The first SmackDown Live after a Wrestlemania was good. It might not have felt quite as energetic as RAW, but it had quite possibly the best moment of the past few days with the extremely exciting debut of Shinsuke Nakamura!
Team SmackDown gets shaken up less than two weeks before Survivor Series, and Becky Lynch puts her title on the line against Alexa Bliss.

A pretty good show that does well to build (or at least maintain) some interest in Summer Slam, specifically the big matches.
A pretty good show that feels like a minor curve in the road towards Summer Slam.

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.
