Nick Aldis, the General Manager of “WWE SmackDown,” is taking precautionary measures following the chaos that unfolded backstage after the Wyatt Sicks made their debut on Monday at the end of “WWE Raw.” The incident resulted in multiple stars and backstage officials being attacked by the group. In a video posted on WWE’s X account, Aldis announced a women’s triple threat match for the show, featuring Bianca Belair, Chelsea Green, and Michin, with the winner earning a spot in the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match.

Aldis also addressed the fans attending “SmackDown” at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois, asking them to be patient due to the increased security presence at the venue. “If you are coming to the Allstate tonight, please be patient with us,” Aldis said. “We are sold out, we are very grateful to you for that, but we also have extra security on hand, given the events of Monday night. Very unfortunate situation. Not going to happen on my watch.”

The Wyatt Sicks, consisting of Uncle Howdy, Nikki Cross, Dexter Lumis, Erick Rowan, and Joe Gacy, made their official debut following the main event of “Raw,” where Jey Uso advanced in a Money in the Bank qualifier. The group’s arrival caused injuries to multiple people backstage and in the gorilla position. Chad Gable, the leader of the Alpha Academy, was prominently featured on camera moments before Uncle Howdy’s appearance. As a result of the attack, Gable was removed from a Money in the Bank qualifier match. Reports indicate that others were seen in the darkness and fog that engulfed the gorilla position, including Paul “Triple H” Levesque, “Raw” General Manager Adam Pearce, William Regal, and WWE producers Shane Helms and TJ Wilson. According to various sources, the Wyatt Sicks faction is not assigned to either the red or blue brand within WWE, suggesting that they could potentially appear on any episode of “SmackDown” in the future.
