Contract Signing & Tournament Match Added To This Week’s Smackdown

Contract Signing & Tournament Match Added To This Week’s Smackdown

August 11, 2022 0 By Tim Jarrell

The first two things have been set for Smackdown.

Friday Night Smackdown this week comes to us from Raleigh, North Carolina and things have been known for the show. We know we will see Karrion Kross and Scarlett as well as the Women’s Tag Team Tournament. On Thursday, WWE officially announced a match and a segment for tomorrow night’s show.

First off WWE has announced a contract signing for Smackdown. After Shayna Baszler won a gauntlet match next week to earn a title shot, she and Liv Morgan will come together to sign the contract & make the match official.

Just three weeks ahead of their clash at the castle in Cardiff, Wales, SmackDown Women’s Champion Liv Morgan and Shayna Baszler will sign on the dotted line.

Baszler won the right to face Morgan after overcoming six other Superstars in a frenetic Gauntlet Match last week on SmackDown. Now, Baszler faces a weakened and vulnerable Morgan, whose arm was brutally mangled at the hands of Ronda Rousey, both during and after their title match at SummerSlam.

This is sure to be a must-see contract signing, as Morgan and Baszler are both known for their fire in the heat of the moment.

As far as action goes, the Women’s Tag Team Title Tournament will continue tomorrow night with the first Smackdown side match. The team of Raquel Rodriguez & Aliyah will take on the team of Xia Li and Shotzi.

The WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Tournament began on Monday Night Raw when Dakota Kai and IYO SKY bested 24/7 Champion Dana Brooke and Tamina. Now, the tournament continues as Raquel Rodriguez and Aliyah take on Shotzi and Xia Li.

Shotzi and Li have been aligned for the past few weeks and may have an advantage as they have the most chemistry going into the match.

However, Rodriguez brings incredible intensity and is coming off an incredible performance in the Gauntlet Match, wherein she pinned four other Superstars before losing to Shayna Baszler in the final match.

Who will progress to the semifinals of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Tournament?

So far these two things are the only two things that have been officially announced for tomorrow night’s Friday Night Smackdown. If we do hear anything else regarding tomorrow night’s blue branded show on FOX, we will have it here and on the PWUnlimited YouTube Channel.
