What to watch on Friday Night Smackdown
It’s been made official that Universal Champion Roman Reigns will defend his title at Day 1 against longtime nemesis Brock Lesnar. The Beast returned to the show last week and forced previous No. 1 contender Sami Zayn to challenge for the title that night, only for Reigns to make easy work of him. With that out of the way, Reigns and Lesnar are on a collision course for a title clash in Atlanta and will meet face-to-face in the ring tonight. We’ll see if any type of stipulation gets added to the match.
Speaking of the Bloodline, Smackdown Tag Team Champion The Usos will renew a longtime rivalry for themselves when defending the belts against the New Day at Day 1. Kofi Kingston made his return last week to aid King Woods and attack the champs.
In the women’s division, we’ll most likely get an official announcement tonight that Smackdown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair will put her title on the line against Toni Storm at the pay-per-view. The two have humiliated each other over the past few weeks and we’ll see this feud continue to escalte tonight. Also, after months of agitation, Naomi will finally get her hands on Sonya Deville as the two are set for a singles match tonight.
