Ready for War.
Three nights before WWE TLC, the 851st edition of WWE Thursday Night SmackDown came to you from the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, FL. Before he challenges Sheamus for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in a Tables, Ladders, & Chairs Match this Sunday at WWE TLC, Roman Reigns would be in action on SmackDown as “The Big Dog” would go one-on-one with one of Sheamus’ League of Nations allies, United States Champion Alberto Del Rio, in a non-title match. Also on SmackDown, before they go one-on-one for the Intercontinental Championship at WWE TLC, Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens and “The Lunatic Fringe” Dean Ambrose would be in the same ring at the same time to make the match in the official contract signing for the championship bout. After Dean Ambrose threw popcorn and soda in the face of the Intercontinental Champion on RAW, is a brawl between Kevin Owens and Dean Ambrose a certainty?
