WWE SmackDown will be broadcast live from Orlando’s Amway Centre. They are making a big effort to make this occasion memorable. Roman Reigns is returning, and Dominik Mysterio is expected to defend his recently won NXT North American Championship during the event.
Dominik won his first individual championship in WWE on Wednesday. He beat Wes Lee to become the North American title holder. He got some help from his Judgment Day teammates during the match. Rhea Ripley used her championship belt to knock out Lee, while Finn Balor and Damian Priest distracted the referee.

Roman Reigns will also return
Roman Reigns has been the main star of SmackDown since he joined the brand a few years ago. He usually doesn’t appear on weekly shows because he’s now a big attraction. However, this week, he will make a rare appearance on the blue brand.
Reigns has been facing family problems for a while now. During his last appearance on SmackDown, he and Solo Sikoa joined forces to attack Jimmy Uso. As a result, Jey Uso challenged the WWE Universal Champion. Reigns was absent last Friday, but he will be back this week to talk about the ‘Rules of Engagement’ with his cousin.
On this week’s SmackDown, there will be another exciting match for the United States Championship Invitational. Four wrestlers, LA Knight, Sheamus, Rey Mysterio, and Cameron Grimes, will compete against each other. The winner will earn a chance to challenge for the Star and Stripes title.
SummerSlam’s lineup is taking shape as the event approaches. It appears like Roman Reigns will face Jey Uso in a one-on-one contest. Austin Theory will very certainly defend his championship against the event winner. In addition, Asuka, Bianca Belair, and Charlotte Flair are expected to face off in a triple-threat match.
