The following matches and events are advertised on the WWE website for tonight’s WWE Smackdown Live television show.
-Shane McMahon makes a WrestleMania announcement.
-Asuka makes her first appearance on Smackdown.
-The Road to WrestleMania begins for AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura.
-New U.S. Champion Randy Orton appears.
-Follow-up to the Bludgeon Brothers attacking The Usos and New Day.
Powell’s POV: It appears that Shane’s announcement involves himself, Sami Zayn, and Kevin Owens given that the WWE website preview of the announcements focusses on their interactions at WWE Fastlane. 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 then on Wednesday with the WWE Smackdown Hit List.
