WWE SmackDown Card - Roman Reigns celebration graphic

As we head into Clash at The Castle we have one more episode of WWE SmackDown to go before the action kicks off in Wales. This week’s show was taped last week so we have almost the entire lineup announced in advance for one of the first times in a long time. Let’s take a look then at whats on tap for the WWE SmackDown card.

WWE SmackDown Card for September 2, 2022

  • Roman Reigns celebrates two years as champion
  • Ronda Rousey Judgement
  • Karrion Kross in-ring debut
  • Viking Rules: New Day vs Viking Raiders
  • Maximum Male Models debut match against Hit Row
  • Butch vs Ludwig Kaiser

Roman Reigns Celebration

Ahead of his match with Drew McIntyre at Clast at The Castle, Roman Reigns will celebrate his two-year anniversary as champion. This will likely give us some more excellent Sami Zayn/Bloodline interactions and should draw out Drew McIntyre. Whether McIntyre gets laid out again or takes another avenue remains to be seen.

Ronda Rousey Judgement

Ever since losing her SmackDown Women’s Championship match at SummerSlam “the baddest woman on the planet” has been running amok in the WWE. Her actions have almost upstaged champion Liv Morgan and her match with Shayna Baszler as she has been the focal point of the women’s division. Rousey will this week face judgment over her recent actions, particularly because she refused to wait for her suspension to lift.
