The date is set for the latest showdown between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar. It’ll happen on October 21st...when WWE returns to Saudi Arabia for its latest Crown Jewel show.
WWE announced the match Thursday, but did not promise that Reigns will defend the Universal Title...because he has a title defense against Finn Balor at Extreme Rules on September 26th.
The Street Profits will get another shot at The Usos and the SmackDown Tag Titles at Extreme Rules. Their title match last Friday ended in a disqualification.
As of Thursday night, there are no matches announced for tonight’s SmackDown.
WWE announced Thursday that MVP suffered a broken rib from an RKO by Randy Orton on this past Monday’s Raw...and MVP “is out indefinitely”.
Pretty Deadly are still the NXT UK Tag Team Champions. They beat Joe & Mark Coffey to retain the gold in the main event of Thursday’s NXT UK.
Also on the show, Noam Dar beat Kenny Williams to advance to the finals of the Heritage Cup #1 Contender Tournament.
