I can say with a good amount of confidence that the answer to that question is no.
After a stellar triple threat match in the main event, Cena’s opponent for the Royal Rumble will be Styles in another chapter in a rivalry that was one of the highlights of WWE in 2016.
But before we get into what that match could mean for Smackdown Live, let’s dive into Cena’s return, which kicked off the show.
American Alpha is the alpha team On the surface, American Alpha toppling The Wyatt Family win the Smackdown Live Tag Team titles was a surprising move by WWE, but when you think about it, we should have saw it coming.
The reason why anyone would have been surprised by American Alpha’s win was because the team hadn’t done a whole lot since being drafted to the brand began back in July despite coming in with a bunch of hype.
Before I dig into detail, here are the full match results from the Allstate Arena: - WWE Smackdown Tag Team championship – American Alpha def.
The Wyatt Family, Heath Slater/Rhyno & The Usos - WWE Smackdown Women’s championship – Alexa Bliss def. Dolph Ziggler & Baron Corbin John Cena to face Styles at Royal Rumble Cena made his triumphant return to Smackdown Live Tuesday and it didn’t take very long for him to waltz right into a championship match at the Royal Rumble.She bent her arm in a weird way to distract the referee (can you blame him for being distracted?) so that the women dressed as La Luchadora could slam Lynch’s head onto a turnbuckle the masked woman exposed earlier in the match.Bliss denied knowing who La Luchadora was after the match saying it was either Sasha Banks or Nia Jax, which was hilarious, but her arm was perfectly fine.The main reason why I liked is because it was something I had never seen before in wrestling.At one point of the match, a person dressed as La Luchadora ran down to the ring and was clearly lending a helping hand to Bliss.
