Otis-Mandy appearance, Naomi vs. Evans set for WWE SmackDown


After being away for several weeks, Otis & Mandy Rose will return to SmackDown next week.

A video package aired tonight showing the ‘love story’ between Otis and Mandy, highlighting a number of segments from the past. The announcers then acknowledged that the storyline couple will appear on the show next week.

Otis last wrestled on the June 12 episode of SmackDown, teaming with tag team partner Tucker & Braun Strowman, defeating Dolph Ziggler, John Morrison, and The Miz. Ziggler has since moved to Raw.

Additionally, Naomi will face Lacey Evans. The two have been at odds in recent weeks after Evans jumped Naomi during a karaoke competition. The two got confrontational again this week, with Naomi slapping Evans as she was applying lipstick, leaving Evan's face a mess.

Two title matches have been announced for next week’s SmackDown: Bayley vs. Nikki Cross for the SmackDown women’s title, and AJ Styles vs. Gran Metalik for the Intercontinental title.
