As the anticipation heightens for the upcoming "Money in the Bank" event in London, wrestling enthusiasts are turning their eyes to the Cajundome in Lafayette, Louisiana. This coming episode of "WWE SmackDown," just over a week before the esteemed event, is filled with promise and impending excitement.
Last week's stunning occurrences set the stage for an unparalleled drama. In a shocking turn of events, Jey Uso demonstrated a significant shift in loyalties. Uso renounced his allegiance to The Bloodline by directing a super-kick to the face of WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns, severing ties that had held firm for almost three years.
This split within The Bloodline is touted as a "civil war," expected to commence tonight officially. Subsequently, The Usos, Roman Reigns, and Solo Sikoa are poised for a tag match in London. But before that, audiences can anticipate hearing from the competitors in tonight's episode.
Unprecedented Unification in Women's Division
Tonight's episode also features a couple of pivotal matches in the women's division that could shape the future narrative. A first-time-ever unification match is set between WWE Women's Tag Team Champions Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler and NXT Women's Tag Team Champions Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn.
This clash of titans is destined to create ripples in the world of WWE. In addition, an intriguing contest will pit Shotzi against Bayley, with the stakes being more than just a win. If Shotzi emerges victorious, she earns a spot to replace Bayley in the women's Money in the Bank ladder match.
Furthermore, fans will witness another Money in the Bank preview match. The triple threat featuring Butch, Santos Escobar, and LA Knight will provide a glimpse of who might carry the momentum into London. Meanwhile, Cameron Grimes and Baron Corbin set a much-anticipated singles match.
Grimes, who defeated Corbin in just seven seconds in their previous encounter, will be eager to extend his winning streak just before Corbin's challenge for the NXT Championship against Carmelo Hayes.
