Possible Spoiler on Carmella’s Next Feud – Friday’s SmackDown saw Carmella return to the ring for a win over Ruby Riott. This was Carmella’s first singles match since losing to SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair on the April 2 SmackDown show.
We noted earlier how Mia Yim (aka Reckoning) was reportedly set to make her Smackdown debut on Friday’s Throwback edition of WWE SmackDown. In an update, Fightful Select reports that WWE had plans for Yim to begin a feud with Carmella but the match was nixed as WWE had to add in some of the throwback content to fit the theme of the show.
It’s likely that the Carmella vs. Yim feud will still happen when the former RETRIBUTION member debuts on this Friday’s SmackDown, unless the debut is delayed again. There’s still no word on if Yim will keep her Reckoning gimmick or if she will go back to using the Mia Yim name like she used in WWE NXT, but we will keep you updated.
Stay tuned for more on Yim’s main roster future.
