Follow along with our preview for Tuesday’s episode of WWE SmackDown Live.

WrestleMania week is upon us as WrestleMania 33 is set to take place this Sunday. Before we get to this weekend’s WrestleMania festivities, there still is the matter of this Tuesday’s episode of WWE SmackdDwn Live. 

As was the case on Raw, expect several SmackDown Live superstars to declare for the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Superstars such as Appolo Crews and Dolph Ziggler could be a part of the annual WrestleMania match.

How will AJ Styles respond to the attack that SmackDown Live commissioner Shane McMahon unleashed on him last week? The animosity between McMahon and Styles has escalated over the course of the past two weeks and the two are set to end their feud this Sunday at WrestleMania.

After winning the SmackDown Live tag-team titles last week against American Alpha, The Usos will be defending those titles at WrestleMania 33. At this point, The Usos’ opponent at WrestleMania this Sunday is not known.

The six-month feud between WWE champion Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton will likely reach a conclusion this Sunday. After delivering an eery message to Orton after his match with Baron Corbin last week, Wyatt has a new sense of momentum. Expect Orton to get the upper hand on Wyatt this week.

John Cena may not be involved in the most important feud at WrestleMania 33 but his program with his girlfriend, Nikki Bella, and Miz and Maryse has been entertaining. Miz and Maryse spoofed Total Bellas last week to poke fun at Cena and Bella. Expect WWE’s power couple to have an equal response this week.

Alexa Bliss is set to defend SmackDown’s Women’s title against all SmackDown Live female competitors that are available to compete. With few names confirmed for the match, expect some more participants to be revealed on Tuesday.

Baron Corbin is set to end his explosive rivalry with Intercontinental champion Dean Ambrose on Sunday.  Given the nature of the feud between Corbin and Ambrose, expect the two brawl once more on Tuesday before their match on Sunday.
