Tonight’s episode of WWE SmackDown Live will emanate from the Bell Centre in Montreal Canada, just like WWE Raw last night, so another hot crowd can be expected for the go-home show for WWE Backlash.
So far only one match has been officially announced as Charlotte Flair teams with Becky Lynch and Asuka to take on the team of Carmella and the IIconics.
WWE is also promoting the fact that Shinsuke Nakamura wants a public apology from AJ Styles following the Greatest Royal Rumble, and United States Champion, Jeff Hardy will be appearing on Miz TV.
As always, ProWrestling.com will be providing complete, LIVE coverage of WWE Smackdown beginning tonight at 8pm EST so be sure to join us then!
WWE.com is hyping the following points ahead of tonight’s show:
- Jeff Hardy to appear on “Miz TV”
- Shinsuke Nakamura demands an apology
- Charlotte Flair and Carmella lead trios in six-woman tag team action
- Will Big Cass revel in ruining Daniel Bryan’s Greatest Royal Rumble moment?
The WWE Championship Match at the Greatest Royal Rumble event ended in shocking fashion when both competitors were counted out by the official while brawling around the ringside area. That didn’t stop The Phenomenal One from unleashing his rage on The Artist, pummeling him with a steel chair and a Phenomenal Forearm on the arena floor. Though they’re facing off again for the title this Sunday at WWE Backlash, Nakamura is demanding a public apology from the champion for his actions in Saudi Arabia. Will The Artist get his wish? Find out tonight on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!
