SmackDown Live Preview: Cena vs Nakamura for the first time ever

A match years in the making is set as Free Agent John Cena takes on Shinsuke Nakamura where the winner will face Jinder Mahal for the WWE Title at SummerSlam.


A Dream Match

WWE’s biggest superstar John Cena meets Japanese megastar Shinsuke Nakamura in a match that is a decade in the making. The two biggest names on opposite hemispheres finally meet where the winner of tonight’s main event would take on Jinder Mahal for the WWE Championship at SummerSlam.

Will the leader of Cenation carry on in his bid for a record breaking 17th World Title reign or will The King of Strong Style go on and add another top title on his list of major league accolades?

Immediate Rematch

Just a week after losing the WWE United States Title once again in a triple threat match that also featured a returning Chris Jericho, Kevin Owens has immediately invoked his rematch clause and will take on AJ Styles for the title tonight. What will KO’s game plan be tonight and will his former best friend show up ringside during the match?

Straight Fiery Glow 

SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi teams up with the WWE’s Lass Kicker Becky Lynch as they take on contenders Natalya and Ms Money in the Bank Carmella. While Lynch and Naomi are known to put differences aside to accomplish the task at hand, what might be intriguing is how the current number one contender Natalya and contractual contender Carmella will do as a team as both have set sights on a common goal. Which team can work together and pick up momentum headed to SummerSlam?

USA vs Bulgaria all over again?

Chad Gable looks to test himself in singles competition as he takes on Rusev who is coming off a loss to John Cena in a Flag Match at Battleground. The former Olympian looks to break out as his former partner Jason Jordan has moved to greener pastures as the son of Raw General Manager Kurt Angle on the Red Brand.

Will the former American Alpha member be able to put down a raging Bulgarian alone or will Rusev continue to berate the country Gable proudly wrestles for?

Can we please just know who it is?

The most mysterious case of the Fashion Files to date is still ongoing as Battleground provided no answers while last week’s episode of SmackDown Live provided no appearance. This week is the time we are supposed to get another lead into the culprits for the thrashing of their office and the murder of a horse. Can we just please get some answers?

What are you hoping to see tonight on SmackDown Live? Let us know in the comments below!
