In the main event, it’s John Cena vs. Baron Corbin. Last week, Baron Corbin announced that he’ll be in the Royal Rumble match. John Cena will challenge AJ Styles for the WWE Championship at Royal Rumble. Tonight, the old guard in Cena will collide with lone wolf.
Also tonight, American Alpha vs. The Wyatt Family for the Smackdown Tag Team Championship. It was just two weeks ago that Luke Harper and Randy Orton lost the tag team titles to American Alpha following some miscommunication. Can the former champions regain the titles tonight, or will there be further issues between Randy Orton and the rest of the Wyatt Family members?
In women’s action tonight Natalya vs. Nikki Bella. This one has been heating up since Carmella ended her feud with Nikki by informing Nikki that it was Natalya who attacked her at Survivor Series. Last week, the Queen of Harts informed Nikki that her looks would fade and Cena would leave her and that she’d ultimately die alone. Who will prevail when these two hook up tonight?
Here’s some other questions WWE is asking heading into tonight’s show:
- Who is the mysterious La Luchadora?
- Beware of an angry Ziggler
Smackdown airs tonight at 7pm CT on USA Network.
