Every week here on Bleacher Report, I 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. I also provide some predictions on the direction of storylines.
This week's show addressed several different feuds, but the lack of anyone from the world title picture definitely did not go unnoticed.
A couple of the matches were entertaining, but the show as a whole did not stand out as anything special. We saw some decent promos from Paul Heyman and Bray Wyatt, though.
Let's get right into the action with the first match featuring The Brotherhood taking on The New Age Outlaws.
