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.
We are a little over one week away from Battleground, so WWE is doing its best to tighten up all the storylines and make sure everything is built in the right way.
