Tonight, on the With Spandex WWE Smackdown Live open discussion thread for November 8, 2016:
It’s been a long and twisted blissful road, but the SmackDown Women’s Championship Match between Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss will take place in front of the WWE Universe in Glasgow, Scotland, on SmackDown LIVE. — via WWE.com
Our five-point preview:
1. Tuesday’s episode of Smackdown will air on tape delay, since it’s happening in Glasgow, and you can find the full spoilers for the show here. But you’re already in the open thread, so just stick around and have fun with your fellow With Spandexians.
2. After having their title match delayed, Alexa Bliss will finally have a chance to capture the Smackdown Women’s Championship when she takes on Becky Lynch, whom she nWo-style spray painted last week. Expect lots of Bliss face and people talking about how short she is.
3. All three hours of Raw was centered on whether the Survivor Series teams can get along, so expect some more of the same, but less so, on Smackdown. I miss when Survivor Series just to break down strictly along heel/face lines. Give me The Visionaries vs. The Jake The Snakes any day.
4. The Miz is (as of now) officially not booked for Survivor Series. Maybe he’ll get a special Survivor Series edition of MizTV, where he gets to interview Neville about how he’s moved from being forgotten by gravity to being forgotten by everyone and everything.
5. Randy Orton is maybe-kinda-not-really with the Wyatt Family, still. It’s a move so telegraphed even TJ Perkins knows what’s coming. But if Orton starts growing a beard, all bets are off. He’s already put on pants a bunch this year, so anything is possible.
Be sure to check back for the Best and Worst of Smackdown Live column tomorrow. Until then have a party in the comments, and enjoy the show!
