03/05 SmackDown Discussion Thread: Who will answer R-Truth’s open challenge?



Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza, Wilkes-Barre, PA


Quote:
Last week, in his quest to make John Cena proud, R-Truth renewed Cena’s tradition of the United States Championship Open Challenge, and successfully defended the star-spangled title against Rey Mysterio and Andrade in a Triple Threat Match. Tonight, Truth’s quest continues as he issues another challenge. Who will step up for this huge opportunity? Find out tonight on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!


R-Truth to issue another United States Championship Open Challenge


Quote:
Asking himself “What would John Cena do?,” R-Truth took on both Rey Mysterio and Andrade when they answered his United States Championship Open Challenge this past week. With the two rivals focused on each other, Truth was able to roll up Mysterio and retain his title.

Tonight, Truth will issue another open challenge for his star-spangled title. Who will step up and answer the call?


The Miz to face Jey Uso


Quote:
Just five nights before their SmackDown Tag Team Championship rematch at WWE Fastlane, The Miz and Jey Uso will square off in a one-on-one battle with momentum hanging in the balance.

The Usos remain convinced that The A-Lister is a joke, and that Shane McMahon should find another tag team partner, though Shane-O-Mac clearly disagreed when he made the rematch for Fastlane in The Miz’s hometown of Cleveland.

Can The Awesome One prove himself and gain momentum heading into the huge title match?


Is Kevin Owens looking to gain more momentum heading into WWE Fastlane?


Quote:
Mr. McMahon shocked the WWE Universe last Tuesday when he replaced Kofi Kingston in the WWE Championship Match at WWE Fastlane with the returning Kevin Owens. KO teamed up with Kingston later that night, pinning WWE Champion Daniel Bryan with a thunderous Stunner.

With just five nights remaining before their title showdown, what else might KO do to get the upper hand on Bryan?


Will The Hardy Boyz continue their quest to become the greatest tag team?


Quote:
Last Tuesday, Matt & Jeff Hardy reunited as a tag team for the first time since 2017, defeating The Bar in a thrilling battle. In a WWE.com exclusive interview following their victory, The Hardy Boyz said that they joined forces once again to prove to everyone that they are the greatest tag team in time and space.

Will The Hardy Boyz continue on this journey? Who might their quest lead them to next? Find out on SmackDown LIVE, tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network!

Is it just me, or does SmackDown feel like even more of the B show lately?

I guess that's what happens when one champion is a jobber & the other is never on tv.

Could they care less for SD's RTWM?

I mean holy shit, SD is getting one decently built feud for the show and it's in reality a low card match on name.

Shane/Miz has been built well, but no one really cares for the match. Would have been better off doing Miz vs Bryan.

Bryan and Asuka. The US Title is beyond irrelevance. To be honest I forgot Truth even had the belt until clicking on this thread and seeing the pic, I thought Nakamura had it.

The rest of the preview likely won't be up until Monday night. WWE always teases a few things in advance though.

I'm more interested in where they decide to take the AJ/Orton angle more than anything else, Here's to hoping it's more than just a quick backstage segment.

re: 03/05 SmackDown Discussion Thread: Who will answer R-Truth’s open challenge?

Yeah SmackDown is clearly the B Show. Same as last year nothing feels important. Asuka cant even get on TV, The US Champ is a comedy jobber, Bryan has no one to feud with that feels like a WM match, and the only exciting option (Kofi) is being screwed with unnecessarily. The Miz / Shane feud is the only big angle on SDL and thats not a match anyone is looking forward too, and the angle has gone really quiet in recent weeks.

SmackDown is just providing the midcard matches again.

The sad thing is there are a few interesting options right there. Instead of Charlotte screwing with Becky v Ronda we could have had a Charlotte v Asuka rematch. Instead of Bryan burying Miz in their last match and then Bryan now struggling for WM opponents and Miz being a joke in the tag division we could have had Miz v Bryan.

That's all they've advertised so far. I'll update the op when the full preview comes out.
