• Big Debut Announced For Tonight’s SmackDown Live

WWE has announced that SAnitY will finally make their SmackDown Live TV debut on tonight’s episode. As we noted before, SAnitY already worked a few WWE Live Event matches where they lost their bouts via DQ because of Killian Dain’s interference.

SAnitY will face former SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos tonight. Below is what WWE posted:

SAnitY debut against The Usos

“For weeks, the impending arrival of SAnitY has been hanging over SmackDown LIVE. No one knew what the chaotic crew of Eric Young, Alexander Wolfe and the monstrous Killian Dain had in store for Team Blue after joining during the Superstar Shake-up, but the wait is over, as they will be making their debut tonight.

SAnitY isn’t wasting any time, either, as they’ll be taking on The Usos in their first match on SmackDown LIVE. Will The Usos put the newcomers in their place, or will chaos reign in SAnitY’s arrival?”

• Who Else Will Be Involved In The Extreme Rules 2018 Main Event?
