How to stream WWE SmackDown Live

As we draw closer to SummerSlam, WWE rivalries will inevitably continue to heat up on this week’s SmackDown live stream. In case you missed last week: here’s the TL;DR: Kofi Kingston mucked around in old history with Randy Orton before taking down Samoa Joe, Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens slammed Shane McMahon’s smug face into the ground, and Dolph Ziggler crashed Miz TV to blast Shawn Michaels while The Miz looked on with glee. Finn Balor also resurrected his old feud with Bray Wyatt’s sunny new persona by challenging him to a match at SummerSlam with “The Fiend,” which sounds like a terrific opportunity for Balor to pull out The Demon!

This week on the SmackDown live stream, you can expect to see The New Day face off against Elias and Drew McIntyre in an epic tag team match and the legendary Trish Stratus make an appearance on Jerry Lawler’s King’s Court (no doubt to hype her upcoming appearance at SummerSlam). Sadly we may not see ex-Universal titleholder Balor take on Ziggler as WWE previously planned. Balor tweeted a smiling photo from his hospital bed on June 28 captioned “Summerslam,” which likely means the Irishman won’t be cleared for the ring in time for tonight’s festivities. Still, it’s possible he could draw some sort of miraculous recovery from his abs of steel and appear, so we’ll keep our fingers crossed.
