WWE Smackdown Preview (7/8/18): AJ Styles Returns, Tag Team Tourney Finale, Summerslam Hypes
Smackdown has recently become the playground of a Samoan Submission Machine. He is putting the entire WWE locker room on notice. Especially his strong message to the WWE Champion’s family went beyond the limit, last week. We expect this to end as the ‘face that runs this place’ returns to his show, this week.
The tag team tournament will continue on the show. We expect to see a big matchup that will give us new number one contenders. It will also set up a new championship match for Summerslam.
Also, the two challengers for the women’s title will test their friendship, as Smackdown comes live tonight from the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.
WWE Universe missed AJ Styles a lot last week. He is the strongest champion present in the current WWE scenario. Despite this, Samoa Joe went on to insult him. He did not even bother to verbally attack him below the belt mentioning his family. We wish to see AJ Styles giving it back to his challenger after coming back to Smackdown. A verbal confrontation is mandatory to heat up the scene at Summerslam.
Two veteran teams will collide in the tag-team tourney finale. The New Day and The Bar won their respective matches to set up an anticipated matchup on this week’s card. These two tag teams tore each other up during their rivalry in 2016. We expect nothing less on tonight’s edition, (courtesy WWE.com),
“On SmackDown LIVE, Cesaro & Sheamus will battle The New Day for the opportunity to take on The Bludgeon Brothers for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship at SummerSlam. Will The Bar rise to a title opportunity at The Biggest Event of the Summer? Or will The New Day be bringing The Power of Positivity into the titleholders’ very dark world?”
Chances are high The New Day will win this contest. The Bludgeon Brothers are a heel tag team which means they need a babyface team at Summerslam. Two heel teams clashing against each other is the most unlikely scenario. So New Day should get another tag team title opportunity.
Daniel Bryan challenged The Miz for a match at Summerslam last week. But he denied it straight and gave a further clarification on the social media. He is not ready to compete Bryan by any means. Smackdown GM might have to interfere in this situation to make the match official for the PPV.
Becky Lynch is definitely not happy with the way Charlotte Flair stole her thunder on Smackdown. So their friendship is in jeopardy en route to Summerslam. They will have to get along with each other, as The IIconics challenged them in a match. We doubt whether they will succeed in doing so.
Lastly, the United States title match at Summerslam is now official. Hardy will get another chance against Nakamura. The surprising thing is that Randy Orton is not in this match despite the dominance since return. The title match is likely to change on tonight’s Smackdown. Orton will try to jump into the mix making it a triple threat.
