Only one show remains before the Hell in a Cell PPV.
Friday Night SmackDown, as always, will be leading us into the PPV this Sunday.
With only two weeks of build up, every shows count, so this edition of Friday Night SmackDown has a lot of ground to cover before Sunday's event.
There are a few things SmackDown should or needs to address before the event.
Following are five essential points that should be shown on the broadcast.
Right now, there are only four matches declared for the Hell in a Cell card.
Sin Cara vs. Sin Cara is one of the few feuds that has enough momentum that it could be realistically seen on the PPV.
The WWE needs this match, even though it might not end up being great.
The hope is that the combined force of two Sin Caras will nullify their botches, not multiply them.
But regardless, with the build up this match has, it must be added to the Hell in a Cell card tonight.
He is Mr. Money in the Bank.
He is the third biggest babyface on SmackDown.
His name is Daniel Bryan, and he has gained no wins in the last few months unless you count dark matches.
Bryan needs to start winning now.
It can even be a six-man tag match or a mixed tag match.
Bryan just needs a solid win to make us remember why he is Mr. Money in the Bank.
Christian has been down on his luck lately.
He loses matches and looks like a fool.
He may be a heel, but he is at least the second biggest heel on SmackDown. That means he should be made to look like a credible threat to the World Title and his prospective opponent.
With a match coming up against Sheamus at Hell in a Cell, Christian needs to at least have one encounter with Sheamus where he gets the upper hand.
Otherwise, this match will look extremely one-sided going in to Hell in a Cell.
Cody Rhodes was destroyed last week.
His blood was everywhere. It was in the ring, on Randy Orton, and on the unbreakable announce table.
Orton absolutely destroyed the Intercontinental Champion, but Rhodes won the match.
This is a slow-building feud which could be extremely interesting to see, but, in order for it to succeed, Rhodes will have to carry most of the feud himself.
Orton has a World Heavyweight Title match on Sunday, and Rhodes has nothing.
So, while Orton is distracted by Henry, Rhodes needs to remind everyone again and again that he was unfairly attacked, and he holds two wins over the current No. 1 contender for the World Title.
If he does that, we may soon see some real prestige coming to the Intercontinental Title with a match against the No. 1 face on SmackDown.
This is simple and will happen.
Mark Henry is the best thing happening on Smackdown right now.
He needs to keep this momentum.
Simply, Henry should be standing tall over Orton at the end of the night.
No little dropkicks and quick cut outs.
Henry needs to start the show bragging and end the show standing tall.
That is how Henry will remain a credible champion on SmackDown.
We have a PPV to watch on Sunday.
Interest is not at an all-time high right now to say the least, with so little build up.
This SmackDown needs to be memorable and exciting, start to finish.
If it's not, WWE may see some low buy rates for their upcoming PPV.
