WWE Champion Kofi Kingston leapt over Dolph Ziggler and out of a steel cage to victory on Sunday at Stomping Grounds, then bested both Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens in consecutive matches on Monday Night Raw. But the champion did not have a moment to rest last night, as Samoa Joe crept up behind him and put Kingston’s lights out with the Coquina Clutch.

How will the WWE Champion react to this shocking sneak attack?

Who will be next to step up to Bayley?

At WWE Stomping Grounds, Bayley turned back the challenge of Alexa Bliss, defeating The Goddess to retain her SmackDown Women’s Championship. When asked who should be next to step up to the plate, The Hugger named just about everyone on the Team Blue roster, from Charlotte Flair to Liv Morgan.


Will any of these women be next in line to challenge Bayley?

Has Bryan & Rowan’s tag team revolution hit a roadblock?

Daniel Bryan & Rowan’s crusade to bring respect to the tag team division took another step forward at Stomping Grounds when they defeated the powerful Heavy Machinery to retain their SmackDown Tag Team Titles. However, their cause may have taken a step back when they were eliminated first in an Eight-Man Elimination Tag Team Match by The New Day, thanks to an inadvertent assist from Raw Tag Team Champions The Revival, who could not get on the same page with Bryan & Rowan.

Can the champions bounce back? Have Xavier Woods & Big E put themselves in position for a future SmackDown Tag Team Title opportunity?

How will Shane-O-Mac & McIntyre react to The Undertaker’s return?

Shane McMahon & Drew McIntyre had Roman Reigns on the ropes, set up for a Coast-to-Coast, when their fortunes took a dark turn.

The Undertaker made a shocking appearance on Raw last night, snatching Shane-O-Mac out of the air with a Chokeslam, then staggering McIntyre with a big boot and a flurry of punches. If the surprise arrival of The Deadman wasn’t enough, The Best in The World & The Scottish Psychopath soon learned that they would be facing The Big Dog & The Phenom in a huge tag team battle at Extreme Rules.

What will be the fallout of this stunning turn of events? Find out tonight on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!
