WWE SmackDown notes: Bellas to appear, eight-man tag announced


Nikki & Brie Bella are returning to WWE television on this week's episode of SmackDown.

WWE has announced that The Bellas will be Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross' guests for a Moment of Bliss segment on this Friday's SmackDown. Dave Meltzer confirmed last week that The Bellas are scheduled to be part of this year's WWE Hall of Fame class, though the official announcement of that has yet to be made.

Nikki & Brie revealed last month that they're both pregnant and expecting babies later this year.

Season five of Total Bellas will premiere on E! at 10 p.m. Eastern time on Thursday, April 9.

An eight-man tag match has also been added to this week's SmackDown. The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Big E) will team with The Usos against The Miz, John Morrison, Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode.

New Day are defending their SmackDown Tag Team titles against Miz & Morrison at Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia next Thursday (February 27).

This week's SmackDown is taking place at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona. Goldberg will appear on the episode to continue the build to him challenging "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt for the Universal Championship at Super ShowDown.

Carmella and Naomi will face off on SmackDown to determine who will challenge for Bayley's SmackDown Women's Championship at Super ShowDown. There will also be a sit-down interview with Lacey Evans on the episode.
