Civil War Prelude
Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns will be appearing on the final SmackDown before Money in the Bank just a day before he faces The Usos in the Bloodline Civil War match. The Usos attacked Solo Sikoa last week after his match against Sheamus. What plan does Roman have to counter The Usos heading into the tag team match?
Asuka vs Flair
Women’s division has a new title and ceremoniously, Charlotte Flair is the first challenger for it. Asuka was handed the new WWE Women’s Championship a few weeks back, just before Flair made her return for the first time since WrestleMania 39. She was quick to challenge her former nemesis Asuka for a title match. Asuka accepted the title defense gleefully while Bianca Belair was left redfaced waiting in the wing. Will Asuka prevail here or is Flair ready for her?
Pretty Deadly vs Owens & Sami
Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn will face the newest tag team in Smackdown in Pretty Deadly in their own backyard. Former NXT & NXT UK Tag Team Champions Pretty Deadly won a gauntlet match two weeks back to set up a title match, which will be in their home in London. Will they be able to dethrone the undisputed champions though?
