Backstage News on The McMahon Family Storyline, Matches for Tonight’s SmackDown, HHH-Axel

– WWE taped the following matches for tonight’s SmackDown:

* Sheamus vs. Cody Rhodes

* Chris Jericho vs. Alberto Del Rio

* Wade Barrett vs. Curtis Axel for the Intercontinental Title

* Natalya vs. AJ Lee

* Christian vs. Drew McIntyre

* Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton

– No word yet where WWE is going with the McMahon family storyline with Triple H, Vince McMahon and Stephanie McMahon but the feeling is that it will end with Triple H taking all power from Vince, at least in the storylines. The storyline is being heavily featured because the USA Network sent word to WWE that they wanted more of the McMahons on TV.

Regarding Triple H vs. Curtis Axel, it appears the idea of doing that match again has been dropped. It was once scheduled for SummerSlam and believe it or not, was scheduled as the RAW main event this past Monday at one point in the script.

    McMahons = Ratings people wanting to watch. Do you really watch full 3hrs of show?

  • Pewp

    Super Cena will hold the belt until he loses it to Triple H.

    How did you get that from them wanting to see more McMahons on t.v.?

    in other words USA is telling Vince to go back to a 2hr raw in a nice way
