WWE: SmackDown Live Preview 9/11/18
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.
Brie Bella and Maryse to square off this Tuesday on SmackDown LIVE
With the anticipated collision impending, SmackDown LIVE General Manager Paige announced over the weekend that Brie and Maryse will face off this Tuesday. The match will be Maryse’s first singles match in roughly seven years.
Who will leave SmackDown LIVE with momentum heading into WWE Hell in a Cell? “
I DO NOT PREDICT THIS MATCH TO BE ANY GOOD. THERE, I WENT OUT ON A LIMB. I JUST HOPE THEY KEEP IT BASIC AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE DON’T LET BRIE TRY ANYMORE SUICIDE DIVES. THEY ARE SCARING ME AND SHE HAS A CHILD.
The Queen and Sonya Deville ready for showdown on SmackDown LIVE
With Flair’s impending title defense against Becky Lynch at the WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event looming, will The Queen be prepared to focus on the task at hand this Tuesday night? Or, will the tough-as-they-come Deville, who will surely have Mandy Rose watching her back, be able to capitalize on the champion’s weeks of turmoil with her former best friend and pick up the biggest victory of her career?”
IF BECKY STAYS AWAY FROM RINGSIDE I WILL BE COMPLETELY SHOCKED. ON A POSITIVE NOTE, THIS SHOULD ACTUALLY BE A GOOD MATCH UNLIKE THE ONE ABOVE. MAYBE CHARLOTTE WILL HIT A MOONSAULT? NAH.
Can Andrade “Cien” Almas handle R-Truth?
Truth took to social media, reflecting on how blessed he is to have not only main evented against The A-Lister last week, but to now be on a winning streak (of one match, but still — streak’s a streak). These musings caught the attention of Almas & Vega, who mocked Truth’s “streak” and said that Almas would be more than happy to be the one to bring it to an end. This back-and-forth caught the attention of SmackDown LIVE General Manager Paige, who officially made Truth vs. Almas for this Tuesday night with the “streak” on the line.”
I HOPE R-TRUTH GOES ON A GOLDBERG ASS WINNING STREAK UNTIL WRESTLEMANIA. PRETTY SURE THEY ARE ROUGHLY THE SAME AGE AND BILL JUST GOT THE UNIVERSAL TITLE IN THE NOT TOO DISTANT PAST. ANYWAY, ALMAS SHOULD TRUCK HIM REALISTICALLY.
Hardy and Nakamura to settle their unfinished business
“United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura and Jeff Hardy have been bickering and battling, for months. Now, with Jeff Hardy’s Hell in a Cell clash with Randy Orton only days away at the WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event, Hardy feels as though he must “cleanse his soul” and resolve his unfinished business with The King of Strong Style.
SmackDown LIVE General Manager Paige agreed, and revealed that this showdown will be the first match to take place on SmackDown LIVE:
Will The Charismatic Enigma be able to pick up pivotal momentum heading into his clash with The Viper by defeating Nakamura? Or, will WWE’s Rockstar rock Hardy to his core and put the fan favorite at a decisive disadvantage as he prepares to enter The Apex Predator’s line of fire?”
IS THIS STILL A THING? MY GUESS IS RANDY SHOWS UP, HOPEFULLY COSTING JEFF THE MATCH. I REALLY DON’T NEED TO SEE JEFF WIN A NON TITLE MATCH TO BUILD THIS THING. NAKAMURA NEEDS ALL THE MOMENTUM HE CAN GET. JEFF IS BULLETPROOF.
Rusev Day and The Bar clash for a SmackDown Tag Team Title opportunity at WWE Hell in a Cell
“SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day will find out who they will defend their titles against this Sunday at WWE Hell in a Cell on Tuesday, as Rusev Day and The Bar clash for the right to face the titleholders in San Antonio.
The bout is the culmination of a tournament set up by Paige to determine the champions’ next opponents. Sheamus & Cesaro defeated Gallows & Anderson and The Colons in one Triple Threat Match to advance, while The Bulgarian Brute & Aiden English bested SAnitY’s Eric Young & Killian Dain and The Usos to move one step closer to championship glory.
Who will earn themselves a championship opportunity?”
I’M GOOD WITH EITHER. IT WOULD BE NICE IF AIDEN WINS A TITLE AND DOESN’T DO THE OBVIOUS TURN ON RUSEV THOUGH.
THAT’S ALL THEY HAVE LISTED FOLKS. I HOPE YOU ENJOY THE PROGRAM AND MORE IMPORTANTLY CONTINUE TO READ MY INCORRECT PREDICTIONS FOR ALL WWE PROGRAMMING WEEKLY. IT’S MOST APPRECIATED.
