Friday Night SmackDown Preview, Go-Home Edition
Greetings one and all to our go-home edition of Friday Night SmackDown! Tonight's episode was, for the most part, pre-recorded last week from Detroit's Little Caesars Arena to allow our blue-brand Superstars time to make the cross-Atlantic flight ahead of tomorrow afternoon's WWE Clash at the Castle. The official WWE Friday Night SmackDown Preview dropped earlier this week and here's just some of what we have lined up for tonight:
- A Tale of Two Years: After surpassing the 730.5 day mark this week, we'll have a special celebration in honor of Roman Reigns' 2-year WWE Universal Championship run.
- Rousey's...Judgment Day: Rousey will meet with WWE Official Adam Pearce to discuss her "final judgment." What's that, you ask? You'll find out tonight.
- SmackDown In-Ring Debut: Former two-time NXT Champion Karrion Kross will make his SmackDown in-ring debut, sans the gladiator gear and with Scarlett . No opponent has yet been confirmed, but whomever it is will not win. It's not a spoiler, it's a prediction.
- Viking Rules Match: the New Day vs the Viking Raiders; this match is the equivalent of a Falls Count Anywhere match.
- SmackDown Faction In-Ring Debut: Maximum Male Models take on Hit Row in their first match.
- Singles Match: Butch will face Ludwig Kaiser ahead of Sheamus' Intercontinental Championship match against Gunther in Cardiff. Prediction, not a spoiler: Sheamus & Drew get a Chris/Eddie double-gold moment.
All this, and more, tonight on WWE Friday Night SmackDown!
