Ahead of his match against Drew McIntyre at Clash at the Castle, The Bloodline will celebrate the monumental two years anniversary as a champion on the final SmackDown before the PPV. Will everything go smoothly for Roman Reigns or will Drew McIntyre spoil the celebration?
Karrion Kross In-Ring Debut
A few weeks back, Karrion Kross shockingly returned to WWE and attacked Drew McIntyre before confronting Roman Reigns. Since then, he only appeared cutting some promos against Drew. Now, he is all set to return to action and will make his in-ring debut against a mystery opponent. Will Karrion Kross be able to win his SmackDown debut match?
Ronda Rousey’s Final Judgment
Ronda Rousey has been pissed with WWE officials ever since the controversial finish at SummerSlam where she failed to defeat Liv Morgan. She attacked several officials the same night and was suspended due to these actions. She returned to the blue brand with the bag of money and paid her fine by emptying the cash in the ring. Her suspension was lifted last week, but this week a final judgment will be passed concerning her actions.
New Day vs Viking Raiders
New Day and Viking Raiders have been feuding for quite a while and this week, Viking Raiders and New Day will finally settle their differences in a Viking Rules match. Basically, it will be a no DQ tag-team match. So, which team will be able to come on top?
Hit Row vs Maximum Male Models
The returning Ashante Adonis & Top Dolla of Hit Row will face Mace & Mansoor of Maximum Male Models in a tag-team match. It will be the first match of Mace & Mansoor as a part of MMM. Will these models be able to defeat the shining Hit Row? Will Los Lotharios make their presence felt?
