Friday Night Smackdown is finally here. Cue the AC/DC! 🤘
Friday Night SmackDown debuts on FOX in a BIG way as Kofi Kingston defends his WWE Title against Brock Lesnar. Kevin Owens faces Shane McMahon in a high-stakes Ladder Match, Roman Reigns squares off with Erick Rowan and Becky Lynch teams with Charlotte Flair against Sasha Banks and Bayley in a battle of the Four Horsewomen.

Our five-point preview:
1. It’s time for Smackdown on Fox! Fingers crossed that the President of the United States shows up and uses his guest star status to request help from the Ukraine government to look into who REALLY attacked Roman Reigns.
2. Finally, The Rock has returned to WWE television. If he calls somebody an, “hasta la vista punk ass bitch,” everybody gets free tacos!
3. Also, Sting will make an appearance. Place your bets on who betrays him this time!
4. Lots of big matches tonight, including a ladder match that will (God willing) end the Kevin Owens and Shane McMahon story forever, a Four Horsewomen of NXT tag team match, and Roman Reigns getting a leg up on Erick Rowan before Daniel Bryan swerves him at Hell in a Cell.
5. In the night’s main event, Kofi Kingston loses the WWE Championship to Brock Lesnar. Maybe Rey Mysterio shows up and helps Kofi retain? Maybe Dominick slides into the ring and hits Brock with a WALTER-style lariat?
