Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt to come face to face on SmackDown

Universal Champion Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt share a storied past and are on a brutal collision course at WWE Money In The Bank. What will happen when the two combatants come together just two nights before their title showdown?

Wyatt has been content with sending messages to his former family member from the comfort of his Firefly Fun House abode, but Strowman is tired of the puppet show. The Universal Champion invited the twisted Superstar to come find him and meet face to face this week on Friday Night SmackDown.

Jeff Hardy’s comeback continues on Friday Night SmackDown

“>

There’s plenty to still be written in Jeff Hardy’s WWE story, and the next chapter begins this week on Friday Night SmackDown.

The Charismatic Enigma made his return to action earlier this year by defeating King Corbin on the blue brand in his first match of 2020. In recent weeks, Michael Cole has led the promotion of Hardy’s WWE journey and set the stage for the former WWE Champion to reestablish himself on the blue brand. Only one problem: No one cleared that plan with Sheamus, as The Celtic Warrior has voiced his frustrations and anger with the ongoing Hardy tributes.

What will be in store when the iconic highflyer makes his return, and will Sheamus be far behind?

Tamina to team up with Lacey Evans against Bayley & Sasha Banks

For Tamina & Lacey Evans, the saying “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” has never been more meaningful in a matchup against Bayley & Sasha Banks.

Will Bayley & Banks continue to coexist as the blue brand’s role models, or can Tamina & Evans sew more dissent in their ranks?
