In an exciting, new development in the world of professional wrestling, three more WWE Raw stars are reportedly joining Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso for the October 6 episode of SmackDown. Fans can expect to see an action-packed event as we head towards WWE Fastlane on October 7. Rhodes and Uso, powering up for Judgment Day, will be stepping into the SmackDown ring this Friday.
Our insiders at PWInsider have reported that wrestling fans attending the October 6 SmackDown taping in St. Louis, Missouri, can anticipate a surprise. All three members of the reputable Alpha Academy, including Chad Gable, Otis, and Maxxine Dupri, will be at the taping, though their exact roles remain a mystery. Could they be there for a dark match? With Gable hinting about a potential single’s push, only time will tell.
Adding to the thrill, we also have it on good authority that Finn Balor and Damian Priest, Rhodes and Uso’s adversaries at Fastlane, are confirmed to appear on this week’s SmackDown. Wrestling icon, John Cena is scheduled to be there too, preparing to team up with LA Knight against Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso at the much-coveted Fastlane.
Talking about Cena, next week’s episode of WWE NXT is set to see him, along with Paul Heyman and Cody Rhodes, making an appearance. They will face stiff competition as that Tuesday, October 10 episode will be up against AEW Dynamite’s Title Tuesday special. AEW Dynamite fans can expect Adam Copeland’s debut match against the indomitable Luchasaurus and a high-stakes AEW Women’s World Championship match featuring Saraya and Hikaru Shida.
Awaiting the announcement for Title Tuesday is also a sensorial showdown between Swerve Strickland and Bryan Danielson to determine the number one contender to Christian Cage’s TNT Championship. It’s a nail-biting time in the world of professional wrestling, ladies, and gentlemen.
As I always say, there’s much more to this world than what happens inside the ring. If you want to dive deeper, I recommend Wrestling Unmasked, a new book by WrestleTalk that explores untold stories, politics, and endless drama from behind the scenes. It’ll show you how to experience this electrifying sport in an entirely new light.
