First match announced for next week’s WWE SmackDown


WWE has announced the first and only match thus far for next week’s SmackDown in Little Rock, Arkansas.

A six-man tag team match will see Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston, and a mystery partner take on the Brawling Brutes (Sheamus, Ridge Holland, and Butch). This comes after what happened on Friday’s edition of SmackDown.

Woods defeated Butch in a singles match on the show when Sheamus and Ridge Holland appeared on the entrance ramp and distracted Woods long enough for Butch to attack Woods from behind.

Woods said in a later backstage promo that he was tired of playing the numbers game and while Big E was still recovering thanks to Holland, he had a partner that would even the odds.

The Brawling Brutes have continued to feud with Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods since WrestleMania 38 as last week’s SmackDown saw Butch beat Kofi Kingston in a singles match.
