The Hounds of Justice were cleary not on the same page earlier this week on Raw, causing them to lose for a second time to The Wyatt Family. In the latest point of friction between the Hounds, Seth Rollins walked out on Dean Ambrose and Roman Regins, leaving them at an unsurmountable numbers disadvantage against Bray Wyatt and his followers.
Tonight on SmackDown, Ambrose, Regins and Rollins will meet in the middle of the ring for what is being called a Shield Summit. Will the black-clad trio find a way to work through their issues and stay unified? Or, has The Shield been cracked once and for all? Find out at 8/7 CT on Syfy!
2.) Who should most fear the return of The World's Largest Athlete?
As announced on Raw Backstage Pass, exclusively on WWE Network, Big Show will make his triumphant return to SmackDown tonight! After recovering from the brutal steel chair beat down he endured at the hands of Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble, we predict that The World’s Largest Athlete will be highly motivated and ready for action.
But who might find themselves in Big Show’s crosshairs? Is any Superstar safe from the wrath and devastation of the angry giant?
3.) How far has Bryan crawled under Triple H and The Authority's skin?
WWE COO Triple H, Director of Operations Kane and WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton all got involved in Raw’s main event between Daniel Bryan and Batista Monday night, culminating in the bearded wonder enduring a Batista Bomb from The Animal and a nasty Pedigree from The Game.
Although the COO has made it clear that he has no interest in Bryan’s proposed WrestleMania 30 match, his actions on Monday suggest that the WWE fan favorite is getting to him on some level.
Will The Beard look to avenge the interference in his match and subsequent beat down? The WWE World Heavyweight Champion, No. 1 contender, Director of Operations and COO could all be on his list. Who, if anyone, might Bryan target tonight on SmackDown?
4.) How will The Usos commence a "New Age" for the WWE Tag Team Titles?
This Monday on Raw, The Usos defeated The New Age Outlaws to claim the WWE Tag Team Championships for their first reign. With their exciting in-ring style and lineage as part of the legendary Samoan Anoa’i family, the first-time champions are some of WWE’s most sensational Superstars.
After defeating Los Matadores on WWE Main Event – when an injury to Road Dogg prevented The New Age Outlaws from competing in their scheduled rematch against the new titleholders on the first-ever live edition of the show on WWE Network – Jimmy & Jey will now take on the always-dangerous team of Ryback & Curtis Axel tonight on SmackDown. Will the Samoan Superstars continue their string of electrifying performances?
5.) Will Sheamus look to get payback on Christian?
Moments after Sheamus defeated Christian on Raw, Captain Charisma viciously attacked his adversary during a backstage interview.
The Celtic Warrior is never one to back away from an affront or a fight, so he will likely look to get vengeance on what could be the most dangerous version of Christian the WWE Universe has ever seen.
Before The Celtic Warrior can focus on that, however, he must turn his attention to Alberto Del Rio when the two long-standing rivals go one-on-one tonight on SmackDown. What will happen if Sheamus decides to settle the score with Christian – who is already scheduled to battle Dolph Ziggler – as well? Tune in to SmackDown on Syfy tonight at 8/7 CT!
