Below are the lineups for SmackDown and Rampage this week:


  • Brock Lesnar appearance
  • Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch
  • Queen’s Crown Tournament Semifinal: Carmella vs. Zelina Vega
  • King of the Ring Tournament Semifinal: Sami Zayn vs. Finn Balor

It’s kinda funny. I’m with @wai0937 let’s just enjoy this for the entertainment it is and not get salty.

I honestly didn’t expect this, but if it means we’re getting a second Bryan Danielson match this week, I’m not complaining.

I had read on the Observer site that Bobby Fish is facing Lee Moriarty.
