SmackDown LIVE announces huge matches for next Tuesday night
Next week, SmackDown LIVE will feature an extremely unusual WWE World Championship Match.
As first announced on Talking Smack by General Manager Daniel Bryan, AJ Styles must defend his illustrious title against … James Ellsworth? Yes, you heard right. With a little help from special guest referee Dean Ambrose and … like … two Dirty Deeds, the virtually unknown competitor suddenly finds himself the No. 1 contender to “The Champ that Runs the Camp.”
Styles has promised to take matters in his own hands and, if Ellsworth were smart, he might start running to parts unknown as fast as humanly possible. Then again, perhaps The Lunatic Fringe is unhinged enough to help make Ellsworth the next WWE World Champion.
In addition, the No. 1 contender to the SmackDown Women’s Champion, Alexa Bliss, will go one-on-one with Naomi. The glowing competitor already beat Alexa at No Mercy. If she can do it again, will Miss Bliss find her No. 1 contender position to Becky Lynch’s title in jeopardy?
Plus, Baron Corbin will take on Jack Swagger in a No Mercy rematch!
Find out what goes down Tuesday night at 8/7 C on the USA Network.
