The variety-just one contender for Roman Reigns’ Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, Drew McIntyre made a shock look on this week’s episode of Monday Evening Uncooked to ensure his dealing with a back again harm.

But that won’t undoubtedly halt him from competing in the scheduled match at Clash at the Castle. This also keeps The Scottish Warrior and The Head of the Table’s head-to-head confrontation section intact on SmackDown.

The past time Roman Reigns resolved his potential opponent, Drew McIntyre, the latter was blindsided by an ambush by returning Karrion Kross. Kross, alongside with her greater-half Scarlett, also set an hourglass at the toes of Reigns, indicating he’s ready for a championship chance.


Ronda Rousey has lately been on a rampage soon after dropping the Smackdown Women’s Title to Liv Morgan and she will not likely quit until finally acquiring another title match prospect.

An unannounced Rousey invaded the Title Match Agreement Signing phase in between SmackDown Women’s Winner Liv Morgan and Shayna Baszler, final 7 days by walking by means of the group with a bag, comprehensive of dollars.

The Baddest Lady on the Earth unzipped the bag and dumped the cash on to the table. Apparently, she paid out the suspension volume for her reckless steps at Summerslam.

Rousey declared that “being the baddest is costly” prior to downplaying her buddy and the recent title match challenger, Baszler’s delicate attitude.

Rousey is even now marketed to seem at Clash at the Castle in September and that qualified prospects us to believe that WWE will obtain a way to insert her into the title match lineup. Probably, the former champion’s inclusion will make the now declared Morgan vs. Baszler bout a triple menace.


The Viking Raiders and The New Day have been engaged in a brutally physical rivalry more than this ongoing summer. Previous 7 days, Kofi Kingston’s endeavor to blindside The Vikings with a Kendo stick backfired as he did not have the quantities activity by his side.

The former WWE Winner was attacked by Erik-Ivar and obtained carted off on a stretcher from Smackdown. With that, both equally New Day customers – Kingston and Xavier Woods are now on the shelf and that will allow their attackers to offer you a hardly ever-right before-noticed Viking Funeral on Smackdown.


A tournament to crown new holders for the vacant WWE Women’s Tag Workforce Championships is underway and it will run by means of tonight’s SmackDown, building way for the wildcard workforce from NXT to make their presence felt on the key roster for the initially time.

NXT’s Nikkita Lyons and Zoey Stark will claim their lower in this fiercely aggressive tourney versus the crafty duo of Natalya and Sonya Deville. The winner of this match will be a part of Raquel Rodriguez and Aliyah for the second semifinal match, potentially set for up coming week’s Smackdown.
