Two matches, contract signing announced for WWE SmackDown


Two matches and a contract signing segment have been announced for Tuesday's SmackDown.

Johnny Gargano vs. Cesaro is set for the episode, along with Ricochet & Aleister Black vs. Shinsuke Nakamura & Rusev. There will also be a contract signing with WWE Champion Daniel Bryan and Kofi Kingston on Tuesday's SmackDown to build up their title match at Fastlane on March 10.

Gargano tweeted about facing Cesaro: "Let's start checking off all of those 'dream matches you never knew you needed until right now'.. This Tuesday on #SDLive.. Johnny Wrestling vs Swiss Cyborg"

Tommaso Ciampa will be in Gargano's corner for the match, while Sheamus will be in Cesaro's corner.

Gargano, Ciampa, Ricochet, and Black debuted on Raw last week and then wrestled on SmackDown the next night. Gargano & Ciampa defeated Raw Tag Team Champions The Revival in a non-title match on Monday and Cesaro & Sheamus on Tuesday.

Ricochet & Finn Balor defeated Bobby Lashley & Lio Rush on Raw, with Ricochet then defeating Eric Young on SmackDown. Black got wins against Elias and Andrade.

Kingston vs. Bryan was confirmed for Fastlane after Kingston pinned Bryan in a six-man tag main event on last week's SmackDown.

Tuesday's SmackDown is taking place at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
