WWE announces lineup for this week's SmackDown


WWE has revealed much of the lineup for this week's episode of SmackDown.

Two matches and two other segments have been announced for this Friday's show. Matt Riddle will take on Sheamus, Jeff Hardy will face Baron Corbin, Bray Wyatt will host a new edition of the Firefly Fun House, and Sonya Deville will be The Miz and John Morrison's guest on The Dirt Sheet.

Corbin has offered a King's Ransom bounty to anyone who can take out Riddle. After losing to Hardy in their bar fight the previous week, Sheamus cut a promo last Friday where he sent a warning to the SmackDown roster. Sheamus said Hardy will self-destruct on his own and declared that he's moving on from his feud with Hardy.

Corbin interrupted Hardy on SmackDown last week and then defeated Drew Gulak.

Last week's SmackDown ended with an angle where The Fiend put Alexa Bliss (who is friends with Braun Strowman) in the Mandible Claw. WWE is teasing that Wyatt may reveal the motivations for that attack during tomorrow's Firefly Fun House segment.

Deville attacked Mandy Rose backstage last week, cut some of Rose's hair, and then attempted to shave her head until being stopped.
