Roman Reigns & The Usos vs Edge & The Mysterios
Before the Universal Championship showdown on Sunday, the Head of the Table will form an alliance with his family to face opponents who threaten their family. On the other hand, Edge will try to continue the advantage that he has taken over Roman Reigns in the last three weeks.
The Mysterios(Rey and Dominik) are the current SmackDown Tag Team Champions. But, the Usos are a big threat for their titles. Which tag team will affect the match more in the 6 man tag team match?
More importantly, does Roman Reigns has some more cards up his sleeves to counter Edge? Will Seth Rollins try to get under Edge’s skin?
Bianca Belair vs Carmella – WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship Match
Bianca Belair was supposed to defend her title at Money in the Bank. But, an injury to Bayley has thrown those plans into the dustbin.
Bianca will now defend her title against Carmella at the first SmackDown episode in front of the fans. Carmella was bumped up(or down) from Money in the Bank Ladder match to a title match on SmackDown? Will this turn out to be a golden ticket for Carmella?
