WWE SmackDown PREVIEW: Roman Reigns returns, Money in the Bank megamatch set, RAW invasion

Fatal 4-Way

SmackDown’s contestants for the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match will face each other tonight in a Fatal 4-Way Match that will give the victor a huge boost ahead of this Sunday’s Pay-Per-View event at the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut.

Randy Orton, Ali, Andrade and Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor will battle tonight ahead of the annual megashow that will see them all colliding with Ricochet, Drew McIntyre, Sami Zayn and Baron Corbin.

The winner of the Ladder Match will be awarded a world title match at any time and place he wishes within the next 12 months.

The Kevin Owens Show

WWE Champion Kofi Kingston and Kevin Owens have been at each other’s throats for weeks ahead of their upcoming title match at Money in the Bank.

Owens has blindsided Kingston in various occasions and laid out a brutal assault on him as well as his New Day team-mate Xavier Woods.

KO has invited the WWE Champion to his talkshow The Kevin Owens Show and this promises to be an intense confrontation.

Tag team action

The newly-formed dynamic duo of Asuka and Kairi Sane will be in action in London when they take on Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville in a Tag Team Match.

The Empress of Tomorrow and Sane, who are managed by two-time women’s champion Paige, are taking the women’s tag team division by storm thanks to some dominating performances.

But tonight they will face their toughest test yet when they take on Rose and Deville, who used to be mentored by Paige as part of Absolution last year.

Wild Card Rule

The Wild Card Rule will continue tonight and up to four RAW superstars will be invading SmackDown.

Reports suggested that WWE will showcase pretty much the same rosters they had before the WWE Superstar Shake-up during the European tour.

That means that the WWE Universe could see the likes of AJ Styles and US Champion Samoa Joe making a surprise appearance.

Roman Reigns return?

Roman Reigns made another appearance on RAW last night as part of the Wild Card Rule.

Reigns teamed up with The Miz and defeated Elias as well as Bobby Lashley via disqualification in a Tag Team Match.

The Big Dog is scheduled to be part of SmackDown tonight but will last night’s appearance lead to a change of plans?
