WWE has been shaking issues up on SmackDown.
On final evening’s present, there have been three heel turns and an obvious babyface flip.
In a brutal assault on Huge E, Apollo Crews turned heel. Crews picked up the metal steps and dropped them on E. Because of the assault, E was taken to the hospital. It’s fairly clear that Crews shall be getting a rematch within the close to future for the Intercontinental Championship. Presumably, that’s a match deliberate for WrestleMania.
Otis seems to be getting a personality makeover. He and Chad Gable formally turned heel this week. Otis and Gable confronted Rey Mysterio and Dominik however the match was known as off by the referee due to Otis refusing to interrupt after the 5 depend. Otis delivered hit an enormous splash and he scaled again on his smooth teddy bear demeanor. Based mostly on how issues performed out final evening, it seems like he’s being portrayed as a ruthless monster. It’s value noting that Otis is a favourite of Vince McMahon so he might be positioned as one of many high heels of the model this 12 months.
Reginald teamed up with Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair to defeat the workforce of Bayley, Shayna Baszler, and Nia Jax. Reginald obtained the pin on Jax to win the match for his workforce and he celebrated with them. Later within the present, Carmella tossed a drink on him so it seems like they are going to be splitting up quickly.
All of those turns are along with the latest face turns of Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura.
