Tonight SmackDown will celebrate its 900th installment, and the blue brand is going all out for the big milestone. The Rated-R Superstar will return for a new edition of the Cutting Edge, where he’ll interview the members of Team SmackDown ahead of their showdown this Sunday at Survivor Series.
Even bigger, we’ve got the return of the Undertaker. We don’t have a clue what to expect from the Deadman’s comeback, however. Will he make an announcement for Survivor Series? Will he tease a match for WrestleMania? Or is this just a one-off appearance for the special event?
But it’s not just old stars making up the big show tonight. Dolph Ziggler will defend the Intercontinental Championship against his longtime rival, the Miz. Whoever wins tonight will defend the title this Sunday against Sami Zayn–and by extension, the entire Raw roster–so the stakes tonight couldn’t be bigger.
We’ll also see a match between Carmella and Nikki Bella, who look to finally settle their differences ahead of the women’s five-on-five elimination contest this Sunday.
Tonight’s SmackDown goes down in Wilkes-Barre, PA at the Mohegan Sun Arena, broadcast as always live on the USA Network at 8PM Eastern/7PM Central. We’ll have live coverage of the show, so tune in tonight!
