Tonight’s landmark 900th episode of SmackDown from Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania will feature involvement from Raw Superstars coming off the appearances of SmackDown Superstars on last night’s Raw.
According to F4WOnline.com, Raw Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Nia Jax, Bayley, and Alicia Fox are all backstage at tonight’s show at the Mohegan Sun Arena. They are likely there for a confrontation with the women of SmackDown for their 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Women’s Elimination Match this Sunday.
Taz, Tommy Dreamer and Bubba Ray Dudley are also backstage at SmackDown, PWInsider.com has confirmed. Dudley sent out this tweet earlier today.

According PWInsider.com, Dreamer and Dudley were interviewed for WWE Network material earlier this afternoon. This may also be why Taz is at the taping.
With this being the 900th episode of SmackDown, The Undertaker and Edge are the promoted guest stars for the show. Undertaker’s appearance will likely tease a new storyline. Edge, meanwhile, will speak to SmackDown‘s entire 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Men’s Elimination Match team: SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon, who agreed to fill the final spot on the team last week; WWE World Champion AJ Styles; Dean Ambrose; New Wyatt Family members Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt; as well as team mascot James Ellsworth.
