Tonight's edition of WWE SmackDown emanates from the WWE Performance Center and is reportedly being taped as this is being written, this afternoon. The show only has 1 segment announced for the show as for some-odd reason, the previously scheduled Bray Wyatt-Braun Strowman confrontation has been removed from all of WWE's social media accounts and from their official preview on their website. The scheduled Intercontinental Championship match between Champion, AJ Styles and challenger, Drew Gulak were set to square off, but that has also been removed from all of WWE social media accounts and official website preview.
With all that being said, let's see what tonight has in-store for us!
- Special Tribute To The Undertaker + The Boneyard Match From WrestleMania 36, In It's Entirety
Preview (via WWE) - With the WWE Universe still buzzing over the final chapter of WWE Network’s groundbreaking documentary Undertaker: The Last Ride, SmackDown will feature a special “Tribute To The Undertaker” this Friday night.
As part of the special recognition, the astonishing Boneyard Match between The Deadman and AJ Styles will air on television for the first time. As Superstars, legends, celebrities and fans have expressed their support for the sports-entertainment icon, the blue brand now gets to share the same message: Thank you, Taker.
