The July 11 episode of SmackDown was not necessarily what one would call WWE's finest two hours of programming.

Most of the matches were incredibly short, the wrestling was average in most cases and there was very little action of any real importance. For the most part, the show played out like a placeholder as WWE gears up for its Battleground pay-per-view on July 20.

That does not mean everything was bad.

Chris Jericho and Randy Orton delivered the match of the night in a great, old-school-style wrestling match that showcased the talents of two of this generation's best performers.

Cody Rhodes continued to amaze as Stardust, an absolutely ridiculous gimmick that the talented second-generation star has managed to get over against all odds.

Roman Reigns and Rusev capped off the show in a clash of dominant heavyweights. Both men worked hard and delivered a bout that proved they not only had chemistry together but also are capable of something special in the future.

Bo Dallas continued to entertain audiences across the globe, while Summer Rae and Layla turned the tables on their chauvinistic dance partner, Fandango.

With this week's broadcast in the books and WWE Battleground on the horizon, relive the very best of SmackDown with The Good, the Great and the Awesome.
