Last week’s edition of Friday Night SmackDown saw the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Tournament kick off for the blue brand plus Gunther successfully defended the Intercontinental Championship in the main event. 

Tonight the road to Clash at the Castle heats up as Champion and Challenger meet face to face. 

Here is everything advertised for tonight’s show: 

Preview (via WWE) - Just weeks before their battle at WWE Clash at the Castle for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, The Head of the Table and The Scottish Warrior will go head-to-head on SmackDown.

The last time Roman Reigns tried to address his future opponent, Drew McIntyre was blindsided by a returning Karrion Kross. Kross, along with the returning Scarlett, laid an hourglass at the feet of Reigns, indicating the end is near.

With only weeks to go until their showdown at the Premium Live Event in Cardiff, Wales, what will Reigns and McIntyre say to each other? Plus, will Kross make his presence felt after shocking the WWE Universe? Find out tonight on SmackDown at 8/7 C on FOX.

Preview (via WWE) - After an attempt at blindsiding The Viking Raiders with a Kendo stick backfired on Kofi Kingston, The New Day member was brutalized by the dominant duo and carted off on a stretcher.

With both New Day members out of action, The Viking Raiders will rub salt in the wounds by holding a “Viking Funeral.”
