A War Between Families.
The 833rd edition of WWE Thursday Night SmackDown came to you from the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, CA. Together with Dean Ambrose and Randy Orton, Roman Reigns was able to take down Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, & Sheamus in 6-Man Tag action on RAW, but now “The Big Dog” will face another tough test on SmackDown as Reigns will go one-on-one with “The Bulgarian Brute” Rusev! In what is sure to be a hard-hitting collision between two intense Superstars, who will emerge victorious? While Roman Reigns is sure to have the momentum heading into the match, Rusev’s win/loss record speaks for itself, having only lost a few times this calendar year. Will Bray Wyatt show up on SmackDown with revenge in mind?
