Here is the official preview of this week’s Smackdown airing on the SyFy Network tonight at 8pm (7pm Central). All storyline information gleaned from WWE.com and the Spoiler Free Match Listing comes from ProWrestling.net (although these matches may in fact spoil storyline information so look with caution).
What to Expect on Smackdown tonight:
- Booker T will address the controversial ending to the Summerslam World Heavyweight Title match between Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio. Will Del Rio get his rematch?
- Now that Dolph Ziggler has banished Chris Jericho from the WWE, it’s time for the current Money in the Bank winner to find something new to do. Could he have his eyes set on the World Heavyweight Title already or will he find a different way to make an impact?
- Randy Orton will be on the show on the hunt for new victims.
- At the Summerslam pre-show, Antonio Cesaro defeated Santino Marella to become the new United States champion. What will the former champion have to say about his loss?
- With Kaitlyn the new #1 contender to the Divas Championship and her sworn nemesis Eve Torres in a position of power on Smackdown, trouble may be brewing once again between the two.
- The feud between Sin Cara and Cody Rhodes will likely continue as Rhodes looks to remove Cara’s mask and show everyone how “ugly” he truly is.
