Last week's show is here: http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/08/wwe-friday-night-smackdown-8232013_23.html
I did a podcast on this show here:
|"I want you to watch every single thing that happens in this ring tonight and I want you to do absolutely nothing about it." - Triple H|
|"Now run along and go get in your chair. Go." - Triple H|
Triple H sent Dolph off and told Miz, he'd have his match now.
WWE Title - Randy Orton vs The Miz
|"You know what you were out there? You were a bully. You bullied Orton and The Shield." - Vickie | "In my world, he who bullies, gets bullied back." - Vickie|
|"If there's one thing the big guy can't stand, it's a bully. See ya out there, shrimp." - Ryback|
They made DB vs Ryback indirectly.
|"Ladies and Gentlemen in the amazing city of Las Vegas, there are many terrific shows, but there is only one that you should be happy to be apart of and that's the Whole Damn Show, Rob Van Dam." - Ricardo Rodriguez|
Rob Van Dam vs Damien Sandow
|"RVD, just remember this - when you sleep with that dog, you get flea's." - Alberto Del Rio|
The Shield vs Dolph Ziggler
Curtis Axel and Paul Heyman came out.
|"I'm not sorry for my actions. You voted me into a situation where I had to face a beating from CM Punk. What did you expect me to do? Did you think for one second I was going to take my beating like a man?" - Paul Heyman|
|"At Night of Champions, Curtis Axel and I will own CM Punk." - Paul Heyman|
ProWresBlog Title - Daniel Bryan vs Ryback
I did not like The Big Show's angle one bit. I can't buy it at all. WWE tried to play this as Big Show needing to not do anything so he could keep his job. NEWS FLASH, THE BIG SHOW IS RICH. HE COULD RETIRE TOMORROW AND BE BETTER OFF THAN ALL OF US. Show also looked like such a sissy the whole night. He basically cried near the end and really got punked. Yeah, Show has been portrayed as a wuss at times, but this was pretty bad. He never got his heat back either which made it worse.
They also spent too much time on The Big Show. He was the focus for 3 matches with 10-15 cut away's per match which was way too much.
Overall thoughts: I hated this show. This whole episode revolved around watching The Big Show make faces then look like the world's biggest wuss at the end of the night. The matches were mostly all squashes and were all too fast to be anything good. This was a lazy show and it wasn't very good.
