Tonight’s edition of Friday Night SmackDown is the final go-home show before the 2020 Survivor Series pay-per-view this Sunday. Previously announced for SmackDown was a singles match between Seth Rollins and Murphy after Murphy helped Rey Mysterio defeat Rollins last week.

Adding to the lineup is WWE Champion Drew McIntyre returning to the blue-brand to go face-to-face with Universal Champion Roman Reigns so they can sign the contract to make their match at Survivor Series official. McIntyre was featured on last week’s SmackDown during-which he defeated Jey Uso in the main event. While mentioning Jey, he’ll be in action again as he’ll take on the returning Daniel Bryan.

Bryan and Uso competed in a singles match several weeks ago to determine who’d be joining the SmackDown men’s Survivor Series team and Jey defeated Bryan. After the match, Roman Reigns instructed Jey to continue attacking Bryan which led to Bryan being taken out on a stretcher.
