Big return announced for this week's Smackdown Live Submitted by Aaron Rift on 10/07/2018 at 01:16 PM
WWE announced the following:
With the WWE World Cup beginning to come into focus for WWE Crown Jewel, several big Qualifying Matches will begin to take place … some real big.
Yes, Big Show will return to SmackDown LIVE this week to take on Randy Orton on the blue brand.
Will The World’s Largest Athlete be able to shake off any ring rust and defeat the vicious Viper as he tries to advance in this world event at the Saudi Arabia pay-per-view? Or, will The Apex Predator strike first and take down Big Show and advance on in this international event?
Jeff Hardy is back and has his eyes set on the WWE World Cup at WWE Crown Jewel … but his Qualifying Match will be anything but a tune-up as he squares off against a none-too-pleased Samoa Joe.
The Charismatic Enigma will be looking to make a declarative statement to the WWE Universe as he competes in his first match since the scary incident that saw him land hard through a table and have to be stretchered out at WWE Hell in a Cell. The Samoan Submission Machine will also be aiming to reset and move forward after his (literally) brutal defeat to AJ Styles in the WWE Title Match at WWE Super Show-Down.
SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair’s title match at WWE Super Show-Down did not end without controversy on Saturday when Lynch intentionally got herself disqualified against The Queen in order to hold onto the gold.
Well, that will not be an option for her this Tuesday night when the two rematch in a contest where if The Irish Lass Kicker gets DQ’ed she will lose the title.
Will Lynch be able to keep it clean against The Queen now that she doesn’t have the outlet to escape with the title by resorting to questionable tactics? Or, after Becky got the best of her after the bell at WWE Super Show-Down, will Charlotte’s rage prove to be her achilles heel?
