A match with Undisputed WWE Universal Championship implications is set for tonight's episode of SmackDown.

WWE has announced that Drew McIntyre vs. Sheamus will take place on SmackDown tonight. The winner will challenge for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WWE's Clash at the Castle pay-per-view on Saturday, September 3.
