We do know a few things that are expected to happen this Friday when SmackDown takes over the Ford Center.

As announced by the Ford Center, earlier today, another huge name will appear at SmackDown in Evansville this Friday. This is a household name! She's an Olympian, a former UFC Champion, has been in several movies, and now she's coming to Evansville. It's none other than Ronda Rousey!

Ronda Rousey is a former Raw and SmackDown Women's Champion, as well as the winner of the 2022 Women's Royal Rumble. She was also a part of the first-ever women's match to main event a WrestleMania, along with Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair.

Right now, Ronda and her friend (and fellow WWE SuperStar) Shanya Bazler have been dominating the women of SmackDown. Do they have their eyes set on tag team gold or do they have something else in mind for their Road to WrestleMania? We'll get more of an idea on that this Friday at SmackDown.

There are still some tickets available to the show at the Ford Center Box Office and Ticketmaster. You don't want to miss Friday Night SmackDown in Evansville, trust me!
