Manchester, England was the site for the November 15 episode of Friday Night SmackDown, and on tap for the evening's broadcast was a huge tag team main event pitting CM Punk and Daniel Bryan taking on Ryback and Curtis Axel.
Earlier in the week, it was officially announced that Punk and Bryan will take on Erick Rowan and Luke Harper at the Survivor Series. In their first opportunity to team up since that announcement, would Punk and Bryan give fans and the Wyatt Family a taste of what they can expect come November 24?
Speaking of the Wyatt Family, Rowan and Harper would prep for the biggest match of their career by taking on The Usos. Would they be able to channel their aggression into a big win over one of the top tag teams in World Wrestling Entertainment, or would they focus too much on their match at the pay-per-view and overlook the second-generation twin brothers and fall victim to a major upset?
As he prepares to defend the World Heavyweight Championship against former champion Alberto Del Rio, John Cena was challenged by Del Rio for an arm-wrestling match? Would Cena pick up what would seem to be an easy win, or would the Mexican Superstar have a devious plan in store for the champ?
Also scheduled for this week was a double dose of Divas action as Natalya takes on Tamina Snuka and the Bella Twins meet fellow Total Divas castmates the Funkadactyls.
With just over a week until the 27th annual Survivor Series, let's take a look back at this week's SmackDown.
