Some backstage mishaps led to their first match on SmackDown last night (July 18). A Maria Kanellis-assisted win over Sami Zayn will lead to their second, which will also serve as Mike Kanellis’ pay-per-view (PPV) debut, this Sunday at Battleground.
Will the Likeable One get his win back, or will the Power of Love get Kanellis off to a 2 - 0 start to his WWE career?
We’ll find out on July 23 in Philadelphia. The question is, does this get you more excited for Battleground?
Here’s what will likely be the final card:
- Randy Orton vs. Jinder Mahal (c) in a Punjabi Prison match for the WWE championship
- AJ Styles (c) vs. Kevin Owens for the United States title
- The New Day vs. The Usos (c) for the SmackDown tag team championship
- Charlotte Flair vs. Tamina vs. Lana vs. Natalya vs. Becky Lynch in an elimination 5Way to determine the #1 contender for the SmackDown women’s title
- John Cena vs. Rusev in a flag match
- Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Baron Corbin
- Sami Zayn vs. Mike Kanellis
- Aiden English vs. Tye Dillinger (Kickoff match)
