The following matches and events are advertised on the WWE website for tonight’s WWE Smackdown Live television show.
-AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin.
-Rusev vs. Jinder Mahal.
-Smackdown Women’s Champion Charlotte vs. Natalya in a non-title match.
-Shane McMahon returns and states whether he will be ready to team with Daniel Bryan against Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn at WrestleMania.
Powell’s POV: WWE is going back to the Charlotte vs. Natalya match that was postponed last week. Charlotte is scheduled for double duty tonight, as she will also work the Mixed Match Challenge final. Join Jake Barnett for live coverage of Smackdown as the show airs at 7CT/8ET. I will be by after the show with an audio review and then on Wednesday with the WWE Smackdown Hit List.
