SmackDown Five Point Preview: May 10, 2013

Will Jericho’s “Highlight Reel” poke a stick at the beast?

Ryback elects to face John Cena in a Last Man Standing Match at Extreme Rules: Raw, May 6, 2013

The stage is set for the WWE Title Match between John Cena and Ryback at Extreme Rules.

On Monday, Ryback continued to create controversy, surrounding his upcoming  Last Man Standing WWE Title Match against John Cena. But what will happen when “The Human Wrecking Ball” steps into the pinnacle of WWE talk show controversy on Chris Jericho’s “ Highlight Reel?”

When someone confronts Ryabck on the mic, bad things tend to happen — just ask  The Miz or WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley. Could Y2J experience a similar result once he starts asking the tough questions? Or could the six-time World Champion close the lid on feeding time?

Can The Shield finish off Bryan?

The Shield delivered a destructive message to Kane, before revealing that they had attacked Daniel Bryan: SmackDown, May 3, 2013

The Shield make sure to send Team Hell No a painful message.

Last week on SmackDown, WWE Tag Team Champion Daniel Bryan was taken out by “The Hounds of Justice,” as Dean Ambrose and his treacherous cohorts went on to decimate his partner Kane.

Now, the submission specialist is coming back for more, engaging in a one-on-one showdown with Ambrose. Can he possibly withstand the dominating wrath of his treacherous adversaries? And if The Big Red Monster is at his side, could Team Hell No’s potential for devastation be enough to counter the numbers advantage of The Shield?

Who will rise above as the Triple Threat Ladder Match approaches?

Alberto Del Rio vs. Dolph Ziggler: Raw, May 6, 2013

Chaos erupts ringside during the match between Alberto Del Rio and World Champion Dolph Ziggler.

In preparation for the World Heavyweight Title Triple Threat Ladder Match at Extreme Rules,  Jack Swagger used the treacherous rungs to decimate Alberto Del Rio, World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler and pretty much everyone else in sight. This continued a painful game of one-upmanship between the three Superstars since the title showdown was announced.

Will “The Real American” grab addition momentum tonight? Or will Del Rio and The Showoff snatch it away from him in brutal fashion?

Is Big Show destined to feel The Viper’s bite?

Randy Orton vs. Damien Sandow: Raw, May 6, 2013

Randy Orton goes one-on-one with Damien Sandow on Raw.

Since their partnership blew up in their faces at WrestleMania, tensions have been running high between Big Show and Randy Orton. On Raw, The World’s Largest Athlete laid out The Viper with the KO Punch. 

As Big Show prepares to take on Tons of Funk’s Tensai, will WWE’s Apex Predator look to dish out some serpentine vengeance? And if he does, will the giant squash the snake?

Will it be holding strong or Celtic pride?

Sheamus vs. Wade Barrett: Raw, May 6, 2013

The two international Superstars face off in a one-on-one contest on Raw.

In recent weeks Mark Henry and Sheamus have unleashed major damage on each other. In the latest instance, The World’s Strongest Man answered the Irish Superstar’s recent humiliation in both a  Tug of War and Arm Wrestling Contest, by whipping The Celtic Warrior viciously with a belt on Raw.

Following a WWE.com announcement earlier in the week that the two Superstars will battle in a Strap Match at Extreme Rules, brace yourself for what will come next between them. By the way, the word is out that Henry has something big planned for tonight.
