Measure of Revenge.
The 828th edition of WWE Thursday Night SmackDown came to you from the Giant Center in Hershey, PA. In the last couple of weeks, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins and the reunited Authority have successfully beat down “The Beast” Brock Lesnar, Dean Ambrose, and Roman Reigns, effectively standing dominant and unified over the three biggest threats to Rollins’ reign as WWE World Heavyweight Champion. With just over two weeks to go before Seth Rollins defends the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Brock Lesnar at Battleground, the self-proclaimed “future of WWE” will kick off SmackDown with Director of Operations Kane and J&J Security in tow. What will The Authority have to say about their destruction of Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns this past Monday night on RAW?
Also on SmackDown, before he defends the Intercontinental Championship against Big Show and The Miz in a Triple Threat Match at Battleground, Ryback would be in action on SmackDown as the Intercontinental Champion would go one-on-one with “The World’s Strongest Man” Mark Henry in a non-title match. Can “The Big Guy” overcome “The World’s Strongest Man” in a titanic collision? Will either Big Show or The Miz be on SmackDown to try and make a statement at the expense of Ryback?
