WWE Smackdown Live preview and schedule: May 21, 2019
Bengaluru, May 21: Money in the Bank has left a number of fall-outs which has the deck set up for this week’s Smackdown where the build up for the next pay-per-view event named WWE Super ShowDown is set to begin. Starting from tonight, the buildups for the upcoming PPV will pick up pace as it’s just less than three weeks away for the Saudi Arabia event.
Going into tonight’s Smackdown, the WWE Championship smackdown picture will be the prime focus, as we expect a new challenger for the reigning title-holder. Good news for him though is that The New Day is set to reunite tonight as Big E returns from an injury. Meanwhile, the scene could be different for the new women’s champion whose fate is still to be decided. Plus, multiple other matches could be in the pipeline to be made official for Super ShowDown from the blue brand that includes the marquee names like Kevin Owens and Daniel Bryan. Here is a breakdown of those potential matches on Smackdown that emanates from the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island:
Kofi Kingston’s dream run with the WWE Championship continues even after Money in the Bank where he collided against Kevin Owens. The Prizefighter showed the most ruthless version that was blocked every time by the Dreadlocked Dynamo of the WWE who showed tremendous resiliency. He retained the title via clean pinfall leading to the question whether this feud will continue or not. Technically, Kevin Owens should not deserve any more shots as he digested a clean pinfall loss. But WWE may not decide to start a new storyline at his point as it has to culminate within three weeks. This may be the only reason that Kofi vs. Owens could be reignited. Even the internet rumors also suggest a rematch is in-store for Super ShowDown. Hence, the bad blood between these two may continue. It will be interesting to see whether he tries to ruin the good vibes on Smackdown when Big E comes back to have a reunion with his pals.
