Tonight, WWE will be airing this week’s edition of WWE Smackdown Live from The Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield, as the road to WWE WrestleMania continues to intensify.
This week’s episode of WWE SmackDown Live will see the blue brand build towards its next PPV, WWE Fastlane with Shane McMahon announcing that the winner of Dolph Ziggler and Baron Corbin’s match will enter the WWE Championship match at the show.
It would mean that either Ziggler or Corbin will join Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens as well as current champion, AJ Styles.
WWE United States Champion, Bobby Roode has also announced there will be an open challenge on the show. His opponent is obviously unknown, but given how last week’s episode went down, Randy Orton could be a likely challenger.

- Dolph Ziggler to face Baron Corbin in a battle with WWE Fastlane implications.

- Bobby Roode issues United States Championship open challenge.
