WWE SmackDown 29/3/2013 Preview: Rock returns to SmackDown
Hershey, Pennsylvania plays host to one of the pivotal SmackDowns ahead of Wrestlemania 29 with the ‘Brahma Bull’ The Rock set to return to the blue brand. There’s plenty to look forward on this show with Wrestlemania 29 just 9 days away.
The Rock returns to his show
Following the explosive discussion on RAW, the Rock will return to his show SmackDown. The Rock sent a clear message to John Cena on RAW and is likely to add more to it verbally on SmackDown. This is likely to be his last appearance ahead of Wrestlemania, so expect something special from the ‘Great One’.
Mark Henry vs Ryback: Weightlifting challenge
WWE had broken the story earlier this week that several bench press records were shattered during the competition between Mark Henry and Ryback. What else can you expect when two behemoths try to better each other! Tune into Smackdown to find out what exactly happened and who won the challenge.
Jack Swagger in action
After breaking Ricardo Rodriguez’s ankle on RAW, Jack Swagger has a huge challenge in his hands as he takes on The Great Khali in a singles match. Will Swagger send another message to his Wrestlemania opponent Alberto Del Rio by winning this match or will it prove detrimental to his own chances?
Wade Barrett vs Chris Jericho
The Intercontinental Champion ‘Wade Barrett’ will face off against Chris Jericho in a singles match on SmackDown. Wade has been having a torrid week with a low blow from Triple H and a loss against The Miz on RAW. Barrett will try to change the tide by winning his match against Chris Jericho who was his mentor during NXT season 1. It will be interesting to see whether Barrett and Jericho’s opponents at Wrestlemania – The Miz and Fandango respectively, have a role to play in effecting the outcome of this match.
Mixed tag-team action
Earlier this week on RAW, AJ attacked Kaitlyn as she was talking ill about her to Kane and Daniel Bryan. This has led to a match on this week’s SmackDown as Dolph Ziggler and AJ will take on Daniel Bryan and Kaitlyn in a mixed tag-team match. With plenty of history among Daniel Bryan, AJ and Kaitlyn, it will be interesting to see how this match pans out.
