August 5, 2015
Can The Big Dog reign supreme over The Super Athlete?
Tonight on SmackDown, Roman Reigns squares off against Rusev in a huge main event showdown. What carnage will occur when two of WWE’s most powerful Superstars collide in the middle of the squared circle?
Plus, with both competitors entangled in their own personal drama — The Big Dog with Bray Wyatt and The Bulgarian Brute with his former flame Lana — can they keep their focus in the ring on their Thursday night fight? Don’t miss this explosive encounter tonight at 8/7 C on Syfy to find out!
The Prime Time Player even the odds
Despite currently holding the WWE Tag Team Championship, The Prime Time Players continue to find themselves outnumbered by The New Day. Tonight at 8/7 C on Syfy, however, Titus O’Neil & Darren Young will be anything but outnumbered when they join forces with Mark Henry in a big Six-Man Tag Team Match against Big E, Xavier Woods & Kofi Kingston.
With competition heating up for the right to challenge for the WWE Tag Titles, the outspoken former titleholders will have an opportunity to make a big statement on SmackDown. Can the power of positivity elevate The New Day to victory, or will the million-dollar duo and their World’s Strongest tag team partner out muscle their opponents?
The Revolution continues
Team Bella, Team B.A.D. and PaigeCharlotteBecky have raised the bar in the Divas division, competing in hard-hitting and fiercely competitive contests week in and week out.
Tonight’s SmackDown will be no different when Charlotte battles Team B.A.D. member Naomi in a must-see Divas battle. While Charlotte describes herself as a “genetically superior athlete,” the ultra-athletic Naomi will put that claim to the test. Will the former NXT Women’s Champion show Naomi how to “do it with flair” in her SmackDown singles debut? Don’t miss any of the action, tonight at 8/7 C on Syfy.
A match fit for a prince?
Stardust has seemed frighteningly sinister over recent weeks, targeting “The Man That Gravity Forgot” Neville, as well as engaging in a war of words with “Arrow” star Stephen Amell on social media. “The Prince of Dark Matter” has been calling for a “hero,” and this Monday on Raw, he will get one when his arrow-slinging, social media rival confronts the strange Superstar in person. But before his nemesis arrives on Raw, WWE’s cosmic Superstar must first get past Zack Ryder tonight on SmackDown.
Can the ultimate Broski play the role of hero on Thursday’s hottest show? Or will the villainous Stardust continue his evil ways? See what WWE’s strange Superstar has in store for “Long Island Iced-Z” and the rest of the WWE Universe tonight on SmackDown.
Will The Wyatt Family look for revenge?
On Monday night, Roman Reigns joined forces with Randy Orton and his “brother-in-arms” Dean Ambrose to topple The Wyatt Family and Sheamus in a huge Six-Man main event clash. Despite the impressive victory, The Big Dog likely hasn’t seen the last of Bray Wyatt.
We know that the powerhouse Superstar will be in action against Rusev tonight on SmackDown, but will we see The Eater of Worlds and Luke Harper make their creepy presence felt? Will the ominous Wyatts look to make the next move in their conflict with Reigns? If so, what will we see from the creepy pair?
