Final four to battle in tag team clash
Before Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Kevin Owens and Alberto Del Rio all vie to become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion at Survivor Series this Sunday, they have to survive a potentially chaotic night on SmackDown.
After triumphing in the quarterfinals on Raw, the final four competitors in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament will be guests on “Miz TV” as the most must-see talk show in WWE makes its return to Thursday’s hottest show. With the stakes at an all-time high for each Superstar, what bedlam will unfold when The Miz inevitably attempts to stir the pot? But that’s not all, as The Big Dog will team with The Lunatic Fringe against the Intercontinental and United States Champions in a huge tag team clash. Which determined Superstars will head into the semifinals (and potentially the final) of WWE’s historic tournament riding a wave of momentum? Plus, with the potential of a brother vs. brother or champion vs. champion final showdown just days away, can these tournament tag team pairs successfully work together? Find out tonight at 8/7 C on Syfy.
What’s The Wyatt Family’s message?
In a shocking display of power, Bray Wyatt and The Wyatt Family turned The Undertaker and Kane’s Druids against them Monday night on Raw. Despite the impressive display of control, The Brothers of Destruction managed to overcome the sheep-masked followers with some forceful resistance.
Tonight on SmackDown, The New Face of Fear and his frightening family have a message for their Survivor Series opponents. What that message entails, is anybody’s guess. Does The Eater of Worlds have another supernatural surprise up his sleeve? Plus, will The Man of 1,000 Truths reveal which two Wyatt Family members will step into the ring against The Deadman and The Demon this Sunday?
Can Charlotte stay focused?
Charlotte and Paige’s already bitter rivalry reached new levels of animosity on Raw when The Diva of Tomorrow insulted the memory of the Divas Champion’s late brother during their Divas Championship contract signing. The comment sent the titleholder into a rage, sparking a heated brawl between the former friends.
With just a few days to let Paige’s controversial comments settle, will the Divas Champion be able to focus on her SmackDown opponent, Brie Bella? Plus, with their highly anticipated Divas Championship Match set for this Sunday at Survivor Series, will the No. 1 contender look to further get under the skin of the titleholder?
The Miz pulls double duty
The Miz has a busy night ahead of him as he not only will be hosting a potentially frenzied “Miz TV” featuring the final four contenders in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament, but he will also be in a match against Cesaro. Monday night on Raw, The Swiss Superman competed in an instant classic against Roman Reigns, ultimately falling to The Big Dog after a tremendous battle in the quarterfinals of WWE’s historic tournament.
Will The King of Swing be able to bounce back from his hard-fought tournament loss? And will The Awesome One be able to handle his hosting duties in addition to a battle with one of WWE’s most physically commanding athletes?
Can Neville & The Dudleys avoid The Cosmic Wasteland?
The Dudley Boyz defeated The Ascension Monday night on Raw, but can they, along with Neville, topple the combined forces of Stardust, Viktor & Konnor? The Prince of Dark Matter and The Man That Gravity Forgot are no strangers to one another, and they will take their storied rivalry to Thursday’s hottest show. Will the exciting trio of Neville, Bubba Ray & D-Von Dudley introduce their cosmic opponents to Dudleyville? Or will they fall to The Cosmic Wasteland?
