There are good and bad things in every episode. Similarly, in this episode of SmackDown, WWE made fans happy at some places, while on some occasions the fans had to face disappointment. So in this article we are going to discuss the good and bad things about the episode of SmackDown.
WWE SmackDown: The buildup of Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar’s match
Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar’s feud was carried forward quite well in an episode of SmackDown. Roman Reigns cut the promo and was happy because of Lesnar’s absence. However, later Lesnar entered and Rance started running for this reason. Lesnar came and rammed his car.
Later Roman Reigns and Bloodline tried to escape with the truck. Lesnar took out the gate of that truck and took him to the ring. Later, The Beast cut a terrific promo to warn the Universal Champion. WWE carried the storyline between the two legends well. His segment proved to be interesting.
IC Champion Ricochet missing
There has been a big improvement in the booking of Ricochet. WWE is showing him a lot of power. The last two weeks have been great for him. He captured the IC title and later defended it against Sami Zayn in a rematch. For this reason, it seemed that he would be seen this week also.
Ricochet didn’t appear in an episode of SmackDown and that’s truly a disappointing thing. WrestleMania 38 is close and the Intercontinental Champion missing out on SmackDown is a bad thing. His enmity with some superstar should have started at this time.
Charlotte Flair as a major threat to Ronda Rousey
Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey will see a match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship. Everyone knows that Ronda Rousey is going to win at WrestleMania. For this reason, the fans were not looking so excited for this match. However, in the recent past, both the superstars have caught the attention of the fans.
Fans had a feeling that Flair would not be able to dominate. However, for the past two weeks in a row, the SmackDown Women’s Champion has had the upper hand against Ronda Rousey. WWE is projecting him as a major threat to Rousey and will make fans more excited for their match at WrestleMania.
Kofi Kingston loses by pinfall
The match between Kofi Kingston and Ridge Holland was seen in the episode of SmackDown. Everyone was expecting Kofi to win in this match. However, Sheamus and Butch were interfered on several occasions in the match. That’s why in the end, Ridge had the upper hand and he registered a big win over Kofi.
It was a disappointing thing to see Kofi weak. Kofi was fighting a match against Ridge to avenge his teammate Big E’s injury. For this reason, he could be shown as powerful in the match. However, WWE booked the Heel Superstar to win here and it’s a disappointing thing.
