Let’s check the complete details in this preview for Friday Night SmackDown episode of 2 July 2021.
Show – Friday Night SmackDown
Date – 2 July 2021
Location – Yuengling Center, Tampa, FL, US
Time – 8 PM EST(3 July 2021 12 AM GMT/5:30 AM IST)
How will Roman Reigns Respond to Edge?
Roman was gloating with pride over the fact that he has decimated each and every one of his opponents in his run as the Universal Champion in the last year. His mood completely changed though just as Edge’s music hit and he strolled down to attack Roman. Edge was about to put Roman in con-chair-to but Jimmy Uso saved Roman from further decimation.
Still, the segment would be considered one of the most damning situations for Roman in the last year. How will the Tribal Chief respond to this attack and having to defend the Universal Championship against Edge at Money in the Bank?
Also, Seth Rollins was disappointed that he was overlooked for the Universal Championship match. How will he meddle in this storyline?
Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn – Last Man Standing Match
Sami Zayn thought he has seen the last of Kevin Owens after he defeated Owens at Hell in a Cell. However, WWE has now booked them in the Last Man Standing match on tonight’s SmackDown for the Money in the Bank qualifier.
Sami was visibly upset for not being put in the MITB match right away. He even threatened Adam Pearce for playing with karma by forcing him to face Owens one more time. Will Karma play out as old friends and long time rivals clash one more time?
What More to Expect?
- Liv Morgan might be put in the women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match
- Bianca Belair vs Bayley storyline to continue
- Apollo Crews vs Big E storyline to continue
