WWE Friday Night Smackdown 8/2/13…CM Punk Vs Faaaaandaaaangooooo

Tonight, we are in Houston, Texas with Michael Cole, and Alex Riley, filling in for JBL. We will see CM Punk go one on one with Fandango. We will also see a Divas Title match with AJ Lee Vs Kaitlyn.

But first, our World Heavyweight Champion, Alberto Del Rio makes his way to the ring.

He is here to make his choice for his Summerslam opponent. Del Rio wants to thank the fans for nothing. The fans didn’t support him as champion, and there is nothing we can do about him being World Heavyweight Champion.

He wants to thank Vickie Guerrero. John Cena was allowed to choose his opponent for Summerslam, and now Vickie allowed him to do it too.

But Cena wasted his pick by choosing that “troll” Daniel Bryan. We all know that Cena is afraid of Alberto Del Rio.

So why doesn’t he choose Brock Lesnar? Brock already has plans for Summerslam, and that’s his loss.

What about Houston’s own Booker T? But then Booker, like everything in Houston is a big disappointment.

But he has the perfect opponent for Alberto Del Rio. Which is why he is going to give him his first title shot. Ricardo Rodriguez.

Excuse Me…

Del Rio wants a hug, but Vickie does not look amused. She feels Del Rio is trying to disrespect her. Cena made his choice, and he chose Daniel Bryan, a worthy competitor. Yet Del Rio chose Ricardo?

Del Rio can choose someone different, what about The Brooklyn Brawler?

Vickie decides to switch things up a bit, Del Rio will face the winner of tonight’s main event, a Triple Threat match between Rob Van Dam Vs Christian Vs Randy Orton.

Tonight, we will see Kaitlyn Vs AJ Lee in a Divas Title match.

We will also see CM Punk face Fandango.

When we come back, we see footage with Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow.

Our first match is Cody Rhodes Vs Jack Swagger.

Zeb Colter has the mic. There are hundreds of people out there, and Cody grabs the mic, and starts the match.

Cody wins with a rollup.

A Triple Threat match to determine the Number One Contender to the World heavyweight Title. Randy Orton Vs Christian Vs RVD, tonight.

Josh Matthews is with Cody Rhodes.

Why did he throw the briefcase across the Gulf of Mexico last week. Cody doesn’t blame Damien for taking advantage of him at Money in the Bank. He is just sick of Damien talking bad about people. He was a part of Team Rhodes Scholars, but the best part of that? Is Rhodes.

Damien blindsided Cody, and we have officials checking in on Cody.

Sin Cara is headed to the ring, he is going to face Big E. Langston.

Really?

Big Ending, match is over.

Ziggler was watching on, not sure if he was impressed, but I was.

Tonight, Divas Title match between Kaitlyn Vs AJ Lee.

Also tonight, CM Punk Vs Fandango.

“Reach for the Stars” by Major Lazer ft. Wyclef Jean is the official theme song for Summerslam.

Wyatt Family video is playing.

Follow The Buzzards.

Ranee Young is with Kaitlyn and Layla. Kaitlyn is ready for her match this time. She is born and raised in Houston, Texas. This was the building she won the Divas Title, and tonight history will be repeated.

Layla tells her that she is the hardest working diva, and she gives her a big hug.

Vickie is with Del Rio. Del Rio believes that Vickie took back her word about Summerslam. Vickie believes that Del Rio is afraid of a little competition.

Brad Maddox comes in, he wants to talk with Vickie. Del Rio asks him who he thinks he is, and he answers he is the Raw General Manager, and he will be under his jurisdiction this Monday night.

CM Punk Vs Fandango, now.

Punk wins the match with a Superplex combined into an Anaconda Vice, making Fandango tap out.

We see earlier tonight, Del Rio made his choice of facing Ricardo Rodriguez at Summerslam. Vickie did not like that, and made tonight’s main event a Triple Threat match to determine the Number One Contender.

It will be RVD Vs Christian Vs Rand Orton.

Ranee Young is with the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion RVD. He is ready for his opponents, but let’s face it, they are not RVD.

Here comes Christian, another former TNA World Heavyweight Champion. He said that some things are the same, and some others are not, and everyone knows he needs one more….

Orton interrupts and says he has a present for Rob, and that is a RKO.

Rob says there will only be one winner….RVD.

They all square off when we go to a commercial.

We are in Houston, Texas tonight. Our next match is for the Divas Title, it will be Kaitlyn Vs AJ Lee, with Layla accompanying Kaitlyn to the ring.

Brad Maddox and Vickie have agreed that moving forward, Big E. will not accompany AJ to the ring anymore.

AJ wins the match by a Black Widow. Layla turned on Kaitlyn when the challenger was beating up AJ pretty well, using her brute strength, Layla stood in the way, allowing the champion to get a cheap shot, then the victory.

AJ and Layla skipped together out of ringside, so Layla turned heel.

Raw Rebound, featuring the respect of the WWE Title.

Our main event is up now, Triple Threat match to determine the Number One Contender to the World Heavyweight Title.

Randy Orton Vs Christian Vs RVD.

Alberto Del Rio comes out to say be careful what you ask for, because at Summerslam, one of them will tap out to the World Heavyweight Champion, Alberto Del Rio.

Christian wins the match with a back slide, countering a RKO, and pinning Randy Orton.

Christian is going to Summerslam.

Orton looked like he was going to attack Christian, but he shook his hand instead.

The show ends with Christian getting one more match.

RVD shakes Christian’s hand now too.

Josh Matthews is in the ring, asking Christian how he feels. He is starting to talk, but Alberto Del Rio attacks Christian from behind, and kicks him in the head, and this is how we end our show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A very strong show this week that featured an incredible main event. I am also glad that Del Rio isn’t selecting his opponent, because this way, it means that both shows, or in this term, both General Managers are running their shows separate. At times in recent years, if Raw did something, Smackdown had to do the very same thing. So they did this differently, and I like Christian Vs Del Rio.

I don’t have any answer for Layla turning on Kaitlyn, it certainly didn’t have the long-term effect like it should have. since Layla had only been aligned with Kaitlyn for what, two months? So she turns on Kaitlyn, and aligns herself with the Divas Champion, and not just go after the Divas Champion?

Does that make sense?

I love hearing Alex Riley tonight, he did a good job on commentary, and I hope to see a 3 man team on Smackdown when JBL comes back. Why not?

We are 2 weeks away from Summerslam, so it’s ti to set in gear the rest of the action for the PPV. What is Orton going to do? How about RVD? Is the IC Title on the line? We know The Miz will be the official host, but know nothing else about that, so starting this Monday, let’s see the rest in gear.

What did you think of the show? Send me your thoughts here.
