SmackDown Five-Point Preview: Oct. 3, 2014
Can WWE gold outshine the “moneymaker”?
Would you rather be a champion in WWE or mega movie star? You may get different answers from the two tag teams facing off tonight on SmackDown, as Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler teams with United States Champion Sheamus to take on WWE’s Most Must-See Superstar, The Miz, and his extremely dedicated stunt-double “Damien Mizdow.”
The Awesome One failed to recapture his prized title from The Showoff on Raw and his stand-in got his “moneymaker” kicked in by Sheamus. But these Hollywood hotshots will have an opportunity for revenge when they collide with their championship counterparts in a big tag team showdown.
Big Show to address Russian flag incident
Monday night on Raw, Big Show pulled down the Russian flag following an emotional confrontation with Rusev and Lana. As a result, WWE issued an apology on WWE.com to any Russian people that construed the incident as disrespect to their nation’s flag.
Tonight at 8/7 CT on Syfy, The World’s Largest Athlete will address his controversial actions in front of the WWE Universe. Will Big Show’s statement calm this growing international ordeal or have mounting tensions reached their boiling point?
See John Cena kick off SmackDown
John Cena likes to boast that you can’t see him, but the opposite rings true tonight as the Cenation leader opens up the best show on Friday night. What will the 15-time World Champion have to say when he arrives in Milwaukee for a volatile edition of SmackDown?
You can bet the spirited Superstar has plenty to get off his chest after butting heads with Dean Ambrose and falling victim to Seth Rollins’ calculated Curb Stomp Monday night on Raw. Tune in to Syfy at 8/7 CT to find out what Cena has in store for SmackDown!
Will we witness another high-flying display from The Bunny?
Adam Rose and his Rosebuds have had an impressive first year within the WWE Universe, but The Exotic Express’ Bunny could quite possibly be considered WWE’s Breakout Star of the Year in 2014. The Bunny has been hopping all over the team of Slater-Gator in recent weeks en route to becoming a full-fledged WWE Superstar.
With The Usos set to face off against Heath Slater and Titus O’Neil tonight on SmackDown, will we see the surprisingly skillful furry Superstar? Find out tonight at 8/7 CT on Syfy!
Can Paige top “Total Divas” star Naomi?
There have been plenty of fireworks on Season 3 of “Total Divas,” but WWE’s Divas division has had its own share of action-packed drama inside the ring. Tonight on SmackDown, two of WWE’s toughest female competitors will square off when Paige clashes with former Funkadactyl Naomi.
Can The Diva of Tomorrow reaffirm her place as one of the top contenders to AJ Lee’s butterfly-emblazoned title with a victory over her ultra-athletic opponent? Plus, will Divas Champion be in attendance to watch her former “frenemy” in action?
