Major Spoilers For Tonight’s WWE Smackdown Involving Cena vs Nakamura


This week’s episode of SmackDown Live is set to take place from the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, OH, and it’s shaping up to be a huge show.

Last week it was announced that AJ Styles will defend his United States Championship against Kevin Owens, and Shinsuke Nakamura and John Cena will be facing off in a dream match. Nakamura and Cena will be fighting to decide who gets to challenge Jinder Mahal for the WWE Championship at SummerSlam, and it looks like Nakamura will likely be the one who earns the title shot.

PWInsider is reporting that current plans call for Jinder Mahal to defend the WWE Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura at SummerSlam later this month.

If this report is indeed true then it should be interesting to see what John Cena’s situation is for SummerSlam. It was announced yesterday that Cena landed a lead role in the Transformers spinoff movie “Bumblebee” which reportedly kicked off production this week. As of this writing Cena is still being advertised for SummerSlam.

WWE is focusing on the following points for this week’s episode of SmackDown Live:

  • John Cena and Shinsuke Nakamura to clash in dream match for SummerSlam WWE Title opportunity tonight on SmackDown LIVE
  • Kevin Owens challenges United States Champion AJ Styles tonight on SmackDown LIVE
  • Naomi & Becky Lynch join forces for tag team action
  • Chad Gable looks to break out against Rusev

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
