SmackDown LIVE preview, July 2, 2019: Can Kingston bounce back from loss to Samoa Joe?

Samoa Joe got the WWE Championship Match he’s been looking for at Extreme Rules, and now he’s doing all he can to establish dominance over Kofi Kingston. Whether it’s putting Kingston to sleep with the Coquina Clutch or defeating the WWE Champion in Six-Man Tag Team action on Raw, The Samoan Submission Machine seems to have the upper hand as the title showdown draws near. Can he continue to one-up the champion? Find out tonight on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!

Can Kofi Kingston bounce back from Six-Man Tag Team loss to Samoa Joe?

Last night on Raw, Samoa Joe stood tall at the conclusion of a Six-Man Tag Team Match, taking WWE Champion Kofi Kingston out with the Coquina Clutch to win the battle against The New Day alongside The Viking Raiders.

As the championship showdown at Extreme Rules draws closer, can Kofi Kingston bounce back, or has Joe gained the upper hand?

Is Bayley ready for Alexa Bliss?

Last Tuesday on SmackDown LIVE, Nikki Cross defeated SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley to earn her best friend, Alexa Bliss, another opportunity to challenge The Hugger for the title at Extreme Rules.

With Cross ready to help her friend claim a title at any cost, is Bayley ready for another round with The Goddess?

Will The New Day continue to chase after Bryan & Rowan’s titles?

With WWE Champion Kofi Kingston preparing for the challenge of Samoa Joe, fellow New Day members Big E & Xavier Woods had quite the week for themselves, pinning SmackDown Tag Team Champion Daniel Bryan in an Eight-Man Elimination Tag Team Match on Raw, then defeating Bryan & Rowan in tag team action last Tuesday on SmackDown LIVE.

Have The New Day reestablished themselves as a threat to the SmackDown Tag Team Titles?

Will Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville continue to torment Ember Moon?

After weeks of torment, Ember Moon finally thought she had her chance at payback last Tuesday when she squared off with Sonya Deville, but a timely distraction from Mandy Rose gave Deville the opening to ram Moon face-first into the ring post and pick up the win.

Will The War Goddess still be out for retribution, or have Rose & Deville taught Moon a lesson?

Find out tonight on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!
