Good evening and welcome to our live coverage of tonight’s WWE SmackDown Live, as we’re currently concerning three-and-a-half weeks faraway from WrestleMania 35!
Last night’s Raw was quite interesting show, so we could be in for similar tonight.
Here’s what’s being advertised:
Shane McMahon to address his actions at Fastlane Ricochet, Black & Hardy Boyz vs. The Bar, Nakamura & Rusev Mr McMahon to address Kofi Kingston The live blog below will begin from the start of the show at 8pm ET/midnight GMT, with live updates, results and reaction to all the action.
MAJOR Kofi Kingston match next week
WWE SmackDown Live Vince points out that when he told Kofi there’d be a three-way for the WWE Title at Fastlane, he never actually said Kofi would be in it.
New Day come out with their business faces on cutting off Vince mid-sentence. Big chants for Kofi, of course.
Both Woods and E vouch for Kofi, saying he’s both earned and deserves a shot at the WWE Championship. However, Vince says Kofi just isn’t championship material, and says that Bryan called Kofi a good “B+ player”. Wowzers.
Kofi himself says that he’s never once complained about working for Vince, and wants Vince to tell him what he needs to do to earn an opportunity.
However, Randy Orton has come out, and Samoa Joe, and the Bar, and Rowan.
