From The WWE Rumor Mill: Possible future SmackDown Live feuds leaked via email (Spoilers)
It looks like most of the future feuds on SmackDown Live have been accidentally revealed.
In an effort to boost ticket sales and drum up excitement for the upcoming events, WWE often posts upcoming matches for live shows well in advance.
It turns out that they might have accidentally revealed a couple of interesting tidbits about a few upcoming feuds via an online poll asking fans what they thought about some matches which might be coming our way soon enough.
WWE is continuing to provide great action and appeal to everyone. This is why an email like this was sent out. The only problem is that it possibly contained a few spoilers.
WWE recently sent out an email to subscribers of the WWE Network which could indicate a few of the rivalries we should be expecting on SmackDown Live in the upcoming weeks.
According to what this email suggests, Jinder Mahal will be taking on AJ Styles in the weeks following Survivor Series. This could very well indicate that a feud is planned. This only backs up Dave Meltzer's speculation on Wrestling Observer Radio regarding the next opponent of Jinder Mahal.
If things happen as they appear to be playing out by this email it looks like Kevin Owens will be squaring off against Randy Orton down the line as well. This would be a nice feud as Orton is a former WWE Champion and deserving of a high-profile feud and at this point, it doesn't get much bigger on the SmackDown Live side than the guy who just had a punishing Hell In A Cell match against Shane McMahon
It appears that Shinsuke Nakamura will be moving on from the World Title picture in order to feud with Sami Zayn who recently turned heel. This gives fans an incredible chance to see Zayn and Nakamura reenact their amazing match at NXT TakeOver: Dallas.
Finally, Bobby Roode appears to be continuing his feud with Dolph Ziggler for the foreseeable future. Those two guys have plenty of tricks up their sleeves and it looks like their outing at Hell In A Cell is only the beginning of their interaction on SmackDown Live.
If this email is of any good it looks like the WWE Universe will have several interesting feuds in store for them coming from WWE's Blue Team.
Big championship match rumored for the WWE Royal Rumble 2018
The Royal Rumble is the yearly action-filled celebration kicking off the road to WrestleMania. After all, everything eventually leads to The Show Of Shows. But WrestleMania 34’s main event was said to be set before 33’s show even kicked off. The main event, after all, will most likely be Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title.
Therefore anyone in the way of Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns is thought of as just someone they have to get through on their path to headline the big show in New Orleans. There’s no telling if the WWE Universe will actually be ready for Roman Reigns to become to top babyface in the company but it’s going to happen eventually (most likely).
Since Brock Lesnar’s dance card is full for Survivor Series with Jinder Mahal there is just one more date for The Beast Incarnate before his eventual show-down with Roman Reigns if things go as planned.
Dave Meltzer speculated in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Finn Balor will most likely be getting the call to face Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble. Balor’s been chasing the Universal Title since returning from injury when he had to vacate his title.
It might not turn out the way members of Balor Club would prefer, but it looks like Balor is likely going to get another chance to pick up the Universal Title in Philadelphia.
