Hello everyone, it’s Tuesday night and that means it’s time to visit the SmackDown hotel! 2017 is here and the SmackDown Live crew are ready to ring in the new year by beating Raw in the ratings for a third straight week.
The common consensus is that SmackDown Live has been a better show than Raw since the brand split; largely due to being an hour shorter and thus featuring far less filler. Those who had fell down the card were given a chance to shine on SmackDown, i.e. Dolph Ziggler, Heath Slater, and most impressively, The Miz. Not to mention the rise and consistent greatness of AJ Styles. Yep, it’s been a hell of a year for SmackDown Live and with the return of John Cena and The Undertaker, expect the blue brand to go from strength to strength in 2017.
Tonight’s show features a huge Intercontinental Championship match between The Miz and Dean Ambrose. The Lunatic Fringe has been a thorn in the Champion’s side recently, which prompted Miz and Maryse to take it out on Renee Young. Can Ambrose end The Miz’s impressive title reign? Also on tonight’s broadcast, Dolph Ziggler takes on Baron Corbin, the identity of La Luchadora is a hot topic, and we have a big contract signing between John Cena and AJ Styles. We’re in for an action-packed show for sure, so sit back and enjoy!
