These top SmackDown rumours might have a big impact on upcoming episodes. We'll examine some intriguing tales involving stars like Drew McIntyre, LA Knight, and Bobby Lashley, a former WWE champion. Hence, without further ado, let's look at some of the most popular SmackDown rumours:

Drew McIntyre, a SmackDown Superstar, had a busy weekend at WrestleMania 39 but regrettably left without winning the Intercontinental Championship with Sheamus. There have been allegations that McIntyre is dissatisfied with the innovative ideas made for him and the compensation provided.


Yet Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer has claimed that his absence is due to health issues. McIntyre, he claimed, has been dealing with health concerns ever since WrestleMania 39, and his absence has nothing to do with his discussions for a new WWE contract.

2. LA Knight and Bobby Lashley's plans changed last minute

LA Knight has swiftly risen to the top of the SmackDown faces list. Despite being a heel, the crowd has enjoyed his catchphrases and antics. Despite his popularity, the spectators were quite disappointed when WWE chose to skip him from WrestleMania 39.

''The crowd was disappointed both nights with nothing with LA Knight and not delivering the Bobby Lashley open challenge he had discussed. There was a plan for something between the two on night two, but it was pulled from the show and replaced by a segment with Lashley with the Andre the Giant trophy,'' said Dave Meltzer.

For some reason, the plans for Dave Meltzer to take part in Night 2 of WrestleMania 39 were abandoned, according to Dave Meltzer. Knight hinted that he would have something for "Mania, but nothing happened. WWE failed to utilise him, disappointing the audience.

The sale of WWE has now been completed, and Endeavor is the business's new owner. Although Triple H appeared on RAW last week to reassure everyone that the promotion is staying put, there is conjecture about what the future may contain and whether significant adjustments will be made. According to Bryan Alvarez of the Observer, "It's a countdown now to people getting whacked," substantial cuts may occur soon.

The sale of WWE was revealed not long after the peak of WrestleMania 39. Last week, Vince McMahon also resumed his prior position as Gorilla Position for RAW and as a participant in the creative direction. He wasn't there, though, in the SmackDown backstage area.
