The following matches and events are advertised on the WWE website for tonight’s WWE Smackdown Live television show.
-The road to WrestleMania begins for AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura.
-Kofi Kingston vs. Zack Ryder vs. Rusev vs. Jinder Mahal in a four-way for a shot at the U.S. Championship.
-What’s next for the Smackdown Tag Champions Jimmy and Jey Uso?
-How will Ronda Rousey’s arrival in WWE affect the Smackdown women’s division.
Powell’s POV: They seemed to indicate on Raw that Royal Rumble winner Shinsuke Nakamura will open the show, but there are plenty of times when plans change between Raw and the time Smackdown goes on the air. Join Jake Barnett for live coverage of Smackdown as the show airs at 7CT/8ET. I will be by after the show with my members’ exclusive audio review and on Wednesday with the WWE Smackdown Hit List.
