Here are the top 5 things;
#1. WWE United States Champion Logan Paul Awaits New Challenge
It has been officially announced that Logan Paul will make an appearance on the December 1st episode of WWE SmackDown. During the show, he will be searching for his next challenger for the WWE United States Championship which he recently won from Rey Mysterio at WWE Crown Jewel.
Several WWE stars on Raw, including AJ Styles, Austin Theory, Kevin Owens, and LA Knight, could potentially challenge Paul for the title.
#2. Randy Orton To Have A Match
At Survivor Series: WarGames, Randy Orton made his return to the ring. He also delivered an in-ring promo during Monday Night Raw last week. Later that same night, Orton won a singles match against “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio.
#3. LA Knight To Have A Match
LA Knight has emerged as a standout performer on the SmackDown roster, consistently delivering top-notch performances in recent matches. In the lead-up to Survivor Series: WarGames last week, Kevin Owens and LA Knight seized the spotlight by disrupting “The Grayson Waller Effect.” The interruption transformed the moment into an exhilarating tag team victory as they triumphed over A-Town Down Under.
#4. Carlito Makes His Return And Faces Santos Escobar
In the lead-up to Survivor Series: WarGames, Carlito initially stepped up to face Santos Escobar in a singles match. However, in the latest episode of SmackDown, Escobar took a ruthless approach, assaulting Carlito and leaving him incapacitated mere hours before their scheduled showdown at Survivor Series: WarGames.
#5. Iyo Sky Finds New Challenger
Iyo Sky, in her inaugural reign, currently holds the prestigious WWE Women’s Championship. She secured the title by capitalizing on her Money in the Bank contract, seizing the opportunity after a triple threat match featuring Asuka and Charlotte Flair, ultimately dethroning Bianca Belair.
Her most recent title defense occurred at Crown Jewel, where she successfully retained her championship against Belair. The triumph was aided by the unexpected return of Kairi Sane. As a result, the stage is now set for a potential challenge from Belair as she contemplates a quest to reclaim the coveted championship from Iyo.
