WWE Smackdown News & Notes 2/4

– WWE announced A.J. Styles vs. Chris Jericho for next week’s Smackdown. It’s a rare time WWE announced a match for the following Smackdown (instead of Raw) as part of trying to reinvigorate Smackdown now that it’s on USA Network.

– WWE announced Brock Lesnar for the next Raw continuing to build to Fast Lane.

– The main emphasis of Smackdown was teasing conflict between “brothers” Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. The duo are heading into a triple threat #1 contender match against Lesnar at Fast Lane.

– Smackdown emanated from Smackdown announcer Jerry Lawler’s hometown of Memphis.

– Ryback debuted a new look that was strikingly similar to a former WCW champion Goldberg.
