  • Check out our WWE Smackdown spoiler-free preview for tonight’s show.
  • We have a review of Tuesday’s Main Event in case you did not see the show.
  • I put in my two cents on the Del Rio firing.

Del Rio’s contract was expected to expire later this year. It had been reported that he planned on leaving the company due to unhappiness with how he was being booked for shows. Last fall, ADR was placed in a feud with John Cena, who was returning from injury, for the World Heavyweight Championship. Cena would defeat him in both match-ups at the Hell in a Cell and Survivor Series pay-per-views.

  • Justin LaBar gives us a reality check on the probably NWO reunion.
  • Chris Jericho helped someone with a proposal at a WWE live event in Australia.

Chris Jericho helped his friend and fan Daniel House get engaged to his girlfriend Mikala at today’s WWE live event in Melbourne, Australia. Their daughter Shakiya was also present for the proposal.
