USA Network will broadcast this week episode 986 of SmackDown Live from the SNHU Arena in Manchester, NH.
– AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura will meet again on SmackDown Live. WWE has not indicated that the fight is going to be a start, but we must bear in mind that both fighters will have a very important battle in Extreme Rules. AJ Styles will defend the WWE Championship against Rusev, while Shinsuke Nakamura will have a starting chance against Jeff Hardy for the US Championship. Which of the two will increase your estimate before the PPV?
– Miz TV will open the show with a special appearance by Team Hell No again. Daniel Bryan and Kane will answer the questions from The Miz, although we already know how the “A-Lister” interviews usually end. Will the Bludgeon Brothers appear before their title defense in Extreme Rules?
– WWE has confirmed the fight between Tye Dillinger and Samoa Joe. Last week, after the SmackDown Live broadcast, we saw R-Truth coming backstage and talking to “The Perfect 10”. Samoa Joe crossed the road and R-Truth caused a situation that led to a challenge from Tye Dillinger. “The Perfect 10” will regret it?
– Sin Cara has been discharged and will be able to compete against Andrade “Cien” Almas tonight. This fight has been chewing in recent weeks due to an attack by Almas behind the scenes. However, an injury to Sin Cara has meant that the fight is not held until this week.
– Asuka will have a second chance to get rid of James Ellsworth in a Lumberjack Match, where the female superstars of SmackDown Live will be present at ringside.
The General Manager of SmackDown LIVE, Paige, sought to give the WWE Universe a definitive end to the fight, so he immediately scheduled a rematch for tonight. This time, Ellsworth will have no place to run, as the SmackDown Women division will surround the ring for a Lumberjack Match.
