1 of 5


WWE is set to present a rather patriotic edition of SmackDown Live. Here is everything you should know heading into this historic episode.

For the first time since WrestleMania 33, John Cena is making an appearance on WWE programming. What can we expect to see from the 16-time world champion when he returns to SmackDown Live?

In an effort to continue the ongoing rivalry between the New Day and The Usos, WWE has decided to advertise a rap battle during tonight’s show. Hosted by the popular hip-hop star Wale, the segment has the potential to be highly entertaining.

Moments before his match with Baron Corbin, Sami Zayn interrupted a promo featuring Mike and Maria Kanellis. Was this a throwaway encounter, or are these three destined to conflict over the coming weeks?

With Battleground rapidly approaching, the time has come to find out who will face Kevin Owens for the United States Championship. A battle royal is set to be held on SmackDown Live, with the winner earning a title opportunity against the Prizefighter.

Speaking of Battleground, last week Jinder Mahal announced the match type for his clash with Randy Orton. Choosing the Punjabi Prison, his decision will either aid or doom his quest to remain the WWE Champion.

After being stripped of the Money in the Bank briefcase, many fans believed that Carmella wouldn’t come near the briefcase again. Surprisingly, she defied expectations and won the briefcase last week, outlasting five of the best women on the Blue Brand.

Despite coming up short in her last two attempts, Lana has received one final shot at the Women’s Championship. Can the Ravishing Russian learn from her mistakes and make history here tonight?
