Every week on Bleacher Report, I take an in-depth look at WWE 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.
WWE saw a big upswing in quality after the abysmal episode we had last week. There were a few very good matches and a lot of storyline development.
Bray Wyatt made his return, Dolph Ziggler and Seth Rollins squared off in a match many fans have wanted to see for a long time, and Wade Barrett successfully retained his Intercontinental Championship for the third time in a week.
Alicia Fox continued to wreak havoc at ringside after her match with Natalya, and Rusev defeated Xavier Woods in a match so quick, you would miss it if you sneezed.
Let's take a look at what went down on this week's SmackDown.
