The Smackdown Women’s Championship match between Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair will kick off the show tonight. Lynch can lose the title if she is disqualified. The reason why it’s kicking off the show is that Flair will wrestle again later in the night on Mixed Match Challenge when she teams with AJ Styles against Carmella and R-Truth so they want to give her some time in between matches to rest.
Also scheduled for tonight’s show:
– The Big Show vs. Randy Orton in a qualifying match for the WWE World Cup
– Jeff Hardy vs. Samoa Joe in a qualifying match for the WWE World Cup
– AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan will appear on Miz TV.
Smackdown Live will emanate from the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, IN.
