Gunter punishing fools makes surprise return to wwe smackdown
A surprise return by Gunther for Smackdown was a big deal on the first night of the show, as the former Wrestling Mercenary is back in the ring to fight Joe Alonzo. In the past, the Mercenary had been a popular NXT star. The last time we saw him, he accompanied The Ring General to a one-sided enhancement match. His return to the main roster marks a significant change in his career.
In a surprising turn, the former NXT superstar will make his shock return to SmackDown by turning the tables on the cheese and slapping his hat off before the match. He used to make a big deal out of ripping his pants, but now he tears them off before the bell rings. As expected, Gunther will also face Roman Reigns, the current Universal Champion.
Gunter beats Jey Uso
Wrestling’s Smackdown results aren’t what they used to be, but there were some surprises in the show. Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso were banned from the ring, but a surprise came when Cesaro speared Edge in a corner. While the former champion did come back to the ring, he was slowed down by a knee injury and eventually had to leave the ring.
Earlier, Sami Zayn and Drew McIntyre talked about the loss at Resalmania, and then announcing his return, former champion makes a surprise comeback. Meanwhile, Gunther battles Joe Alonzo and becomes the latest new star in WWE. Ludwig Kaiser, who played Marcel Barthel in Imperium, joined the Ring General in a one-sided enhancement match.
Big E was stripped of his Intercontinental title last year. But he fought back, and after the match, he even lobbed a formal complaint against WWE. Big E gave him a shot at the title, and he almost won it back. However, Apollo Crews broke up the pin and sent him to the timekeeper’s area, where Big E pinned him.
Boogs and Deville had been paired for over a year, and they had a good chemistry on commentary. However, Banks’ surprise earlier in the show may have burnt the audience in Kansas City. Regardless of the circumstances, she and Banks have the tag titles on Raw next week. A big question is, can Naomi and Banks retain their tag titles? If so, she should get the win in Raw.
Despite the shock of the surprise appearance of The Shield, this was an impressive show. The two women worked together well for a long time, but their chemistry was strained. But when Reigns made his surprise return, they were able to make their feud last longer than expected. They were able to use their skills in a way that the crowd responded to.
Braun Strowman’s sneak attack on Cesaro
After the match, Sami Zayn got Braun Strowman a secret Santa present: mittens! She tried to find mittens for Braun’s big hands! Braun asked for a shot at the Intercontinental Title, which Sami shrugged off. Afterwards, the crowd booed, and Braun rolled out to celebrate.
The match between Braun Strowman and Cesaro at WWE Smackdown was an interesting one. The attack on Cesaro was particularly surprising. Unlike in the previous two matches, Strowman was unnoticed by his teammates. This was the first time a man with a big, intimidating presence has sneaked up on a superstar, but it left an impression on the crowd.
Then, Cesaro and Braun Strowman were involved in an argument on the ringside. Then, Strowman’s attack on Cesaro nearly cost him the Universal Title. But, the next week on SmackDown, Strowman will face the challenger. In the meantime, he’ll face The Fiend and Sami Zayn.
In the second match, Strowman and Cesaro were paired with Jey Uso. The former nailed a Running Powerslam on Cesaro, while the latter hit a zig-zag onto the steel steps. Afterwards, Jimmy Uso won with a superkick. After the match, Heyman said that it was expected. While the match ended in a no-contest, Heyman hyped the future.
The match ended with a no-contest, and the winner was Braun Strowman. It was the first time the world champion crowned a new universal champion. The new champion is now named as the “Beast of the Underground.”
Ronda Rousey vs Charlotte Flair on wwe smackdown
During the Women’s Championship match between Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey on Wrestlemania 33, both women were in the spotlight and a rematch between them is inevitable. Both women have had a great run in the WWE, and both will be hungry to win the championship again. Here is how they met in the ring on Smackdown.
While it was not exactly a match that was filled with exciting action, it was definitely worth watching. While Rousey took the early advantage, Charlotte matched up with her. Rousey used her knee to land an elbow in Charlotte’s mouth, but Charlotte hit her with a back elbow in the back of the head. It seemed as if both women were dishing out receipts to each other. However, Charlotte’s German suplex was one of the most impressive moments in the match.
The match featured both women competing for the Smackdown Women’s Championship. In the previous rematch, Ronda Rousey took Flair down with a knee and a clothesline. After that, Charlotte Flair hit her with a German suplex and rolled to the outside of the ring. Fortunately for fans, Charlotte Flair rolled to the outside of the ring.
Despite her injury, Ronda Rousey is still in the mix for the Women’s Championship. Although the feud has ended, the former champion may never be the same Ronda Rousey from her early days. Regardless, the match will be interesting to watch. Who knows, maybe Charlotte Flair is her next opponent. It’s always exciting to see Rousey and Flair battling for the championship in the WWE.
Sasha Banks’ surprise return to wwe smackdown
Sasha Banks’ surprise return to WWE SmackDown on Friday marked the first time she has appeared on WWE TV in more than three months. After missing almost 6 weeks of action following a foot injury, Banks was reportedly in line to miss six to eight weeks of action. She has announced that she will compete in the Women’s Royal Rumble match on January 29, just in time for the Royal Rumble.
The WWE has confirmed that Sasha will be back on Smackdown before WrestleMania 38. Bayley, meanwhile, could also make an in-ring return, after suffering a foot injury earlier this month. In addition to Banks, Bayley hasn’t competed since June 2021 and hasn’t aired on the show since then.
The announcement that Sasha is back was welcomed by fans, as Banks hadn’t appeared on the show since August’s WWE Supershow. She’d missed the PPV event, but WWE didn’t give her a specific reason for the absence. There’s no official reason for her absence, though, but she did appear backstage at a SmackDown taping on Monday. Hopefully, she’ll make an appearance at the next Super SmackDown taping.
The ring match between Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair was a big surprise for fans, as the two women met for the first time since she broke her heel in November. The brawl between the two women went on for a few minutes, but in the end, Flair retained the women’s title. Banks’ surprise return to SmackDown came after Charlotte Flair and Carmella made their surprise return to SmackDown a few weeks ago.
