The 800th episode of Smackdown came to us live from Grand Rapids Michigan as part of the explosive WWE week on the WWE Network.
Ryback & Rusev
Last night's Smackdown was considered to be an epic, but Monday Night on Raw the roots of a feud were planted when Ryback interrupted The Highlight Reel to stare down with Rusev.
Rusev obviously wasn't a fan of Ryback getting in his face because The Big Guy was set to go one-on-one with Mr Money in the Bank Seth Rollins last night, when he was attacked at the top of the ramp by The United States Champion and knocked to the floor.
Tom Phillips explained later that Ryback was being treated for concussion like symptoms but it is unsure as to whether or not this is a storyline injury or a real one.
Many superstars were carrying knocks from TLC on Sunday night with the likes of Luke Harper, Dolph Ziggler and Seth Rollins all bandaged up and sporting cuts and bruises.
John Cena wasn't on last night's live episode because he was selling injuries from his steel cage match the night before after he was F5'd and Curb Stomped by Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins.
Ambrose & Wyatt
That being said, Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt returned and The Lunatic Fringe looked like he was limping and selling the abuse he was put through at the hands of Bray Wyatt on Sunday night.
The festive period is a busy time for many WWE superstars but luckily there are six weeks between now and The Royal Rumble which allows time for many superstars to recover from what they put their bodies through at TLC.
WWE week does continue tonight with the pre-recorded annual Tribute to The Troops show, that will see Ambrose and Wyatt collide in a no-dq bootcamp match, which is set to be just as brutal as their TLC match just a few days ago.
Luckily WWE superstars are now off TV for almost a week so that will help some of them rest up and recover before the final Raw before Christmas next week, with guest hosts Edge and Christian.
