WWE has announced the following matches and segments for tonight’s WWE Smackdown television show.
-Ali vs. Buddy Murphy in a first round King of the Ring match.
-Chad Gable vs. Shelton Benjamin in a first round King of the Ring match.
-Daniel Bryan and Rowan demand an apology from Roman Reigns.
Powell’s POV: The official preview also questions if Randy Orton will have an answer for Kofi Kingston’s surprise attack, and how Charlotte Flair will respond to Bayley. The winner of the Ali vs. Murphy will face Elias in round two of the King of the Ring tournament, and the Gable vs. Benjamin winner will face Andrade in the second round. Smackdown will air live from Baton Rouge, Louisiana at Raising Cane’s River Center. Join Jake Barnett for the weekly live review of Smackdown tonight at 7CT/8ET. Dot Net Members will hear my same night audio review afterward, and my Smackdown Hit List will be available on Wednesday.
