The following matches and events are advertised for tonight’s WWE Smackdown Live television show.
-American Alpha vs. The Usos in the semifinals of the tournament to crown the first WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champions.
-The Hype Bros vs. Heath Slater and Rhyno in the semifinals of the tournament to crown the first WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champions.
-AJ Styles confronts Dean Ambrose in the ring.
Powell’s POV: WWE is also playing up the idea of more mind games involving Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt heading into their match at Backlash. I must point out the absurdity of booking the first Alpha vs. Usos match without delivering any meaningful hype. Join me for live coverage of Smackdown as the show airs on USA Network tonight at 7:00 p.m. CT.
