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.
This was the very last show before Battleground this Sunday, and WWE did a good job of addressing all the storylines before the pay-per-view.
Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose's feud dominated the night with the opening segment, a midshow segment backstage and a main event match, but the intercontinental title also received quite a bit of attention during two of the bouts that featured participants from this Sunday's Battle Royal.
One thing that made this show great was that we did not have to sit through a million video packages, which tends to happen on the SmackDown right before a PPV.
Let's take a look at what went down on this week's SmackDown and also try to provide a few predictions for Battleground on Sunday.
