Tonight, World Wrestling Entertainment celebrates Christmas Eve with a taped Smackdown from Allstate Arena in Chicago, IL.

Here’s a spoiler free preview of tonight’s episode:

  • Charlotte Flair defends the Smackdown Women’s Championship against Toni Storm
  • 12 Days of Christmas Gauntlet Match: Sami Zayn vs. Sheamus vs. Erik vs. Ivar vs. Drew Gulak vs. Mansoor vs. Cesaro vs. Angel vs. Humberto vs. Ricochet vs. Jinder Mahal vs. Shanky

WWE Friday Night Smackdown airs tonight at 7pm CT on FOX (check local listings).

Stinger’s View: Holiday episodes of WWE television are rarely any good, but thankfully they taped this one and the wrestlers are getting to spend Christmas with their families. The winner of the Gauntlet match will wrestle Shinsuke Nakamura for the Intercontinental Championship at Day 1.
