Tonight, WWE Smackdown Live rolls into the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas where the Tag Team Championship tournament continues.
When Smackdown went off the air last week, those of us who bothered to switch over to WWE Network to watch Talking Smack got to witness a great segment between Daniel Bryan and The Miz. Daniel called Miz a “coward” in the ring, and The Miz went off on how Daniel was the coward who can’t wrestle anymore because of his style and that he should go to the bingo halls. It was the best promo of Miz’s career, and instantly began generating chatter online.
Tonight, Daniel Bryan will confront The Miz over what went down last week.
The Smackdown Tag Team Championship tournament continues tonight. Last week, we saw American Alpha and The Uso’s advance. Tonight, former WWE Tag Team Champions from the late 1990’s, Mosh and Thrasher, The Headbangers, return to Smackdown. One would have to assume the duo will be the eighth team in the tournament and will be facing the team of Heath Slater and Rhyno.
Last week, Carmella viciously assaulted Nikki Bella prior to their match, and then she attacked her again during Talking Smack. Will Carmella look to do more damage to Nikki, or might the Bella get some ounce of revenge tonight as the two women prepare for the big Six Pack Match at Backlash for the Women’s Championship.
Also last week, AJ Styles defeated Dolph Ziggler. With his win, AJ insured that his match at Backlash against Dean Ambrose would be a singles match. After losing to Dean Ambrose at Summer Slam and AJ last week, what’s next for Dolph Ziggler now that he’s seemingly no longer in the title hunt.
Smackdown Lives airs tonight at 7pm CT on USA Network.
