There are less than two weeks to go before WrestleMania 34, and tonight the stars of the blue brand will get their chance to hype up the Show of Shows as SmackDown Live takes place from the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, PA.
WWE is teasing that Daniel Bryan may not make it to SmackDown Live tonight due to the vicious beating he received at the hands of Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn last week. But it’s expected that we’ll be finding out more about Bryan’s WrestleMania role, and hopefully Shane McMahon’s status.
It’s also been confirmed that Bobby Roode and Randy Orton will team up to face Jinder Mahal and Sunil Singh, Charlotte is set to face Natalya, Shinsuke Nakamura is set for a match with Shelton Benjamin, and The New Day will be facing The Bludgeon Brothers.
Superstars being advertised for SmackDown this week include WWE Champion AJ Styles, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Shinsuke Nakamura, Daniel Bryan, United States Champion Randy Orton, Bobby Roode, Jinder Mahal, Rusev, Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair, Natalya, Becky Lynch, Naomi, Carmella, Lana and more.
WWE is focusing on the following points for tonight’s show:
- Will Daniel Bryan make it to SmackDown LIVE?
- Roode & Orton join forces to take on Mahal and Singh
- The New Day return to battle The Bludgeon Brothers
- Shinsuke Nakamura clashes with Shelton Benjamin
