*OFFICIAL* SmackDown Discussion Thread: 20th February 2018

Charlotte Flair’s quest for payback on The Riott Squad will explode tonight when the SmackDown Women’s Champion teams up with Becky Lynch and Naomi to battle Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan & Sarah Logan on SmackDown LIVE.

The Riott Squad left Charlotte unconscious for the first time in her career, nearly costing The Queen her title. Though Flair did not lose the championship, she vowed to get retribution on her attackers. She walked into the lion’s den, facing Liv Morgan by herself with Riott & Logan on the outside. When the other two Riott Squad members were ejected from ringside, Charlotte earned the victory, then made her intentions clear afterward, saying “one down, two to go.”

One week later, she took on Logan, this time with Lynch and Naomi in her corner. With the odds evened, The Riott Squad did not meddle in the match, and Flair picked up another win.

In a video posted to Ruby Riott’s Twitter, The Riott Squad issued the challenge for a six-woman showdown, saying that it’s only a matter of time before Flair’s whole world crumbles.

What will happen when these two trios collide in the ring? Find out on SmackDown LIVE, tonight!

Last Tuesday, WWE Champion AJ Styles went into SmackDown LIVE with only two opponents challenging for his title at WWE Fastlane. By the end of the night, The Phenomenal One had four challengers, as Dolph Ziggler and Baron Corbin earned their way into what has become a Fatal 5-Way Match.

Styles has made it clear that he’s not the biggest fan of how Daniel Bryan has been handling the situation with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, but what will he have to say now that Bryan and McMahon’s decision-making has backed him into a corner on The Road to WrestleMania?

SmackDown LIVE has just gotten “serious.”

One week after Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable interrupted Big E’s attempt to break an all-time pancake-eating record — an insulting interruption that preceded a loss to The New Day — SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan has decreed that the teams will square off once again this week, and the winners will challenge The Usos for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles at WWE Fastlane.

Bryan made the announcement on Twitter.

Benjamin & Gable are looking for “serious” competition and view the breakfast-favorable trio as a joke, despite their four Tag Team Championship reigns across Raw and SmackDown LIVE. Tonight, they’ll learn just how serious The New Day can be.

Don’t miss any of the action on SmackDown LIVE!

The Glorious One is out to prove that he’s a fighting United States Champion, and last week, he issued an open challenge to anyone willing to step up, though he really wanted Randy Orton to answer the call after being RKO’d by The Viper last week.

Bobby Roode nearly got his wish when The Viper arrived, but Jinder Mahal followed to cut the proceedings short and stir the pot between The Viper and the United States Champion. The Modern Day Maharaja set off a brawl that led to Mahal hitting both Roode and Orton with his patented Khallas. Orton has vowed that he’s coming after Roode’s title, but with Mahal ready to interject himself, will he have a clear road to the star-spangled championship?

The Usos continued to explain why they have the rest of the Smackdown LIVE Tag Team division on lockdown, but Jimmy & Jey’s message was cut short by The Bludgeon Brothers. Appearing in front of a monitor that was playing the SmackDown Tag Team Champions’ missive, Harper & Rowan wielded their mighty war hammers and smashed the screen to pieces.

Now that the champions are seemingly in the crosshairs of The Bludgeon Brothers, is The Uso Penitentiary in danger of demolition?
