This is the preview for WWE SmackDown episode of 6 August 2021.
Show – WWE Friday Night SmackDown
Date – 6 August 2021
Location – Amalie Arena, Tampa, FL, US
Time – 8 PM EST(7 August 2021 12 AM GMT/5:30 AM IST)
Last week’s Friday Night SmackDown episode pulled off two serves in one go. Finn Balor, who was about to sign a contract for the Universal Championship match for SummerSlam, was attacked by Baron Corbin. And John Cena ended up signing the contract in his place.
The second swerve was for Sasha Banks to return and save Bianca Belair. It all happened only to set up a bigger backstabbing incident later in the show. What does WWE has planned for this week’s episode to follow up on those storylines? Let’s find out in our preview.
How will Roman Reigns Respond to John Cena Signing Contract?
Despite Cena calling him out multiple times, Roman Reigns declined the challenge and instead decided to face Finn Balor. If it had not been for Baron Corbin attacking Balor and Cena taking out Corbin, John Cena would not have got the chance to sign the contract and set up his meeting with Roman at SummerSlam.
All this happened right in front of Roman Reigns’ eyes and he could not do anything about it. He will surely have some response, though. What will it be?
Will Sasha Banks End Bianca Belair’s Title Reign?
Sasha Banks had been away from WWE ever since losing the SmackDown Women’s title to Bianca Belair at WrestleMania 37. Sasha returned only last week and saved Bianca from the double trouble of Carmella and Zelina Vega. If that was not all, Sasha went on to hug Bianca to indicate that she is right beside “the EST of WWE.” It was all this show of fondness that made the backstabbing later that night all that sweet.
How will Bianca Belair respond to that turn from Sasha? Will the title match for SummerSlam be announced tonight?
