Who is coming after Dean Ambrose’s Intercontinental Championship?
As The Road to WrestleMania heats up, it is always exciting to see which Superstars will look to seize a golden opportunity at The Showcase of the Immortals. While the future of the WWE Title will surely be determined inside the Elimination Chamber, and one of the many female competitors mentioned above could step in to attempt and dethrone Alexa Bliss, the contention for SmackDown LIVE’s other two titles are very much up for grabs.
Case in point: Dean Ambrose overcame former titleholder The Miz in a Lumberjack Match one week ago. Will this take the A-Lister out of contention? What about a Superstar like Baron Corbin, who made his presence known in the Royal Rumble Match by eliminating Braun Strowman? Could Dolph Ziggler use his new aggression to try to knock off The Lunatic Fringe? Dare we mention … James Ellsworth, who is no stranger to Ambrose?
Also, consider that SmackDown Tag Team Champions American Alpha dispensed of former champions The Wyatt Family in their title rematch two weeks ago. With Randy Orton turning his attention to WrestleMania’s main event, it is a strong bet that the field is now wide open for new No. 1 contenders. But who will it be? The Usos? The Ascension? The Vaudevillains? Perhaps close cohorts Kalisto & Apollo Crews will look to throw their hats (and masks) into play? Find out who jumps in to fill the void, tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network.
