Last week’s edition of Friday Night SmackDown saw the fallout from WrestleMania Backlash. The newly crowned SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey successfully defended her title in an open challenge against the upstart Raquel Rodriguez. The Bloodline also went face to face with RK-BRO. 

Tonight is the highly anticipated tag team unification match.

Here is everything advertised for tonight’s show: 

Preview (via WWE) - The self-proclaimed “locker room leader” Sami Zayn is out to prove his value once again to The Bloodline by stepping in to deal with a disgruntled Shinsuke Nakamura. 

The King of Strong Style has had his sights set on The Head of the Table ever since Roman Reigns and his cousins The Usos ruthlessly attacked him after putting Nakamura’s guitar-riffing herald on the injured list.

When Nakamura attempted to call out the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, he was answered by Zayn who was out to prove he can be a vital asset to The Bloodline. “The Master Strategist” was able to outwit Nakamura after catching him by surprise with a Helluva Kick to earn a count out victory.

With Nakamura still chomping at the bit to get to Reigns, can he flip the script and clear this roadblock to The Bloodline?

Preview (via WWE) - Xavier Woods is ready to show Butch the true meaning of fight night after laying down a one-on-one challenge to the rabid bruiser.

The frenzied attack dog for Sheamus and Ridge Holland has repeatedly and randomly pummeled Woods and Kofi Kingston throughout their run-ins with the UK trio with Butch taking advantage of their superior numbers to defeat Kingston this past week.

Woods has been the only Superstar to tame the wild Butch, recording back-to-back victories to rain on the newcomer’s debut.

Can Woods prevail once again and earn some retribution for his New Day partner or will the numbers game come into play once again?

Preview (via WWE) - The Winner Take All Tag Team Title Unification Match between RK-Bro and The Usos is back on and set for Friday Night SmackDown on May 20.

Originally slated for WrestleMania Backlash, the budding rivalry between Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre converted the clash into a Six-Man Tag Team showdown. The Bloodline got the best of the newly-formed trio, but Riddle, Randy Orgon & McIntyre showed they could push the blue brand champions to the absolute limit.

So will The Bloodline be leaving SmackDown next week with all the gold or can RK-Bro make those dreams go up in smoke?
