SmackDown Five-Point Preview: Sept. 12, 2014
Can Jericho & Reigns return the favor?
Tuesday night on WWE Main Event, two huge matches were announced for WWE Night of Champions as Chris Jericho will battle Randy Orton and Roman Reigns will take on his former Shield “brother” Seth Rollins. But days before these heated rivals face off, they will collide tonight in a big tag team showdown when Y2J joins forces with the black-clad Superstar against The Viper & “The Architect.”
Tune in at 8/7 CT on Syfy to see if The Ayatollah of Rock ’n’ Rolla and the powerhouse Reigns can recover from the collective beatdowns they received on Raw to deliver their own knockout strikes in SmackDown’s main event.
The World’s Strongest Man muscles up to The Super Athlete
On Sept. 21 at WWE Night of Champions, The World’s Strongest Man will collide with The Super Athlete in a battle of super powers. Tonight on SmackDown, the WWE Universe will get a preview of this colossal showdown when Mark Henry meets Rusev in an International Arm Wrestling Contest.
Russian-American tensions are at an all-time high as Lana and Rusev continue to push their anti-American agenda onto the masses. Will this battle of the biceps explode into an all-out war? Find out tonight at 8/7 CT on Syfy!
Just how Uso Crazy can WWE’s tag team division get?
WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos will kick off SmackDown tonight in a huge 8-Man Tag Team Match when the soaring Samoans join forces with Big Show & Mark Henry against The Wyatt Family’s creepy followers Luke Harper & Erick Rowan and the bizarre duo of Gold & Stardust.
In recent weeks, Gold & Stardust have unleashed an aggressive new attitude that has left Jey Uso injured and the Samoan brothers vulnerable. It’s anybody’s guess what will happen when four of WWE’s strangest Superstars join forces to combat the world’s biggest tag team and the WWE Tag Team Champions.
Can the Diva of Tomorrow keep her focus?
Divas Champion Paige and AJ Lee have been engulfed in a peculiar tug-of-war all summer long as both Divas battle to be WWE’s leading lady. Monday night on Raw was no different as both battling beauties took turns kissing the butterfly-emblazoned title in another strange display of affection.
As The Diva of Tomorrow tries to navigate through The Black Widow’s web of mind games en route to WWE Night of Champions, she first must square-off with “Total Divas” star Summer Rae tonight on SmackDown. Will she be able to keep her eye on the ball, nine days before her Triple Threat title defense? Will AJ, or fellow No. 1 contender Nikki Bella for that matter, look to play a part in the outcome? Don’t miss this red-hot Divas showdown tonight!
The Miz’s not so photogenic “Moneymaker”
Monday on Raw, Dolph Ziggler revealed some awkward personal photos of The Miz that made us question whether he really was The Most Must-See Superstar in WWE. The Awesome One was understandably upset that The Showoff shared these private pics, but he will have an opportunity to deliver payback tonight on SmackDown when he teams with his stunt double “Damien Mizdow” against his WWE Night of Champions opponent and R-Truth.
That is, if the former WWE Champion can show his “moneymaker” again after Monday’s embarrassing big-screen display.
