Fightful Select has revealed several of the creative plans for tonight’s show, which is set to emanate from Salt Lake City in Utah.
WWE’s plans for SmackDown tonight
Sean Ross Sapp is reporting that tonight’s SmackDown show is going to have a lot of “action” with regards to the spots that have been planned.
The report notes that there are plans to use a “fire paper”, a table spot, as well as set up for a potential strap match in the future.
Roman Reigns is also set to appear on tonight’s show, his first appearance on WWE TV since Clash at the Castle on September 3, where he beat Drew McIntyre.
As for what Roman is going to do on the show, he’s going to be part of a segment where Sami Zayn is officially inducted into The Bloodline, where he’ll be given a shirt like the old nWo segments.
In super important Bloodline news, as of Thursday night, Sami Zayn was to be officially inducted into the group as an “Honorary Uce,” with him being presented a shirt nWo style.
The show could also see the return of Bray Wyatt, as the ‘White Rabbit’ character looks likely to be revealed during tonight’s episode, potentially even in the main event.
Fans will be hoping for more of the same come SmackDown tonight, with the show the latest chapter in the build for Extreme Rules on October 8.
WWE’s latest plans for Roman Reigns
Roman is set to miss Extreme Rules next month, but November is likely to be a busy few weeks for ‘The Tribal Chief’.
Reigns will be in action at Crown Jewel on November 5, defending his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against YouTube megastar Logan Paul.
While he’s not been confirmed for the show at the time of writing, Reigns is also rumoured to be in action at Survivor Series, with The Bloodline likely to be one of the teams in the men’s WarGames match.
