Additionally, WWE.com is hyping the following story line points for tonight:
Will Sami Zayn face any consequences for his actions last week?Bobby Roode to battle Baron Corbin ahead of WWE Clash of ChampionsCharlotte Flair to take on TaminaWhat will reign supreme: The Power of Positivity or Rusev Day?The Bludgeon Brothers’ reign of terror continues
“Last Tuesday, Sami Zayn was barred from ringside by Shane McMahon for the main event battle between his best friend Kevin Owens and Randy Orton. Zayn, in direct defiance of the SmackDown LIVE Commissioner, waited until the match left ringside to interfere, clobbering The Viper with a steel chair and helping KO win.
With the intense scrutiny he and Owens have faced over the last few months, one would think that this deed will not go unpunished, though Zayn could make the argument that he technically didn’t break any of Shane’s rules since his interference did not occur at ringside. What consequences await Zayn this week on SmackDown LIVE?”
