Carmella gets her rematch, Bryan and Almas face each other for the first time, the journey to find a new contender for the tag titles begins, and New Day meets King Booker in a pretty good episode of SmackDown Live.

The Club reunites to take on Shinsuke Nakamura and Rusev Day in the main event of an alright episode of SmackDown Live.
A long and entertaining show highlighted by two good matches featuring long histories. There was some down time in the show, but the good outweighed the not as good.
With excitement building for the draft at tomorrow’s first SmackDown Live, this RAW had an important feeling to it. It was a decent show highlighted by a very good WWE Title match.
This, the last taped SmackDown for a while, was entertaining enough and managed to maintain and build interest in the upcoming Battleground.
The big reveal of the Commissioners wasn’t surprising, and it had one of my least favorite segments in recent memory, but this RAW did have some really fun moments.
This episode felt like an afterthought, but the main event was good and there were some fun moments.
The 4th of July brought a lot of America, a great match between Rollins and Ziggler, another former SmackDown manager, and more America. Not a bad show.
A pretty good show with some good matches, though there were some clunkers and some obvious covering-up for Reigns’ inability to carry a feud.
This was a pretty good show, but it didn’t feel like much really happened.
Not a bad show. It was entertaining even though the wrestling didn’t always seem to be the first thing on the writers’ minds.
Not a bad final show before the PPV. Three good matches and not too much filler.
Some good matches make this a SmackDown worth watching.
Wrestling seemed to take a bit of a backseat to story on this week’s RAW, but it’s still an enjoyable watch.
Good matches and good talking segments make for one of the better Smackdowns in recent memory.
