The March 26 edition of WWE SmackDown will be light on action, heavy on hype.

Most of the two-hour show will be dedicated to selling fans on WrestleMania 31. Expect to get all caught up on the major feuds set to climax at the pay-per-view. Only briefly will the promos and recaps stop for in-ring action.

When it is time for wrestling, WWE will turn to tag team action and the services of Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns, among others.

SmackDown's bouts are already decided. WWE taped the show in Staples Center in Los Angeles after Monday's Raw. For a spoiler-free look at what matches to expect on the go-home episode of SmackDown, read on.

Big E vs. Cesaro vs. Fernando vs. Jimmy Uso

The Fatal 4-Way is a WrestleMania preview of sorts. Each team set for battle in WrestleMania's pre-show match for the Tag Team Championships gets to send one wrestler into the ring here.

With Jey Uso nursing an injured shoulder, it's not surprising WWE went this route. He is cleared to compete, but it makes little sense to have him worsen the arm when his brother can do all the flying for him on SmackDown.

This is an intriguing bout on paper thanks to the blend of styles.

In addition, fans will be curious to see who WWE wants to gather momentum heading into WrestleMania. Fernando coming out on top hints at a possible victory for Los Matadores on Sunday. Big E taking everyone out does the same for The New Day.

The upcoming tag title match and the division in general has had little spark. These four gentlemen have one last chance to change that before WrestleMania.

Daniel Bryan, John Cena, Roman Reigns and Mark Henry vs. Bray Wyatt, Kane, Seth Rollins and Big Show

The majority of the biggest stars lined up for marquee bouts at WrestleMania get shoved into a single clash.

Bryan and Reigns made a formidable team a few weeks ago on SmackDown. They now add Cena and Henry to make a star-studded quartet.

Each Superstar involved here could use a victory to propel him into the premier event of the year. Bryan looks to shake off his loss to Dolph Ziggler on Monday's Raw. Wyatt wants to get warmed up for his showdown with Undertaker.

The heel team has the advantage of familiarity as everyone but Wyatt is part of The Authority. However, they face two wrestlers in Reigns and Cena who just don't taste defeat often.

While few folks will expect The Deadman or Brock Lesnar to get involved, outside interference could play a factor. Randy Orton has plenty of reason to want to hurt Rollins; Rusev may be looking to ambush Cena.

Regardless of how this sure-to-be chaotic contest plays out, it has to be more fulfilling than the tug-of-war that ended Monday's Raw.
