WWE Smackdown Live King of the Ring Open Discussion Thread (8/20/19)

WWE Smackdown Live

Tonight on the With Spandex WWE Smackdown Live open discussion thread:

Last Tuesday, Smackdown Live came to a shocking conclusion when Daniel Bryan promised to reveal tonight the culprit behind the recent attacks on Roman Reigns. The Big Dog is ready to find out just what The Planet’s Champion has discovered, but Bryan also has to deal with Buddy Murphy. One week removed from being pummeled into admitting that he lied when accusing Rowan of orchestrating the attacks on Reigns, WWE’s Best Kept Secret issued a challenge to Bryan. Can Murphy capitalize on this huge opportunity? Find out on Smackdown Live, tonight at 8/7 C on USA! Our five-point preview:

1. Daniel Bryan vs. Buddy Murphy.

2. You guys, Daniel Bryan vs. Buddy Murphy.

3. Bryan is supposed to “reveal the identity” of who has been attacking Roman Reigns, so it’s only one of three possible answers: himself (in Vince McMahon reveal fashion), Rowan (in underwhelming fashion), or Buddy Murphy, who has been in on it the whole time.

4. So what, Bryan vs. Murphy ends almost immediately when Rowan interferes, they attack him 2-on-1, and Roman shows up to make a save? And then Murphy either turns on him there to attack him 3-on-1, or they set up a tag match for later and Murphy either abandons or attacks him then? And we never get Daniel Bryan vs. Buddy Murphy?
