The first step. With the Royal Rumble in the books, it is time to start looking towards WrestleMania 36. It’s the biggest show of the year and that means things are about to get more interesting. However, since nothing is ever as simple as it should be in WWE, there are several shows in between and one of them is less than a month away, meaning the build needs to begin already.
On February 27, WWE returns to Saudi Arabia for the next entry in their series of controversial shows in the country. I’m not sure what we should be expecting in the way of issues and backlash, but you know something is going to be coming. The wrestling is usually not all that well received, but now we know a little bit of what is going to be coming on the show.
This week on SmackDown, John Morrison and the Miz won a fatal four way match to become the new #1 contenders to the SmackDown Tag Team Titles. The match also included Heavy Machinery, the Lucha House Party and the Revival. Miz and Morrison will go on to Super ShowDown on February 27 to challenge the New Day. Over the last several weeks, Miz and Morrison have defeated New Day in singles matches.
It was a rather action packed match. Check out how things went down:
Opinion: This is as logical as you can get for a title match. The four of them have set up the match for several weeks now and are going with the match that makes the most sense. Miz and Morrison are right back to jelling as a team and the New Day certainly needs a fresh team to face. I’m not sure if we see a title change at the show but at least we have something that should work.
How do you see the match going? Will the titles change hands? Let us know in the comments below.
