SmackDown Five-Point Preview: April 11, 2014
Who will emerge victorious from Six-Man Tag Team chaos?
Tonight on SmackDown, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan teams up with WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos to battle the dangerous, vengeance-minded trio of Batista, Randy Orton & Kane in a blockbuster main event!
This Six-Man Tag Team Match certainly promises no shortage of bad blood, as The Animal, The Viper and WWE’s Director of Operations will all be looking to take The Beard down a notch, as evidenced by their overwhelming onslaught before Raw’s main event on Monday. But, it remains to be seen whether their thrust for payback will be enough against the dynamic trio of titleholders.
Tune in tonight to SmackDown on Syfy at 8/7 CT to find out! And be sure to watch the SmackDown Pre-Show at 7:30 ET for further analysis – exclusively on WWE Network!
Will there be fallout for The Shield?
Right now, it seems to be a good time to be a Hound of Justice.
A WrestleMania victory over Kane & The New Age Outlaws, the power to make major statements against Triple H and The Authority on both Raw and WWE Main Event, a victory over The Wyatt Family. All this has gained the black-clad trio not only impressive momentum, but the support and cheers of the WWE Universe.
But, can – and will – things continue to go well for The Shield now that they have planted themselves in The Authority’s crosshairs? Or will they learn, fairly quickly, that if you play The Game, The Game may just play you out of existence?
Is Bray Wyatt more inside John Cena’s head than ever?
Although Bray Wyatt fell to John Cena at The Show of Shows on Sunday, The Eater of Worlds and his followers, Luke Harper & Erick Rowan, roared back to defeat the Cenation leader, Sheamus & Intercontinental Champion Big E on Raw in an epic Six-Man Tag Team battle.
Cena ventures to SmackDown tonight to address the WWE Universe and, presumably, the mind games that continue to entangle him at the hands of The Wyatt Family. Has Wyatt driven Cena to the brink? If not, could tonight’s SmackDown be another opportunity for him to do so? No matter what goes down, Cena on SmackDown is must-see TV!
Will the newest Paul Heyman Guy make a ‘giant’ impact?
As if Cesaro channeling his inner Hulk Hogan to bodyslam the 400-plus-pound Big Show over the top rope to win The Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 30 wasn’t noteworthy enough, “The King of Swing” created even bigger shockwaves on Monday’s Raw by renouncing his Real American manager Zeb Colter and declaring himself a Paul Heyman Guy!
After beating his former Real American ally, Jack Swagger, on Raw by count-out, Cesaro turns his attention to a one-on-one match against the giant he defeated in Sunday’s Battle Royal: Big Show!
With Heyman by his side, can Cesaro make another major statement at the expense of The World’s Largest Athlete?
What might happen when Hulkamania runs wild on SmackDown?
Last week, “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan returned to SmackDown for the first time in more than a decade. After hosting WrestleMania 30 and presenting the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal Trophy to Cesaro on Raw, the legendary WWE Hall of Famer now returns to the best show on Friday night.
What will The Hulkster have to say tonight on SmackDown? Tune in to Syfy at 8/7 CT to find out! And be sure to tune in to the SmackDown Pre-Show tonight at 7:30 ET and Backstage Pass, immediately after SmackDown comes to a close – exclusively on WWE Network!
