Last night's Smackdown taping in Baton Rogue featured some impressive star power to mark the show's move to Thursday nights on SyFy. That, combined with the fact that we're only a week and a half away from one of the biggest events on the WWE calendar, the Royal Rumble pay-per-view (PPV), meant we were bound to get some newsworthy items.
Full spoilers for tomorrow (Jan. 15, 2015) are here. The pertinents for next Sunday in Philadelphia however are...
- Miz & Mizdow will get another shot at Jimmy & Jey Usos tag belts. This is the second straight PPV featuring that match, and at Survivor Series both teams were involved in the Fatal 4Way for the titles.
- Kane and Big Show declared themselves for the 30-man field for the eponymous match, bring the list of announced entrants to seven: Daniel Bryan, Rusev, Bad News Barrett, Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Big Show and Kane.
The Royal Rumble event takes place on Sun., Jan. 25, 2015, and will be headlined by the battler royal and a triple threat for the WWE championship featuring Brock Lesnar defending against John Cena and Seth Rollins.
Thoughts on these new additions, Cagesiders? Is there enough here to get you excited?
