WWE Smackdown preview: Bo Dallas to fight R-Truth in a rematch from Monday Night Raw
Randy Orton to explain why he marmalised Roman Reigns
Last Updated: 01/08/14 5:28pm
Bo no longer has his “O”.
The inspirational Mr Dallas had tasted win after win after win since shifting from NXT to WWE’s main roster, but his undefeated streak came to shuddering halt against R-Truth on Monday’s Raw.
So, after a few days licking his wounds, Dallas will be out for revenge when he faces The Suntan Superman in a rematch on Smackdown.
Can he get back on the victory trail?
The odds looked stacked against Dean Ambrose, meanwhile, with The Lunatic Fringe primed to tackle Seth Rollins and Kane in a two-on-one handicap match on the blue brand.
Plus, Chris Jericho will meet Erick Rowan in a clash with huge SummerSlam implications, as if Y2J wins, Rowan will be banned from ringside for his duel with Bray Wyatt in Los Angeles.
Randy Orton has not yet been etched onto the SummerSlam card but gave the higher-ups a stark reminder of his capabilities by brutalising Roman Reigns on Raw.
The Viper will address that assault on Smackdown – but will Reigns be in the house to hear it?
With WWE’s official website also promising more dramatic developments in the Divas division, Smackdown will be well worth your attention.
