WWE: SmackDown Live Preview 9/4/18
Here is what they have on tap for tonight’s show.
All of the below is according to wwe.com except for the sarcasm…that’s me.
Triple Threat Match set as search for new SmackDown Tag Team Championship challengers continues
“Last week, The Bar defeated The Colons and Gallows & Anderson to move one step closer to a SmackDown Tag Team Title Match against The New Day at the WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event. Sheamus & Cesaro’s opponents will be determined in a Triple Threat Match on this week’s edition of SmackDown LIVE.
Will it be a Happy Rusev Day for The Bulgarian Brute and The Drama King, who are seemingly back on the same page? Or will three-time champions The Usos or the unpredictable SAnitY put a damper on the celebrations?”
MY BIGGEST QUESTION IS WHETHER THE AIDEN ENGLISH TURN WILL COME TONIGHT OR IF HE WILL WAIT UNTIL THEY HAVE THE TITLE OPPORTUNITY FIRST. TO BE HONEST ALL OF THESE TEAMS I WOULD BE FINE WITH WINNING. EXTRA POINTS GO TO SANITY IF NIKKI CROSS SHOWS UP.
Will Samoa Joe actually go to AJ Styles’ home?
“With a WWE Championship rematch scheduled between AJ Styles and Samoa Joe for the WWE Hell in a Cell event, The Samoan Submission Machine has continued to push the Phenomenal One’s buttons to try and throw the champion off his game. Joe crossed the line once again last week, calling the WWE Champion’s wife while AJ watched in the ring, saying he was going to pay a visit to the Styles home this week. Will Joe make good on his words?”
HAS THERE EVER BEEN A SEGMENT FROM SOMEONE’S HOUSE THAT WAS WORTH A CRAP. AUSTIN/PILLMAN WAS OK, BUT DIDN’T PUT THEM IN THE GOOD GRACES OF THE NETWORK. THE ORTON/HHH DEAL WAS RIDICULOUS AS ALL HELL AND I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT THE WRITING IS BETTER NOW THAN IT WAS THEN. SAMOA JOE CAN SPIN GOLD OUT OF SHIT A LOT BUT SHOULD HE HAVE TO?
How will Daniel Bryan & Brie Bella bounce back?
“Last Tuesday, Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella were the targets of a 4-on-2 attack at the hands of The Miz, Maryse, Andrade “Cien” Almas & Zelina Vega, capped off with The Awesome One putting Bryan in the “Yes!” Lock and forcing him to watch as Maryse planted Brie into the canvas with a devastating DDT.
As their Mixed Tag Team Match at WWE Hell in a Cell rapidly approaches, will Bryan & Brie be out for payback on The It Couple?”
HOPEFULLY NOT WITH DUELING SUICIDE DIVES. AFTER SEEING BRIE LAST NIGHT I AM WORRIED AS HELL ABOUT HER PORTION OF THAT MATCH. SHE LOOKED OK ON SMACKDOWN LAST WEEK BUT THE RAW PERFORMANCE WAS ATROCIOUS. WE WILL SEE I GUESS. HOPEFULLY MIZ WILL JUST TALK.
What’s next for Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch?
Will The Irish Lass Kicker continue her rampage, or will The Queen get the upper hand on her former best friend?”
“STONE COLD” BECKY LYNCH SHOULD CONTINUE TO MAKE CHARLOTTE’S LIFE A LIVING HELL UNTIL SHE WINS THE BELT. SHE’S SO CLOSE TO BEING THE MOST OVER PERSON ON THE ROSTER THAT IT WORRIES ME THEY WILL SCREW THE POOCH AGAIN.
