Is the Sheamus vs. Randy Orton SmackDown main event too big a risk to take?

On the final stop before WWE Over the Limit, here are five key developments that the WWE Universe should keep an eye on during tonight's Friday Night SmackDown on Syfy.

First off, a tweet by John Laurinaitis’ Executive Administrator Eve on Monday has called for a SmackDown showdown between World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus and Randy Orton – just two days before The Great White and The Viper will engage Chris Jericho and Alberto Del Rio in a Fatal 4-Way World Title Match.

Keeping in mind that the impending pay-per-view contest has already ignited catastrophic disorder between its four participants on both Raw and SmackDown, is Eve tempting fate by unleashing two of its most brutal grapplers against each other so close to the whirlwind encounter? Has she considered what will happen if the one of them gets hurt? Both Superstars are clearly not 100 percent, with their arms under constantly attack in recent weeks. In addition to the risk to their bodies, it is entirely possible that the crafty Del Rio or Jericho will attempt another treacherous third party assault.
