Welcome to Wrestling Inc.’s live coverage of “WWE SmackDown” on November 11, 2022, live from Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana!
Undisputed tag team champions, The Usos will put their titles on the line in a high-stakes match against New Day’s Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods. New Day currently holds the honor of being the longest reigning WWE Tag Team Champion in history at 483 days, but their record is on the line as The Usos have held the belts for 481 days so far. Will The Usos make history tonight, or will New Day win the titles again?
A new number one contender for Ronda Rousey’s “SmackDown” Women’s Championship will be determined, as Liv Morgan, Sonya Deville, Raquel Rodriguez, Lacey Evans, Shotzi and Xia Li face off in a six-pack challenge. Rousey defeated Liv Morgan at Extreme Rules last month to become the new titleholder, and since then, who has to be reckoned with. Who will she face next?
Additionally, the “SmackDown” World Cup tournament kicks off tonight, as Shinsuke Nakamura takes on Santos Escobar in a first-round match. The winner of the tournament will receive a shot at the GUNTHER Intercontinental Championship and will also feature competitors from around the world such as Butch, Rey Mysterio, Jinder Mahal, Sami Zayn, Braun Strowman, and Ricochet. While Nakamura already picked up a victory over Escobar in a tag team fight a few weeks ago, can he do it again tonight and get one step closer to a future title?
We are live ! Michael Cole and Wade Barrett welcome the audience home as The Usos head to the ring. The new day follows.
