Another show, another light roster due to the WWE Holiday Tour that swept the country, and part of Canada, this past week.
Unlike Monday's Raw, this week's SmackDown definitely suffered from a lack of star power and really felt like a placeholder show until the rosters are back together next week.
The CM Punk-Shield conflict continued, this time with the Usos involved.
While the followup to the Daniel Bryan angle that closed the show was rather lackluster, the Wyatt Family was involved in a phenomenal tag match with WWE Tag Team champions Cody Rhodes and Goldust. Would Luke Harper and Erick Rowan be able to follow up the moral victory from Monday night with a championship win?
Fresh off a great performance against Fandango on Raw, Intercontinental champion Big E Langston squared off against the man he defeated to win the title, Curtis Axel.
Some of WWE's top young stars were on display Friday night. Who left the so-called "blue show" riding a wave of momentum into Monday night's "Old School" edition of Raw?
Let's find out now.
This is the Good, the Great and the Awesome for the January 3 episode of Friday Night SmackDown.
