SmackDown first showing since WWE Hell in a Cell kicked off an intriguing fashion this week.
A promo opened proceedings, covering some of the main issues from Sunday’s pay-per-view and hinting that we may finally get some answers surrounding the Brad Maddox and AJ/John Cena controversies.
Unfortunately, but perhaps predictably, SmackDown provided no such answers.
But what the show lacked in storyline developments, it somewhat atoned for with some good old-fashioned wrestling action.
Once again, we take a look at the five top talking points to come from SmackDown this week, assessing their implications roughly two weeks away from the Survivor Series PPV.
