4.) King Corbin & Knights Of The Lone Wolf vs. Murphy & Mysterio Family [6-Man Tag Match]
As indicated on last week’s Daily DDT Edition of WWE SmackDown Predictions, King Corbin and the Knights of The Lone Wolf (formerly known as Forgotten Sons) will very likely battle Murphy and the Mysterio Family in a six-man tag team match at some point. This would be the most plausible booking decision to make in order to break the tie after Corbin and Murphy one-upped each other with nefarious victories in their last two bouts from the past two weeks.
Corbin and his new cohorts/henchmen, Knights of the Lone Wolf, are the fresher squad, so they need the win more. Murphy and the Mysterio family can always bounce back in the coming weeks. It is not clear where this feud is heading, but the idea of former tag partners, Blake and Murphy, being in the same ring together has to turn some heads one way or the other. This feud could set up either group for mid card and tag team championship opportunities in the near future.
Prediction: King Corbin & Knights of Lone Wolf
3.) Bianca Belair vs. Bayley [Grudge Match]
The fact that Bayley, the longest reigning SmackDown Women’s Champion in history and the undisputed superstar of the year for 2020, tapped out to Natalya’s Sharpshooter two weeks ago and never got a rematch against Natalya to regain her momentum makes Sasha’s past title win over Bayley and Belair’s inevitable win over Bayley on this episode seem less valuable. Nonetheless, this match is still a dream match in the making.
This match will evidently determine who is next for a SmackDown Women’s Championship opportunity against Sasha Banks once Banks retains the championship against Carmella at TLC. Since Bayley has already battled Banks twice and could be saved for a third match against her at WrestleMania 37, Belair needs to win this match to keep things fresh in the SmackDown Women’s Division and more importantly earn her first title opportunity on the main roster.
Prediction: Bianca Belair
