Miz TV with Bryan & Kane, two matches added to WWE SmackDown


A Miz TV segment and two more matches have been added to the lineup for SmackDown's go-home show for Extreme Rules.

Ahead of challenging for The Bludgeon Brothers' Tag Team titles on Sunday, Daniel Bryan & Kane will appear on Miz TV to open tonight's episode. Andrade "Cien" Almas will also face Sin Cara, and Samoa Joe will wrestle Tye Dillinger.

Almas vs. Sin Cara was originally scheduled to take place on the June 12 edition of SmackDown, but it was canceled when WWE explained that, due to Sin Cara suffering a storyline shoulder injury when Almas attacked him the previous week, Sin Cara wasn't able to compete. Neither has wrestled on SmackDown since, and Almas has only wrestled twice on the show since being called up from NXT. Both of those matches were against enhancement wrestlers.

Sin Cara has been Almas' regular opponent on house shows, and Almas defeated him in a dark match prior to last week's episode.

Joe vs. Dillinger was set up in a post-show video last week. R-Truth told Joe that he didn't stand a chance against Dillinger, Joe asked Dillinger if that was true, and Dillinger challenged him to the match.

WWE Champion AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura in a non-title match is also advertised for tonight's SmackDown, along with Asuka vs. James Ellsworth in a lumberjack match. The show is being held at the SNHU Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire.
