In typical WWE fashion, they announced some matches for next week’s Smackdown today. Here’s what we know so far:
Ricochet and Aleister Black will team up to face the team of Shinsuke Nakamura and Rusev with Lana. That will be a first time ever tag team match between two of NXT’s big names and the new heel duo of Nakamura and Rusev.
Johnny Gargano will face Cesaro in singles action. This comes one week after Gargano and his partner Tommaso Ciampa beat Cesaro and Sheamus in a tag team match last week on Smackdown Live. Ciampa appeared to hurt his left knee during the match, so maybe that’s why he’s not wrestling here. There is no report of an injury to Ciampa, but he might be banged up a bit.
Gargano tweeted about it.
Let's start checking off all of those "dream matches you never knew you needed until right now"..
This Tuesday on #SDLive..

In other Smackdown news, Daniel Bryan and Kofi Kingston will have a contract signing segment to make their WWE Title match at Fastlane official. The match will take place in two weeks on March 10th.
Will the contract signing lead to a brawl? Probably. This is WWE, after all.
That’s all for now.
