Multiple cryptic teasers appeared on this week’s SmackDown

On this week’s episode of SmackDown, multiple glitches appeared before or after a few segments. It was a circular symbol made up of small bright lights and that led to multiple speculations.

This symbol showed up during a backstage segment involving Mandy Rose, during Elias’ entrance and also during the eight-man tag team match. Some fans believe that this might be a teaser for the debut of the recently signed Killer Kross while others believe these are teasers for Mustafa Ali’s return.

You can see the cryptic screen-glitch teasers captured during SmackDown here:

Rumors have suggested that the company is looking to “fast-track” Killer Kross’ run. Meaning, the Superstar might get to skip NXT and land in the main-roster directly.

However, a strong case could be made for this being a sign of Mustafa Ali as well. The SmackDown Superstar hasn’t been used on TV in quite some time and this could be the perfect return for him.

Or it could be a completely different person who the company is trying to tease fans with.


Either way, cryptic teasers are always exciting as they led to a lot many speculations. The pay-off for these images will be interesting to see and we hope that we get an answer very soon.

  • GM of AEW and impact wrestling

    Brian Kendrick Zero 1 as Leonardo Spanky maybe. One could hope, Brian Kendrick?

  • Luke

    Why would CM Punk’s return be signalled by a circle of lights?

  • Dub Blue

    Fiend vs Reigns is not happening at Mania. Reigns has Goldberg while Fiend is taking on Cena.

  • Dimebag8857

    Matt Hardy V2

  • Dirt McGirt

    I figured it was for Nia Jax since she’s ready to come back and Naomi needs a challenger for Mania.

  • Will Henderson

    what if it’s not Killer Kross or Mustafa Ali, but instead someone who is a big name and a former champ who was a voice for the voiceless.

  • Dirt McGirt

    The same type of disruptions were on last week’s show as well, just not as obvious.
