WWE has announced that veteran Superstar Kane will be returning to SmackDown on Friday’s episode.

There’s no word yet on why The Big Red Mayor will be returning, but WWE is teasing a possible Royal Rumble appearance.

WWE has also announced that Sasha Banks and Lacey Evans will finally meet in the ring during Friday’s SmackDown on FOX episode.

Below is the updated line-up for Friday’s SmackDown from the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, NC, along with the new announcements on Kane and Banks vs. Evans:

* Robert Roode vs. Roman Reigns in a Tables Match

* John Morrison returns to the WWE ring vs. SmackDown Tag Team Champion Big E

* Sasha Banks vs. Lacey Evans

* Kane returns for a special appearance

Kane returns to SmackDown!

Former WWE Champion and current Mayor of Knox County, Tennessee, Kane makes his return to SmackDown this Friday for a special appearance.

The Big Red Machine has competed in more Royal Rumble matches and has more eliminations than any Superstar in WWE history, and with the match on the horizon, could Kane be ready to make history once again?

Lacey Evans and Sasha Banks to finally meet in the ring this Friday Night

After weeks of verbal attacks and plenty of flying fists, Lacey Evans and Sasha Banks will finally meet in the ring on Friday Night SmackDown.

Last week the two Superstars appeared headed for an in-ring clash, but with The Boss off recording her album, The Sassy Southern Belle was left frustrated without an opponent to release her wrath on. SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley was quick to offer her taunts and reveled in Evans’ despair. As a result, Evans charged up the ramp setting up a backstage collision that saw both competitors land vicious blows.

Will The Boss prove that she is indeed still at the head of SmackDown, or will Evans snag arguably the biggest win of her WWE career by besting The Blueprint?

Find out when the two collide this Friday Night at 8/7 C on FOX.

Stay tuned for updates on Friday’s show.
