It sure looks like WWE is putting more emphasis on promoting Smackdown Live these days and it probably has to do with their impending move to the FOX Network in 2019.
Smackdown Live General Manager Paige has announced that Tye Dillinger will be taking on Shinsuke Nakamura on this week’s show.
Here is what has been announced for the show so far:
– Daniel Bryan vs. Samoa Joe. The winner will get the final spot in the Men’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match. WWE is hyping this as the first time they’ve ever wrestled each other in WWE.
– The New Day will take on The Miz and The Bar in a Six-Man Tag Team Match
– Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Tye Dillinger
– They will also follow up on the Carmella/Asuka feud and we’ll likely get the next chapter in the Shinsuke Nakamura/AJ Styles feud.
This week’s Smackdown Live will emanate from the PNC Arena in Raleigh, NC.
