Previously on the Best and Worst of WWE Smackdown Live: WWE followed up a good episode of Raw with a terrible episode of Smackdown. This week Raw was terrible, so they follow it up with a much better Smackdown. I don’t know what they’re doing.

Best: Eric Bischoff Is Here (Whether He’s Actually Here Or Not)
I don’t know if Eric Bischoff took over Smackdown last night or if we’re waiting until Extreme Rules for the hard reset, but the episode certainly felt like he was there. You know how people said Raw had Paul Heyman’s fingerprints all over it because it involved a hardcore brawl with a big stunt spot and a random cuckolding pregnancy angle? Nothing says “Eric Bischoff” like a parking lot brawl and a worked shoot about how young wrestlers aren’t getting enough opportunities.
