Report: Major Stars To Be Absent From Friday's WWE SmackDown

Several major stars reportedly set to miss WWE SmackDown

WWE return to Toronto, Canada for the upcoming August 18 edition of SmackDown, but several major stars are reportedly set to miss the show.

Per a report from PWInsider, neither The Usos or Solo Sikoa are set for the show, and with Roman Reigns also set to be absent it seems like there’ll be a brief pause on the drama of The Bloodline, unless WWE have pre-taped content for the show.

All members of The Bloodline and former member Jey Uso were present for the August 11 edition of SmackDown, with Jey ‘quitting’ WWE after laying out Reigns, Solo, and Jimmy after Jimmy revealed why he betrayed his twin brother at SummerSlam.

With Jey Uso ‘gone’ from the company and Reigns never booked for the show, it would have just left Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa representing the fractured group.

The August 18 edition of SmackDown is set to feature Edge vs. Sheamus in a first time ever singles encounter, whilst Grayson Waller will host the Grayson Waller Effect with Rey Mysterio.
