Every week here on Bleacher Report, I will take an in-depth look at SmackDown, recapping all of the action, offering analysis and grading the matches, segments and anything else that takes place on the show, as well as provide some predictions on the direction of storylines.
This week's show served to further many of the storylines heading into TLC and it provided us with a couple of great matches.
Many of the weekly regulars were missing from SmackDown like The Usos and The Prime Time Players, but we did get to see the WWE, United States, Tag Team and Intercontinental champions in action.
Nothing happened this week that will be remembered years from now, but it was an decent show that provided some solid entertainment, and that is the best we can hope for most weeks.
Let's get right into the show, with the opening segment featuring Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan reigniting their feud.
