SmackDown Five-Point Preview: Feb. 5, 2015
Will there be an A-list altercation on “Miz TV”?
Get your popcorn and soda ready, because the most must-see “Miz TV” episode to date — and that’s saying a lot — will kick off SmackDown tonight at 8/7c. Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan will both be guests on The Awesome One’s always-tumultuous talk show, as they get ready for their historic matchup at WWE Fastlane on Feb 22.
Despite The Big Dog lending a helping hand to The Beard in his contest against Seth Rollins on Raw, make no mistake, both these men are clearly prepared to put it all on the line for the chance to main event WrestleMania 31. With so much at stake between two of WWE’s most competitive Superstars, don’t be surprised if the action starts three weeks early, especially since The Miz will most certainly do his best to stir the pot. Plus, what part if any, will Damien Mizdow play in his new role as Miz’s personal assistant? In other words, you’re not going to want to miss a second of “Miz TV.”
The Authority shakes WWE to the core. Will there be a SmackDown aftershock?
Monday night, WWE COO Triple H and Stephanie McMahon made a decision that could forever change the future of WWE. As a result, Roman Reigns’ coveted spot in the main event at WrestleMania 31 will be on the line at WWE Fastlane when The Big Dog faces Daniel Bryan.
With the WWE Universe still feeling the effects of Monday night’s epic decision, there is sure to be plenty of fallout. How will Seth Rollins react following his Raw defeat to The Beard? Plus, will there be any consequences following Reigns’ Raw interference that caused The Authority’s plans to go awry? Now that The Road to WrestleMania 31 has taken a dramatic turn, tune in to SmackDown to see how the rest of the WWE locker room responds!
Now it’s war
Monday night, The Bella Twins (with the help of Alicia Fox) embarrassed Paige when they covered the British beauty with tanning spray. In a post-Raw WWE.com exclusive, The Diva of Tomorrow said that if Nikki and Brie were going to start a war, she was going to finish it.
The former Divas Champion will get a chance for some redemption on at least one of the Divas involved in the cruel act, when she faces Alicia Fox on SmackDown. What does Paige have in store for her foxy foe? Also, will The Bellas follow up their callous actions on Raw with another mean stunt? Tune in tonight at 8/7c on Syfy to find out.
Can Gold & Stardust get on the same galaxy?
Is there trouble in Gold & Stardust’s cosmic paradise? The former WWE Tag Team Champions recent in-ring woes seem to be getting under the skin of the gold-painted pair, who haven’t been seeing eye-to-eye as of late.
To make matters worse, after their Raw loss to The Ascension, Stardust snapped on Goldust after The Bizarre One called his younger brother “Cody.” Is Stardust on the verge of a galactic meltdown? The bizarre duo will need to figure things out soon as they are set to clash with Dolph Ziggler & Ryback in a huge tag team contest.
Rowan’s road to redemption?
Following a backstage talk with John Cena, Erick Rowan appeared ready to topple Rusev on Raw, but it was The Super Athlete’s brutal pre-match attack that left the sheep-masked Superstar laid out.
The monstrous Rowan will get another opportunity to take down the United States Champion when the two 300-pound-plus Superstars collide tonight on Syfy. Can the former Wyatt Family member slow down Rusev’s road to WWE Fastlane? Will John Cena look to engage his WWE Fastlane opponent in another heated encounter? Don’t miss any of the action on SmackDown.
