Every week on Bleacher Report, I take an in-depth look at SmackDown to recap the action, offer analysis and grade 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 SmackDown was average for the most part, but a couple of moments definitely stood out.
The Shield were finally on the receiving end of a gangland-style beating for once, Luke Harper looked extremely impressive against John Cena and Dolph Ziggler got another win.
Bray Wyatt delivered another one of his classic promos, but this time we got to hear from Luke Harper for more than a sentence.
A few other storylines were addressed, and plenty of attention was paid to the Andre Memorial Battle Royal.
Let's get right into the action with Kane's promo from the opening of the show.
