The latest episode of WWE SmackDown Live took place in New Orleans, Louisiana on Tuesday, February 19. Let’s take a look at five Superstars and teams who gained/lost momentum during the show…
#5 Gained: Aleister Black
Aleister Black, Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa and Ricochet followed up their appearances on Monday Night Raw by picking up victories again on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live.
While Gargano & Ciampa defeated The Bar and Ricochet was victorious over Eric Young, Black gained the most momentum out of the NXT quartet by getting a clean 1-2-3 win against Andrade in the best match of the night.
It remains to be seen if these NXT stars have been permanently called up to the main roster or whether they have simply been added to the list of December call-ups (EC3,
Lars Sullivan, Lacey Evans, Nikki Cross and Heavy Machinery) by appearing on both shows. Either way, these New Orleans fans were a lot happier to see them than the crowd in Lafayette on Monday.
