Welcome to Bleacher Report's coverage for the live episode of SmackDown airing Jan. 29.
Due to the severe weather in the Northeast, both Raw and the scheduled SD taping ended up being cancelled. Raw was replaced by a series of interviews and replays from the Royal Rumble, but SmackDown will go on as a live broadcast at its scheduled time.
Since we didn't get to see a real show on Monday, SmackDown should be filled with most of what we would have seen the night after the Rumble.
The one big thing we witnessed during Raw was a face-to-face confrontation between WWE world heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and the winner of the Royal Rumble, Roman Reigns.
The Road to WrestleMania is typically when WWE puts its best foot forward and delivers some of the better storylines during the year. Hopefully that all begins with Thursday's show.
Will John Cena and Rusev continue what they started at the Royal Rumble?
When will Randy Orton return to action?
Can Roman Reigns win back the love of the WWE Universe?
Will any more matches be booked for Fast Lane?
And lastly, when will Damien Mizdow finally tire of the abuse from The Miz and go off on his own?
Make sure to bookmark this page and come back Monday night at the start of WWE SmackDown at 8 p.m. ET. Bleacher Report will have answers to these questions and live coverage of all the action.
