USA Network will broadcast this week episode 982 of SmackDown Live from the FedExForum of Memphis, TN.
– Shinsuke Nakamura and Jeff Hardy will face each other in an unprecedented duel on the way to the Japanese title fight against AJ Styles in Money in The Bank. The rivalry emerged on Twitter over the past few days and Paige decided to move him to the WWE ring.
– Daniel Bryan will face Shelton Benjamin. This will be the first time in 8 years that both face, being the first time in WWE. It will also be the last confrontation of Bryan before his fight against Big Cass in Money in The Bank, so it is likely that the 7-foot wrestler makes some kind of appearance.
– Andrade “One Hundred” Souls will supposedly fight Sin Cara on SmackDown Live. And we say that supposedly because WWE has removed all reference to the announcement that was published last week. This rivalry comes as a result of a misunderstanding of Sin Cara behind the scenes, who hoped to find in Andrade “One hundred” Souls a familiar figure. However, things have changed in the past, especially since the former NXT champion is close to Zelina Vega.
– SmackDown General Manager Live Paige announced last week a match of the four participants in the of Money in The Bank ladder match who will fight on behalf of the blue brand. Charlotte Flair, Naomi, Becky Lynch and Lana will make an appearance.
