WWE has announced the first match for next week’s episode of SmackDown LIVE on the USA Network, which will serve as the 1000th episode of the show. Rey Mysterio is slated to battle Shinsuke Nakamura in a world cup qualifying match.
It appears that Rey Mysterio will be wrestling twice on this show as WWE sent out an email advertising him in a tag team match as well.
The former WWE Champion is slated to team with WWE Champion AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan against Randy Orton, The Miz, and Nakamura. This will likely be a dark match. It’s also a change from the previously advertised match that saw AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan against Samoa Joe and The Miz.
