AJ Style
AJ Styles will be going to WrestleMania as WWE Champion

After a momentous Fastlane pay-per-view that saw AJ Styles retain his WWE Championship to set up a WrestleMania dream match against Shinsuke Nakamura as well as Randy Orton become a Grand Slam Champion and Asuka challenge the blue brand's Women's Champion, tonight's SmackDown is surely a must-see as we're on the home straight on the road to WrestleMania.

As always in WWE, though, there are a lot of unanswered questions. Will they be answered on tonight's show? Here's a preview of what you can expect to see when tuning in tonight.

#5 Shane McMahon to make a WrestleMania announcement

Shane O M
Shane O Mac has something big in store

Shane McMahon was spotted on last night's Raw, but it was his actions on Sunday at Fastlane that shocked the WWE Universe when SmackDown Live's Commissioner prevented Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn from capturing the WWE Championship.

Shane O Mac was arguably provoked, though, as Kevin Owens had seemingly unintentionally superkicked the SmackDown Live Commissioner. The pair does have a storied history though, including a hellacious Hell In A Cell Match that saw McMahon jump off the structure and straight through a table.

It was no surprise, then, that the Commissioner showed no remorse for his actions on Talking Smack, with KO taking to Twitter immediately after Fastlane. have confirmed that Shane McMahon will make an announcement regarding WrestleMania on tonight's show, hinting that it may directly involve the "Yep!" Movement, or rather cryptically, that it may be a complete surprise for the WWE Universe.

With rumors speculating that Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn's WrestleMania involvement may purely be in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, this will be very interesting indeed. Could WWE swerve us all?
