Tonight’s WWE SmackDown from New Orleans will feature Rey Mysterio and Santos Escobar battle in the United States Championship Invitational Finals.
The two, who are also teammates in the LWO, have fought their way through separate Fatal 4-Way matches to reach this final match. They stand just one win away from a shot at the United States Championship held by Austin Theory.
Will the high-stakes contest put a strain on the The LWO? Who will emerge victorious and earn the right to challenge Austin Theory for the star-spangled title?
Additionally, Karrion Kross has issues with The O.C. as on the July 14 edition of SmackDown, Kross attacked Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson and caused a distraction that ultimately cost AJ Styles his opportunity to advance in the United States Championship Invitational. Tonight, he faces Karl Anderson in a one v. one match.
Finally, after the explosive SummerSlam twist for The Bloodline last week, featuring Tribal Combat, it’s safe to assume that Jey Uso will likely have a segment or two as he approaches his destiny-defining match against Roman Reigns in Detroit.
