Although many have found SmackDown to be repetitive in recent weeks, things are clearly starting to change on the blue brand. The World Heavyweight Championship feud is the same with Alberto Del Rio defending against Big Show, but with Mark Henry and Jack Swagger back in the fold, the product suddenly seems fresh and interesting.
In an effort to keep things feeling that way, the WWE is running an angle this week that involves SmackDown general manager Booker T "suspending" Del Rio. This stems from Del Rio's attacks on Big Show in a parking lot and at a hotel. Del Rio obviously isn't actually suspended, so I suspect that he'll play some role on the show regardless.
Henry and Swagger are also likely to appear as they attempt to impress Booker T. There are still three spots available in the Elimination Chamber match to determine the No. 1 contender for the World Heavyweight Championship. Henry and Swagger are obviously prime candidates to be included, so it will be intriguing to see how they perform this week.
Here are the top five things you should be on the lookout for while watching the upcoming episode of SmackDown.
