The Good, the Great and the Awesome from July 18 SmackDown

On the final stop before Battleground this Sunday, exclusively on the WWE Network, SmackDown hit the SyFy airwaves with two huge main events on July 18.

Chris Jericho squared off against Luke Harper in a match that served as the final hype for Y2J's massive encounter with Bray Wyatt at this weekend's live special. The Superstars tore the house down, delivering a match that exceeded expectations.

Interference from Wyatt, Erick Rowan and WWE tag team champions The Usos marred an otherwise outstanding bout but at the same time put the focus on two of the higher-profile midcard bouts on Sunday's card.

In the main event of the evening, Dean Ambrose returned to action following the despicable assault perpetrated by The Authority's Seth Rollins, Randy Orton and Kane on Monday's Raw. Unfortunately for him, he was tasked with meeting the Big Red Monster while being less than 100 percent.

The Lunatic Fringe fought through pain but again found himself the recipient of a beatdown, this time by Kane and Rollins, whom he will meet at Battleground.

With the road to Battleground ending and the journey to SummerSlam beginning on Sunday, WWE delivered an episode of SmackDown that focused on the undercard of Sunday's extravaganza rather than the main event, which has been hyped nonstop on Raw.

In preparation for Battleground, relive the very best from Friday night's show with this week's edition of The Good, the Great and the Awesome from SmackDown!
