AJ Styles and John Cena were both absent from last week’s Smackdown Live due to touring overseas, but they will be back to hype what is surely the biggest match from the blue brand for Sunday’s SummerSlam. This and the seemingly confusing situation for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship will be expounded upon tonight.
Bray Wyatt has been buzzing around both champion Dean Ambrose and challenger Dolph Ziggler for the last two weeks and it will be interesting to see how he is involved in their picture just days before SummerSlam.
Paul Heyman had some strong words for Randy Orton ahead of his match with Brock Lesnar on Monday Night Raw, so I would expect the “Legend Killer” to have something to say in response.
While General Manager Daniel Bryan has claimed that Smackdown is in no rush to add any more championships just yet, many tag teams are clamoring for a championship match and soon. The women are also awaiting to see if a championship will be revealed in the near future as well.
All of these answers and more will be answered tonight on Smackdown Live! Here is all the information you need to tune into tonight’s show:
