Top 3 Predictions For Next Week’s WWE SmackDown 30th Oct 2020
Here are the top three predictions that we think could happen for the next episode of WWE SmackDown 30th Oct 2020–
1. Kevin Owens and Daniel Bryan might get a Tag Team victory.
In this episode of SmackDown, we got a sneak peek by WWE that KO and Daniel Bryan might soon form a tag team. We think this is likely to happen for real.
There is a probability that in the coming episode of SmackDown, we might see a tag team of KO and Daniel Bryan. If it happens to be, the newly formed tag team might look to face Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode or Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura.
We predict that if things happen, the newly formed tag team of WWE might win the match.
2. Bayley might attack Sasha Banks to continue the feud.
In WWE Hell in a Cell 2020, Sasha Banks might win the SmackDown Women’s Championship. After the event, things between them won’t be sorted if our prediction is right. So we think on next Friday night SmackDown to keep the feud continue Bayley might attack Banks.
The feud between Bayley and Banks is not likely to get over in just one PPV. If Banks wins the match, there is a high probability that she might get attacked by Bayley.
3. Lars Sullivan might look to face Kalisto and defeat him.
In this episode of SmackDown, we saw Lars defeating Shorty G. Since the last few weeks, WWE has been awarding Lars’ matches, and we think this won’t be stopping soon.
On SmackDown’s next episode, Lars might look to face Kalisto, and we can expect he might win the match as well.
