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 is the first televised WWE event of 2014. WWE had exactly one chance to start off the year on the right foot, and it did pretty well.
The show opened with a promo from The Shield followed by a tag match featuring Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns taking on The Usos.
Then the main event featured CM Punk and The Usos teaming up to take on The Shield. Both matches were really good, but they might have competition for "Match of the Night" from The Wyatt Family and The Brotherhood.
Let's get right into the opening match with Rollins and Reigns taking on Jimmy and Jey Uso.
