WWE Smackdown 8/7 Show Preview
Last week’s Smackdown ended with the unexpected attack on Alexa Bliss by The Fiend, Bray Wyatt’s alter ego. The Fiend’s heinous attacked will be addressed on a new edition of the Firefly Fun House on this edition of Smackdown. Another segment being advertised for Smackdown is the return of the Dirt Sheet. Miz & Morrison’s guest this week will be Sonya Deville. Deville will be discussing her brutal attack on Mandy Rose last week.
Two matches are being advertised for this show. King Corbin will take on Jeff Hardy and Sheamus will face off against Matt Riddle. We should also get some more clarity on what matches the blue brand will present for Summerslam in two weeks.
Firefly Fun House
Wrestling fans always get excited when they get a new edition of the Firefly Fun House. Since it’s inception last year, it has usually been the most entertaining segment on any show it’s on. This week’s Fun House is more intriguing than usual as it will address why The Fiend attacked Alexa Bliss last week. The obvious answer is that she was attacked due to her affiliation with the Universal Champion, Braun Strowman.
Bray Wyatt/The Fiend has unfinished business with Strowman and clearly wants his Universal Championship. The Fiend versus Braun Strowman at Summerslam has been rumored for months and will likely be announced on this week’s Smackdown. Strowman has not been seen since losing to Wyatt in the Wyatt Swamp Match at Extreme Rules.
Jeff Hardy vs. King Corbin
Jeff Hardy’s feud with Sheamus looks to be over and fans everywhere are overjoyed. Not too many people were invested in the story between the two men after it brought Hardy’s real life problems into it. But now that we are past that, Hardy goes up against King Corbin on Smackdown. With Summerslam around the corner, this match should give us a clue where each man is headed and if they will be featured on the biggest show of the summer’s card. From the looks of last week, Corbin is on a path to face Matt Riddle. With not many matches announced for this episode of Smackdown, this match will likely be given an ample amount of time.
