What to watch for on Friday Night Smackdown

Just 24 hours before challenging Roman Reigns for the undisputed WWE Universal Championship, Kevin Owens will face one final obstacle from the Bloodline when going one-on-one with Solo Sikoa. KO has survived a bevy of attacks from the group in recent months and we’ll see if he can be the one to hand Sikoa his first loss on the main roster.

The Smackdown tag tournament continues tonight with a pair of semifinal matches. The team of Drew McIntyre and Sheamus will battle Hit Row and Imperium will take on Legado del Fantasma. We’ll see who inches a step closer to getting a shot at the Usos.

Also on tonight’s show, we’ll finally get Rey Mysterio going one-on-one with Karrion Kross. Kross has been goading and baiting Mysterio for the last few months and we’ll see who can gain the upperhand and establish some momentum heading into the rumble.
