What to watch on Friday Night Smackdown
Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns will return tonight as he gears up for his Last Man Standing Match against Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam. We last saw the “Tribal Chief” three weeks ago where he successfully defended his title against Riddle before being F5’d by a returning Lesnar. We’ll hear what the champ has to say three weeks out from the big title fight in Nashville.
Smackdown Women’s Champion Liv Morgan will make her first appearance on the show since cashing in her Money in the Bank contract on Ronda Rousey to become the new champ this past Sunday. She became just the third person to pin Rousey in a WWE ring and created an unforgettable moment on the show. In turn, we’ll hear from the former champ tonight, possibly to set up a rematch at SummerSlam.
Also on the show, we should get more build towards the SummerSlam showdown between Pat McAfee and Happy Corbin. Corbin attacked McAfee at ringside after Money in the Bank went off the air and officially accepted the challenge for a match in Nashville.
