*** PREVIEW ***
WHAT WILL JOHN CENA HAVE TO SAY ABOUT RANDY ORTON’S REINSTATEMENT IN THE RUMBLE?
On RAW this Monday, WWE owner Chip Butty announced that due to threatened boycotts of the Royal Rumble PPV from the WWE Universe and WWE sponsors, Randy Orton was to be reinstated into the Royal Rumble in nine days time. Under strict orders, Orton will be allowed to compete in Cleveland, Ohio, but only in the Royal Rumble match and under no circumstances must he have contact with John Cena unless it is in the Rumble itself. The word is that John Cena is unhappy over the decision to allow Randy Orton to compete and he plans to voice his concerns over the unstable Orton’s inclusion this week on SMACKDOWN. What will John Cena have to say about the return of the Viper in the Royal Rumble match?
HOW WILL CM PUNK REACT TO THE KILLSWITCH FROM LAST WEEK?
After a quick count from World Champion, CM Punk, last week on SMACKDOWN, Christian was defeated by John Cena in the main event. However, the after-match shenanigans overshadowed the defeat as first Punk hit the GTS on Christian before the Number 1 contender recovered to give Punk a taste of his own medicine with a Killswitch. As the tensions rise between Punk and Christian, what will tonight’s episode of SMACKDOWN bring us? With both men confident of victory at the Royal Rumble, they will be looking to gain some kind of advantage over their opponent tonight – whether that be mental or physical!
WILL BIG SHOW EXPLAIN HIS ACTIONS TOWARDS KOFI KINGSTON?
After two weeks of shocking developments between the former friends, Big Show and Kofi Kingston, will we hear further explanation tonight from Big Show over why he has turned on his friend? After both men competed in the Vengeance World Championship match, Show has since smashed Kingston with a TV monitor and followed that up last week with chair shots to Kofi who he felt had disrespected him. With Show desperate to regain the World Championship he held for four minutes last month and Kofi desperate for his first taste of World Championship gold, this feud appears to be reaching boiling point as the two men battle it out to prove their title credentials. Will Big Show have words for Kofi Kingston tonight?
INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP ON THE LINE!
Despite his sights being set on the World Championship of late, Matt Hardy was forced by SMACKDOWN General Manager Michael Cole to compete in a Number 1 contender match last week – with a shot for the Intercontinental Championship up for grabs. With his Rumble place in jeopardy from Cole, Hardy stepped up to the plate and defeated Cody Rhodes and this week, with his Rumble spot safe, he goes one on one with the Mexican Aristocrat Alberto Del Rio for the Intercontinental Title. Hardy has been overheard this week declaring that he intends to go all out tonight and win the title so that it strengthens his claims to be in the World Championship picture. Will Michael Cole see it that way? And can Matt Hardy defeat Alberto Del Rio with the Mexican in a hot streak since his arrival in the WWE?
