Last week’s edition of Friday Night SmackDown was the go home show for the Crown Jewel premium live event. Gunther successfully defended the Intercontinental Championship against Rey Mysterio, the announcement of the SmackDown World Cup plus Liv Morgan defeated Sonya Deville in a chaotic No DQ match.
Tonight the SmackDown World Cup commences, a new challenger is determined for Ronda Rousey and so much more.
Here is everything advertised for tonight’s show:
Preview (via WWE) - History is on the line this Friday as The Usos defend their Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles against The New Day. If The Usos are victorious, they will be the longest-reigning WWE Tag Team Champions ever, meaning that they would surpass The New Day’s previous record.
The New Day are not happy with this and seek to protect their record against The Usos.
Coming off their big win over The Brawling Brutes at WWE Crown Jewel, The Usos seem to have the momentum heading into this fierce contest. The two teams are no strangers to each other, having fought on multiple occasions, including a Hell in a Cell Match.
Will The New Day keep their record intact by dethroning The Usos, or will The Usos remain “the ones”? Find out tonight at 8/7C on FOX!
