News items ahead of tonight's WWE SmackDown.
According to Mike Johnson at PWInsider, Drew McIntyre, The Usos, and Tamina are backstage at SmackDown. Keep in mind; this does not mean they will appear on television.
McIntyre last appeared on the Aug. 28 episode of Raw, losing to Ricochet in the first-round of the King of the Ring tournament. He has been out of action after reportedly undergoing surgery for a minor injury. The Usos last wrestled on July 29, losing a triple threat Raw Tag Team Title bout. Jimmy Uso was arrested on July 25 and charged with DUI. Tamina reportedly suffered a concussion at a live event in July, but recently returned to the ring at a WWE live event on Sept. 20.
