SmackDown preview: July 10, 2020



A new taping of WWE Friday Night SmackDown airs tonight on FOX starting at 8pm ET.

WWE has released a preview of tonight’s episode.

The New Day face a title challenge from Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro, Bayley & Sasha Banks set for non-title clash with Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross, and a special presentation of Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt’s WWE Money in the Bank showdown.

The New Day await title challenge from Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro

The Power of Positivity will come head-on with cynical skill when The New Day defend their SmackDown Tag Team Titles against Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro.

The King of Strong Style scored a statement victory over Kofi Kingston last week after Big E and Cesaro were ejected from ringside. The two bitter Superstars have used every possible opportunity to target the eight-time champions with blindside attacks, as the duo has searched for the respect they believe they deserve.

Will the decorated tag team titleholders fight off the challenge and retain their gold? Can Nakamura & Cesaro earn the esteem they crave by taking the titles?

Bayley & Sasha Banks ratchet up rivalry with Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross

The Golden Role Models have established their dominance, but that doesn’t mean their rivals are ready to accept it. As tensions remain at an all-time high, Bayley & Sasha Banks will face Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross in a non-title clash.

Cross has kept the SmackDown Women’s Champion on her heels ahead of their title showdown at The Horror Show at Extreme Rules. The unpredictable Superstar jumped in from all angles to distract Bayley in her Champion vs. Champion Match against Asuka. The challengers also derailed The Golden Role Models’ tribute to themselves last week on SmackDown, but the ensuing match between Five Feet of Fury and Bayley ended in a disqualification after Cross’ emotions boiled over.

Will the erratic Cross keep her emotions in check to send a message ahead of her title showdown? Or will Bayley & Banks back up their boasts as the gold standard?

Jeff Hardy joins “Miz TV” after crashing Sheamus’ toast

Jeff Hardy fought back against his demons last week, and now he’ll join “Miz TV” to discuss the latest escalation in his rivalry with Sheamus.

The Celtic Warrior delivered a full bar and his own server to the ring for The Charismatic Enigma, but Hardy refused to succumb to the temptations from his antagonist. Instead the iconic Superstar took out the bartender and stared down Sheamus following an emphatic Swanton Bomb.

Will The Miz & John Morrison poke and prod the incensed Hardy? Also, what message will Hardy have for Sheamus after the diabolical toast?

Wyatt looked to reawaken Strowman’s past after The Monster Among Men reached the championship summit at WrestleMania 36. Relive the epic clash of mind games between the familiar foes with a special presentation of the match.
