Many fans have speculated that Reigns could face Jimmy Uso at the event later this month, as the tension between Reigns and The Usos continues to escalate on WWE Friday Night SmackDown.

But Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reports that Rey Mysterio will challenge “The Head of the Table” at the pay-per-view.

This direction would follow up on the show-closing angle of the latest episode of WWE SmackDown.
