WWE title number one contender's match set for SmackDown


A six-way match to determine a title contender for the Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt winner will headline tonight's SmackDown episode from Louisville.

Announced for the match are Luke Harper, Erick Rowan, Mojo Rawley, Dolph Ziggler, Jinder Mahal, and Sami Zayn. It's notable that both AJ Styles and Baron Corbin are not in this match. It's not clear if the winner would face Orton, who would be the likely champion, in a TV match or at the May 21st Backlash pay-per-view in Chicago. Styles is expected to face Kevin Owens on that show.

Owens will be doing a "Face of America" open challenge tonight.

In addition, a rematch with Austin Aries vs. TJ Perkins will be on 205 Live, as well as Alicia Fox confronting Noam Dar about her embarrassing situation with the gift where powder was all over her from last week's show. Perkins beat Aries in their last meeting.
