Tonight on WWE SmackDown Live, we have a supposed “final confrontation” between AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan, a Trick or Street Fight featuring New Day and The Bar with Big Show, and Becky Lynch begins the stretch to her match with Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series!
It’s the question on everyone’s mind right now, probably (BSS, anyone?) – is Daniel Bryan actually going to have a match with AJ Styles for the WWE Championship at Crown Jewel this Friday?
The question arises of course in response to rumors that both Daniel Bryan and John Cena were planning on not attended Crown Jewel in response to the WWE’s decision to keep Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia amidst political unrest.
John Cena notably was taken out of his WWE “World” Cup match and replaced with Bobby Lashley, effectively confirming that Cena in fact pulled out of the event.
Tonight, Daniel Bryan allegedly will have one last confrontation with AJ Styles before Crown Jewel, and I guess then we’ll see how much weight the rumors of Bryan refusing to attend really were holding.
The New Day will face off with The Bar with Big Show (so I guess now they’re like The Big Bar. The Bar Show?) in a Trick or Street Fight. More than anything in the world right now, I am legitimately excited about what the New Day will be dressing up as for Halloween. You bet your Booty-O’s I will have a lot of things to say about their costumes on Twitter.
On a serious note, obviously The New Day will have their match to regain the SmackDown Tag Team Championships from The Bar at Crown Jewel. I’m not entirely sure how good of a decision it will prove to be to have the preceding match be a Street Fight, especially if you want to save a better part of the action for the pay-per-view.
That said, I’m sure there may be a little more spectacle tonight with The New Day and Halloween than action, so it should be fine.
That’s right, The Champ (and that’s The Champ) Becky Lynch will be going one-on-one with Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series following a series of challenging tweets Lynch dropped Rousey after Evolution on Sunday.
We’ll see what The Champ has to say about what’s in store for the “baddest woman on the planet” ahead of Survivor Series, and we’ll see what the fall-out of her show-stealing Last Woman Standing match with Charlotte Flair at Evolution will be.
