WWE.com released the following preview for tonight’s show:
SmackDown LIVE preview, May 28, 2019: Kingston and Owens clash in latest chapter of intense rivalry
Though WWE Champion Kofi Kingston may have his focus on Dolph Ziggler and their battle at WWE Super ShowDown, The Dreadlocked Dynamo still has at least one other Superstar to worry about: Kevin Owens. Though KO came up short in his WWE Title Match with Kingston at Money in the Bank, the rivalry is far from over, as evidenced by Owens’ alleged attack on New Day member Big E last Tuesday. What will happen when Kingston and Owens write the next chapter of their rivalry? Find out tonight on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!
Kofi Kingston to clash with Kevin Owens
The next chapter in the rivalry between WWE Champion Kofi Kingston and Kevin Owens will be written on SmackDown LIVE, as the two will clash in one-on-one action.
Though Kingston emerged victorious from their championship battle at WWE Money in the Bank, matters are apparently not settled between the two Superstars. But Kingston’s condition heading into the match has to be questioned, as the WWE Champion was once again attacked by his Super ShowDown opponent, Dolph Ziggler, last night on Raw.
Can Kingston fight through the pain and defeat his rival, or will KO put himself in line for another championship opportunity?
Bayley goes one-on-one with Raw’s Lacey Evans
The target on Bayley’s back is only getting bigger, and with the Wild Card Rule in effect, there’s twice as many Superstars gunning for the SmackDown Women’s Champion.
Tonight on SmackDown LIVE, The Hugger will go one-on-one with Raw’s Sassy Southern Belle, Lacey Evans. Last week, Bayley teamed up with Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch to defeat Evans & Charlotte Flair. Will the result be the same in this singles bout?
How will Roman Reigns respond to Shane McMahon and his “insurance policy”?
Roman Reigns looked to have Shane McMahon in his sights last week on SmackDown LIVE, only for Raw’s Drew McIntyre to blindside him with a devastating Claymore Kick.
The antagonism toward The Big Dog continued on Raw last night when McMahon and McIntyre viciously attacked Lance Anoa’i, a cousin of Roman’s. When “The Best in The World” took things a little too far by locking on a second triangle hold post-match, The Big Dog came to his cousin’s aid, taking McIntyre out with a Superman Punch that staggered The Scottish Terminator but gave McMahon an opening to escape by the skin of his teeth.
Now that Shane McMahon has crossed another line by going after Roman’s family, how will The Big Dog respond?
Can R-Truth make it through another night as 24/7 Champion?
It’s been a rough week for 24/7 Champion R-Truth. Despite his best efforts to hide from his fellow Superstars, Truth has yet to have a peaceful moment since dethroning Robert Roode for the title. It was no different when he made his way to Raw last night for The Usos’ block party.
R-Truth got rolled up and nearly lost the title on several occasions, but he once again ran off into the night as a cadre of Superstars gave chase. Will it once again be #RunTruthRun on SmackDown LIVE, or will a new 24/7 Champion be crowned? Find out tonight on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!
