Smackdown Live will be in Detroit tonight and it looks like we might see the return (again) of James Ellsworth.
PWInsider is reporting that Ellsworth is backstage but it’s not confirmed that he will be appearing on the show. Drake Maverick is now the manager for the Authors Of Pain so it would make sense to replace him in that role. Perhaps, Ellsworth is being brought back as the new 205 Live GM? I guess we’ll find out tonight.
In other Smackdown Live news, they are advertising the following for tonight’s show:
– The Usos vs. SAnitY vs. Rusev Day in the next match to determine the number 1 contenders for the Smackdown Tag Team Titles
– The next chapter in the Samoa Joe/AJ Styles feud. WWE is teasing that Joe might actually go to Styles’ home.
They haven’t announced anything else for the show but they’ll probably follow up on all the key storylines leading up to Hell in a Cell.
Tonight’s show will emanate from the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit.
