WWE is making a lot of very interesting moves. Now they will be airing another house show on the WWE Network out of nowhere. The event will be called Smackville and it will air live from Nashville, Tennessee.
Kofi Kingston will put his WWE Title on the line against Samoa Joe and Dolph Ziggler in a triple threat match. This live WWE Network special kind of came out of nowhere and it isn’t even counter programming an AEW event. So, that’s something too.
In WWE’s official announcement of the event, it was also said that Shinsuke Nakamura and Finn Balor are slated to face each other for the IC Title. So apparently, Finn’s two-month hiatus hasn’t started just yet.
The explosive in-ring action will include a main event Triple Threat Match for the WWE Championship in which Kofi Kingston will be challenged by Dolph Ziggler and Samoa Joe. In addition, newly crowned Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura will go head-to-head with former titleholder Finn Bálor in a rematch from WWE Extreme Rules. The evening will also feature a special musical performance by Elias.
We will have to wait and see what happens here, but we’ve heard rumblings that they will start to air more Saturday night house shows on the WWE Network. Therefore, this might be a great opportunity to see what they can do.
