Tonight on the With Spandex WWE Smackdown Live open discussion thread:
After revealing that Rowan was allegedly behind the recent attacks on Roman Reigns, Buddy Murphy was on the receiving end of a brutal ambush by the massive Superstar during the SummerSlam Kickoff. The Best Kept Secret isn’t laying low after that, though, as he called out Roman Reigns on Twitter. The Big Dog has accepted his challenge for tonight in Toronto. What will happen when these two Superstars collide in a first-time-ever battle? Find out on SmackDown LIVE, tonight at 8/7 C on USA! (via WWE.com)
Our five-point preview:
1. It’s time for 205 Dead tonight, as Roman Reigns faces Buddy Murphy. Let’s hope Buddy uses his new signature move, the Forklift Driver Error.
2. The fallout from SummerSlam will continue as Randy Orton continues feuding with Kofi Kingston, and Shane McMahon presumably shrugs off his loss to Kevin Owens and comes out on top somehow.
3. Who will step up to challenge Bayley next? Bonus points if Sasha Banks shows up and beats her down with a steel chair.
4. That’s the extend of WWE.com’s preview for Smackdown. Maybe Charlotte will start a feud with Victoria?
5. … and more!
