Can the Big Show defend his heavyweight championship belt against former champ Sheamus? Will Kane and Daniel Bryan continue their reign as tag-team champs as Team Hell No?

These scores will be settled when World Wrestling Entertainment’s “SmackDown” rolls into Anchorage on Jan. 17. 

WWE will tape an episode of its professional wrestling staple at Sullivan Arena, with a main event that includes the double headlining bill of the aforementioned championship bout and a match between “The Viper” Randy Orton and Alberto Del Rio.

A press release from Sullivan Arena listed an undercard (subject to change) featuring Team Hell No, Brodus Clay, Cody Rhodes, Justin Gabriel, Heath Slater and Wade Barrett. 

Tickets start at $20, available through Ticketmaster beginning Dec. 1. The SmackDown world tour will travel north after visiting Anchorage, hitting the Carlson Center in Fairbanks on Jan. 18.
