It’s time to (get ready to) rumble! This past Sunday saw the final WWE pay per view of 2017 and that means it’s time to get ready for the new year. We’re getting ready for the busiest season of the year and “Monday Night Raw” has already gotten in on the Royal Rumble act with its first name being announced. Therefore, it’s “Smackdown Live’s” turn. has released its official preview for this episode of “Smackdown Live”, which will focus on the fallout from Sunday’s “Clash of Champions 2017”. This includes the next step for Dolph Ziggler after winning the US Title, fallout from Sunday’s major tag team match and whether or not Natalya may be leaving WWE or at least making a change. Here are the five stories mentioned in the preview:

Opinion: It’s time to get ready for “Royal Rumble 2018” and that gives me a lot of hope going forward. We still have a little “Clash of Champions” fallout to deal with first but then, things will get more interesting in a hurry. The lack of a mention of Shane McMahon/Daniel Bryan in here worries me though, as you would expect it to dominate the show.
