The 842nd edition of WWE Thursday Night SmackDown came to you from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA. Just under three weeks before he steps into the unforgiving Hell in a Cell to finish his gritty rivalry with Bray Wyatt at WWE Hell in a Cell, Roman Reigns would join forces with Randy Orton on SmackDown as “The Big Dog” and “The Viper” would face “The Eater of Worlds” Bray Wyatt and The Wyatt Family’s unstoppable mastodon Braun Strowman in tag team action! Fresh off of their surprising and vicious beatdown of Dolph Ziggler, The Dudley Boyz, & United States Champion John Cena on RAW, WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day would appear on SmackDown to address their newfound attitude and their new mean streak. With a WWE Tag Team Title defense against The Dudley Boyz coming up at WWE Hell in a Cell, The New Day will certainly have to be on the lookout for their WWE Hell in a Cell challengers, as well as Dolph Ziggler and John Cena. Will The New Day’s beatdown of these four Superstars come back to haunt the WWE Tag Team Champions?
