SmackDown Five-Point Preview: Aug. 22, 2014
Can RVD avoid The Viper’s strike?
After being defeated by Roman Reigns at SummerSlam and finding himself on the losing side of a Six-Man Tag Team Match on Raw, Randy Orton will look to evoke his venomous side tonight on SmackDown when he slithers into the squared circle against Rob Van Dam.
With the intense Orton no doubt obsessing about his loss to Reigns at The Biggest Part of the Summer, will The Viper be able to sink his fangs into the innovative RVD? Find out tonight when these two former WWE Champions faceoff in a huge head-on collision!
Will Rollins Stomp out Swagger?
Tuesday night on WWE Main Event – exclusively on WWE Network – Jack Swagger and Seth Rollins were involved in an intense confrontation after The Architect was caught making some disparaging remarks about The Real American. As a result, the former Money in the Bank Ladder Match winner and the current Mr. Money in the Bank will settle their differences inside the ring tonight at 8/7 CT on Syfy!
Will the Superstar behind “We the People” make his new foe tap out to the Patriot Lock or will Rollins once again stomp out his competition?
Where in the world is Dean Ambrose?
Monday night on Raw, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins continued their summer-long war as they battled in a Falls Count Anywhere Match, chosen by the WWE Universe on the WWE App. The cruel contest proved to be the breaking point for these two heated rivals as Mr. Money in the Bank Curb Stomped the unstable Ambrose right through a pile of cinder blocks.
WWE.com reported earlier this week that the unstable Ambrose refused medical treatment following Raw and is now missing. With WWE COO Triple H telling Michael Cole, “we will probably never see or hear from Dean Ambrose again,” in an exclusive WWE.com interview, the question remains, where is the volatile Superstar and is he, in fact, gone for good? Don’t miss SmackDown tonight to see if the unstable grappler resurfaces or, at least, if there are any updates with his still developing situation.
Can Paige keep her sights set on Natalya?
Paige turned the tables on AJ Lee at SummerSlam, winning back the Divas Championship from her “frenemy.” However, the 22-year-old titleholder found herself entangled in The Black Widow’s web of retribution on Raw when she lost a non-title match to Natalya following her sly rival’s skipping distraction.
Tonight on SmackDown, the British beauty will again face The Queen of Harts. Will AJ show up tonight to disrupt The Diva of Tomorrow? Don’t miss SmackDown on Syfy at 8/7 CT to find out!
Will Stardust & Goldust have Luke Harper & Erick Rowan seeing stars?
Stardust & Goldust picked up a huge non-title victory over WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos on Raw. Now, the bizarre brotherhood has an opportunity to further elevate their star status within the WWE Universe when they face the frightening pair of Luke Harper & Erick Rowan on SmackDown.
Don’t miss SmackDown tonight at 8/7 CT on Syfy to see if a victory is written in the stars for WWE’s cosmic duo.
