That does not necessarily mean that they will appear on the show and what is more likely is that they are there for a dark match before the show. WWE has been putting on dark matches with NXT talent in recent weeks so that Vince McMahon can evaluate them for a potential move to the main roster.
In other SmackDown news, WrestleVotes is reporting that the rundown sheet for tonight currently lists the Fatal 4-Way as the main event. That match will feature Seth Rollins vs. Kevin Owens vs. Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Big E. Of course, things can still change before showtime.
