SmackDown Live follows RAW’s lead tonight as the blue brand is set to go live from Toronto, Canada in a few hours time and interestingly, there are a number of recognizable names backstage.
Last night on RAW the WWE Universe saw Trish Stratus make her first WWE appearance since The Royal Rumble when she stepped up to Elias, before beginning the build to her match against Alexa Bliss at Evolution.
According to a report by PWInsider, Trish Stratus is once again backstage at WWE tonight and is joined by Santino Marella, who has recently been working for Impact Wrestling. Of course, Stratus and Marella could be stopping by to catch up with some of their friends in the company, or the former seven-time Women’s Champion could be there to build towards Evolution with some of the women of SmackDown Live.
Mike Johnson has also revealed that Brie Bella and Maryse are backstage which makes sense since the two women are set to collide at Hell In A Cell in a mixed tag team match that will also include The Miz and Daniel Bryan.
Last week, Brie Bella made her return to SmackDown Live and their match for Hell In A Cell was made, but it has recently been reported that Brie and Maryse may not be finished with each other after Hell In A Cell, since it’s likely that the two women would be set to collide at Evolution in two months time as well.
Hell In A Cell is now less than three weeks away and SmackDown will have to turn up the heat if they have any hope of following last night’s episode of RAW.
