Tonight, WWE Smackdown rolls into the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, FL just one week removed from the big Wild Card Finals episode. Tonight’s episode is a big one as well as John Cena and WWE Champion AJ Styles meet in the center of the ring to sign the contract for their championship showdown just weeks away at Royal Rumble.
What will happen when “the face that runs the place” stands across from his history seeking challenger tonight on Smackdown?
Tonight’s Smackdown will also see a championship match. It’s going to be Dean Ambrose vs. The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship. The Miz is looking to successfully defend his title, and his wife Maryse will be in his corner. What role will Maryse play in tonight’s title match, or will she be rendered a non-factor by Dean Ambrose’s girlfriend, Renee Young?
In addition to the matches and contract signing announced for tonight’s show, here’s what else WWE is asking in their official preview:
- Is American Alpha prepared for The Wyatt Family’s wrath?
- Who is the mysterious La Luchadora?
Smackdown airs tonight at 7pm CT on USA Network.
