WWE will be heading to The Ford Center in Evansville, Indiana this Friday for the next episode of SmackDown. Things will get more intense tonight as the Royal Rumble pay-per-view comes closer.
Last week’s show featured a night full of returns as John Morrison showed up to hint a potential reunion with The Miz. “The Celtic Warrior” Sheamus also made his long awaited return to the blue brand by attacking Shorty G. In addition, The Usos returned to reunite with Roman Reigns and save him from King Corbin and Dolph Ziggler.
Shinsuke Nakamura also unleashed an assault on Braun Strowman, while “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt attacked Daniel Bryan. Lacey Evans & Dana Brooke also managed to get a win against Sasha Banks & Bayley and Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross in a Triple Threat Tag Team match.
Tonight’s show is set to feature a Tag Team match between The Usos and King Corbin & Dolph Ziggler, while Sasha Banks and Lacey Evans will also go head-to-head. In addition, John Morrison will start a new journey in the WWE on Miz TV tonight.
So without further ado, let’s take a look at 7 things that might happen on SmackDown tonight.
7. John Morrison Returns To In-Ring Action
After months of anticipation, The Guru Of Greatness finally showed up in the WWE last week. John Morrison joined the blue brand and hinted a reunion with The Miz last week on SmackDown.
Picking up a fight with Bray Wyatt wasn’t a good decision for The Miz as he couldn’t handle the pressure. The A-Lister lost to Kofi Kingston last week. He couldn’t handle the loss and attacked Kingston after the match. He was hinted to be with Morrison after the match.
Tonight, he’ll host his former Tag Team partner on Miz TV. The A-Lister will be back to the old days where he’ll blame the fans for everything. He may also ask Morrison to join him as they both get along pretty well. The New Day may also interrupt Miz TV to demand an explanation from The Miz for his attack on Kingston.

There’s a possibility that Morrison will step up for him leading to a Morrison vs. Kingston/Big E bout tonight. We could also see a Tag Team match between both sides where Miz and Morrison use cheap tactics, leading to a SmackDown Tag Team Championship match at Royal Rumble.
