Four days after Evolution left The Shield in shambles on Raw and Dean Ambrose lost his United States Championship to Sheamus, The Hounds of Justice venture to SmackDown to tackle a series of grueling one-on-one matches announced Wednesday by Triple H in his weekly WWE.com exclusive interview with Michael Cole.
While WWE’s COO said the main event-caliber contests of Roman Reigns vs. Mark Henry, Seth Rollins vs. Batista, and Dean Ambrose vs. Sheamus for U.S. Title will give The Shield a chance to“redeem themselves,” it appears he is still getting retribution for Evolution’s loss at Extreme Rules and The Shield’s ongoing disobedience of The Authority.
Will The Hounds of Justice get “redemption” or is there another rough night in store? Can Ambrose recapture the illustrious U.S. Title? One thing is for sure: the black-clad trio will indeed to need to adapt or perish.

2.) Can Cena rise above the buzzards?
On WWE Main Event on Tuesday, John Cena vowed to never give up in his struggle against the twisted mind games of Bray Wyatt. Tonight on SmackDown, the Cenation leader gets a chance to deliver this message physically when he teams up with WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos to battle The Wyatt Family in SmackDown’s blockbuster main event!
As the rivalry between Cena and Wyatt grows ever more bitter, will tonight be an opportunity for the 14-time World Champion to strike back against “The Eater of Worlds”? Or, will he again encounter the venomous kiss of Sister Abigail?
3.) Is more bad news on the way for RVD & Big E ??
Four days after Rob Van Dam was beat down during his match against Cesaro and Big E failed to regain his Intercontinental Title in a rematch with Bad News Barrett, the reeling pair will team up to attempt to get some payback on their respective European rivals.
Both Cesaro and Barrett are currently riding some of the greatest momentum of their WWE careers. Facing a high-flying offensive dynamo and a massive, muscled powerhouse, will their success continue?
4.) Will 3MB have a better Nueve de Mayo?
Sure, crashing Los Matadores’ Cinco de Mayo celebration on Raw may not have worked out very well for 3MB & Hornswoggle. Tonight, however, could be a very different story, as Heath Slater, Drew McIntyre & ‘Swoggle team up to battle Los Matadores & El Torito.
After a loss in the first ever “WeeLC Match” at Extreme Rules and Monday’s forgettable – and painful – events, 3MB will surely look to make a statement tonight on SmackDown. But can the rockin’ trio put Extreme Rules, Raw and many other unpleasant memories in their tour bus’ rear window with a big time victory?
5.) Can The Wildcat bite back against The Super Athlete ??
Kofi Kingston’s loss to Rusev on Raw was brutal and shocking, as The Bulgarian Brute showed again that he is one of the most impressive and dominant Superstars to debut in recent memory.
Tonight on SmackDown on Syfy at 8/7 CT, The Wildcat goes for round two against Rusev. Will his aerial expertise and explosive offense guide him to victory? Or, will The Super Athlete again ground the highflier and make Russian President Vladimir Putin proud?
