World’s Strongest Patriot.
Two nights before Night of Champions, the 787th edition of WWE Friday Night SmackDown came to you from the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, MS. Fresh off a triumphant victory over Seth Rollins on RAW, Roman Reigns would be looking to build momentum towards his rematch with “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank” at Night of Champions as “The Juggernaut” would go one-on-one with the undefeated “Hero of the Russian Federation” Rusev on SmackDown!
They were tag team partners on RAW, but two nights before they join AJ Lee in a Triple Threat Match for the Divas Championship at Night of Champions, Divas Champion Paige would go one-on-one with Nikki Bella in a non-title match on SmackDown. Also, before their respective title matches at Night of Champions, Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler would team with United States Champion Sheamus to face the #1 Contender for the Intercontinental Title, The Miz, and the #1 Contender for the United States Title, Cesaro.
After Luke Harper & Erick Rowan got involved in Big Show’s one-on-one match with Bray Wyatt on RAW, “The World’s Largest Athlete” would be bringing back-up on SmackDown as Big Show would enlist the help of Los Matadores to face all three members of The Wyatt Family, Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, & Erick Rowan, in a 6-Man Tag Match. Also on SmackDown, the self-proclaimed “inspiration”, Bo Dallas, would face “The Real American” Jack Swagger in a rematch from RAW.
