WWE SmackDown: 5 Things to Watch for During This Week's Show (Spoilers)

While SmackDown is generally considered to be the WWE's "B" show, there is no question that this week's edition is a must-see event. It isn't often that The Rock appears on the blue brand, but the WWE Champion will do precisely that as he hypes his WrestleMania XXIX match against John Cena.

The Rock figures to draw plenty of fringe viewers who don't necessarily watch SmackDown regularly. But there should be plenty in place for the diehard fans as well. The biggest segment announced ahead of time is a weightlifting competition between Mark Henry and Ryback. Since Henry and Ryback are considered the two strongest men in the WWE, it should be an extremely interesting exhibition.

There are plenty of other feuds going on as well that are likely to heat up with WrestleMania drawing ever closer. Jack Swagger has made life miserable for Alberto Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriguez as of late, so Del Rio is probably in the mood for revenge.

Also, Chris Jericho and Fandango have been going at it for the past week and are now scheduled to face each other at WrestleMania, meaning their program will be advanced on SmackDown, too.

Here are the top five things that you should keep an eye on while watching this week's episode of SmackDown. The first slide does contain spoilers, so if you're not interested in knowing what happened, skip ahead to the next slide for spoiler-free previews.
