WWE Friday Night SmackDown Preview – March 23, 2012

Funk is on a roll!

So, folks hungry for a new “Straight Shoot” column are going to have to deal with their stomach rumblings for at least a little while longer, as I’m still working out the specifics of where that type of heavy wrestling criticism and analysis will land post-UGO (if you have a lead, feel free to get at me in the comments or on Twitter). But in the meantime, I’ve started up a BRAND-NEW weekly wrestling feature with the fine folks over at GuySpeed.com: A weekly SmackDown preview!

See,SmackDown, though it airs on Fridays, is pretty much always pretaped in front of a live audience on Tuesdays, so by Wednesday morning, the internet is full of reports from the event. Things always change a little, segments are sometimes edited out of the show and backstage pretapes aren’t always ready to roll by then, but in general, the show is pretty much done, and by looking at dirt sheet-based fan reports, you can get a pretty good idea of what’s going to happen on the program.

My weekly SmackDown previews are going to take a look at the top five reasons you should tune into the show each week, whether it’s a match you should see, a video package WWE will probably air or even a Funkasaurus sighting, as seen above. Obviously, SPOILER WARNINGS are in full-effect, but I don’t plan on revealing winners of matches unless it’s a major title change that you’ll want to tune in for. Similar to my Raw recap from earlier this week, this sucker is a work in progress, so please make sure to let me know if you’d like to see things done in a different manner. And of course, please, please, PLEASE leave comments over on GuySpeed.com and share the article through your social networks.

Enjoy this week’s SmackDown preview!
