WWE Smackdown Preview 10/16

Yowee Wowie IWC! DNezz here and we are getting ready to the season premiere of WWE Smackdown on Fox! After last week’s and Monday’s draft, the landscape of both the Red and Blue brands has shifted. Key pieces of both shows will now relocate and hope to find themselves in their respective new locker rooms; including the likes of Seth Rollins and The Fiend Bray Wyatt. Let’s also take a moment to pay our respects to those superstars who have been separated from friends and tag partners; people such as Otis, Tucker, Mandy Rose, Kalisto, Gran Metalik, Lince Dorado and of course, the real tear-jerker of the event, the separation of perhaps the most popular group in WWE History, The New Day.

So what does tonight have in store for us? Plenty! But before we dive in to our preview, remember that Bodyslam.net has you covered for all of your live coverage needs.

Let’s break it down!

The Monster Meets The Big Dog

Ex-squeeze me? Baking powder? Are you telling me that tonight there will be a Universal Title match between Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns? Sign me up! Roman Reigns will be looking to add to his championship resume as he tackles the gargantuan problem that is The Monster Among Men. With Roman Reigns set to meet Jey Uso in an “I Quit” Match on the horizon, all of this with The Cell surrounding them, can Strowman capitalize on this opportunity and once again capture WWE Gold or will The Tribal Chief slay the monster and bolster his title reign with an impressive offering to the WWE Gods prior to the 25th?

The New Day Set for 6-man action and their Farewell Address to the WWE Universe

Five years…Nearly five years of positivity, pancakes, trombone blowing, WHO, Booty-O’s, and everything in between; tonight will be the final match involving The New Day in its entirety, as they are set to go their separate ways with Kofi and Woods heading to Raw and leading the Tag Team Division while Big E will remain on Smackdown and look to further prove himself among the singles ranks. Now nothing is forever in WWE but this particular moment will hit fans differently and to be honest, this moment will be slighted by the lack of live crowds in The Thunderdome. I’m not crying… You’re crying….SHUT UP!!!!

The Street Profits v. Ziggler & Roode

With the Street Profits being drafted to Smackdown, it appears that the team of Ziggler & Roode will make another attempt at Tag Team Gold. After being unsuccessful on Monday against The New Day, Ziggler and Roode will now focus one last attempt toward the newly crowned, Smackdown
Tag Team Champions. How will the Street Profits respond in their new home and can they stave off the desperate attempts at holding gold by The Glorious One and The Hollywood Bad Boy?

YES! Daniel Bryan Set to Return Tonight

It has been confirmed by WWE that the man behind the Yes Movement will be making his Thunderdome Debut tonight after disappearing from WWE TV following his falling short in the Intercontinental Title Tournament held on Smackdown months ago. Has Bryan returned to confront The Great Liberator and challenge for his coveted Intercontinental Title?

Jeff Hardy Takes On Lars Sullivan

Despite recent exclusive reports from Bodyslam.net pertaining to the behavior of Sullivan; it appears that The Freak will be in action tonight as he squares off against another recent draft pick of Raw, The Charismatic Enigma, Jeff Hardy. It is uncertain as to why Sullivan has this fixation with Hardy or why WWE insists to move forward with such an unsavory individual, but only time will tell. For now, we’ll just hope that Hardy can survive the onslaught that will undoubtedly be brought on by The Freak.
