5.) The New Day (c) vs. Artist Collective [SmackDown Tag Team Championships]

Last week on Friday Night SmackDown, Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Kofi Kingston in a spectacular grudge match. On this week’s SmackDown, The New Day is scheduled to defend their SmackDown Tag Team Championships against Cesaro and Nakamura, who earned this championship match after defeating The New Day in a non-title tag match on the go-home show to WWE Backlash 2020 three weeks ago.

After that match between Nakamura and Kingston last week, Cesaro and Nakamura teased a future tag team tables match against The New Day by attempting to powerbomb Kingston through the table before Big E could make the save. Since this is a foreshadowing of what’s to come at WWE Extreme Rules 2020, it is more likely that there will be an inconclusive finish to this championship match to set up a rematch at the PPV.

Cesaro and Nakamura will get frustrated with the resilience of The New Day throughout the match and powerbomb them through tables to force a disqualification finish. The New Day will retain the SmackDown Tag Team Championships due to champions’ advantage but they will be enraged at this attack and request a tag team tables championship rematch against Cesaro and Nakamura at WWE Extreme Rules 2020. The Dudley Boys would be proud.

Prediction: The New Day (DQ)
