– WWE announced this week that Mysterio will square off with United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura in a WWE World Cup Qualifying Match on next Tuesday’s historic 1000th episode of SmackDown LIVE in Washington D.C.
Mysterio is advertised to wrestle twice on the show as WWE revealed tonight in an email to those in the D.C. area that he will also compete in a tag team match.
In updated advertising for the event, Mysterio is slated to team with WWE Champion AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan against Randy Orton, The Miz, and Nakamura. A match pitting Styles and Bryan against Samoa Joe and Miz was previously advertised.
WWE also noted in the email that Flair will go one-on-one with SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch (after previously advertising Flair, Asuka, and Naomi vs. Lynch and The IIconics). This is presumably a dark match since they’re scheduled to face off at Evolution in a Last Woman Standing Match.
– Following this week’s episode of SmackDown LIVE, WWE.com announced that Edge would return to host a special edition of “The Cutting Edge” next Tuesday as part of SmackDown’s 1000th episode. It’s quite possible that the WWE Hall of Famer’s appearance has already been nixed since WWE.com is no longer advertising the talk show segment as taking place. The announcement now redirects to the “Shows” page.
Edge is not otherwise advertised for SmackDown 1000 by WWE.com or the official website of the Capital One Arena. WWE.com posted their preview for the show tonight and there’s no mention of Edge.
