Two big matches have been announced for next week’s WWE Friday Night SmackDown show.
On the blue brand WWE on FOX program this week, which emanated from the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas, a backstage segment took place where the long-teased showdown between Naomi and Sonya Deville was confirmed.
The rivalry between the two has been teased for multiple weeks, with Deville leaning into her authority figure role to torment Naomi many times, including blatantly instructing a WWE referee to purposely do a fast-count during a pin attempt on her during a match.
Also announced for next week’s show is a big singles match pitting Jeff Hardy one-on-one against Happy Corbin.
This one was set up on Friday night’s show in San Antonio as well, as “The Charismatic Enigma” was joined by “The Scottish Warrior” Drew McIntyre for a two-on-two beat down of Corbin and Madcap Moss on their “Happy Talk” talk-show segment on this week’s blue brand program.
As previously reported, WWE also ran the final vignette promoting the brand debut of Xia Li on next week’s show, as she will make her first SmackDown television appearance in her new role after being drafted to the WWE on FOX show in the 2021 WWE Draft.
