Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE. Today's edition is your Smackdown recap from last night's show. Smackdown took place this week in Austin, Texas. Daniel Bryan is looking ahead to the Royal Rumble, but has to beat Kane, tonight, to get there. Dolph Ziggler, Erick Rowan and Ryback are back, thanks to John Cena and another assist from Sting. Tonight those three look for a chance to earn a spot into the Royal Rumble as well. Let's get to this week's Smackdown recap.
