SmackDown Five-Point Preview: Feb. 12, 2015
How will Bryan respond to Reigns’ Raw Spear?
The gloves appear to be off between Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan following their explosive encounter to conclude Raw. Goodwill between two of WWE’s top Superstars appears to have been thrown out the window after The Big Dog Speared The Beard Monday night.
The leader of the “Yes!” Movement was incensed after his powerhouse tag team partner tagged himself in and picked up the victory in their 5-on-2 Handicap Match, but it was the 2015 Royal Rumble Match winner’s Spear that left Bryan reeling. Tonight at 8/7C on Syfy, Reigns and Bryan will meet face-to-face and the question is: What’s next for these WWE Fastlane opponents? Will the “Yes!” Man strike back or will cooler heads prevail as WWE takes the Fastlane to WrestleMania?
Does The Authority have another Fastlane roadblock planned?
The Road to WrestleMania is an action-packed joy ride for WWE fans, but it can be downright difficult for some Superstars. This year is no different, as The Authority seems hell-bent on making Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns’ ride to The Show of Shows a rough one.
Monday night on Raw, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon — like sharks sensing blood in the water — noticed that tensions were rising between The Beard and The Big Dog and immediately introduced another roadblock in the form of a 5-on-2 Handicap Match. With WWE Fastlane rapidly approaching, will the powers that be throw another obstacle in front of the WrestleMania hopefuls? And if so, how will the embattled Superstars react when faced with another hurdle?
Sometimes the truth hurts
There is no telling what the enigmatic Bray Wyatt will say or do, which is why, it’s impossible to predict what will happen tonight when The Man of 1,000 Truths clashes with R-Truth on SmackDown.
Monday night on Raw, The Eater of Worlds decimated Dolph Ziggler. Add to that the fact that, over the last couple weeks, he has delivered a number of mysterious messages that has led to rampant speculation as to who will be Wyatt’s next target. See what Wyatt has in store for WWE’s rapping Superstar when they faceoff tonight at 8/7 CT on Syfy. Plus, be sure to tune in to see if the creepy Superstar has another sinister soliloquy planned for the WWE Universe.
Can Paige show that she is the real “Total Diva”?
Before Paige challenges Nikki Bella for the Divas Championship at WWE Fastlane on Feb. 22, she will battle Summer Rae, tonight on SmackDown. It will be a clash of past and present “Total Divas” stars when The Diva of Tomorrow faces the woman she replaced in Season 3 of the hit E! reality show!
Plus, after the former Divas Champion defeated Brie Bella on Raw, will The Bella Twins look to exact revenge? And if so, what mean mind games will The Bellas try to unleash on the British beauty? Tune in tonight at 8/7 CT on Syfy to see what Divas drama unfolds!
Has The Exotic Express broken down beyond repair?
Last week was not good for The Exotic Express. The Rosebuds not only dropped Adam Rose on two separate occasions when he went to do his pre-match trust fall, but the leader of The Exotic Express also lost twice to Fandango. Tonight on SmackDown, the moody Superstar will again be in action against his fleet-footed foe, but will he dare attempt another trust fall?
Also, with serious trust issues between him and his Rosebuds affecting his in-ring performance, can Rose get The Exotic Express back on track when he squares off against Fandango?
