The events of Night of Champions certainly promise to shake things up on SmackDown, so this week's edition of the show promises to be much different than it has been in recent weeks.

Most WWE fans would probably agree that the blue brand has been a bit lackluster as of late, but hopefully that will change beginning this Friday.

World heavyweight champion Sheamus defeated Alberto Del Rio once again on Sunday, which means their feud has in all likelihood come to an end.

Sheamus and Del Rio have dominated SmackDown for the past several months, so it will be refreshing to see someone new thrust into the spotlight.

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of SmackDown this week is that a WWE Hall of Famer, the Rated-R Superstar Edge, will be hosting the show, according to WWE.com.

Edge had expressed his desire to stay away from wrestling for the most part, but his fans will undoubtedly be thrilled to see him.

SmackDown is essentially a clean slate right now, since so many angles seemingly came to an end at Night of Champions. Therefore, there is most definitely reason to tune in this week.

Here are the top five things you should keep an eye on during the show.
