WWE Smackdown Live preview & schedule: August 27, 2019
The ongoing ‘mystery attacker’ angle will be the headliner of this week’s Smackdown since WWE is yet to reveal the man behind those nasty actions. The WWE Championship storyline will also be in progress to set up a Summerslam rematch for the upcoming PPV Smackdown event. Also, the last two matches of King of the Ring tournament’s first round will be there when the show airs from the Raising Cane’s River Center Arena in Baton Rouge, Lousiana. The initially thought simple storyline around Roman Reigns is becoming more complex as weeks are passing by. Daniel Bryan was the reported mastermind behind those life-threatening attacks with Rowan acting as his muscle. But the involvement of Buddy Murphy and a lookalike of Rowan created a riddle that’s tough to resolve.
Last week, Smackdown ended on a confusing note where Roman Reigns found it hard to believe that it was the Rowan lookalike who tried to hurt him. The former Smackdown tag team champions had nothing to do with it, as per their claiming. However, that’s not the case as we know that WWE has already pitted them for a match at Clash of Champions. It is likely that the mystery finally comes to an end on tonight’s show to make the PPV match official when Bryan and Reigns meet face to face for a confrontation segment
