• “First Time Ever In WWE” Match On Tonight’s SmackDown Live

Daniel Bryan will face Samoa Joe for the first time ever in WWE on tonight’s episode of SmackDown Live. The winner of this match will be the final participant in the Men’s Money In The Bank Ladder match.

Below is what WWE posted regarding this match:

Daniel Bryan and Samoa Joe to clash for final spot in Money in the Bank Ladder Match

Daniel Bryan vs. Samoa Joe SmackDown Live 2018

“After defeating Jeff Hardy last Tuesday, Daniel Bryan has earned the right to face longtime rival Samoa Joe in a battle for the final place in the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match.

The two engaged in countless hard-hitting battles on the independent circuit that became the stuff of legend during their tumultuous history that spans longer than a decade-and-a-half. However, The Beard and The Samoan Submission Machine eventually went on divergent career paths, with fans hoping they would once again cross paths inside the ring. When Joe joined WWE and signed with NXT in 2015, the door opened for his rivalry with Bryan to be renewed. However, it seemed to be shut forever when Bryan announced his retirement from competition in Feb. 2016.

But with Bryan returning to full-time competition this spring and Samoa Joe arriving to Team Blue in the Superstar Shake-up, this rivalry will no longer be a dream. Joe seemed eager to remind Bryan of the punishment that awaits him after Bryan’s victory over Hardy. How will the leader of The “Yes!” Movement counter Joe’s relentless offense?

What will happen when these longtime adversaries clash once again in a dream match the WWE Universe has been waiting for? Find out tonight on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!”

• WWF Legend Increases Speculation About Him Making Impact Wrestling Debut

During a recent interview with Pro Wrestling Illustrated, Impact Wrestling’s Co-Executive Vice Presidents Don Callis & Scott D’Amore were asked about the possibility of bringing in former WWE Stars to Impact.

Callis then noted how he would be interested in bringing in former WWE Superstar and his friend, Chris Jericho, to Impact Wrestling:

“We’d even open the door for a guy like Chris Jericho if he wanted to come to Impact.”

A fan asked Jericho on Twitter about him possibly making Impact Wrestling debut in the future and Jericho increased the speculation by retweeting that tweet.

With Jericho most possibly trolling the internet fans here, but anything can happen in Pro Wrestling (especially after Jericho vs. Omega happened when fans at first thought they were just messing around on Twitter).
