With WrestleMania XXIX now only about a month away, each and every piece of WWE programming is of the utmost importance.
On the heels of a strong Old School Raw, the WWE needs to put forth an effective episode of SmackDown in order to keep the momentum heading in the right direction.
The main storyline on the blue brand continues to be the World Heavyweight Championship feud between Alberto Del Rio and Jack Swagger.
The two of them were involved in a tussle on Raw in the backstage area and they have continued to poke and prod at each other. Their feud hasn't quite reached its climax yet, but the slow burn has been entertaining thus far.
In addition to the world title scene, the WWE still has to do a ton of preparation for the WrestleMania undercard. That means superstars such as Randy Orton, Sheamus, Big Show, Ryback, Mark Henry, Antonio Cesaro, Wade Barrett and The Shield need to be given some direction.
Also, Fandango is once again scheduled to make his in-ring debut, but will he actually go through with it?
Here are the top five things that you should be cognizant of while watching this week's edition of WWE SmackDown.
