With only 48 hours until Money in the Bank, WWE rolled into the Consol Energy Center for SmackDown!
Just four days after laying "the Demon" Kane out with a spear to close out Monday Night Raw, Roman Reigns would be given the unenviable task of squaring off with the Big Red Monster in Friday's main event. Despite the best efforts from the mask-wearing monstrosity and Randy Orton to take Reigns out of the match, the former powerhouse of The Shield once again stood tall on the road to what could be his first WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
Sheamus and Bray Wyatt went to war in a preview of Sunday's main event, but it was the arrival of the Usos and their interaction with Erick Rowan and Luke Harper that stole the spotlight. Those two teams meet for the Usos' WWE Tag Team Championships at Money in the Bank.
The competitive rivalry between Paige and Naomi intensified thanks to Cameron, who is developing into a truly effective heel, while Big E outsmarted and enraged Rusev ahead of their match this Sunday night.
Seth Rollins got the last laugh on Dean Ambrose, while Jack Swagger may have sidelined Bad News Barrett, as the hype for the Money in the Bank Contract match reached new levels.
With so much focus directed at building Sunday's show and selling a few extra pay-per-views, this week's SmackDown proved to be one of the best in recent memory.
