Two matches have been made official for tonight’s SmackDown.
Cesaro will face Xavier Woods and Jey Uso in a triple threat match, which comes in advance of Cesaro & Sheamus defending their SmackDown Tag Team titles against The New Day and The Usos in a triple threat match at WWE TLC on December 16. Jeff Hardy vs. Randy Orton has also been announced for tonight.
The Usos defeated Cesaro & Sheamus in a non-title match on last week’s SmackDown. The New Day defeated Cesaro, Sheamus & Big Show in a Thanksgiving Feast Fight on the November 20 episode, and last week’s SmackDown included video of an angle where Cesaro and Sheamus blamed Big Show for that loss, Big Show punched Cesaro, and Sheamus said they’d be better off without Big Show.
There was a segment on last week’s SmackDown where Jeff Hardy was celebrating his 20th anniversary with WWE before being interrupted by Samoa Joe. Orton continued his feud with Rey Mysterio by laying out Mysterio for the second straight week.
Tonight’s SmackDown is taking place at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. Daniel Bryan appearing on Miz TV has been announced for the show. There will also be a contract signing ahead of Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Asuka’s tables, ladders, and chairs match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at TLC.
