After another big night on "Monday Night Raw" yesterday, the superstars of "SmackDown Live" will be back in action Tuesday. The various stars of the WWE's blue brand roster will be looking to continue their momentum towards the colossal "WrestleMania 33" event in Orlando, Florida. At least a few major matches are already booked for the February 21, 2017, episode, which will have fans talking right up to the show, and of course, after it goes off the air.

The big battle royal

Last week saw "The Viper" Randy Orton tell Bray Wyatt that he won't fight against his "master" for the title at "WrestleMania 33." That prompted the powers that be at "SmackDown" to set up a huge battle royal for tonight's episode. The winner of the match will get to face Bray Wyatt at "Mania" for the title.

The early favorite to win the match was Luke Harper. He's been involved in a feud with both Wyatt and Orton lately, so him getting the win makes sense.

However, some other rumors going around suggest AJ Styles has a shot to get the win.

No matter who wins the big match, it would provide plenty of drama. Don't be surprised if some of what goes down in the match could set up some of the other feuds for the big "WrestleMania 33" match card!

Nikki vs. Natalya

Another big match will be a "Falls Count Anywhere" match involving Nikki Bella and Natalya. The two women's wrestlers have been at each other's throats for weeks now.

At the "Elimination Chamber" pay-per-view, their match ended with no clear winner, as it was a double count out. The two continued to fight backstage.

Since it's a Falls Count Anywhere situation, that means the pin could come in the ring, in the crowd, backstage, or outside.

There's always the possibility that fans will see a certain other women's star get involved. Remember weeks ago, that Maryse was accidentally bumped by Nikki backstage at "Elimination Chamber" causing Miz's wife to spill powder all over herself. Could she get involved tonight?

Women's Championship

Last week saw brand new SmackDown Women's Champion Naomi come to the ring to celebrate with the fans.

She mentioned suffering a minor injury during all the excitement of winning her match. That also brought out the former champion to challenge her.

Alexa Bliss showed up and gave Naomi a bit of a break. Rather than challenging her right there on the spot, she gave Naomi a week to get better so she could give her the rematch. Will Naomi be able to defend the title tonight, and if so, will she be able to hold off the former champ? Could Alexa Bliss become the first two-time women's champion on the "SmackDown Live" roster?
