Tonight’s episode of WWE SmackDown looks to be newsworthy.
Fightful Select reports Ronda Rousey is slated to make her return from a storyline suspension on SmackDown as early plans call for her to be involved in the contract signing for the title match between Shayna Baszler and SmackDown Women’s Champion Liv Morgan at Clash at the Castle.
It will be interesting to see if Rousey is inserted into this bout and make a triple threat match as Rousey did tap out Morgan at SummerSlam. However, the referee counted the pinfall and awarded Morgan the win instead. Rousey turned heel by attacking the referee and Morgan after the bout.
Other notes for the show include Karrion Kross and Scarlett slated to appear "with the full presentation," including the hourglass entrance.
There's supposed to be a table spot at some point in SmackDown. Finally, Sheamus, Drew McIntyre, Street Profits, and Roman Reigns are all tentatively scheduled for the show.
The following matches have been confirmed for tonight’s SmackDown:
- WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther vs. Shinsuke Nakamura.
- WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Tournament: Raquel Rodriguez and Aliyah vs. Shotzi and Xia Li.
As previously reported, there are two former WWE stars who could be returning to the company as they’re slated to be backstage at this show.
