WWE is advertising the following matches and segments for tonight’s Smackdown television show.
-WWE Champion Kofi Kingston vs. Shinsuke Nakamura in a non-title match.
-Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair meet face to face for the first time since WrestleMania 35.
-Will Roman Reigns be fired for punching Vince McMahon?
Powell’s POV: Nope, no he won’t be fired. Anyway, it will be an interesting show if for no other reason than you never know who will show up due to these Superstar Shakeup changes the company made a week after the two-night event. Aleister Black, Anrade, and Zelina Vega are listed as Smackdown wrestlers, but there’s no telling whether the company will make additional moves. Smackdown will be held tonight in Lincoln, Nebraska at Pinnacle Arena. Jake Barnett has the night off, so join me for the weekly Smackdown live review as the show airs tonight on USA Network at 7CT/8ET. Dot Net Members will hear my audio review after the show tonight, and Jake will have the Smackdown Hit List available on Wednesday.
