Rivalry Laid to Rest.
Four nights after the Royal Rumble, the 806th edition of WWE SmackDown came to you, live, from the XL Center in Hartford, CT. After a disappointing performance in the Royal Rumble Match this past Sunday, Daniel Bryan left no doubt that he is “mad as hell” during an interview on Monday’s special edition of RAW and Bryan is determined to finish his rivalry with Kane and set his sights back on the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. However, that would be easier said than done for Daniel Bryan as the bearded underdog would face The Authority’s favorite demon, Kane, in the haunting and rarely seen Casket Match! While Kane is a seasoned veteran when it comes to the spooky match, Daniel Bryan has never been in a Casket Match in his career. Will Daniel Bryan find a way to lock The Authority’s designated demon in a casket or will Kane bury Daniel Bryan’s dreams even further?
After an intense confrontation with his WrestleMania opponent, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar, on RAW, the winner of the 2015 Royal Rumble Match, Roman Reigns, is scheduled to appear live on SmackDown. With Roman Reigns showing absolutely no fear of “The Beast” this past Monday night, is the Royal Rumble winner truly ready to go toe-to-toe with Brock Lesnar on “The Grandest Stage of Them All”? Will anyone attempt to derail Roman Reigns on his Road to WrestleMania?
Following a first time confrontation between the two after the Royal Rumble event this past Sunday night, the match was made official on RAW as, in four weeks at WWE’s newest pay-per-view, Fast Lane, John Cena will go one-on-one with the undefeated United States Champion Rusev for the first time ever! Will either John Cena or Rusev & Lana appear on SmackDown to discuss their impending collision?
