Thursday’s SmackDown from Kansas City will feature a gauntlet match between all six of Bad News Barrett’s Intercontinental Title contenders. Roman Reigns is on the docket. Sting came to Randy Orton’s aid Monday Night on Raw to deal with The Authority, but what will be the repercussions? Monday it was Nikki Bella vs. AJ Lee, tonight it will be Brie vs. Paige, but you can bet Nikki and AJ will both be close by. Also, WWE will hold its first-ever “6-Being Interspecies Match” as Los Matadores and El Torito take on Tyson Kidd, Cesaro and Nattie.
