Feed him Authority
Ryback is on the hunt for the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal trophy, but before he can fulfill his appetite at The Showcase of Immortals, he first needs to get past Kane on SmackDown. Will WWE’s Director of Operations prove to be an unpassable roadblock on The Big Guy’s Road to WrestleMania? Or will The Human Wrecking Ball crash through his authoritative adversary?
Don’t miss SmackDown tonight at 8/7 C on Syfy, when two of WWE’s biggest Superstars square off in a huge one-on-one showdown.
Who will grab the Intercontinental Title next?
It was announced this week on WWE.com that Dean Ambrose and Luke Harper will join R-Truth in challenging Bad News Barrett for the Intercontinental Championship in a multi-Superstar Ladder Match at WretleMania 31. But how many more competitors will add their names to this epic contest on Thursday’s hottest show? With Dolph Ziggler running off with the British brawler’s title on Raw, will we see The Showoff add his name to the mix?
Don’t miss a moment of the action on The Road to WrestleMania when WWE’s show-stealing Superstar kicks off the second-longest running episodic TV show in history! And don’t blink or you might miss another Superstar try to take the prestigious prize out of the hands of the bleached-blond Superstar. It all starts at 8/7 C on Syfy.
Who do you believe in?
Roman Reigns is just more than three weeks away from not only competing in the biggest match of his career in the main event at WrestleMania 31, but also battling against the toughest opponent of his life in Brock Lesnar. If you think The Big Dog is scared or intimidated, you must not have been watching him recently. Since winning the 2015 Royal Rumble Match, the powerhouse Superstar has been on an unstoppable roll, running through anyone and anything, trying to get in his way on The Road to WrestleMania. Did you see Reigns nearly Spear Seth Rollins in half on Raw?!
Speaking of Raw, Paul Heyman did what he does best Monday, shooting from the hip as he reminded the WWE Universe that his client will not only be at WrestleMania 31, but anywhere he pleases before The Show of Shows. But when will we see The Beast Incarnate in the flesh? And what will Reigns have to say in response to the outspoken advocate’s prediction on Raw that he will be conquered by Lesnar on The Grandest Stage of them All?
The Black Widow’s back! Now what?
AJ Lee made her long-awaited return on Raw, interrupting The Bella Twins’ two-on-one attack on Paige. The loner Diva turned some heads Monday night when she came to the aid of her onetime “frenemy” Paige. Despite their past differences, the former Divas Champion said after her shocking return that an enemy of her enemy is her friend. So can we officially put The Black Widow and The Diva of Tomorrow in the “friends” category?
Either way, with AJ back in the thick of the Divas division, The Road to WrestleMania is sure to heat up. Don’t miss the feisty Diva step back inside the squared circle against Brie Bella on SmackDown in a red-hot Divas showdown. Will we see AJ’s new “friend” Paige show her support at ringside? Plus, how will the opinionated Diva’s return effect WWE’s ultra-competitive Divas division?
Who else will we see enter the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal?
There has been no shortage of Superstars throwing their names into the ring to be involved in the second annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Already, nine competitors have been added to the over-the-top Battle Royal at WrestleMania 31, including former World Heavyweight Champions Jack Swagger and The Miz. That’s not all, as John Cena even tried to join the fight for the coveted Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal trophy before being denied by Stephanie McMahon.
With The Show of Shows rapidly approaching, and time running out to grab a spot on The Grandest Stage of Them All, will we see any more names added to this historic contest on SmackDown? Tune in tonight at 8/7 C on Syfy to find out.
