Local advertisements in the Washington DC area have started to air promoting the 1000th episode of Smackdown Live that will occur on October 16th. Advertised matches for the show include:
– AJ Styles (C) vs Samoa Joe for the WWE Championship
– Daniel Bryan vs The Miz
– Jeff Hardy vs Randy Orton
Also advertised to appear is The Undertaker. What is interesting about this announcement is it would indicate that AJ Styles will retain the WWE Championship at Summerslam in his match with Samoa Joe. Also, the even bigger news is the advertising of Daniel Bryan. This could indicate that Bryan has finally re-signed with WWE.
