While Monday's Raw featured the rise of Daniel Bryan, this week's SmackDown centered on CM Punk and his war with the Authority.
The Best in the World called out both The Shield and the New Age Outlaws but found his greatest opposition in the form of the 7'0'' Big Red Monster, Kane. What would the director of operations have in store for Punk, and how will it affect the major WrestleMania angle between Punk and The Authority?
Just four days removed from losing to Alberto Del Rio on Raw, Rey Mysterio would have the opportunity to avenge the loss by taking on his longtime rival. Would the Master of the 619 get back to his winning ways, or would Del Rio have another chance to brag about his winning streak heading into the Royal Rumble?
The Usos would take on the Real Americans coming off a big win against the Wyatt Family on Raw while questions continued to surround The Shield's perceived dissension.
Perhaps the most newsworthy event coming out of this week's SmackDown was the disturbing promo cut by the Wyatt Family following Bryan's betrayal on Raw. Has the goat-faced Superstar pushed Bray Wyatt to places he cannot return from? What does that mean for the rest of the roster?
What went down Friday night, and what was the good, great and awesome that came from it?
Let's take a look.
