WWE has shared the following Quick Hits preview points on WWE.com ahead of tonight’s episode of SmackDown Live:

R-Truth To Issue Another United States Championship Open Challenge

Asking himself “What would John Cena do?,” R-Truth took on both Rey Mysterio and Andrade when they answered his United States Championship Open Challenge this past week. With the two rivals focused on each other, Truth was able to roll up Mysterio and retain his title.

Tonight, Truth will issue another open challenge for his star-spangled title. Who will step up and answer the call?

Is Kevin Owens looking to gain more momentum heading into WWE Fastlane?

Mr. McMahon shocked the WWE Universe last Tuesday when he replaced Kofi Kingston in the WWE Championship Match at WWE Fastlane with the returning Kevin Owens. KO teamed up with Kingston later that night, pinning WWE Champion Daniel Bryan with a thunderous Stunner.

With just five nights remaining before their title showdown, what else might KO do to get the upper hand on Bryan?

Will The Hardy Boyz continue their quest to become the greatest tag team?

Last Tuesday, Matt & Jeff Hardy reunited as a tag team for the first time since 2017, defeating The Bar in a thrilling battle. In a WWE.com exclusive interview following their victory, The Hardy Boyz said that they joined forces once again to prove to everyone that they are the greatest tag team in time and space.

Will The Hardy Boyz continue on this journey? Who might their quest lead them to next? Find out on SmackDown LIVE, tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network!
