Tonight’s WWE SmackDown Live will see the fallout from Stomping Grounds and last night’s WWE Raw take place, with the build to Extreme Rules kicking off.
After Kingston once again defeated Dolph Ziggler, the WWE Champion needs a brand new challenger and after WWE Raw it appears that Samoa Joe is going to be that man. SmackDown Live will show how Kofi Kingston will respond to the attack by the former United States Champion.
Another champion who needs a new challenger is SmackDown Live Women’s Champion, Bayley, who called out the roster to step up and challenge her after WWE Stomping Grounds, but who will be the person to challenge?
So far no matches have been announced ahead of time, but the show will also likely feature a response from Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre to the surprise return of The Undertaker last night as well.
