WWE has added two matches to Friday's SmackDown.
First, the SmackDown Tag Team Titles will be on the line when Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura defend their titles against Lucha House Party (Gran Metalik & Lince Dorado). Metalik defeated Nakamura last Friday when Kalisto returned from his injury.
Life has been good to Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro as SmackDown Tag Team Champions, but Gran Metalik & Lince Dorado are intent on crashing that party.
Lucha House Party will aim to shut down the “Champion’s Lounge” when they challenge Nakamura & Cesaro for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles. The tandems have gone back in forth in singles action in the past two weeks as Cesaro first crushed Lince Dorado, and Gran Metalik then walked the ropes to a win against The King of Strong Style. The King of the Ropes was aided by the surprising return of Kalisto who neutralized The Swiss Cyborg outside the ring.
Will Lucha House Party finally get their hands on the titles? Or will Nakamura & Cesaro be toasting another victory?
Tune in to Friday Night SmackDown on FOX at 8/7 C to see the title showdown.
Also set for next week is Big E against Sheamus.
Big E has dreams of climbing to WWE’s mountaintop, and Sheamus loves nothing more than to crush a good dream.
The New Day powerhouse will face The Celtic Warrior in the WWE ThunderDome, as Big E looks to continue a strong start to his Singles run. Big E forced both John Morrison & The Miz to tap out in his last matches, as the ultimate teammate showed off his complete skillset. Following that win over Morrison, Sheamus came calling and delivered an earth-shattering Brogue Kick to Big E.
Can Big E keep his dream alive against Sheamus? Or will The Celtic Warrior have his opponent rethinking his decision to go it alone?
Tune in to Friday Night SmackDown on FOX at 8/7 C to see the massive clash between Big E and Sheamus.
Previously announced for WWE SmackDown is an Intercontinental Title bout featuring AJ Styles defending against Jeff Hardy.
Fightful will have live coverage of WWE SmackDown beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Friday.
