SmackDown Five-Point Preview: Apr. 5, 2013
Has Ryback bitten off more than he can crew?
One week ago, Mark Henry dropped 225 pounds onto Ryback’s neck during a special SmackDown Bench Press Contest.
While the “Human Wrecking Ball” did find a way around SmackDown General Manager Booker T’s No Contact Clause to get some payback on The World’s Strongest Man, will he be 100 percent at The Showcase of the Immortals? And considering the challenge ahead of him, will his eyes prove bigger than his stomach tonight when he takes on Primo & Epico in a 2-on-1 Handicap Match?
Will the World Title No. 1 Contender ground Kofi?
On Raw, WrestleMania World Title No. 1 contender Jack Swagger and his compatriot Zeb Colter unleashed a massive assault on World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio.
Will the “Real American” be able to put the star-spangled icing on the cake against the high-flying Kofi Kingston tonight? In addition, will Del Rio seek retribution on route to his Show of Shows showdown?
What exactly do Team Rhodes Scholars and The Bellas have planned?
Damien Sandow, Cody Rhodes and Nikki & Brie Bella are scheduled to address the WWE Universe tonight. But four days after The Bella Twins overcame The Funkadactyls on Raw, what will they do to further tip momentum in their favor — two days before the highly anticipated faceoff in an Eight-Person Tag Team Match this Sunday?
What will happen when SmackDown has Axxess?
It has been reported that parts of the incredible fan event WrestleMania Axxess will air as part of tonight’s SmackDown. As the monumental event — giving the WWE Universe as inside look at the Superstars, Divas and all things WWE — heats up, what surprises will it add to the blue brand?
How will SmackDown kick The Road to WrestleMania into overdrive?
The wait is almost over from the WWE Universe, as the biggest Superstars in the squared circle prepare to step onto The Grandest Stage of Them All in an attempt to claim their place in immortality.
Standing in the way is tonight’s SmackDown. And while their conflicts will ultimately be decided in the ring this Sunday, there is still time for ambitious individuals – or dangerous groups like The Shield – to unleash major psychological warfare. Who will make a last ditch attempt to grab an advantage heading into The Showcase of the Immortals?
