WWE will head to the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina for Friday Night SmackDown this week. The company has been on a roll as far as ticket sales lately. The WWE SmackDown episode that airs tonight has received a number of announcements.
The SmackDown preview piece was posted on the WWE website along with three announcements. The preview featured two matches and a segment. Roman Reigns, the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, will talk about Drew McIntyre on this episode.
Roman Reigns’ segment is anticipated to be the main event of the UK event on September 3rd. One of the two matches announced is between Shinsuke Nakamura and Ludwig Kaiser. In order to challenge Gunther for the Intercontinental Championship, Nakamura will fight against Kaiser.
Finally, a Gauntlet Match between Raquel Rodriguez, Aliyah, Shotzi, Xia Li, Shayna Baszler, Natalya, and Sonya Deville will decide who will compete against Liv Morgan at WWE Clash at the Castle for the SmackDown Women’s Title. At SummerSlam, WWE scheduled a rematch between Ronda Rousey and Morgan for the SmackDown Women’s Title.
Rousey eventually submitted Morgan by tapping out just as the referee counted to three with Rousey’s shoulders pinned to the ground. Morgan received the victory. After the contest, Rousey made a heel turn by striking Morgan and the referee. Check out the full lineup for today’s WWE SmackDown below.
