WWE Smackdown Spoilers for 06/23/2016: Seth Rollins vs. Sami Zayn, Cesaro vs. Del Rio
The spoilers are in for tonight’s WWE Smackdown, with not only the fallout from Money In the Bank 2016, but the first show since the shocking suspension of Roman Reigns.
In the main event, Seth Rollins battles Sami Zayn, albeit not without first addressing the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match at Battleground. Rollins still referred to the match as a three-way, which seems to suggest Roman Reigns is still being kept in the match, and will still participate once his suspension is lifted. Of course, by the time it’s lifted, there won’t be any television shows left to promote his appearance prior to the pay-per-view, but I wouldn’t necessarily put it past WWE to address the suspension in storyline over the next few weeks. If nothing else, we’re at a point where the undercard is strong enough to help bolster the main event scene, which is evidenced by tonight’s how, as A.J. Styles has an impressive showing against Jimmy Uso, Apollo Crews faces Sheamus in a rematch from Money In the Bank, and Cesaro takes on Alberto Del Rio in a hard-hitting match-up. If you want to know what happens before tonight’s airing, you can check out the full spoilers below via The Wrestling Observer/F4WOnline:
