Tonight, on a special Tuesday SUPERSMACKDOWN LIVE open discussion thread:
Fair warning: Whenever SuperSmackDown comes to Tuesday nights, there is absolutely no telling what will happen. From “Holiday Celebrations,” to “Blast[s] from the Past” to a good, old “Great American Bash” or coming all the way across the pond to the first-ever LIVE SmackDown broadcast from the United Kingdom, the “Super” edition of big blue has always carried with it an incredible history.
As WWE Week continues to invade USA Network, the second-longest-running episodic television show in history will no doubt deliver once again with a whole new batch of action, surprises and extraordinary moments. As they say, there is nothing like live television.
With such heightened circumstances, however, the all-important X-factor must also be considered (and we don’t just mean a visit from The ECW Originals — although we wouldn’t rule that out.) With such a big opportunity for exposure on the table, which Superstars and Divas will look to step up and prove their worth like never before? Who will bring a new level of outrageous or make a statement that will change their career forever? With so many possibilities, one thing is for sure: The WWE Universe cannot afford to miss a second.

Two matches have already been announced for the show: The New Day defending the WWE Tag Team Championship against the Lucha Dragons, and Dean Ambrose defending the Intercontinental Championship in a triple threat against Kevin Owens and Dolph Ziggler.
If we get enough conversation going in tonight’s open thread, I’ll include 10 of the best comments from it in tomorrow’s Best and Worst of SuperSmackDown Live column. Yes, “SuperSmackDown” is one word, and yes, it’s capitalized like that. I think “live” is supposed to be in all caps.
Enjoy the show! Let’s make jokes!
