Two matches announced for WWE SmackDown


Two matches have been confirmed for tonight's episode of SmackDown.

WWE has announced that Xavier Woods vs. Jey Uso and Cesaro vs. Sheamus will both take place on SmackDown tonight. The show is being held at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas and will also feature the return of Brock Lesnar.

Woods vs. Jey Uso will be a continuation of Woods and The New Day's feud with The Bloodline. The Usos are the current SmackDown Tag Team Champions.

Former tag team partners Cesaro and Sheamus have been feuding with each other in recent weeks. On last Friday's SmackDown, Cesaro defeated Sheamus' new partner Ridge Holland in a singles match. The match was Holland's main roster in-ring debut after being called up from NXT in the WWE Draft. Cesaro rolled him up and caught him in a pin to get the win.

Lesnar's appearance on SmackDown tonight will be the first time he's been on WWE television since the angle where he was suspended indefinitely in October. It was announced last week that Lesnar's suspension had been lifted and he would be returning tonight. The announcement was made after Sami Zayn won a Black Friday battle royal to become the number one contender to Roman Reigns' Universal Championship.
