Smackdown Live opened with a new video intro package and theme song and then Bryan kicked off the show with a YES chant.
The whole new roster was present at the ringside as Shane was addressing them. He came up with a blockbuster announcement that starting from September 11, Smackdown Live will hold its own PPV, Backlash. Now, since there’s no opponent for Dean Ambrose at Summerslam, they have to find one.
In order to do that, Bryan announced there will be a Six-pack challenge at Smackdown Live, tonight. Five competitors will be John Cena, Bray Wyatt, Dolph Ziggler, Baron Corbin and AJ Styles. The sixth spot will be open for all and to fill up the spot they will conduct a Battle Royal. The winner of the battle royal will go on to fill up the spot.
