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.
We are still less than a week out from WrestleMania, but a lot of the energy created by the event has gone away, and we are starting to get back to normal.
This was quite possibly the biggest week for wrestling news in many years, for reasons both happy and sad. The best things we saw were Daniel Bryan winning the title and Cesaro joining Paul Heyman.
The Undertaker's streak finally coming to an end was unexpected and controversial, but Warrior's passing was the worst news of the week.
SmackDown was filmed before news broke about Warrior's passing, so WWE was only able to put up a graphic, but Michael Cole spoke while the grahic was on-screen and said Raw would be devoted to Warrior's memory.
