WWE Smackdown Preview: Shane Responds to Styles, Orton/Bray, more
— WWE.com Smackdown preview for tonight:
How will Shane McMahon respond to AJ Styles’ outburst?
Over the past few weeks, The Phenomenal One has been visibly frustrated at the “hoops he has had to jump through” to try to get into the WWE Championship Match at WrestleMania, but did he go too far by disrespecting his boss so blatantly? Will there be any ramifications for his actions? Is the outspoken Superstar just getting warmed up? And perhaps most importantly, how will Shane McMahon respond?
Is Bray Wyatt ready to face Randy Orton at WrestleMania?
It seems The Viper has been methodically plotting against Bray Wyatt for months from within and has probably come to understand the innerworkings of his adversary’s mind better than anyone. And with Wyatt noticeably absent from SmackDown LIVE last week, has he lost the battle before it even started?
How will Cena and Nikki respond to the A-List assault?
It will be interesting to see what Miz and Maryse have to say this week, as the A-List couple is never at a loss for words. But will Cena and Nikki seek retribution? You want some, WWE Universe? Come get some!
What exactly is the status of Dean Ambrose?
Will Ambrose be well enough (certainly not mentally) to seek payback on The Lone Wolf?
Who will challenge American Alpha at WrestleMania?
While The Usos have set their sights on their long-standing foes, you never know who will challenge Chad Gable & Jason Jordan with only three SmackDown LIVEs left before WWE steps onto The Grandest Stage of Them All — or if American Alpha will even have the titles come WrestleMania.
Who will throw their hat in the ring for the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal?
Seeing as how The Road to WrestleMania is an opportunity for Superstars to attempt to propel themselves into main-event status, who will join Apollo Crews and Mojo Railey as Blue Brand entries in the colossal contest?
