With Night of Champions set for Sunday, this week will mark the go-home edition of SmackDown as the WWE tries to tie up any loose ends and head into the pay-per-view on a high note. SmackDown has admittedly been a bit stale as of late, but there are plenty of intriguing things to be addressed on the show this week.
Things figure to revolve around the World Heavyweight Championship, as Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio prepare to do battle again. Most fans have grown tired of the feud, but the added wrinkle of Sheamus' Brogue Kick possibly being banned is likely to be a hot topic.
Also, the Night of Champions undercard is still coming together, and SmackDown will probably be a big part of this week's show since CM Punk and John Cena were the main focus on RAW. A pay-per-view can't be great without great supporting feuds and matches, so SmackDown will be vital in that regard.
Here are the top five things you should be looking for while watching this week's edition of SmackDown ahead of Night of Champions.
