1. Will the Rock layeth the SmackDown?

This Friday in his home city of Miami, The People’s Champion will step inside a SmackDown ring for the first time in 10 years. It’s been a decade, but The Rock returns to “his” show!

When WWE looked to debut the blue brand back in 1999, they wisely chose to mold their newest incarnation in the image of The Most Electrifying Man in All of Entertainment by naming the show after his explosive catchphrase, “Layeth the SmackDown!”

Now, The Rock will return to the blue brand just one week before SmackDown celebrates its 700th episode and 16 days before battling WWE Champion CM Punk for the WWE Title at the Royal Rumble. (MATCH PREVIEW)

Will The Straight Edge Champion look to destroy his legendary No. 1 contender prior to their pay-per-view showdown? Might The Shield — who WWE Chairman Mr. McMahon still suspects to be in cahoots with Punk and who proved to be the difference in the champion’s Tables, Ladders & Chairs Title Match against Ryback on Raw (WATCH | PHOTOS) — dare to attempt to ambush the seven-time WWE Champion?

Or will other SmackDown competitors, such as World Heavyweight Champion Big Show, Sheamus or Randy Orton, have something to say to The Great One?
