Next Friday’s SmackDown marks WWE’s return to the road, as the show will be the company’s first live Raw or SmackDown broadcast outside ThunderDome, and with fans since the start of the pandemic.
They’ve already loaded up the show with a title match, and the usual Money in the Bank go home show multi-person affair. On Talking Smack today (July 10), they added a trios match that builds to a title match already booked on the July 18 PPV... and sets up another one that feels inevitable for some point in the near future.
SmackDown Tag champs Rey & Dominick Mysterio came to Edge’s aid when he was outnumbered by Universal champion Roman Reigns & The Usos on last night’s show. They’ll break up into teams ahead of Reigns and Edge’s one-on-one title match at Money in the Bank, and set the stage for Jimmy & Jey to challenge the Mysterios.
Here’s the updated card for July 16 in Houston’s Toyota Center:
- Bianca Belair (c) vs. Carmella for the SmackDown Women’s title
- Roman Reigns & The Usos vs. Edge & The Mysterios
- Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins vs. Big E vs. King Nakamura
