sense.
Universal Champion Roman Reigns had himself a busy night at the rumble last Saturday, retaining his title via DQ against Seth Rollins before costing Brock Lesnar the WWE Championship later in the evening. Following the loss, which included a Paul Heyman double cross, Lesnar went on to win the men’s Royal Rumble match and has already tabbed Reigns as his target for Wrestlemania. How will the Tribal Chief respond and what his direction for Elimination Chamber in two weeks?
