The main event of next week’s Smackdown Live

Smackdown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan announced this past week on Talking Smack that AJ Styles would face Dean Ambrose next week upon the champion’s request. The stipulation of the match is that if Dean Ambrose wins, he will obtain a future title shot against AJ Styles.

This is the third time they will be facing in the last month and a half, and the fourth time overall this year. It will be a good way to fill in time till Survivor Series which is now just less than a month away(essentially 4 episodes of Smackdown Live).

The second match announced was Kane vs Bray Wyatt in a No Disqualification match. This past week, Kane made a reappearance in a casket after disappearing the week before. The supernatural feud will continue as Luke Harper will be there to back The Eater Of Worlds and Randy Orton will be there to back The Big Red Monster.

Also, Smackdown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch will be making her return from an injury that lasted a few weeks.

She was out with the undisclosed personal injury, but it was announced that she would be defending her Smackdown Women’s Championship on November 8th in the Smackdown Live episode taking place in Glasgow, Scotland against Alexa Bliss. She was supposed to defend it against her at No Mercy but had to pull out due to the injury.

It is not clear whether she will wrestle or not, but she is back, and that’s always a good thing. The face of the Smackdown Women’s Division will definitely set her sights on the Small but Fierce number one contender, who just last week successfully defeated Naomi to seal the November 8th match as a one-on-one match and not a triple threat.

Here is a clip of AJ Styles on this past week’s Talking Smack:

It is interesting because he accused Daniel Bryan of being the very authority that he fought against. There has never been anyone who called the leader of the Yes Movement that, as he has been one of the most beloved babyfaces in WWE for the past three years.
