Daniel Bryan to reveal the first-ever SmackDown LIVE Top 10 Superstars List
Last week, Daniel Bryan announced that voting was open to Team Blue's Superstars for the first-ever SmackDown LIVE Top 10 Superstars List. SmackDown LIVE's General Manager will reveal the initial rankings tonight on USA Network, giving the roster an idea of where they stand among their peers.
Criteria that SmackDown Superstars needed to consider when voting included locker room leadership, athletic skill and overall talent. No Superstars were allowed to vote for themselves, and neither Bryan nor Commissioner Shane McMahon cast a vote in the rankings.
Who will be among Team Blue's top 10 competitors?
- As noted, tonight's SmackDown main event will feature Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens with the winner earning a shot at WWE Champion AJ Styles in the main event of the Fastlane pay-per-view in March. Sami and Owens took to Twitter this evening and wrote the following on the match:
Good friends.— Kevin Owens (@FightOwensFight) February 6, 2018
Sami and I will be fine. We've been through this before and we will be again but tonight is about earning an opportunity at the @WWE Title and I'll stop at nothing to be the one that gets it.#PrizeFighter#KOMania3#TheKevinOwensShow
I can't remember a time where @FightOwensFight and I have been opponents and friends at the same time.— Sami Zayn (@SamiZayn) February 6, 2018
But tonight isn't about friendship, it's about opportunity.
It is about me becoming WWE Champion.
