WWE.com has released its official preview for this week’s episode of “Smackdown Live”. The featured story looks at Smackdown World Champion AJ Styles vs. #1 contender Shinsuke Nakamura. The two are scheduled to face off at “Wrestlemania” and the build can now begin with “Fastlane 2018” out of the way. Here are the featured stories in this week’s preview.
Shane McMahon to make a WrestleMania announcement.
Asuka to make her first SmackDown LIVE appearance after challenging Charlotte Flair

How will Randy Orton deal with the target on his back?

Opinion: It’s about time we get on with the build towards “Wrestlemania” as “Fastlane” didn’t exactly set things up very well. It’s nice to see things actually start to matter but my goodness they took their sweet time to get somewhere. With just four episodes left before the pay per view, they have their work cut out for them.
