The rivalry between Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins completely encapsulated the August 8 episode of SmackDown, kicking the show off and ending it as the former friends and partners moved one step closer to their SummerSlam clash a week from Sunday.
Ambrose revealed that their match would be a Lumberjack match, leaving Rollins with no place to run or hide come bell time. Rollins responded by assaulting Ambrose to close out the show. The spotlight shone on their rivalry, and the Superstars made the most of the opportunity, ensuring that their match on August 17 is one of the most anticipated on the SummerSlam card.
Otherwise, this week's show was light on meaningful content.
Big Show, Mark Henry and Sin Cara were put in positions to shine, despite doing nothing of significance for months. The lack of star power was noticeable, as the tour of Australia is doing the company no favors as it attempted to wrap up the build to its second most important pay-per-view.
Still, there were certainly matches and segments to enjoy, with most centering on feuds that will play out when WWE presents it latest extravaganza on the WWE Network. (Do you know it's only $9.99 to subscribe?)
