SmackDown Five-Point Preview: Oct. 29, 2015
Why must you watch the special Halloween edition of SmackDown, tonight at 8/7 C on Syfy? (Cue haunting laughter.) WWE.com has some ideas.
Who will Wyatt choose to haunt tonight?
If you’re looking for a Thursday night fright, what could be scarier than The New Face of Fear? Well … how about a New Face of Fear capable of making The Brothers of Destruction disappear in a mere 24 hours?
Apparently, this grueling nightmare has become a reality, after Bray Wyatt and The Wyatt Family took the very souls of The Undertaker and Demon Kane at Hell in a Cell and on Raw, respectively. Will The Eater of Words offer further explanation having to do with the apparent demise of these legendary Superstars? Your guess is as good as ours. Does he has plans to take additional competitors into the darkness? Who can say for sure? In any event, as Wyatt speaks of his own resurrection, the scourge that he has unleashed may just be beginning and could play out tonight of SmackDown.
Can Reigns continue to roll over Owens?
Ambition can be a scary thing. And arguably no Superstar has been as ambitious lately as Roman Reigns. On Raw, just 24 hours after overcoming Bray Wyatt in a demonic Hell in a Cell Match at Sunday’s WWE Network event, Reigns qualified and then defeated Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens, United States Champion Alberto Del Rio and Dolph Ziggler in a Fatal 4-Way Match. The epic win made him the No. 1 contender to Seth Rollins’ WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
Tonight, The Big Dog will battle against Kevin Owens for the second time this week. The prizefighter has been on quite the roll of late, successfully defending his Intercontinental Title against Ryback at Hell in a Cell. With a showdown between two determined Superstars, there is no telling whose victory will haunt his opponent at the end of the night.
What painful tricks are in store for Ziggler and Miz?
Need another reason to watch tonight’s special Halloween edition of SmackDown? How about the words “Trick or Treat Street Fight”? Yes, Dolph Ziggler will look to wake the dead against “The A-Lister” Miz in painful fashion, in this knockdown, drag-out slugfest with no rules and where everything the Superstars can get your hands on is fair game.
Will Miz be forced to wear the steel ring steps as his Halloween costume this year? Will The A-lister hit Ziggler so hard with a Kendo stick that The Showoff is left seeing ghosts and goblins? Find out tonight on SmackDown.
Which team will survive the terror?
If a Trick or Trick Street Fight doesn’t send chills down your spine, maybe a shocking Tag Team Terror Four Corners Match will, as The Dudley Boyz will face The Lucha Dragons, The Ascension and Sheamus & King Barrett on SmackDown.
Bubba-Ray and D-Von came up short in their quest for the WWE Tag Team Titles at Hell in a Cell. While they will certainly be looking to get back into the hunt, there is no doubt that their pay-per-view loss has attracted other hungry tag teams like zombies to a shopping mall buffet. Who will emerge from the horror in one piece? Find out tonight at 8/7 C.
Is Natalya out for vengeance?
Several weeks ago, Natalya was mysteriously attacked on SmackDown. Now, The Queen of Harts will rise from the metaphorical ashes to go one-on-one with Paige.
While The Diva of Tomorrow has stated on numerous occasions that she was not the one who carried out the assault, it remains to be seen if Natalya believes her. If not, she could be stepping through the ropes tonight, looking to make the proverbial ghost story out of her opponent.
Don’t miss the special Halloween edition of SmackDown, tonight at 8/7 C on Syfy.
