SmackDown Five-Point Preview: March 14, 2014

How will Triple H respond to the “Yes!” Movement’s Raw occupation?

Daniel Bryan occupies Raw: Raw, March 10, 2014

Daniel Bryan brings the 'YES!' Movement to Raw in full force.

Instead of appearing for his  weekly exclusive interview with Michael Cole, Triple H sent an email revealing he will address Daniel Bryan and the “Yes!” Movement’s occupation of Raw tonight when The Game comes to SmackDown.

Check out must-see photos of Bryan’s Raw occupation

With his WrestleMania 30 match against The Beard finally set – including a monumental WWE World Heavyweight Championship stipulation hanging in the balance – WWE’s COO will likely have strong words for the irrepressible Superstar who has captured the hearts and minds of the WWE Universe. What will happen now that Bryan has changed the rules of The Game? Tune in to SmackDown on Syfy at 8/7 CT to find out!

And don’t miss further analysis on SmackDown Pre-Show, tonight at 7:30, exclusively on WWE Network.

Will Kane make a ‘giant’ statement in SmackDown main event?

Daniel Bryan & Big Show vs. Batista & Kane: SmackDown, March 7, 2014

Daniel Bryan & Big Show face Batista & Kane in the SmackDown main event.

After receiving a massive KO Punch from Big Show in tag team action last week on SmackDown, WWE Director of Operations Kane will look for retribution tonight when he goes one-on-one with The World’s Largest Athlete – a clash between two of WWE’s biggest, most decorated and most explosive Superstars.

Big Show will certainly look to continue his surging momentum following two huge tag team victories alongside Daniel Bryan in the past week. Since The Beard seems to be public enemy No. 1 for The Authority these days, will Kane have extra “corporate” motivation to drop the giant who knocked him out last week?

Who will a reunited Shield target?

Cody Rhodes & Goldust vs. Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins: Raw, March 10, 2014

Cody Rhodes & Goldust step inside the ring with The Shield's Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins.

After weeks of bickering, splintering and in-fighting – not to mention losing twice to The Wyatt Family – it appeared The Shield was on the verge of cracking. Following the Shield Summit last week on SmackDown, Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins worked together to overcome the Rhodes Brothers on Raw, and Dean Ambrose followed that on Tuesday with a successful defense of his United States Title against Mark Henry on WWE Main Event.

Now that The Hounds of Justice appear to be unified and back to their winning ways once more, that could spell trouble for other Superstars. Are The Hounds truly back in the hunt? And for whom might that be terrible news tonight on SmackDown?

Will there be new clarity or “Total” chaos in the Divas division?

The Bella Twins vs. AJ Lee & Tamina: Raw, March 10, 2014

The Bella Twins face the duo of Divas Champion AJ Lee & Tamina Snuka.

With WrestleMania 30 just around the corner and “Total Divas” returning to E! this Sunday, the Divas division appears to be in a major state of flux with perhaps more opportunity than ever before.

On Monday, The Bella Twins defeated AJ Lee & Tamina Snuka, with Nikki pinning the long-reigning Divas Champion. AJ was able to regroup – with Tamina’s assistance – for a successful title defense against Natalya the following night on WWE Main Event. Now tonight, Nikki will go head-to-head with Tamina on SmackDown.

Will Nikki pick up another huge win along The Road to WrestleMania? Or, will Tamina avenge her and AJ’s Monday night loss and give the “Total Divas” star a “reality” check?

Will Del Rio snap against Dolph Ziggler?

Dolph Ziggler vs. Alberto Del Rio: Raw, March 3, 2014

Aaron Paul accompanies Dolph Ziggler to the ring.

As the shadow of WrestleMania 30 looms, the enmity between Dolph Ziggler and Alberto Del Rio has steadily grown. From The Showoff’s March 3 win over Del Rio – with an assist from Aaron Paul – to Ziggler’s loss against Christian last week on SmackDown due to a distraction from The Mexican Aristocrat, there is clearly no love lost between these former World Champions.

With victories along The Road to WrestleMania being so precious, what will happen between these two talented, exciting, technical competitors when they go one-on-one tonight on SmackDown? Tune in to SmackDown on Syfy at 8/7 CT to find out!
