What to watch on Friday Night Smackdown
The main event of tonight’s show will feature Intercontinental Champion Gunther defending his belt against Rey Mysterio in what should be an interesting clash of styles. Leaving Monday Night Raw to avoid fighting his son Dominik, Mysterio arrived to Smackdown a few weeks ago and won a Fatal Four-Way match to become the new No. 1 contender for the IC title. We’ll see how the veteran fares against the “Ring General”.
Since losing the Smackdown Women’s Championship at Extreme Rules last month, Liv Morgan has shown a more extreme side to her character and has brutalized Sonya Deville on multiple occassions. Tonight, the two will engage in a no disqualification match.
Also on the show, L.A. Knight continues to establish himself as a singles competitor when going one-on-one with Ricochet. We’ll also see be sure to get plenty of pre-taped segments and video packages for the major matches heading into Crown Jewel.
