Bengaluru, December 5: With tensions looming around the authority figures in the brand, Smackdown Live will look forward close the year with a bang.
There’s one last stop waiting for them on December 17th in the form of Clash of Champions for which the buildup will continue on tonight’s episode and a main event which could cause a huge is in store for the night.
With two weeks remaining from the brand-exclusive PPV, this week’s Smackdown Live will come live from the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California.
The episode will stream live at 6.30 AM via Sony Ten 1 Network on Wednesday (December 6), while the repeat will be aired at 5 PM and 10 PM later the same day. (December 6)
The fallouts from last week’s main event will be dealt tonight. Randy Orton competed against Kevin Owens in a no disqualification matchup with Sami Zayn barred from ringside but he made his presence felt when the fight was taken to the ramp and attacked Orton’s leg to cost him the match.
The Viper is furious over that and will definitely look to payback. Orton’s ally on Smackdown, Shinsuke Nakamura is expected to take on Zayn in singles match to set up a potential tag team match at Clash of Champions PPV.
Due to Owens and Zayn causing trouble every time on the show, Shane McMahon will definitely be furious with Daniel Bryan, who did not fire the heel superstars and let them compete. But, weeks after weeks, they are stealing wins by cheating and this will raise the tension between the two authority figures on tonight’s show.
We will also see a huge fallout in the WWE Championship picture. Last week, Jinder Mahal attacked the Singh Brothers after their matchup against AJ Styles. He might split with his protégés over frustration for not getting to the head of the reigning champ. Tonight, we will see what awaits the duo who are with Jinder on Smackdown Live from day one.
The Riott Squad will continue to carry the momentum on their side after taking out to big names in the roster and tonight, they are expected to make their presence felt in the singles main event match between Charlotte Flair and Tamina.
Also, Zack Ryder and Mojo Rawley will build up their rivalry following their breakup as a tag team, last week.
Also, three huge championship matches were announced on WWE.com, earlier. This will definitely add hype for the upcoming Clash of Champions PPV as we will witness the buildups around these matches, tonight.
WWE have announced a singles match between Baron Corbin and Bobby Roode on Smackdown. Plus, The New Day will compete against Rusev and Aiden English in a first-time matchup.
