With SummerSlam set for Sunday in Los Angeles, SmackDown represents the final WWE event prior to its No. 2 pay-per-view of the year. Much of the SummerSlam card is set, and many of the loose ends have been tied together, but there is still plenty to be done on SmackDown.
The most obvious is the resolution of the World Heavyweight Championship match. General manager Booker T canceled the SummerSlam bout between Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio when Del Rio had some cronies attack Sheamus last week, and now Booker has a decision to make with regard to the title match's status.
Also, WWE is promoting a match to determine Booker T's new assistant, while there are plenty of other things to watch for as well, including whether some of the higher-profile superstars not currently on the SummerSlam card will be added.
Here are the top five things that you should keep an eye on while watching this week's go-home edition of SmackDown.
