Tonight’s SmackDown was taped this past Monday at the Performance Center. While the road to Backlash continues, the blue brand will also see the return of a live crowd tonight.
Last week’s show featured Universal Champion Braun Strowman accepting The Miz and John Morrison’s challenge for a Handicap Title match at Backlash, while SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley used the ropes to defeat Charlotte Flair. AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy also qualified for the semi-finals of the Intercontinental Championship tournament. Also, Dolph Ziggler and Sonya Deville defeated Otis and Mandy Rose in a Mixed Tag Team match.
Tonight’s show is set to feature the semi-final round for the Intercontinental Championship tournament, where Daniel Bryan will take on Jeff Hardy and AJ Styles will take on Elias. Expect things between Braun Strowman and The Miz and Morrison to heat up as well. We may also find out Bayley’s next challenger tonight.
In this article, let’s take a look at 5 things that might happen on SmackDown tonight.
5. The Forgotten Sons Pick A Fight With The New Day
SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day haven’t been seen on SmackDown since retaining their Titles in a Fatal-4-Way match against John Morrison & The Miz, The Forgotten Sons and Lucha House Party at Money In The Bank.
On the other hand, The Forgotten Sons are continuously demanding respect from the blue brand’s Tag Team division, which also indicates that they want to reach the top of the ladder soon.
Wesley Blake already pinned Kofi Kingston in a Tag Team match between The Forgotten Sons and The New Day, so Forgotten Sons would be looking for a shot at the Titles.
There’s a possibility that the two teams cross paths tonight, setting up a Title match between them at Backlash.
Speaking of The New Day, they’ll appear on A Moment Of Bliss on tonight’s SmackDown.
