Whether it was The Miz’s intention — and it probably was — his offer to help Naomi’s Hollywood career has caught the ire of Jimmy Uso. As a result, tensions are even higher between The Usos and the WWE Tag Team Champions ahead of their title match this Sunday at WWE TLC.
Tonight on SmackDown, Jimmy & Jey Uso must battle the impressive tag team of Cesaro & Tyson Kidd as they try to keep their focus inside the ring. Will the A-lister continue to offer a helping hand to Naomi despite the objections of her husband? See what drama unfolds tonight on SmackDown.
Swagger’s Patriotic Pledge
Monday night on Raw, Jack Swagger vowed to “snap” Rusev’s ankle before locking The Super Athlete into The Patriot Lock and nearly following through on his promise. Before The Real American steps inside the squared circle with the United States Champion Sunday at WWE TLC, he must first take on Titus O’Neil, a Superstar of equal size and strength to that of his pay-per-view opponent.
Can the former World Heavyweight Champion make The Real Deal tap to his devastating Patriot Lock submission? Will Rusev show up on SmackDown after nearly having his ankle snapped Monday night? Find out tonight at 8/7 CT on Syfy.

This Sunday at WWE TLC, the Fearless Nikki faces a tough task when she defends her precious title against a determined AJ. But before stepping in the ring with The Black Widow, Nikki must first face another determined Diva in Alicia Fox.
