Lumberjacking A Win.
Ten nights before Night of Champions, the 838th edition of WWE Thursday Night SmackDown came to you from the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre, PA. After a terrible night on RAW for WWE World Heavyweight and United States Champion Seth Rollins where he lost to Ryback, lost to John Cena and The Prime Time Players in the main event, and has his statue crushed in a garbage truck by Sting, Rollins would get the chance to right at least one of those wrongs as the dual champion would go one-on-one with Intercontinental Champion Ryback in a rematch from RAW, but this time it would be a Champion vs. Champion Lumberjack Match where several WWE Superstars will surround the ring for the match with their job being to keep the two competitors in the ring! Can Seth Rollins avenge his loss to Ryback and get himself back on the right track before his two title defenses at Night of Champions?
Also on SmackDown, with Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns still without a partner for their 6-Man Tag Match against The Wyatt Family at Night of Champions, “The Big Dog” would call out to his family for help as SmackDown would see Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns team up with Roman’s cousin Jimmy Uso to face WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day in a 6-Man Tag Match. Can the team of Ambrose, Reigns, & Uso prove to be formidable enough to defeat the WWE Tag Team Champions? Will The Wyatt Family target Jimmy Uso for destruction just like they did to potential tag team partner Randy Orton on RAW?
