Get on with it already. As of Tuesday morning, we have five combined of “Monday Night Raw” and “Smackdown Live” left before “Wrestlemania XXXIV”. A lot of the card is already set but there’s still a lot of work to do before we get to New Orleans. One of those shows is tonight and there’s some stuff on tap. has released its official preview for this week’s episode of “Smackdown Live”. This week’s show will focus on the fallout of last week’s attack on Commissioner Shane McMahon at the hands of Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. Other than that we may get an update on AJ Styles’ status as he is dealing with an injury. Here are the five stories that WWE is previewing:

Opinion: The preview looks fine but they need to put the finishing touches on this show already. There’s not much time left before the show and the card isn’t finalized yet. I’m really not sure why they’re taking so much time with all of this but they’re going to be lucky to have the card finalized by the end of next week.
