SmackDown Five-Point Preview: Oct. 31, 2014
Dean Ambrose and Cesaro go “Trick or Street” Fighting
SmackDown celebrates the spookiest night of the year with a main event showdown between Dean Ambrose and Cesaro in a “Trick or Street Fight”! The Lunatic Fringe and Swiss Superman were supposed to face off on Raw, but the unstable Ambrose — still seething from Bray Wyatt’s Hell in a Cell horror show — attacked his opponent before the match could officially start.
Will the mentally unhinged Ambrose be able to keep his focus on his formidable foe or are his recent encounters with The Eater of Worlds still messing with his head? This Halloween-themed match is sure to have its share of spooky surprises, which makes us wonder if WWE’s creepiest Superstar will be lurking in the shadows? See for yourself tonight at 8/7 CT on Syfy!
Divas get dressed up
One could say that WWE’s Divas division is getting into the spirit of things tonight, when they engage each other in a huge Halloween Costume Battle Royal to determine the new No. 1 contender to AJ Lee’s Divas Championship.
With a coveted opportunity to battle for the butterfly-emblazoned title on the line, there’s no telling what will happen when the squared circle is filled with Divas in their favorite Halloween costumes! Don’t miss this spooktacular showdown tonight on SmackDown!
Why Mark Henry? Why?
In the middle of Raw’s WWE Tag Team Championship Match, Mark Henry shocked the WWE Universe when he destroyed Big Show with three World’s Strongest Slams and an earth-shattering splash. Tonight on SmackDown, the man behind The Hall of Pain will be a special guest on “Miz TV” with The Miz and Damien Mizdow.
What will the former World Heavyweight Champion have to say about his Raw betrayal? Plus, will The World’s Largest Athlete have a response for his former friend? Don’t miss a potentially explosive “Miz TV” tonight on SmackDown!
Can Ziggler stand up to Authority?
After witnessing an assumed interest on the part of Dolph Ziggler to join John Cena’s Survivor Series team against The Authority, Corporate Kane tried to dissuade The Showoff with an authoritative beating on Raw. The Intercontinental Champion was able to defeat WWE’s Director of Operations, but he could not avoid a post-match attack at the hands of the hellish Superstar and “Mr. Money in the Bank” Seth Rollins.
In case the bleached-blond Superstar didn’t get the message Monday night, he will once again faceoff with Kane in a rematch on SmackDown. Can the titleholder avoid another hellish drubbing at the hands of The Authority?
Can The Great Khali topple Rusev?
Since arriving in WWE, Rusev has paved a path of destruction. No one has been able to pin or submit The Super Athlete, including “The World’s Largest Athlete” Big Show and “The World’s Strongest Man” Mark Henry.
Tonight at 8/7 CT on Syfy, another giant will try to take down The Hero of the Russian Federation when Rusev squares off with the 7-foot-1, 347-pound Great Khali! Will Rusev’s dominance continue on SmackDown or has he met his match in The Punjabi Giant?
