This Friday’s edition of Smackdown is the WWE’s ‘go home’ show prior to Sunday’s pay-per-view, ‘Hell in a Cell.”
Smackdown was pre-taped in Birmingham, AL on Tuesday.
With feuds coming to a head, this Smackdown should be one to not forget, as its main job is to tempt you to purchase Sunday’s PPV. What will happen with Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton, and what about CM Punk and Paul Heyman?
Questions will be answered on Sunday, but until then you can read Friday’s Smackdown results via WrestlingInc.com
Or, you can wait till Friday evening and watch the show for yourself.
