WWE SmackDown preview: Logan Paul returns, huge title match scheduled

Tonight, more than 13,000 people are expected to attend WWE SmackDown, which will be live from the Frost Bank Center in San Antonio, Texas. WWE has already announced some matchups and segments for the Crown Jewel PLE, and more might be teased this week.

Fans have to wait and see how the roster changes under the new General Manager for the blue brand. Tonight’s broadcast will feature several new battles, and the return of Logan Paul is a major storyline.

Logan Paul Returns

Logan Paul’s boxing victory against Dillon Danis garnered headlines, but it was what occurred next that drew the attention of the WWE Hall of Famer. For the United States Championship, Paul challenged Rey Mysterio and WWE set a match for the championship this week.

A full-on challenge isn’t necessary at this time, but the clues he dropped throughout his segment may be used to set up a match on the Road to WrestleMania. It has been reported that the YouTube face is eager to face John Cena at WrestleMania. Cena is helping WWE promote younger talent, and The Maverick might be next on the list. 

Santos Escobar vs Montez Ford

In the wrestling arena, personal rivalries may sometimes reach a fever pitch. The battle between Santos Escobar and Montez Ford means a lot to LWO. Carlito was welcomed at WWE Fastlane, however on the following week’s broadcast of SmackDown, he was assaulted backstage by Bobby Lashley, Angelo Dawkins, and Ford.

IYO SKY vs Charlotte Flair -Huge title match

When Nick Aldis took over as General Manager of SmackDown Live last week, he promptly granted Charlotte Flair a championship match. IYO SKY, the SummerSlam champion, has never competed against The Queen head-to-head. Many believe that IYO SKY, with the help of Damage CTRL, will be able to defend her crown in the rematch event.

On January 27th, WWE announced that tickets for the 2024 Royal Rumble will go on sale at Tropicana Field. It seems that The Tribal Chief has no doubts that he will still be the WWE Universal Champion.

The Big Dog has been a main attraction at seven of the eleven WrestleMania he has appeared at. He is already thinking about the next fight, even though it may be against LA Knight in Saudi Arabia. Possibly the winner of the Royal Rumble got a message from him offering a trip to the “Island of Relevancy.”

The time has not yet come for the WWE Royal Rumble. What bout on the next Smackdown are you looking forward to the most? Share your thoughts in the comments.
