It has been confirmed by WWE that Sami Zayn will face Johnny Knoxville at WrestleMania 38. Tonight’s SmackDown might see Sami attacking Johnny on a backstage segment.

3. Ricochet might be involved in a new feud

Last week Ricochet won the Intercontinental Championship against Johnny Knoxville. This week might see Ricochet starting a new feud for the Intercontinental Championship, which might be against Angel Garza and Humberto Carrillo. 

4. Drew McIntyre to face Madcap Moss

Last week on SmackDown, Drew McIntyre defeated Jinder Mahal, and during the match, Happy Corbin and Madcap Moss were watching from the backstage area. 

This week might see McIntyre facing Moss in one-on-one action, which might be building towards Corbin vs McIntyre at WrestleMania 38. 

Prediction: Drew McIntyre defeats Madcap Moss.

5. Face-off between Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey

Last Week’s Friday Night SmackDown saw Ronda Rousey making her in-ring debut against Sonya Deville, which was dominated by the former UFC Champion, and Flair was on the commentary table. 

The segment ended with Ronda going out on Flair with the ankle lock. So this week might see a face-off between the two, and Flair is expected to get some revenge.

6. Sasha Banks to take on Queen Zelina in one on one action 

Friday Night SmackDown from last week saw Naomi defeating Carmella, which resulted in WWE officially confirming a match between Sasha Banks and Queen Zelina for this week’s SmackDown episode. 

Prediction: Sasha Banks defeats Queen Zelina.

7. Brock Lesnar might attack The Bloodline

Brock Lesnar didn’t appear last week on SmackDown, but since The Beast got thrashed badly at the Road to WrestleMania event, this week might see Brock taking on the attack on The Bloodline.

The Usos might be the one who might be on the receiving end to save their Tribal Chief. On the other hand, Lesnar might be getting some revenge. This might be a perfect build-up for WrestleMania 38, where these two will face each other in a Winner Takes All Title Unification Match.
