The Smacktalker Skywalker, a certified G and a bonafide stud, Enzo Amore joined Chad Dukes Versus the World and the Chad Dukes Wrestling Show Friday Afternoon. The man who’s quick as a cat and fast as a feline was gracious enough to chat with Dukes for a 20 minute interview discussing a number of topics from the NXT crowd, his promos, how much of his on-screen persona is actually him, his real life history with Big Cass, being discovered by Triple H, NXT as a third brand, who he’d like to face on the main roster, his Super Bowl pick, and more.
Listen to the interview, spread the word because if you don’t you’re S-A-W-F-T!

Today’s roundup will take a look at previewing a few shows airing tonight on the magic box with some pro graps connections.

Roddy Piper on Undercover Boss - YouTube
In this sneak peak of tonight’s episode of Undercover Boss featuring the President of Rocket Fizz, a candy and soda manufacturer, the Hot Rod makes a special appearance.
Dolph Ziggler Tag Teams with Kyle Kinane – YouTube
At Midnight tonight on Comedy Central, comedian Kyle Kinane’s new comedy special airs. How does this relate to Wrestling you ask? Well, he got the Show Off himself to record a promo helping promote the show. Have a gander.
I think we can all agree Sunday’s Royal Rumble Match has 2-3 clear “favorites” to emerge with the Championship Match at WrestleMania. There are dark horses to be sure, names I wouldn’t object to winning or who would be a legitimate surprise winner like Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, or Dolph Ziggler. However, the current leaders in the clubhouse would have to be narrowed to Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns, or a “surprise” returning Randy Orton. All three are huge names within WWE and all three, with the right opponent could deliver a satisfying WrestleMania main event. And let’s be honest, each superstar will be on the card in their own high-profile match anyway, win or lose, so why not the main event?
Less clear heading into Sunday is the fate of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Originally scheduled as Cena-Lesnar III, the result seemed destined to have Lesnar retaining his championship. However, between the rumors of Lesnar’s return to UFC looming and the addition of Seth Rollins to the match, the identity of who will walk into Santa Clara on March 29th as champion has become a bit more murky, and that’s a good thing. The inability to 100% forecast the triple threat winner presents several intriguing options for each different champion/potential champion, but none more than Seth Rollins.
In all likelihood we are headed towards Roman Reigns versus Brock Lesnar, which despite the protests of a suddenly huge anti-Roman movement online sounds like a great time, but as last year proved WWE can change things up rather quickly. With that in mind I thought I’d explore all the title scenarios for the WrestleMania main event.

It’s do or die just 4 matches into the comeback of Daniel Bryan as his Royal Rumble spot is on the line on tonight’s SmackDown from Austin, TX.
After beating Kane via DQ and joining with Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose to defeat an Authority trio in last week’s feature bouts, the former WWE Champion will have to beat Kane one more time in a No Disqualification Match to keep his dream of back to back WrestleMania main events alive. No DQ means the Authority’s fingerprints will be all over the match, but with the rehiring of Dolph Ziggler, Ryback, & Erick Rowan could the odds swing into Bryan’s favor?
Keeping things spoiler free, the only other announced match for tonight will be a diva’s contest to hype up Sunday’s divas tag team match as Brie Bella goes toe to toe with Naomi. However, with the Royal Rumble just 3 days away it’s a pretty safe bet we’ll have a more matches to determine Rumble participation and even money says a mass of humanity will fill the ring to close the show and put the finishing touches on the Royal Rumble hype machine.
SmackDown airs tonight at 8PM ET on SyFy!
