SmackDown LIVE preview, July 9, 2019: Owens and Ziggler clash after brief partnership implodes
After bickering over who deserved a WWE Championship opportunity more, Kevin Owens and Dolph Ziggler were given the chance to earn a chance at a title, though not the one they were looking for. Shane McMahon made them join forces to battle Heavy Machinery, with the winner being placed into the SmackDown Tag Team Title Match at WWE Extreme Rules. Unfortunately for them, KO & The Showoff could not get on the same page, leading to Otis & Tucker’s victory. After another argument, Owens dropped Ziggler with a Stunner, declaring that SmackDown LIVE was his show. The two will get a chance to settle the score when they go one-on-one on the blue brand. Who will emerge victorious from this heated battle? Find out tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network!

Kevin Owens and Dolph Ziggler’s shortly tenured partnership implodes
Against their wishes, Kevin Owens and Dolph Ziggler were paired together as a tag team last Tuesday night by Shane McMahon … and, well, it didn’t turn out great.

Though they were given a chance to earn their way into the SmackDown Tag Team Title Match at Extreme Rules by defeating Heavy Machinery, KO and The Showoff could not get on the same page. By match’s end, Owens and Ziggler were trading fists with one another as opposed to Otis & Tucker. SmackDown LIVE went off the air with KO dropping The Showoff with a Stunner, and in the aftermath of that, the two will collide in one-on-one competition tonight.

Which Superstar will continue to ascend the ranks on the blue brand? Find out on SmackDown LIVE.

Finn Bálor and Shinsuke Nakamura battle on the blue brand
Shinsuke Nakamura eyed-up Intercontinental Champion Finn Bálor and, seemingly, his title two weeks ago on SmackDown LIVE. Nakamura will now get up-close-and-personal with Bálor when the two face-off tonight.

Can The King of Strong Style topple The Extraordinary Man and cause a major ripple effect on the Intercontinental Championship picture?

Aleister Black’s opponent for WWE Extreme Rules to be revealed
For weeks, Aleister Black has been begging for someone on SmackDown LIVE to knock on his door and pick a fight with him. Finally, someone answered the call two weeks ago, and tonight, the WWE Universe will discover just who it was.

Who will step to The Dutch Destroyer at WWE Extreme Rules? Tune-in to SmackDown LIVE to find out!

SmackDown Tag Team Championship Summit to take place
SmackDown Tag Team Champions Daniel Bryan & Rowan’s mission to have the Tag Team division take centerstage on Team Blue will enter its next phase tonight, when the first-ever SmackDown Tag Team Championship Summit takes place.

Bryan & Rowan, The New Day and Heavy Machinery, the three teams that will square off for the titles at WWE Extreme Rules, will all be present. Will tensions rise just five nights before the major Triple Threat title match? Find out on SmackDown LIVE, tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network!

Nikki Cross to battle Carmella tonight on SmackDown LIVE

I swear to God, if Bray Wyatt is Aleister's opponent, then that is one way to kill both gimmicks in one match. Neither guy should be losing period if they want to get both of them over.

This card doesn't speak to me the same way Raw's did, but I believe in Easy E.

Ziggler would benefit more by using his amatuer skills.

Could've went for a single leg into an Olympic and transition into a slam......works every time.
