Orton and Mahal collide in non-title Grudge Match:
WWE Champion Jinder Mahal and Randy Orton will collide tonight on SmackDown LIVE in a non-title grudge match. The rivalry between the two Superstars had been largely silent since their last meeting at WWE Battleground, when The Modern-Day Maharaja escaped the Punjabi Prison to retain his title, thanks to an assist from The Great Khali, who held Orton inside the massive structure.
Many thought their rivalry would be put on the back burner with both men focusing on separate matches at SummerSlam — Orton with Rusev and Mahal defending his title against Shinsuke Nakamura. These fierce rivals will clash again on SmackDown LIVE, however. Will the score be settled, or will one of the most intense rivalries in WWE continue on?
Shane McMahon to explain SummerSlam rules of engagement to Styles and Owens:
Last week’s United States Championship match ended in controversy, when the official missed Kevin Owens clearly getting his shoulder off the mat before the three-count, due to being hit in the eye moments earlier.
A furious Owens confronted SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon and General Manager Daniel Bryan, shoving the official and demanding a rematch with a fair official. Bryan granted Owens’ wish, but appointed McMahon as the special guest referee for the SummerSlam showdown with AJ Styles, which seemed to incense Owens even more.
With this rivalry reaching its boiling point, McMahon is laying down the law regarding his role as official at SummerSlam. The Commissioner will clear up any misconceptions either Superstar may have this Tuesday when he dishes out the rules of engagement on SmackDown LIVE.
Naomi clashes with Ms. Money in the Bank:
SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi continued to assert her dominance over the division last week, forcing Carmella to submit in tag team action.
Though she’s currently preparing to defend her title against Natalya at SummerSlam, Naomi will have to deal with Ms. Money in the Bank this week on SmackDown LIVE, as Carmella demanded a one-on-one battle.
Will Naomi put in a repeat performance of last week, or can Carmella weaken the champion and put herself closer to a potential cash-in?
Will Lana prove herself against Charlotte Flair?
Despite her best intentions, Lana cost her and Tamina a tag team match with Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch. The Ravishing Russian vowed to make it up to Tamina, announcing her intention to challenge Charlotte Flair.
Lana’s wish has been granted, as she will take on The Queen on SmackDown. Will she be able to best the genetically superior Superstar, or will Charlotte make quick work of The Ravishing Russian?
Will Tyler Breeze solve the mystery in return to “Fashion Peaks”?
Tyler Breeze’s search for his missing partner, Fandango, led him down a disturbing path last Tuesday. Prince Pretty’s journey into “Fashion Peaks” went viral, as the search for Fandango got attention from outlets like Entertainment Weekly, TV Guide and even “Twin Peaks” star Kyle MacLachlan.
Tonight on SmackDown, Breeze is venturing back into the strange world of “Fashion Peaks.” Will he find his missing partner and close the case? Pour yourself a damn fine cup of coffee and tune in to SmackDown LIVE to find out!
