WWE Smackdown Preview (10/09/2019)-Kofi Kingston, The Undertaker, King Of The Ring
WWE’s visit to the world’s most famous arena continues for one more night as Smackdown Live for this week also emanates from this venue. This would be the final night before Clash of Champions PPV takes place on this Sunday night. So there would be massive hype ups for the one single night of the year where all the championships present in the WWE stays on the line.
The WWE Championship picture will be the headliner of tonight’s show as the champion returns to the same arena that witnessed his birth in wrestling. What will happen when he returns here just days before his title defense at the upcoming PPV. The emotional journey will continue for another man that is The Undertaker who is returning to the show as a special attraction. Also, the other title match storylines will continue when Smackdown emanates from the Madison Square Garden in New York City.
The WWE Champion Kofi Kingston will head into Madison Square Garden with a throwback picture in his mind. This is the arena where he announced his arrival to the pro-wrestling world, a decade ago. Ten years ago, this venue witnessed his fight against Randy Orton who already became a Wrestlemania main-eventer by then. Cut to 2019, WWE.com pointed out what we can expect on his journey back to the same arena,
“WWE Champion Kofi Kingston is returning to where the spark was first lit. When SmackDown LIVE returns to Madison Square Garden this Tuesday night, it will also mark Kingston’s return to the location that put him on the map. In a truly full-circle moment, Kofi’s incredible journey will bring him to back to MSG, where he memorably smashed Randy Orton through a table in 2009, as he now once again engages in an ongoing battle with The Viper. What will Kingston’s return to The World’s Most Famous Arena bring?”

For the past several weeks, Randy Orton has been beating Kofi Kingston up with the help of the Revival. The newly created FTRKO seemed dominant against Kofi and New Day members as Xavier Woods is out of the equation. Could tonight finally mark the rebound point for the WWE and SmackDown tag team champions? We hope so as this is what they need to do before Clash of Champions PPV looms in.

A special attraction for this episode of SmackDown is going to be The Undertaker whose name has become synonymous with Madison Square Garden arena. He had plenty of memories here who now looks forward to making more such with tonight’s sudden show-up. There’s no update available on what he could be doing on the show. But it is likely to be a one-off appearance just to please the New York wrestling fans.
The storyline between Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan has taken a massive turn, last week. Rowan, not only delivered a beatdown on Reigns but also turned on Bryan that was unthinkable. This set up a predictable matchup where Reigns and Rowan meet at Clash Of Champions. But before that, the Big Dog has to bounce back before squaring off against the monster in Rowan.
The second semifinal for the King of the Ring tournament is set on tonight’s episode of SmackDown Live. After Baron Corbin pulled off the win on WWE Raw, we anticipate getting the other finalist who will face him at Clash Of Champions between Elias and Chad Gable. The latter one is the current favorite to secure the win and go to compete in a PPV match considering the unpredictability of the KOTR tourney.
After the heel-turn of Bayley, the landscape of the Women’s Division has drastically changed. Pairing herself with Sasha Banks, makes her look unstoppable at this point. However, on WWE Raw, the babyface force picked up a big win over the rest two members of the Four-Horsewomen faction. Could Charlotte Flair keep up the momentums before the title match set at Clash Of Champions? We’ll find out the answer when Smackdown airs from Madison Square Garden, tonight.
