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.
SmackDown did not feature any major storylines developments, but there were a few matches that made this a standout show.
Randy Orton faced another one of his Elimination Chamber opponents in Christian this week, Daniel Bryan and Kane discussed their current feud and former friendship, and The Shield and The Wyatt Family continued to taunt each other.
Alexander Rusev continues to pop up in promo videos, and it is just a matter of time until we see him finally make his main-roster debut and show us what he's got.
Let's get right into the show with the opening segment featuring the former Team Hell No teammates and a back-and-forth promo about their feud.
