Less than one week ago, WWE shocked the world with two incredible battle royals at the Royal Rumble, but it’s time to move forward. After this week’s Monday Night Raw, it’s time to head into Friday Night SmackDown with a card that has been built for pure entertainment. The episode is being dubbed “Super SmackDown” and it includes a title match, huge rematch, and a massive Fatal 4-Way tag team bout.
With the Royal Rumble officially in the past, WWE is moving full steam ahead into the “Road to WrestleMania” with many matches to build. A couple of big pay-per-view events will take place before WrestleMania in April, but the seeds are being planted for some great feuds.
The official website of WWE has released their preview for this week’s blue brand episode. Seeing the card for the event, it’s not hard to figure out why as the brand is going all out for a big show to end the month of January.
