WWE books the card for SmackDown this week

WWE has released its preview for Friday Night SmackDown this week and the promotion is promising four segments:

  • Braun Strowman confronts Bray Wyatt

Strowman technically returned to television last week via video to challenge Wyatt to a match at SummerSlam. It seemed to be the start of a new character direction for the big man, and we’ll likely learn more about that here. A title match between the two has since gone official for the event on Aug. 23.

  • Triple Brand Battle Royal

This was already announced. The winner will receive a shot at the SmackDown women’s championship at SummerSlam. No word on participants just yet.

  • Alexa Bliss will be interviewed

She was attacked by Wyatt, then stopped another attack by simply touching his face. Naturally, there are questions to be asked and answered.

  • Big E vs. John Morrison

E’s singles career continues with a match against Morrison, one WWE is calling the “latest step in his quest towards a title.”

That’s the show so far.
