Ohio, Sep 27: WWE Smackdown Live is scheduled tonight from the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. The show will stream live on air on the USA Network from 7.15 PM.
In India, you can catch up the show live on Ten 2 channel from 5.30 AM onwards. The Talking Smack show will follow once the main show is finished at 7.30 AM. The repeat telecast will be broadcasted on Ten 1 tomorrow at 5 PM and Thursday at 4 PM.
This week’s show is headlined by a rare WWE World championship match. AJ Styles will defend his title against Dean Ambrose.
We have already got an announced triple threat match for the title at the No Mercy PPV. But, since Ambrose is due with his one-on-one rematch clause and picked up a huge win over John Cena, last week pinning him clean, he got his shot early.
So, we still don’t know who will go to the second Smackdown-only PPV as the WWE World champion. But, the rumors suggest that AJ Styles will not lose his title that easily.
John Cena will go on to hiatus after No Mercy and Ambrose had a bad time with the title before losing it at the Backlash PPV. So, Styles will find a way to retain the title.
We have got two solid rivalries going down in the Smackdown Women’s division. The feud between Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss started to heat up starting from last week’s contract signing and will go down further. Bliss will continue with her antiques against Lynch until her title match.
On the other hand, Carmella has been dominant on Nikki Bella by targeting her for weeks now. So, expect Nikki to make a comeback with her own statements, this week. We may officially get a No Disqualification match between these two at the No Mercy PPV, as well.
In the tag division, the Usos have become obnoxious since changing their attitude. The American Alpha failed to stop them from becoming the number one contender.
This time, they will look to make a strong statement against the champions. Also as a must-mention, Smackdown should book the Orton-Wyatt rivalry more physically from now onwards. Miz and Ziggler will have something special in-store since this will be a homecoming for both of them.
