WWE Smackdown Preview (9/18) - AJ Styles vs Sami Zayn; Sasha Banks Responds to Bayley; A Moment of Bliss with Nikki Cross

In a battle between previous Intercontinental Champions on WWE Smackdown, Sami Zayn is going to have his first match since returning to the WWE when he faces AJ Styles.

This looks like a number one contenders match for Jeff Hardy’s Intercontinental Championship, and that should provoke a reaction from Zayn either way.

If Zayn wins, he’ll claim Styles is the real champion or, more likely, say he didn’t put his championship up and therefore will still be the Intercontinental champion.

While it’s logical to expect the winner to Face Jeff at Clash of Champions, we still expect it to be a Triple Threat.

Zayn or Styles will cause a ruckus at the pay-per-view or next week resulting in a new match.

Sasha Banks Responds to Bayley

Two weeks after being attacked by Bayley, Sasha Banks will break her silence and respond to Bayley’s monologue last week.

To say their friendship is over is an understatement, and we expect Banks’ comments to further cement her as a face as she’s deny ever planning on betraying Bayley.

We think this is true because she never hesitated to sacrifice herself to protect Bayley, while Bayley held back.

We expect Banks to call Bayley out for her actions and promise her own payback, which wouldn’t been great at Payback, but that’s just us.

Eventually, Banks will get around to challenging Bayley for the WWE Smackdown Women’s Championship, and we expect that to be at Hell in a Cell in what could be the match of the year.

This should be an interesting segment as it’s something many of us have been waiting for, and they’re more than capable of making their feud last for the next few months.

Despite that, Hell in a Cell or Survivor Series feels like the best pay-per-views to end their feud on, and this could upset fans for not getting things rolling sooner.

Bayley and Banks are can easily make their feud last longer, but our concern is WWE creative will get in the way in some manner.

We’re keeping our fingers crossed.

A Moment of Bliss with Nikki Cross

Last week, Nikki Cross said she’s determined to save her best friend, Alexa Bliss, from the darkness she’s falling into.

It’s an admirable quest, but one she may not be able to accomplish any time soon.

But her appearance on A Moment of Bliss isn’t about that, it’s about Nikki’s victory last week in the Fatal Four Way to challenge Bayley for the WWE Smackdown Women’s Championship at Clash of Champions.

Alexa will try to congratulate her, but Nikki will try to talk to her like a friend and something will be said that’ll set Alexa off.

While it won’t surprise us that they’ll have a match, what would be interesting is if Nikki is willing to put her number one contender status on the line.

To be fair, Nikki was ripe for a pin after Alexa his with a Sister Abigail and then walked off, leaving the match.

We could even see a Triple Threat or another Fatal Four Way for the WWE Smackdown Women’s Championship at Clash of Champions.

The WWE loves gimmick matches, and this would be right up their alley.
