WWE SmackDown is set to take place on July 3, 2020, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT live on FOX. The following will preview and predict the major matches and segments that will occur on the B-show.

On this week’s episode of WWE SmackDown, there is nothing scheduled, as of this writing. As for WWE Extreme Rules 2020 in July, the following SmackDown matches have already been announced: (1) Braun Strowman vs. Bray Wyatt in a non-title Wyatt Swamp Fight, and (2) Bayley (c) vs. Nikki Cross for the prestigious SmackDown Women’s Championship.

The WWE Universe will very likely be wondering who is next for the Intercontinental Champion AJ Styles and SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day as well. The past three weeks of SmackDown indicated that Drew Gulak and Artist Collective’s Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura would be next in line for those championships.

In terms of non-title feuds, Matt Riddle has been in a rivalry with King Corbin, which Corbin perceives as prematurely booked despite their past encounters at Survivor Series and Royal Rumble. In the women’s division, Mandy Rose is still in a riveting rivalry with Sonya Deville that should be coming to an end this summer.

With that being said, it’s now time to preview and predict this week’s WWE SmackDown, which is three weeks away from WWE Extreme Rules 2020. To start things off, let’s predict who Shorty G will battle next after wrestling Mojo Rawley for three straight weeks.
