WWE: What to Expect from Tonight’s Smackdown Live: July 24, 2018
WWE Raw has heated things up for Summerslam with a solid episode, last night. Tonight, Smackdown Live will have to make a comeback to keep the competition ongoing to the flagship brand.
This is why we are likely to know about the prime title bouts from the blue brand at the biggest event of the summer.
The general manager has hyped-up this week’s edition of Smackdown with a Summerslam announcement. We expect her to declare the new contender’s name, whereas, a women’s match will also take place with the same goal in mind. It is the likely main event of the show to take place at the Ford Arena in Evansville, Indiana.
Paige had raised the bar high for this week’s Smackdown with her upcoming announcement. She is going to name the next opponent for AJ Styles at Summerslam. We do know that the GM likes to bring more competition to the roster, always.
So she will make a series of matches to determine the participant. Spoilers from the internet suggest that none other than Samoa Joe is going to be the next challenger for the Phenomenal One. It is huge news for the fans, as they will get to witness a dream feud on Smackdown.

Becky Lynch is on a roll ever since the Money in the Bank PPV event has gone by. She is within a winning streak that is going to hand her a title opportunity at Summerslam. Check out the updates from WWE.com about her match on tonight,
“After Becky Lynch turned in another impressive victory on the July 17 edition of SmackDown LIVE against Mandy Rose, The Irish Lass Kicker made an impassioned post-show warning that Straight Fire is coming after the SmackDown Women’s Championship. General Manager Paige was definitely listening, as she declared that Lynch will square off against The Princess of Staten Island.”
The Irish Lass-kicker is out of the Smackdown title picture for almost two years now. Both Charlotte and Asuka have received their chances for the title. Now it should be the turn for Lynch to have the opportunity. So she is the favourite to defeat Carmella on tonight’s contest.
Daniel Bryan had officially entered the feud against The Miz after a long wait. It was a personal feud by all means that reincarnated last week with disrespectful acts from the Miz towards Kane. Bryan would be more than ready to put his hands on him confirming a match at Summerslam.

Jeff Hardy should miss Smackdown after Orton’s attack last week. We will see in which way the US title picture heads onto, right now in the former champion’s absence.
Plus, the Bludgeon Brothers will wait for their next challenge after toppling Team Hell No at Extreme Rules. A tag team tournament will start tonight to determine their next opponents.
