The Wyatt Family reaches the big time
If you haven’t noticed lately — and quite frankly, how could you not — Luke Harper & Erick Rowan have had a huge problem with the only combination of WWE Superstars bigger than them: Mark Henry & Big Show.
Tonight at 8/7 CT, the fierce followers of The New Face of Fear will step into the ring with the colossal combination on SmackDown on Syfy. We just hope the ring has been reinforced.
The fear is iron-clad
Monday on Raw, Roman Reigns opted to take up the mantle for the missing-in-action Dean Ambrose, batting both Seth Rollins and Kane in a heated showdown that ended with one exploding cinder block and the unbridled rage of the iron-clad warrior. So how do you follow that up?
Well for starters, tonight on SmackDown, Reigns is scheduled to go one-on-one with the creepy Bray Wyatt. In the past, The Shield and The Wyatt Family engaged in many epic battles. And while it’s true that Reigns now flies solo, a singles match between these two extremely volatile forces could prove to be even more exciting than its six-man predecessors.
Money looks for payback?
Although it looked as if Seth Rollins was trying to get Rob Van Dam counted out on Tuesday’s WWE Main Event, the quick-thinking of RVD turned his opponent’s world completely upside down and allowed him to seize the count-victory for himself.
Tonight, Mr. Money in the Bank journeys to SmackDown to claim his vengeance when the two engage in a heated rematch on Syfy. Can Rollins assert his Authority against the high-flying former WWE Champion?
Do Real Americans ever give up?
Tonight at 8/7 CT, Jack Swagger will set out to make Rusev experience the full power of the good old U.S.A., when the two Superstars square off in a painful Submission Match. But how will he fair against the dangerous Hero of the Russian Federation, who has never submitted in his entire time in WWE?
Reaching for the stars
On Monday, after Gold & Stardust failed to acquire the WWE Tag Team Championships from The Usos, they unleashed a vicious post-match assault on the Samoan warriors.
Clearly the bizarre duo wants the titles at any cost, a fact that Jimmy Uso will no doubt have on his mind when he goes one-on-one with Stardust tonight at 8/7 CT on SmackDown.
