With Raw focusing on the big WrestleMania feuds such as The Undertaker vs. CM Punk, Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar and The Rock vs. John Cena, SmackDown will be responsible for bolstering the undercard rivalries, which is something that must be done effectively this week with WrestleMania XXIX less than three weeks away.
The main angle on the blue brand continues to be the World Heavyweight Championship feud between Alberto Del Rio and Jack Swagger. Their storyline has actually been in motion longer than any other one on the the WrestleMania card currently as it started back at Elimination Chamber. The buildup has been solid thus far, but it needs to continue moving forward.
There are also several other potential angles that need to get moving in order to generate interest for WrestleMania. One of them is Big Show's potential involvement in Randy Orton and Sheamus' feud against The Shield. In addition to that, Ryback vs. Mark Henry was announced as a WrestleMania match on Raw, so their rivalry figures to kick into another gear on SmackDown.
