No Disqualifications, No Problems for The Showoff?

Dolph Ziggler vs. Batista: SmackDown, May 16, 2014

The Show Off clashes with The Animal inside the SmackDown ring.

Last week on SmackDown, a flagrant low blow got Batista disqualified in his contest against Dolph Ziggler, sending The Animal into a brutal post-match rampage that left The Showoff battered at ringside.

Tonight, Ziggler will look for retribution after demanding a No Disqualification rematch against the six-time World Champion. However, after Batista – and his Evolution allies, Randy Orton and WWE COO Triple H – found themselves upended at the hands of Seth Rollins and The Shield on Monday’s Raw, could Ziggler again become a target for a furious Animal’s frustrations on SmackDown?

Will Cena and Wyatt get involved in a “family friendly” tag battle?

John Cena vs. Luke Harper: Raw, May 19, 2014

John Cena squares off with The Wyatt Family's Luke Harper in the main event of Raw.

Tonight on SmackDown on Syfy, WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos take on Bray Wyatt’s monstrous followers, Erick Rowan & Luke Harper. With a mere two weeks until John Cena battles Wyatt in an emotionally charged Last Man Standing Match, this tag team match could escalate quickly if the WWE Payback adversaries make their presences felt.

After Cena suffered Wyatt’s devastating Sister Abigail on top of the stage on Monday’s Raw, he could be primed for another painful night on SmackDown if he indeed stands by Jimmy & Jey. Locked in a conflict with a leader who seemingly has the whole world in his hands, is it possible the 14-time World Champion might not even make it to the upcoming pay-per-view? And could the WWE Tag Team Champions also find themselves destroyed as collateral damage?

Do you Bo-lieve?

Bo Dallas debuts on SmackDown this Friday: Raw, May 19, 2014

Don't miss the debut of Bo Dallas on this Friday's SmackDown.

It’s been said that a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Tonight, inspirational, self-assured NXT Superstar Bo Dallas takes that metaphorical first step when he debuts on SmackDown.

Will the motivated – and motivating – Dallas make a splash like other recent debutantes Rusev, Adam Rose and Divas Champion Paige? Or, will the many “Bo-lievers” out there in the WWE Universe be disappointed?

If Bo Dallas can soar with the eagles remains to be seen. But, tonight on SmackDown, one thing is for sure: It’s "Bo-Time"!

Who will emerge in a topsy-turvy Divas division?

Nikki Bella vs. Natalya - with Special Guest Referee Eva Marie: SmackDown, May 16, 2014

Nikki Bella and Natalya compete in Divas action on SmackDown while Eva Marie oversees the match as Special Guest Referee.

Between new WWE Diva Paige capturing the Divas Championship, Alicia Fox apparently going slightly bonkers and the never-ending drama that seems to cling to cast of “Total Divas,” the Divas division has been turned upside down. Add to that, Summer Rae returning on Monday’s Raw to tongue-tango with Fandango before attacking the dancing Superstar’s new partner, Layla.

Just when it looks like there couldn’t be any more chaos in the Divas division, a major match is scheduled for tonight’s SmackDown: The Funkadactyls vs. Nikki Bella & Eva Marie. Will this tag team tilt provide clarity or another opportunity for the claws to come out? Find out on SmackDown tonight! And be sure to tune in to the SmackDown Pre-Show tonight at 7:30 ET – exclusively on WWE Network!
