WWE Friday Night SmackDown UPDATED Preview (August 26, 2022)

Welcome one and all to ewrestling.com’s official WWE Friday Night SmackDown Preview! Tonight’s program airs from Detroit’s Little Caesars Arena and our official preview was updated around 1:30pm EST and is reflected below! Tonight’s penultimate episode comes to us just eight days ahead of WWE’s Clash at the Castle event, which I may mistakenly refer to as Clash in the Castle, Clash in a Castle, Hush Cash at the Castle, or Frank Castle’s Jumbalaya Jamboree featuring Wilson Fisk (if you don’t get the references or humor, it’s okay, no one ever does but I will not be deterred).

    • Singles Match: Ricochet vs Happy Corbin. Last week’s gauntlet match saw the two come face-to-face, with the former Golden Gloves champ hanging in there to put down the human boomerang. Tonight, Ricochet’s looking for to dish out some comeuppance!

    • “Second Chance” Fatal 4-Way Tag Team Match: Brooke & Tamina vs Shotzi & Lia vs Doudrop & A.S.H. vs Natalya & Deville. The winning team advances to face Raquel Rodriguez & Aliyah in the semi-finals, with the advancing team squaring off against Kai & Sky in the finals at Clash at the Castle.. Also note that this match is being held to replace Toxic Attraction due to injuries sustained by Gigi Dolin; TA themselves were replacing the team of Zoey Stark & Nikkita Lyons after Zoey Stark was injured at NXT Heatwave ten days ago.

    • Somewhat Related: For you young folk into the TikToks, the WWE has begun a brief partnership campaign with the social media service to hype next weekend’s Clash at the Castle.


A Tribal Chief; a Highlander

  • The New Day Return: A mid-day update added the announcement that the New Day are returning after last week’s “Viking Funeral” by the Viking Raiders (and the Superstar fka Sarah Rowe of the Riott Squad). What do the eleven-time tag team champions have to say about that? Who knows? Who? Who? Who?


The Prophets of Positivity

  • Singles Match: Drew McIntyre vs Sami Zayn. Also added in a mid-day update is this singles match. Last week, when Special Counsel Paul Heyman and the Usos were unavailable to have Roman’s back during his face-to-face encounter with Drew McIntyre, it was Sami Zayn to came to aid the Tribal Chief, setting up tonight’s match as we continue our road to Cardiff!
