SmackDown! Preview: Daniel Bryan/World Title Aftermath, Zack Ryder Advertised

  • Share

WWE will be taping the first post-SmackDown! taping since the TLC pay-per-view from Richmond, Virginia tonight. The taping tonight will feature Daniel Bryan’s first appearance on the brand as the blue show’s World Heavyweight Champion.

The show will also have fall-out from the TLC pay-per-view featuring Cody Rhodes retaining the Intercontinental Championship after Booker T lost his match at the PPV due to constant attacks from Rhodes both leading up to and at the PPV Sunday night. The company will also continue the Randy Orton/Wade Barrett feud.

New United States Champion Zack Ryder from RAW is advertised for tonight’s taping at the Richmond Coliseum.

While no matches have been announced for the taping itself, advertised for the local crowd is Big Show vs Mark Henry vs Randy Orton for the World Heavyweight Championship with Booker T as the special guest referee. However, considering that Bryan won the title Sunday night, that match will likely be changing.
