WWE Friday Night Smackdown returns to your screens with a new live episode from the Moody Center in Austin, TX. We’re only eight days away from the Money in the Bank pay-per-view in Las Vegas, but last week we had our main SummerSlam match at the end of July. We’ll have plenty of builds for both PPVs on tonight’s episode of Smackdown.

What to watch on Friday Night Smackdown
WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns successfully defended his belts against Riddle in the main event of the show last week. Just as he and the Bloodline were about to leave, they were greeted by a returning Brock Lesnar, who left the band devastated at the end of the show. It was made official shortly after Reigns and Lesnar will face off for the title in a Last Man Standing match in the main event of SummerSlam in just over a month. Tonight, all parties will appear on the show and begin the march to Nashville.
As for Money in the Bank, we’ll have two more qualifiers for the leaderboard matches tonight. On the men’s side, Sami Zayn will face Shinsuke Nakamura and on the women’s side, Aliya will face Shotzi. Both matches involve competitors arguing with each other, which should make for some great televised matches.
We’ll also get a rematch from two weeks ago as new Intercontinental Champion Gunther defends against former champion Ricochet.
