Will Kofi and The Miz lay the SmackDown for title gold tonight?

After losing his United States Championship to The Shield’s Dean Ambrose at Extreme Rules, Kofi Kingston gets a rematch with the eccentric “Hound of Justice” tonight on SmackDown. The Miz will also challenge Wade Barrett for the Intercontinental Title on the same night!

If The Shield had any doubters remaining, their monumental U.S. and WWE Tag Team Title victories at Sunday’s pay-per-view definitively demonstrated that Ambrose, Reigns and Rollins will be a dominant force in WWE for a long time to come. A successful title defense tonight for Ambrose would serve to further establish the black-clad Superstar as a brilliant singles competitor. Kofi, however, remains undaunted in the face of the dangerous faction. So, will Ambrose’s burgeoning U.S. Title reign come to an abrupt end tonight?

The Miz may be outspoken, but he has shown time and time again that he has what it takes to back it up. Translation: The Barrett Barrage could very well lose the title by tapping to the Figure-Four Leg Lock for the second time in a week.
