WWE books the card for SmackDown next week

Jeff Hardy isn’t the only hook for the May 8 SmackDown. It’s the last show before next Sunday’s Money in the Bank PPV, and that brings all kinds of ‘go home’ show excitement.

For one thing, we’re getting a little MYSTERY PARTNER action! Daniel Bryan & Drew Gulak have had it with Sami Zayn’s Baron Corbin’s Artist Collective, and they’re bringing a third for trios action against the Intercontinental champ King, Shinsuke Nakamura, and Cesaro.

We’ll also be treated to a women’s tag match. Sasha Banks & SmackDown Women’s champ Bayley tried to sneak attack Tamina on last night’s show, but Lacey Evans (and her shoe) showed up to even the odds. That set-up a two-on-two for next Friday that’ll give us a preview of Bayley’s PPV title defense against Tamina.

And speaking of championship match previews, Universal titleholder Braun Strowman’s had enough of Bray Wyatt’s stories and puppets. They’ll be face-to-face in the ring next Friday, just days before their Money in the Bank battle.
