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 was the final show before the Royal Rumble on Sunday, and WWE opted to cover every feud on the show, leaving little room for standout matches.
Most of the night was filled with quick singles and tag matches, but the 10-man main event capped off the show nicely.
Sunday is when the road to WrestleMania officially begins. One man will walk out of the 30-man battle royal with a guaranteed shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania. This could be the chance for someone to get back to the top of the mountain or for a newcomer to cement his place in the main event.
Let's get right into the show with the first match featuring Big Show and Rey Mysterio taking on The Real Americans.
