Welcome to the final stop-gap before the highly-anticipated Survivor Series!
Tonight’s show is set to feature two Championship matches that could alter the landscape of Survivor Series. Charlotte Flair returns to her hometown to challenge Natalya for the Women’s Championship. Should Charlotte score a victory and win the Women’s Championship, she will suddenly have to face Alexa Bliss on Sunday night. The other match sees Baron Corbin defend his US Championship against Sin Cara, with the winner moving on to face The Miz at Survivor Series. It seems unlikely that Sin Cara will win because The Miz has done a lot of work to build the match with Corbin and make it even remotely interesting. Let us know if you think either title will change hands tonight.
Also on SmackDown Live tonight, The New Day will face Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. The New Day has a massive match coming this Sunday night against The Shield but tonight they must pass the test of Owens and Zayn. The latter two have been under much scrutiny as of late, seeing as they were sent home early from the European tour and there was much speculation as to why. Not to mention, The Shield are highly likely to appear on tonight’s show and either attack The New Day, or cost them their match.
Team Raw is expected to invade SmackDown Live tonight, a mere 5 days before Survivor Series. Kurt Angle’s job is very much at stake, so he is liable to launch an all-out attack tonight against Shane McMahon. Daniel Bryan also returns to SmackDown tonight, after being attacked by Kane on Raw a few weeks back. What will the General Manager and the Commissioner have to say before the showdown on Sunday, or will they even get a chance to speak? It’s all hands-on-deck tonight!
That’s the preview for tonight’s SmackDown Live. Remember to download the Ringside Talk app and let us know your thoughts and what you’re excited to see before Survivor Series. Enjoy the show!
