WWE has announced two buzzborthy bouts in addition to the previously booked Universal Championship match for tonight’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown.
First, the Usos will face the Street Profits in a non-title Championship Contenders match. Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins brawled with the SmackDown Tag Team Champions at the end of last week’s show. The previews of these matches, courtesy of WWE’s official website, are follows:
Last week, The Street Profits stuck their nose in The Bloodline’s business when they came to the aid of Finn Bálor. Now, Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins have the opportunity to catapult themselves back into the SmackDown Tag Team Title picture if they can beat The Usos in an intriguing Championship Contenders Match.
Will the former SmackDown Tag Team Champions bring the smoke against current titleholders Jimmy & Jey? Don’t miss what is guaranteed to be a classic tag team showdown, tonight at 8/7 C on SmackDown on FOX.
Next, Cesaro and Seth Rollins will reignite their rivalry in a singles match. The two stars feuded for several months earlier this year, and Rollins seemingly got the last laugh when he defeated “The Swiss Cyborg” on the July 9 episode of SmackDown. It’s fair to say Cesaro will hope to get some revenge when they clash again on Friday night:
Following his surprising change of attitude toward Edge last week, The Visionary of Drip looks to move past his SummerSlam setback when he takes on longtime adversary Cesaro.
Will Rollins display some of the skills he has claimed to have learned from his epic showdown with The Rated-R Superstar? Or will The Swiss Superman swing The Architect’s claims of a fresh start into an absolute tailspin? Find out on SmackDown, tonight at 8/7 C on FOX.
In the likely main event, Roman Reigns will defend the Universal Championship against Finn Balor. The former NXT Champion will finally get a shot at the gold after John Cena stole his shot against Reigns at WWE SummerSlam:
Last week on SmackDown, Finn Bálor interrupted Roman Reigns and The Bloodline during their Family Celebration to challenge The Head of the Table and finally get the Universal Title Match that he was denied at SummerSlam.
Although SmackDown ended in chaos, WWE.com has learned that this match is official. What will happen when Roman Reigns goes to war with The Prince for the Universal Championship? Find out tonight at 8/7 C on SmackDown on FOX!
