Last week's show is here: http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/07/wwe-friday-night-smackdown-7262013.html
|"The person who will face Alberto Del Rio at Summerslam is Ricardo Rodriguez!" - Alberto Del Rio|
|"Ricardo Rodriguez? He's like a jiggly little man child. I expected more from you." - Vickie|
|"What about THE BROOKLYN BRAWLER??" - Alberto Del Rio|
Jack Swagger vs Cody Rhodes
Sin Cara vs Big E Langston
|"Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, you're gonna get speared." - Kaitlyn|
|"Who do you think you are?" - ADR | "I'm the General Manager of Raw. You'll be under my authority this Monday." - Brad|
Fandango vs CM Punk
Diva's Title - AJ Lee vs Kaitlyn
I have some mixed thoughts on this segment. Kaitlyn has been an awful face and is maybe the least over diva ever for her push, so I don't like the idea of her still being the top face. Layla was by far the best face WWE had and one of my favorite WWE wrestlers. I'd like her to get featured more, but I don't want her to turn, since she's pretty good as a face.
We had a TEN MINUTE Raw Recap. I'm telling you, the day when they just show the last hour of Raw instead of Smackdown is not far off.
#1 Contender - Christian vs Rob Van Dam vs Randy Orton
|"I'm gonna be backstage, watching, enjoying you three beating the guacamole out of each other." - Alberto Del Rio|
|"E-C-Dub! E-C-Dub!" - The fans|
Overall thoughts: I thought it was a good show, mostly due to Punk/Fandango and the three way. While the diva's match wasn't great, at least something happened and everything on this show was built up. Definitely check out the main if nothing else!
