Texas, Aug 30: Tuesday Night’s hottest show will take place live from Dallas, Texas, the home of this year’s Wrestlemania from 8/7c on the USA Network.
In India, Smackdown Live pre-show will commence from tomorrow 5 AM live on the Ten 2 and Ten 2 HD Network following the main show 30 minutes later to that.
After the show gets over, Talking Smack will also come live from 7.30 AM onwards. The repeat telecast will be aired on Ten 1 at 4 PM and 6.30 PM.
For last few weeks, Smackdown is giving a tough competition to the flagship show of the company, WWE Monday Night Raw in terms of TV ratings by presenting us a compact show.
After the biggest PPV of the summer is over, it will be Smackdown Live who will host the first-ever brand specific pay-per-view i.e. Backlash on September 11. So, we are less than two weeks away from the event which is returning to the company after eight long years.
The Smackdown Live runners already started to hype up the PPV from last week as they came up with not one but two brand new titles.
Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan unveiled the new tag team titles and the Women’s championship for the show, last week.
With that being said, we already know the six competitors for the six pack challenge at Backlash for the Women’s championship.
Expect Nikki Bella to get redemption against Carmella from her last week’s assault and also pick up huge momentum heading towards the match. Nikki is supposed to be the one to hold the first-ever Women’s championship created for the blue brand.
In the case of the tag team title, the tournament to choose the two opponents for the championship match will continue. The American Alpha and The Usos have already advanced in the tournament. So expect two more teams to join them on tonight’s show.
As for the WWE World Championship, AJ Styles is all fired up with his classic match against John Cena at Summerslam and with all the momentum by his side he is fired up to become the new number one contender for Dean Ambrose’s title. Expect him to continue with his dirty games with Ambrose since he is likely to become the next World champion at the Backlash PPV.
Also, in addition, we are probably going to get a must-see segment between the Miz and Daniel Bryan after the epic confrontation they had on Talking Smack. The promo cut by Miz went viral and we can’t wait to see Daniel to give it back to the so-called Hollywood star’s face.
