SmackDown Five-Point Preview: March 28, 2014

Does Wyatt have a ‘giant’ problem?

John Cena vs. Luke Harper: Raw, March 24, 2014

John Cena goes one-on-one with The Wyatt Family's Luke Harper.

The Grandest Stage of Them All is a mere nine days away and every action has massive implications when The Road to WrestleMania winds through Boston’s TD Garden tonight on SmackDown on Syfy at 8/7 CT!

In a main event of epic proportions, The World’s Largest Athlete, Big Show – the perceived favorite to win the historic Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at The Show of Shows – will go one-on-one with the haunting Bray Wyatt. After the twisted actions The Wyatt Family reigned down upon Wyatt’s WrestleMania 30 opponent, John Cena, on Monday’s Raw, it is possible that The Eater of Worlds is not only in Cena’s head, but has positioned himself inside the giant head of The World’s Largest Athlete as well? Or is Wyatt the one with a gigantic problem tonight on SmackDown?

Batista returns to SmackDown tonight! Deal with it!

Stephanie McMahon, Batista and Randy Orton argue about the WrestleMania Triple Threat Match: Raw, March 24, 2014

Stephanie McMahon strikes Batista before leaving The Animal and WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton alone in the ring.

The Animal made major waves on Monday’s Raw, insulting Stephanie McMahon – and getting slapped for it – and spearing WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton. Tonight, the big, bad, but much-maligned Batista is scheduled to open SmackDown and address the WWE Universe and The Authority!

The No. 1 contender to The Viper’s title has made it clear he came back to WWE for one reason: to become WWE World Heavyweight Champion. With a Triple Threat World Title Match at WrestleMania 30 so close, what will the acid-tongued Animal have to say on the best show on Friday night?

Who else should fear a united Shield?

Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins  vs. The Real Americans: Raw, March 24, 2014

The Shield look to take care of business in the ring against The Real Americans and then learn about their WrestleMania 30 opponents from Kane.

After decimating The Real Americans on Raw, The Shield appears stronger and more cohesive than ever – as The Hounds of Justice continue to reassert their dominance and avenge their brutal ambush one week ago on SmackDown.

With a Six-Man Tag Team Match set for WrestleMania 30 against their primary antagonists – Director of Operations Kane & The New Age Outlaws – The Shield will also be in action tonight.

United States Champion Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins will face Jinder Mahal & Drew McIntyre of 3MB, two Superstars who were also involved in last week’s attack. It will be interesting to see how Mahal & McIntyre will hope to contend with the unique brand of unified Shield justice, as the Hounds set their sights on The Showcase of The Immortals. In addition, will The Shield’s Big Red adversary throw additional roadblocks in their path?

Who will ‘battle’ for momentum on The Road to WrestleMania?

Big Show vs. Titus O'Neil: Raw, March 24, 2014

Big Show locks up with Titus O"Neil less than two weeks before they compete in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 30.

With 26 Superstars announced for WrestleMania 30’s much-anticipated Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, SmackDown tonight will give Superstars a chance to impress in hopes of getting a bid or for already announced entrants to jockey for position as WrestleMania 30 looms. Several of the Battle Royal combatants will be in action tonight, as Sin Cara takes on Damien Sandow, Goldust battles Fandango and Mark Henry goes head-to-head with The Miz.

In addition, members of two teams from WrestleMania 30’s WWE Tag Team Championship Fatal 4-Way will be in action, as WWE Tag Team Champion Jimmy Uso takes on Jack Swagger. Who will pick up precious momentum with The Showcase of the Immortals just nine days away?

Can AJ and Tamina team together?

Naomi  vs. AJ Lee: Raw, March 24, 2014

Naomi faces off with Divas Champion AJ Lee until Vickie Guerrero makes a major announcement regarding the Divas Title for WrestleMania 30.

With more than a dozen title challengers on the horizon in the Vickie Guerrero Divas Championship Invitational at WrestleMania 30, plus her recent disharmony with her bodyguard, Tamina Snuka, it appears hard times might have fallen upon Divas Champion AJ Lee.

Tonight on SmackDown, the longest-reigning Divas Champion of all-time has a chance to get back on track when she and Tamina team up to face “Total Divas” stars The Bella Twins. As the 2014 Show of Shows nears, will AJ manage to once again cement her fragile friendship with her only ally in the WrestleMania match?
