WWE SmackDown Live comes to Indianapolis, Indiana tonight with only 19 days left to go until we arrive at WrestleMania 35. We’ve got big moments on the horizon, but perhaps none bigger than Kofi Kingston’s need to run the gauntlet to reach WrestleMania.
WWE SmackDown Live will emanate tonight from the Bankers Life Fieldhouse, and it looks to be one of the best editions of SmackDown in recent memory. Before we get to the six-man spectacle that most people are hyped for, there are three other big things to expect tonight.
WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions The Boss ‘n’ Hug Connection will finally come to SmackDown tonight to face The IIconics, who have called them out and pushed them to defend the titles against “all comers” as they’d promised. Sasha Banks and Bayley will likely also be reeling from the attack by Nia Jax and Tamina last night on WWE Raw, so how will The IIconics respond?
The Miz looks ready to deliver the most passionate fan favorite moment of his career as he responds to Shane McMahon’s vicious assault at WWE Fastlane. Last week, Shane McMahon went on a tirade about how others always want him to give them things and do stuff for them, including The Miz in that grouping. He then ordered The Miz to face him at WrestleMania, but what will The A-Lister have to say tonight?
We also have Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair, who were nowhere to be seen last night as Ronda Rousey defended her Raw Women’s Title against Dana Brooke. With tensions heating up every week as WrestleMania nears, we could see Lynch and Flair come to blows only 19 days before they challenge Rousey for the Raw Women’s Championship in the potential main event of WrestleMania 35.
Finally, the night will begin with an emotionally charged obstacle course placed in front of Kofi Kingston. Fans have rallied behind Kingston in recent weeks and pushed heavily for him to get a shot at Daniel Bryan’s WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35.
Tonight, Kofi Kingston can make that dream a reality, but he’s got a lot to do before “KofiMania” is more than a hashtag. WWE SmackDown Live will kick off with Kofi Kingston who must emerge victorious in a Gauntlet Match against Randy Orton, United States Champion Samoa Joe, Cesaro, Sheamus, and Rowan. If Kingston can do the seemingly impossible, he’ll punch his ticket to WrestleMania.
