After a decent Backlash pay-per-view last Sunday, WWE will be bringing the fallout of the PPV on tonight’s SmackDown. This week’s episode of SmackDown was already taped at the WWE Performance Center last week.
At Backlash, Braun Strowman defeated John Morrison and The Miz in a Handicap match to retain the Universal Championship, while Bayley & Sasha Banks defeated The IIconics and Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross in a Triple-Threat Tag Team match to retain the Women’s Tag Team Championship. In addition, Sheamus defeated Jeff Hardy.
Tonight’s show is set to feature the return of the Firefly Fun House and the debut of Matt Riddle. Also on the line-up is Mandy Rose as special guest on Miz TV and AJ Styles’ celebration of winning the Intercontinental Championship. Expect more things to happen, as the road to Extreme Rules begins.
In this article, let’s take a look at 6 things that could happen on SmackDown tonight.
6. Drew Gulak Interrupts AJ Styles’ Intercontinental Title Win Celebration
