SmackDown Five-Point Preview: June 13, 2014
Will the Hounds get their justice?
While it appears Seth Rollins has truly seized an opportunity by aligning himself with WWE COO Triple H, the former Architect of The Shield has also made two very dangerous enemies in his former “brothers,” Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns.
Following Rollins’ devastating betrayal of his fellow Hounds of Justice last Monday, Ambrose and Reigns had some fightin’ words for their ex-cohort and The Game on this week’s Raw. And with John Cena helping them dispose of The Wyatt Family roadblock, it will be interesting to see if they come to SmackDown ready to turn those words into action. Tune in tonight at 8/7 CT on Syfy to see.
For further insight, don’t miss SmackDown Pre-Show, beginning at 7:30 ET, exclusively on WWE Network.
Who else might qualify for the WWE World Heavyweight Title Ladder Match?
With The Authority controversially stripping Daniel Bryan of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, Superstars will battle in a high-stakes Ladder Match at Money in the Bank for the vacant title. But who will take the remaining spots in that match?
Alberto Del Rio, Randy Orton, Sheamus and Cesaro have already punched their tickets to what may be the biggest Ladder Match of all time. With the clock ticking to the Money in the Bank pay-per-view on June 29, it will be interesting to see if the next elite combatant will join their ranks tonight on SmackDown.
Can Ireland top Switzerland in a pre-World Cup, pre-Money in the Bank tilt?
Speaking of the combatants in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match, two of those Money in the Bank foes will square off on SmackDown tonight, as United States Champion Sheamus goes one-on-one with Cesaro.
With both Superstars hailing from Europe and the international appeal of the 2014 FIFA World Cup mere days away, it’s a battle of global proportions tonight on Syfy! Who will get the key victory?
Will Summer strike back?
The rivalry between Fandango’s current and former dance partners, Layla and Summer Rae, was kicked up to a whole new level of this week. After Summer doused Layla with milk and flour on Raw, the British-born Diva launched a WWE Main Event counter strike, covering the blonde beauty in a combination of kitty litter and milk before literally rubbing her adversary’s face in it.
After such “cattiness,” will Summer look for payback tonight on SmackDown?
Which newcomer might make the biggest splash tonight: Adam Rose, Rusev or Bo Dallas?
A handful of recently debuted Superstars have made some major noise in WWE. From the “hero of the Russian Federation,” Rusev, to everyone’s favorite party guru, Adam Rose, from the beautiful boogieing Emma to “The Inspirational” Bo Dallas, there is no shortage of young, talented Superstars and Divas who are ready to make their mark.
Is tonight’s SmackDown a chance for one of these up-and-comers to take the next step? If so, who’s the best bet? Tune in at 8/7 CT on Syfy to find out, and be sure to tune in to the SmackDown Pre-Show tonight at 7:30 ET – exclusively on WWE Network!
