The red franchise of WWE rocked yesterday’s night with the arrival of Brock Lesnar into the scenes which has provided a great build up to the upcoming WWE Royal Rumble 2017. And tonight we have the WWE Smackdown which is bound to provide tremendous excitement to all the fans of wrestling across the world. And as we build up to tonight’s show of the WWE Smackdown, we bring forward the live preview and the match card alongside the telecast details that will enable you to keep an eye on all the developments that are going to take place.
WWE Smackdown Live Rumour and Match Card: 17th January 2016
The focus on tonight’s show of the WWE Smackdown will definitely be on the steel cage title match between Alexa Bliss and Becky Lynch. The steel cage match has been scheduled so that La Luchadora doesn’t make any interference in that encounter which sets up an interesting encounter between Bliss and Lynch. Also, chances are there, like the previous weeks since the arrival of the mysterious character La Luchadora, that we might get come across the masked character.
Last week in the men’s section John Cena stole the show an impressive win over Baron Corbin to set up a match with AJ Styles at the WWE Royal Rumble 2017. So we might expect something to happen on tonight’s show of the WWE Smackdown in relation to AJ Styles that will provide him with a perfect build up before the eventual encounter with John Cena. Also, Baron Corbin needs to be in the mix as well which makes it possible that we might come across him in the talk show held by Jerry Lawler. Chances are there AJ Styles might appear in that much popular chat show as well which will provide much-needed hype that we are talking about. WWE Smackdown Live has always relied a lot on Jerry Lawler’s talk show, and it seems that there isn’t going to be any exception this time as well.
Eyes of the fans of WWE Smackdown will also be on the development in the Tag Team Championship as well where the Wyatt family faced yet another defeat last week at the hands of American Alpha. And the match brought into the rift between Luke Harper and Randy Orton. Bray Wyatt has been finding it really hard to make the settlement between these two which has made it all the more obvious that the tea is going to get broken at some point. And in the live preview of the WWE Smackdown, we predict that this could happen tonight.
