While last night's RAW felt like another tired rerun featuring rematch after rematch, Smackdown LIVE once again brought their A game tonight and finished out 2016 with a bang. John Cena made his highly anticipated return, new tag team champions were crowned and AJ Styles finished off arguably the greatest debut year in WWE history in style(s).
