Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Tye Dillinger set for WWE SmackDown


Another match is set for this week's edition of SmackDown.

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Tye Dillinger was added to the lineup for the show today. It was set up as they went back and forth on Twitter, playing off of Dillinger's "Perfect 10" gimmick and Nakamura facing AJ Styles in a last man standing match at Money in the Bank.

WWE then had Paige officially announce Nakamura vs. Dillinger: "Hiya boys! It sounds like you've both had some time on your hands this weekend BUT tomorrow is Tuesday and that means I make the rules...soooo I'm making it official: @ShinsukeN vs. @WWEDillinger on #SDLive."

This will be Dillinger's first time wrestling on SmackDown since the build to WrestleMania 34. On last week's episode, Nakamura laid out Styles and announced the last man standing stipulation for their WWE Championship match at Money in the Bank.

The final Money in the Bank qualifying match will take place tomorrow, with Daniel Bryan wrestling Samoa Joe for the first time in WWE. The New Day will also face The Miz, Cesaro & Sheamus in a six-man tag.
