WWE SmackDown Preview & Matches- 9 October 2020: Draft Night 1

Sasha Banks vs Bayley WWE SmackDown 9 October 2020

Check out the preview and matches announced for WWE Friday Night SmackDown episode of 9 October 2020(10/9/2020) featuring the night 1 of WWE Draft 2020, The Fiend’s First Match on the brand, SmackDown Women’s Title match, a court case, and more buildup for Hell in a Cell 2020.

Bayley(c) & Sasha Banks – WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship Match

While every fan was expecting this match at a PPV, it seems WWE is in rush to spoil this match with a DQ finish. The Golden Role models are at war ever since Bayley turned on Sasha Banks and attacked her brutally with a steel chair. After another attack at the Performance Center, Sasha retaliated at Clash of Champions.

How will this match in turn setup their encounter at Hell in a Cell or any other upcoming PPV? Find out tonight at SmackDown.

Kevin Owens vs The Fiend

Bray Wyatt/The Fiend has been on SmackDown for one year now. But still, he has not wrestled a single match on Friday Night during this period as WWE kept him exclusive to PPV events. But this will change tonight as The Fiend will wrestle in his first match at SmackDown against Kevin Owens.

Last week, Owens tried to enquire Alexa Bliss about how The Fiend is affecting him. This led to Fiend appearing moments later and attacking Owens. On Monday Night, Bray Wyatt appeared to talk on Owens on Firefly Fun House to warn him.

Big E vs Sheamus – Falls Count Anywhere Match

Big E and Sheamus are at odds ever since The New Day Powerhouse defeated Sheamus at Payback. The Irishman attacked Big E backstage which led to him being sidelined for a couple of weeks. Big E retaliated two weeks back to setup this Falls Count Anywhere match. With Big E already 2-0 up against Sheamus, this seems to be a given that he will get another win here. But will some other storyline emerge from here? Or will it lead to either of them leaving for RAW?

Otis To Defend Money in the Bank Contract In Court

The Miz is after Otis’ Money in the Bank briefcase and has used his pull(and lawyers) to sue Otis. This week, Otis is set to defend himself in the court to save the briefcase. Will the simpleton Otis be able to retain his MITB contract or will The Miz wins the case against him?
