Not every episode of Smackdown can be golden. Last week wasn’t quite on that level, but it was still a marvelous follow-up to the terrible 3-Hour holiday episode. Since its the Go Home show, one would think that we should be in for a doozy. Unfortunately, WWE’s recent track record with the Smackdown before the PPV hasn’t been getting the greatest marks.

Smackdown was on a roll with some great episodes. It’s not to say that Smackdown normally does a mediocre job, but rather that they were putting on well-constructed episodes after a short spell of lackluster efforts.

Can we attribute that bad taste left in our mouths to a themed episode? …

While continuing to be the most consistent televised WWE program, last week felt like it was missing substance. The show started off great, and some storyline developments kept things interesting, but the abundance of matches hindered their actual quality. Will Smackdown make up for this by giving us a card filled with riveting TV matches, or will we be subject to a card of mediocrity?
