Roman Reigns and King Corbin were scheduled to face each other a week ago in the blue band show but the match was cancelled as both the wrestlers were not able to make it to the venue on time. The reason for their delay was a mechanical issue their plane faced when the crew was in Saudi Arabia. Both the superstars will finally face each other and conclude their ongoing rivalry. Last week, NXT took over SmackDown and many blue brand superstars were punished by yellow-and-black superstars. But after OC’s assault on NXT, there are very slim chances of NXT coming back.
After leading Team Hogan to victory, Roman Reigns is all set to face King Corbin on SmackDown. Corbin has been on Reigns' radar since the day he stopped Reigns from winning the Intercontinental Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura. Corbin made the situation even bigger when he attacked the Big Dog after WWE’s Backstage Show. Both the wrestlers recently met each other in the 10-men Tag Team match on Crown Jewel, but they were given less chance to come face-to-face. In the upcoming blue band show, the two will face each other for the first time in a singles match.
After defeating Braun Strowman at the WWE Crown Jewel, boxer Tyson Fury is scheduled to make his return to the blue brand show. The announcement was made by the host and commentator Renee Young on The Backstage show which aired recently. According to many, the upcoming SmackDown show may see a brawl between Fury and Braun Strowman.
Some also think that this may be Fury’s last appearance on the show as the boxer has to start training for his upcoming match against Deontay Wilder. However, the match between Fury and Wilder is scheduled to take place in February 2020. So, if the WWE wants, they can have a rematch between the Boxing lineal heavyweight champion and Strowman in the upcoming Survivor Series.
After getting defeated to WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley, Nikki Cross is set to face 'The Boss' Sasha Banks. Sasha Banks will also make her in-ring return, months after her defeat in a Hell in a Cell Showdown against Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch. Since that defeat, 'The Boss' has rallied behind Bayley and she even helped her to defeat Cross and retain her championship.
