WWE SmackDown Preview, May 8: Bray Wyatt To Confront Braun Strowman

Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt to confront each other

Just two days ahead of their title showdown at Money In The Bank, Universal Champion Braun Strowman and his challenger “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt will come face to face on the blue brand.

Wyatt has been sending messages to Strowman directly from his Firefly Fun House abode, but the latter has gotten tired of the whole puppet show. The Monster has thus invited his former Wyatt Family member to confront him in person this week at the Performance Center.

Can both men have a non-physical faceoff ahead of their title match? Or will Wyatt bring along his Fiend avatar and hurt his former “Black Sheep” tonight?

Jeff Hardy’s comeback continues

Prior to WrestleMania 36, Jeff Hardy returned to WWE storylines and defeated King Corbin in his first match of 2020. The Charismatic Enigma’s comeback continues but Sheamus‘ increasing frustration with the ongoing Hardy tributes has led to an unsanctioned face-off that’s scheduled for tonight.

Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville ready to settle the dispute in the ring

Having cost Mandy Rose the Money in the Bank Qualifying Match against Carmella and subsequently assaulting her former bestie last week, Sonya Deville will now square off with God’s Greatest Creation tonight.

Can Otis’ devoted love push Rose to victory? Or will Dolph Ziggler’s scheming ways allow Deville to go over?

Tamina to team up with Lacey Evans against Bayley & Sasha Banks

Tamina will take on SmackDown Women’s Title match against Bayley this Sunday at Money In The Bank, but ahead of that, it’s time for the Samoan powerhouse to build some last-minute momentum by taking care of the so-called “role models” of the blue brand. Meanwhile, Sasha Banks‘ elimination at the hands of Lacey Evans has pushed The Boss to ardently seek revenge on The Lady.

Can the babyfaces school the heels ahead of the PPV? Or will Bayley-Banks fill the cracks in their friendship with a sweet victory over Tamina-Evans?

Daniel Bryan & Drew Gulak await mystery partner to combat King Corbin, Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro

Ahead of their collision in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match, Daniel Bryan and King Corbin resort to settle their recent dispute in a 6-Man Tag Team encounter. With the numbers’ advantage in The King’s corner, who will emerge in Bryan & Gulak’s corner to even the odds?
