Roman Reigns & Solo Sikoa Face-to-Face with Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens
Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa, who are set to challenge for the undisputed tag team titles at the Night of Champions, will come face to face against the champions Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens. Reigns does not trust The Usos anymore to bring back the titles and he decided to do the task himself. But is there anything new to talk between The Bloodline, Sami and Owens. Will this segment turn into a brawl as it usually happens? And what will be The Usos’ role in this if any?
LWO vs The Usos
Talking more about The Usos, they will be in action in a tag team match. They had a little argument with Latino World Order on last week’s episode of SmackDown. It set up a tag team match between Jimmy & Jey and Rey Mysterio & Santos Escobar. Will the Usos be able to beat LWO in order to prove they are still worthy?
Pretty Deadly vs The Brawling Brutes
Last week, Pretty Deadly was following around when they mocked The Brawling Brutes backstage. As a result, their first tag team match on SmackDown was set as they were scheduled to face Butch & Ridge Holland of the Brawling Brutes this Friday. Will Pretty Deadly start their journey on SmackDown with a win?
LA Knight & Rick Boogs vs The Street Profits
During last week’s SmackDown Lowdown, LA Knight argued with the Street Profits where he claimed that he could defeat them by teaming with anyone. Now, this Friday he will try to prove his words when he teams up with Rick Boogs to take on The Street Profits. Will he get to eat his words or will he be able to prove himself right?
Grayson Waller Effect with AJ Styles
Last Friday, Grayson Waller debuted on SmackDown to take offense on being a late pick in the draft. He requested Adam Pearce to book the Grayson Waller Effect segment for the May 19 episode with the SmackDown’s side winner of the World Heavyweight Championship tournament semi-final. As a result, AJ Styles will be the special guest on this talk show. Will these two revisit their rivalry from NXT once again? Does this segment take AJ’s attention of the World Heavyweight final?
What Else to Expect?
Damage CTRL has lost two title opportunities now after Iyo Sky failing to beat Bianca Belair at Backlash, and Bayley and Dakota Kai failing to win women’s tag titles last week on SmackDown. Both match ended after some miscommunication between the group. Will it lead to a fallout?
Who will Karrion Kross target next?
