WWE SmackDown Preview For Tonight (5/27)

Tonight, WWE SmackDown on FOX will broadcast live from the Simmons Bank Arena in North Little Rock, Arkansas, as part of the road to Hell In a Cell.

The Bloodline will return to SmackDown tonight with all the gold. Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns will appear alongside Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos, who defeated RK-Bro last Friday to unify the RAW and SmackDown brand Tag Team Titles.

This week, Drew McIntyre will be back to continue his battle with The Bloodline. Due to a promotional visit to the United Kingdom, he had last week off.

Only one match for tonight’s show has been revealed, as of this writing, Butch, Sheamus, and Ridge Holland vs. Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston, and a mystery partner in a six-man match. Woods is bringing in a mystery partner to help even the odds against the Brawling Brutes stable, but no word on who that will be.

After missing last week, SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey is expected to return this week.

Max Dupri, the former LA Knight, is expected to be on tonight’s SmackDown. He revealed the new gimmick last week and is expected to join the blue brand with his Maximum Male Models firm.

Cody Rhodes, Kevin Owens, and Ezekiel are all expected to be on tonight’s show, although most likely as dark match participants, if at all. The venue is advertising Rhodes vs. Owens.
