WWE SMACKDOWN/USA NETWORK: April 24 preview with Daniel Bryan on Miz TV (WWE.com)

Daniel Bryan to appear on Miz TV

Last week, The Miz received the news that he would be
heading to SmackDown LIVE in the 2018 Superstar Shake-up.
Under normal circumstances, that probably would have been
good news. Unfortunately for The Awesome One, his return to
Team Blue was requested by Daniel Bryan. There is a long
history between the two, dating back to Season 1 of NXT in
2010, but the bad blood in recent years can be traced back
to The A-Listers first turn on SmackDown LIVE.

Then the brands General Manager, Bryan was very critical of
The Mizs in-ring style and minced no words when expressing
those views to Mizs face on WWE Talking Smack. Bryans
criticism sent The Awesome One flying off the handle in a
rant about Bryan and his retirement that left Bryan so
furious that he walked off the show. The Miz took things
even further, mocking Bryan during his matches by using The
Beards trademark kicks.

The Miz completely loses it in the face of GM Daniel Bryan:

A lot has transpired since then, the biggest change being
that Bryan is back in the ring as a full-time Superstar, and
hes apparently had enough of The Mizs mockery. What will
happen when these rivals come face to face?

Jimmy Uso takes on Rowan of The Bludgeon Brothers
Jey Uso vs. Harper: SmackDown LIVE, April 17, 201802:15
Last week, the rivalry between The Usos and SmackDown Tag
Team Champions The Bludgeon Brothers became extremely
personal when Naomi rushed to ringside to plead with Harper
& Rowan not to destroy her husband, Jimmy, and brother-in-
law, Jey. The Bludgeon Brothers, perhaps showing a small
amount of compassion, ended the carnage.

The Usos are not going to back down from the massive mallet-
wielders in the face of their title match at this Fridays
Greatest Royal Rumble event, as Jimmy Uso is stepping up to
take on Rowan in one-on-one competition. How will he handle
the monstrous Superstar? Will Naomi heed her familys advice
and stay out of The Bludgeon Brothers path of destruction?

The WWE Universe is still reeling from Carmellas shocking
Money in the Bank contract cash-in that saw her take the
SmackDown Womens Championship from Charlotte Flair.

The Queen isnt waiting very long to invoke her rematch
clause against The Princess of Staten Island. Tonight on
SmackDown LIVE, the two will sign the paperwork to make
their SmackDown Womens Championship rematch official for
WWE Backlash on Sunday, May 6. What will happen when these
two rivals meet in the squared circle?

One week after Asuka arrived on SmackDown LIVE as part of
the Superstar Shake-up, The Empress of Tomorrow will make
her official in-ring debut as a member of the blue brand
when she teams up with Becky Lynch to battle The IIconics.

Asuka's stunning SmackDown arrival came this past Tuesday
when she saved Becky and Charlotte Flair from a three-on-two
beatdown at the hands of SmackDown Women's Champion Carmella
and Billie Kay & Peyton Royce of The IIconics.

The duo of Kay & Royce has certainly been causing a stir
since they debuted on SmackDown LIVE, particularly when they
attacked Charlotte, which led to Carmella successfully
cashing in her Money in the Bank contract. But will The
IIconics be ready for Asuka?

Find out tonight at 8/7C on SmackDown LIVE.
