WWE Friday Night Smackdown 8/9/2013 Results and Review

WWE Friday Night Smackdown 8/9/2013 Results and Review

Last week's show is here:


Randy Orton vs Rob Van Dam

Randy Orton won after RVD missed a frogsplash. This was a great match that came out of nowhere. They were super stiff with each other with RVD kicking Orton's head off and then Orton responding with a vicious neckbreaker over his back. Orton then later countered an RVD springboard with a dropkick. The crowd loved, the announcers loved it, I loved it and you will too. Rating:***1/2


Miz asked AJ what was going on with her and E and she said they were just friends. AJ said her past friends and lovers all turned on her and tricked her. AJ said the diva's title would keep her warm at night.
AJ mentioned Dolph, so Dolph came down.

AJ said Dolph was mad that he couldn't touch her anymore and Kaitlyn came down.

"He can't touch you, but I can." - Kaitlyn
Dolph said AJ and crew were obsessed with him. Miz then said that since he is the host of Summerslam, he can do anything. He signed AJ Lee and Big E Langston vs Dolph Ziggler and Kaitlyn for Summerslam.
"I can't wait to slap the crazy right off your face." - Kaitlyn
We then had a quick brawl with the faces taking down the heels.

We then got an 11 minute Raw Recap.

ADR was complaining about tonight's match with Christian.
Vickie said she made it because she didn't like ADR's actions towards Christian.

Fandango vs Kofi Kingston

Fandango won with the top rope legdrop. This wasn't that great. Kofi isn't the same Kofi he was before and the pants make him look like an indy geek. Kofi did take a nasty header into the post though.

DB said he wouldn't change to make it in the WWE but he'd keep the beard and Cena didn't know what he was talking about.

Daniel Bryan vs Wade Barrett

Wade Barrett's beard was shaved. He still has some shadow over top of his lip though.
Wade Barrett brought hair clippers to ringside.

Daniel Bryan won with a Yes Lock in a very quick match. The crowd was super hot for DB and during the match, Wade went for the hair clippers and didn't get them. They fought over it then DB took control from there to win it.

Damien Sandow was interviewed by Renee Young.
"Behold, the new, the improved, Sandow-ized Money in the Bank briefcase." - Damien Sandow
Damien Sandow had a new Money in the Bank briefcase. He didn't say what it was made of or anything but he did say he got a new MITB contract in there and would come after ADR.

Kane vs 3MB
Cole explained the Ring of Fire match. He said there would be a ring of fire around the ring to keep anyone from entering or exiting.

Kane got the win with a chokeslam on Jinder in a quick squash. The highlight here was Kane throwing Heath Slater.

"Wanna hear a secret, Kane? I am already dead." - Bray Wyatt

Bray did his usual mumbo jumbo about whatever he was talking about and Kane hit the fire on the posts.

Brock Lesnar Interview

"Look at him and look at me. I see a joke." - Brock Lesnar on CM Punk
Brock said he never liked Punk. Brock said he didn't beat up Punk before because of respect for Paul.

"Punk thinks just because he tapes his hands and has a bunch of tattoos and takes MMA classes for beginners at his local gym that he is a tough guy. Well, he's not." - Brock Lesnar
"People say there's professional jealousy between me and CM Punk. What do I have to be jealous of? Was Punk a NCAA Division 1 Heavyweight Champion?" - Brock Lesnar
"I was the Undisputed Champion back when CM Punk was wrestling for 100 people in high school gyms." - Brock Lesnar
"CM Punk has never faced anybody in his entire life like me, because there is nobody like me. Size does matter." - Brock Lesnar
Brock said Punk would know what it feels like to be victimized by Brock Lesnar.

Alberto Del Rio vs Christian

They said there was no word on if Ricardo Rodriguez would return or not.

The fans chanted USA, even though neither wrestler is from USA.

Christian won with a surprise roll-up. This was a great match. They took some nasty bumps with both men going off the top to the floor and Alberto's hurricanrana bump had to suck. Christian also did a nasty dive to the rails. The crowd liked it and they busted out some different stuff from usual, which made this especially good. I was surprised by how far these two went out and liked it. Rating:***1/2

ADR flipped out after and ended up eating a Killswitch when he came in the ring.

Damien Sandow went to cash in after and Cody Rhodes stopped it to end the show.

Overall thoughts:
Good show with two great matches. I really recommend going out of your way to see the top two as they are worth it. Brock's interview was good too.
