With the Road to WrestleMania officially underway, extra scrutiny and attention is being paid to the WWE's B show, as fans try to conceive what the first half of WrestleMania will entail.
The show's ever staggering ratings, and lack of creative concepts, have made for rather predictable programming the last few weeks. But this week's episode of SmackDown showed a possible glimmer of hope for this Sunday's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view and perhaps a exciting feud that could develop between two of the companies top talents.
I had the opportunity to attend a SmackDown house show and the SmackDown taping in Fresno on Tuesday. There were some similarities, but overall they were two completely different shows. Let's take a look at what was aired on Friday night.
