Smackdown Live has a huge main event qualifying match scheduled for May 29, but it's not the only storyline progression you can expect on the show.
Much like WWE Raw this week, Fightful.com has learned of several plans for the Smackdown Live show tonight. One of those will not be a championship match between Carmella and Asuka, despite WWE's social media team incorrectly tweeting ahead of the show that it would happen tonight.
The night's show, titled "Raise Up," will feature a promo from Samoa Joe, Daniel Bryan and Big Cass that will see Cass added to the main event. The promo will be followed by a backstage interview with the members of Absolution, and a match between Shinsuke Nakamura and Tye Dillinger.
AJ Styles is set for an interview backstage, and then Naomi and Lana will have their "dance off," that also involves Rusev Day and The Usos. New Day will take on The Bar in a six-man tag team match following this. Also listed is Renee Young interviewing "Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson with the Bludgeon Brothers" backstage, and an Asuka vs. Mandy Rose match.
Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch, as well as Naomi & Jimmy Uso vs. Lana & Aiden English will both be made for future shows, and the evening is headlined by Big Cass vs. Samoa Joe vs. Daniel Bryan.
It's worth noting that Andrade Cien Almas is also set for a backstage angle with Sin Cara and Zelina.
