In case you missed the latest episode of Smackdown, Kalisto defeated Ryback to advance in the tournament to crown a new world heavyweight champion. It is now being said that the reason why WWE did that is because there are those backstage that felt that the tournament matches were a bit predictable. The creative department wanted to have at least one upset in the first round.

For the longest time now, fans have been trained to view Smackdown as a secondary show. That is going to be temporarily changing soon. The belief is that Vince McMahon is going to load up the show with big matches for the first few months after they move to the USA Network. There is a very good chance that John Cena is going to have to work on that show more frequently than normal. Undertaker and Brock Lesnar might even make appearances.

With Wrestlemania being less than two weeks away, WWE might need to call an audible with one of the championship matches. Initially, the Usos were scheduled to be one of the teams that challenged Antonio Cesaro and Tyson Kidd for the tag team belts, but Jey Uso suffered some sort of shoulder injury during the latest episode of Smackdown. There is no timetable for his return yet. His brother Jimmy Uso worked live events by himself.

For those of you that are wondering, Bo Dallas has been medically cleared to make his return to WWE. He even worked some matches when the company did live events in Abu Dhabi earlier this month. It is just another case of the creative department not having enough time to come up with something for a performer. That is the biggest reason why Dallas is still just hanging out backstage instead of being on camera during Monday Night Raw and Smackdown.

The big push for Sasha Banks has begun. She is now the new NXT Women's Champion after defeating Charlotte, Bayley and Becky Lynch in a fatal four way match that was much better than most of the divas matches that you would see on the main WWE roster. Management is said to be very high on Sasha, as they feel that she could eventually be someone that plays a key part on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown in the near future.
