WWE Smackdown Spoilers for 02/25/2016: Wade Barrett Returns to Action
WWE Smackdown was taped in Indianapolis, IN last night, and it was a momentous show on the road to Wrestlemania. For one, despite news hitting the web that he’d be leaving the company at the end of his contract this summer, and despite being sidelined for months with an undisclosed injury, Wade Barrett returned to action this week on the show! King Barrett teamed with his fellow League of Nations colleagues Rusev, Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio to take on The Lucha Dragons, Neville and Dolph Ziggler.
But that wasn’t all, as the main event featured a six-man tag team match that pit The New Day against Chris Jericho, AJ Styles and a mystery partner. In addition, we got a MAJOR announcement on a big name heading to Monday Night Raw this coming week. Smackdown is really feeling like a big deal now, in ways it hadn’t before. And you can usually depend on some really good action on the show each week, if nothing else (even if they aren’t always marquee match-ups). This week appears to be no different. Check out the full spoilers below via Wrestling Observer/Figure 4 Weekly:
