With WWE Extreme Rules just around the corner, SmackDown’s go-home show promises to be an interesting one. With only six matches scheduled for the show, WWE could be planning to use SmackDown to set up couple more matches for the event.

This taping of SmackDown which also happens to be the season premiere could feature a couple of surprises for the WWE Universe. One surprise as revealed by PW Insider is that Matt Riddle is in Worcester for tonight’s SmackDown taping.

“WWE Raw star Matt Riddle is in Worcester, MA for tonight’s Friday Night Smackdown taping, PWInsider.com has confirmed. We are told Seth Rollins, who Riddle will face on tomorrow’s WWE Extreme Rules PPV in Philadelphia, is not backstage and is not expected at the taping.”

Seth Rollins doesn’t appear to be booked for tonight’s episode. It will be interesting to see what plans WWE has in store for Matt Riddle on tonight’s episode of WWE SmackDown.
