WWE Wrestlemania Smackdown preview and schedule: April 1, 2022

Apart
from
giving
the
final
touch-ups
for
top
rivalries,
WWE
will
host
the
Andre
the
Giant
Memorial
Battle
Royal
to
set
the
tone
for
the
Showcase
of
Immortals.

Also,
two
tag
team
partners
will
be
gunning
for
the
Intercontinental
Championship
in
a
Triple
Threat
Match
as
a
special
Smackdown
awaits
from
the
American
Airlines
Center
in
Dallas,
Texas.

WWE
Champion
Brock
Lesnar
and
WWE
Universal
Champion
Roman
Reigns
are
being
locally
advertised
to
be
the
headliners
for
Wrestlemania
SmackDown,
but
as
of
this
writing,
WWE
hasn’t
officially
booked
them
for
a
segment.

The
two
top
superstars
were
present
on
Wrestlemania
Raw,
trading
promos
at
each
other.
Hence,
chances
are
less
that
they
will
be
engaging
in
either
verbal
or
physical
showdown
before
their
encounter.

Rather,
Smackdown
Women’s
Champion
Charlotte
Flair
and
Ronda
Rousey
were
absent
from
Raw
who
might
make
one
last
appearance,
tonight
before
locking
horns
in
the
potential
main-event
match
for
Wrestlemania
38
Night
One.

As
per
confirmations
received
from
WWE,
the
8th
annual
Andre
the
Giant
Memorial
Battle
Royal
will
take
center
stage
of
this
week’s
Smackdown.
A
multitude
of
Superstars
from
red
and
blue
brand
will
step
into
the
squared
circle
to
claim
the
coveted
trophy
and
become
a
breakout
star,
down
the
line.


WWE
has
announced
17
participants
for
the
melee
and
the
names
are
given
below:


Apollo
Crews


Commander
Azeez


Erik
and
Ivar
of
the
Viking
Raiders


Cedric
Alexander
&
Shelton
Benjamin
of
The
Hurt
Business


United
States
Champion
Finn
Balor


Damian
Priest


Robert
Roode


Jinder
Mahal


Shanky


R-Truth


Mansoor


Madcap
Moss


Reggie


Drew
Gulak


Akira
Tozawa

Interestingly,
one
of
the
top
Raw
Superstars,
United
States
Champion
Finn
Balor
has
been
added
to
the
fray.
Original
plans
for
him
at
Wrestlemania
38
called
for
a
title
defense
against
his
current
rival
Damian
Priest.

Since
both
these
superstars
will
appear
in
the
over-the-top-rope
battle
royal,
WWE
may
just
conduct
an
angle,
leading
to
the
singles
match.
But
as
of
now,
this
stands
as
just
speculation.

Andre
the
Giant
Memorial
Battle
Royal
was
introduced
at
WrestleMania
30
as
a
tradition
for
the
spectacle
in
honor
of
the
late
WWE
Hall
of
Famer
Andre
the
Giant.
But
for
the
second
year
in
a
row,
this
match
will
go
down
on
the
WrestleMania
edition
of
SmackDown.

Previous
winners
for
Andre
the
Giant
Memorial
Battle
Royal
include
Cesaro
in
2014,
Big
Show
in
2015,
Happy
Baron
Corbin
in
2016,
Mojo
Rawley
in
2017,
Matt
Hardy
in
2018,
Braun
Strowman
in
2019,
and
one-half
of
SmackDown
Tag
Team
Champions,
Jey
Uso
in
2021.
In
2020,
the
match
was
canceled
due
to
COVID-19
protocols.

Real-life
cousins,
Humberto
and
Angel
used
their
mean
mind-games
to
secure
back-to-back
wins
against
the
mid-card
champion
on
Smackdown
and
now
they
have
been
granted
a
title
match
opportunity.

As
confirmed
by
WWE,
this
week’s
blue
brand
show
will
feature
a
Triple
Threat
Match
for
the
WWE
Intercontinental
Title
with
the
champion
Ricochet
defending
against
Angel
and
Humberto
also
known
as
Los
Lotharios.

Last
week,
Angel
defeated
Ricochet
in
a
Championship
Contender’s
match,
thanks
to
outside
interferences
by
Humberto.
An
irate
Ricochet
then
called
out
Humberto
for
a
match.
This
time,
Angel
helped
his
cousin
to
get
a
victory
in
that
Championship
Contender’s
match
via
count-out.

The
titleholder
then
personally
asked
WWE
Official
Adam
Pearce
to
give
both
Angel
and
Humberto
a
championship
opportunity
against
him
in
a
Triple
Threat
Match
to
set
up
this
match.

Will
one
of
the
Los
Lotharios
be
able
to
upset
the
high-flying
champion
at
the
very
beginning
of
the
biggest
weekend
of
the
year?
We’ll
find
out
when
Wrestlemania
Smackdown
airs
on
FOX.
