Two matches announced for tonight's WWE SmackDown


Two matches have been announced for tonight's go-home edition of SmackDown.

Before Fastlane takes place on Sunday night, WWE Champion AJ Styles will face another one of his challengers in a non-title match. It will be Styles vs. Dolph Ziggler, which comes after John Cena defeated the champion last week to earn his spot in the main event of Fastlane.

In a post-match angle after Styles vs. Cena, Ziggler made the save for them and fought off Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and Baron Corbin. He then punched Styles before being laid out with an Attitude Adjustment from Cena.

Styles will defend his title against Cena, Ziggler, Owens, Zayn, and Corbin in a six-pack challenge at Fastlane.

Randy Orton vs. Jinder Mahal is also set for tonight. They have been involved in the United States title picture over the last few weeks, and it will currently be Orton challenging for Bobby Roode's championship on Sunday. The storyline when the title match was announced was that Daniel Bryan wanted to give Mahal the shot, but Shane McMahon overruled him and went with Orton.

Charlotte Flair and Ruby Riott will participate in a face-to-face segment ahead of their Women's title match at Fastlane. And, as was set up after last week's episode, WWE is teasing that Becky Lynch will face Carmella.
