Tonight, on the With Spandex WWE Smackdown Live open discussion thread:
Last Tuesday, Rey Mysterio and Andrade “Cien” Almas dazzled the WWE Universe with an unbelievable exchange of holds and counters, as Mysterio showed why he is one of the greatest Superstars ever and Almas made his case for being the future of Team Blue. This week, the two luchadors will square off in one-on-one action. Can Mysterio turn back the young upstart, or will Almas defeat the masked legend? Find out on SmackDown LIVE, tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network! (via WWE.com0
Our five-point preview:
1. The Miz is throwing Shane McMahon the “best birthday party in the world,” which he’ll definitely appreciate and be a good dude about. Bonus points if Miz gives Shane a cowboy hat and Shane stomps on it.
2. What’s next for Asuka and Becky Lynch? Is it “trying to break each other’s arms,” because I’m into that.
3. Carmella and Sonya Deville go one-on-one, and try not to have it devolve into a conversation about Mandy Rose getting from a hotel to the arena in nothing but a towel, just kidding, it’s only about that.
4. Rey Mysterio and Andrade Almas are wrestling again, because now you don’t just have a couple of matches in a row, you have all of them.
5. Is Daniel Bryan finally debuting his new WWE Championship, and if not, why isn’t he?
