Dark Match:

* Triple H opens the show and announces he re-signed CM Punk to a WWE contract. Christian comes out and it’s announced he will defend the World Heavyweight Title against Randy Orton in a No Holds Barred match at SummerSlam.

* R-Truth beat Randy Orton by DQ when Orton used a chair as Christian watched the match from the ramp. After the match, Orton hit the RKO on Truth, putting him through the announcer’s table.

  • Orton vs Christian:
    I think the feud is good, it isn’t great or bad, and the matches have been great! No Holds Barred will give these matches a twist…

    Ryder as an assistant:
    I like the idea, I don’t like Teddy’s style, Ryder will give to SD the twist that the show needs!

    About YOU guys:
    You keep complaining about the WWE, about any single thing that happens, i want to see you in charge of a company with 70 workers, and 4 shows every week…

  • pat

    is it where i download smackdown from that they show shit from the “vault” ?? and if its everyware, why are they doing it insted of matches? like WTF??? does anyone know?


    this is why smackdown’s ratings are so low because everyone comes on here reads the spoilers and the show is ruined for surprise. if it was live smackdown would be a better show.

    but christian and randy orton again? they need people to come out their shells and step it up

  • Sexton Hardcastle

    I aint sayin….Im Just sayin

  • Sexton Hardcastle


    Agreed, but sadly I doubt they will end it here. Prolly drag it out till hell in a cell.

    Speaking of hell in a cell; Why have we not seen another 6 man hell in a cell match since that ARMAGEDDON?

  • venom

    I know people are getting sick of this whole Orton and Christian storyline, but Christian will retain at Summer Slam and the feud should be over. I think this feud has been great.

  • Stumpy

    So basically… the lines of the brands are blurring(it’s about time), Sheamus is making his face turn (they will probably bury him), DB gets a push against a bigger man (who is getting pushed to jobber status), Ryder is demoted to an assistant (better than the internet I guess), Jinder Mahal and Khali remain boring (as apathy creeps in), and zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz oh sorry, another Christian/Orton title match is set for Summerslam zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

    NWA, TNA, Impact Wrestling (or whatever it is called these days) has a title for every Impact show on Thursdays. If Smackdown did the same thing, the title for this show would be, “The More Things Change, The More They Stay the Same.”


    Looks like a face turn for Sheamus and a heel turn for Orton.

    Oh Well….

  • DaFinalC

    Why watch Smackdown, when I can read the spoilers. Might tune in to see Bryan Danielson wrestle. Good to see ROH guys show their stuff in the WWF

  • Simon

    @D Stands for Douche

    I have two words for you: Chris Benoit. The reason he was pushed was due to his talent. Did people watch him for his mic skills? Hell no, he was one of the worst on the mic. Mic skills are useful for getting over with the crowd, but are not a nessecity. Afterall, they put the title on Kahli too, and he bearly speaks any english. They’re bound to put the title on Sin Cara sometime, and his whole gimmick so far is that he is masked and doesnt speak. Why do you need to speak to get over with the crowd, if your already over?Id prefer watching Bryan wrestling for 10 minutes, then listening to Cena talk for the same amount of time.

  • sandman

    i hope they keep having aj lee losing to divas that cant wrestle and give her the divas title

  • Zack Ryder

    hopefully jericho comes back soon so we can see cm punk vs jericho again

  • Elizabeth

    Jericho is the best in the world at what he does,Punk took his line

  • Jimbo

    1.) Yay! Christian can be champion until at least SummerSlam!

    2.) What the hell are they doing with Ryder? He’s supposed to be wrestling, not being the GM’s assistant. We want to see him compete, damn it!!!


    im not a cena hater but everybody is tired of seeing cena with tha belt tha have talent on both rosters but just no tusing them. When is barret and sheamus gon get the title dont get me wrong im a peep and always a peep.rey was cheated tha need guys n tha mainevent[john morrison,rtruth,rey,dolph zigger,kofi,drew,jack,alex riley chris masters big show ,evan borne{sheamus,wade,mark,cody,ted,tyson,cara,khalli,kane zack ryder}de rio and daniel got the suitcases give these others guys push 2 tha main event god damn summerslam right around the cornor woo woo i like kelly kelly we need some women that can actually wrestle after she lose the title usos 4 tag team champions

  • adam

    No read the shirt CM Punk is the best in the world. Orton is entertaing. But he is an average wrestler at best. Decent on the mic when he is a heel when he is a face he is boring as shit on the mic. Also he needs to cut that beard off cause it isnt workin for him.

  • Elizabeth

    Randy is the best- everyone needs to get over it

  • Pissed Off Fan :(

    Maybe wwe is trying to slowly end the brand thing and sooner than later well see the wwe like it was before the draft in 2002?

  • adam

    @elizabeth. I will never ask for cena to be back. Orton maybe because i do like him but i hate how wwe is making him the next cena were no matter what he is always champion. I mean orton hasnt lost a match clean in over a year i mean whats the point of having people do a rivalry with him except to bury that person.

  • knightcon

    I agree they blew the punk storyline. Cena and punk should end in a dq or double countout and then del rio should get the other WWE title setting up for mania and btw bryan darilson is a great wrestler stuck in a boring gimic. Him and punk are the best wrestlers in the WWE right now. Funny they both came from ROH lol

  • uncle farker

    Cm punk.rules WWE will butch it.though like everything else they do

  • RJ

    @D Stands for Douche bryan is getting a push cuz hes one of the best wrestlers alive and has been busting his ass in this business for years. ever heard of the american dragon?

  • Elizabeth

    Fifteen yrs from now when Orton And Cena are retired yall will be wanting them back,when new guys have taken over you will be sayin I miss the good ole days when Orton and Cena were here I Love Randy!!

  • d

    considering that cmpunk got a bigger ovation then cena last night and has been for weeks you’d think creative would keep the title on punk for a bit. punk vs del rio would be a great match

  • adam

    Thats because no matter who is in charge wwe cant not have cena be the center of the universe same with orton. Thats why orton vs christian will go on forever. Thats also we cena will eventually destroy punk and cena and orton will be the world champs going into wrestlmania. Hell why not give them the tag team championships as well and the IC and US i mean thats all you wants is orton and cena at the top of the world.


    all u pieces of shit on here do is bitch and complain and u never kno how to shut your damn mouth!

  • Kal

    wow….way to fuck up what could have been the most epic story line in years.

    I would have liked Raw without a champion. CM Punk could have easily made outside TV appearances for weeks before returning.

    So Cena wins at Summerslam and the last month was for nothing.

  • D Stands for Douche

    So we, as fans, are supposed to believe that nerd boy Bryan could actually stand a chance against a guy like Barrett? Good lord, I’m bored already and I haven’t even see it yet. Bryan has about as much personality as a stone. Actually, its probably more interesting talking to the stone. Why he is getting a push is beyond me…maybe he should learn how to talk on a mic before being given a major push.

  • adam

    @josh i think this is more to help out smackdown. Because with how much attention zach ryder has they might want to see if it translates to ratings for smackdown. Also i think the brand extension is done because all these raw people are on smackdown now. They will unite the two titles then cena will be undisputed champion. But if they were smart they would give that to punk but wont. But they can also stick with the 2 sepearte world titles since there are the 2 money in the bank winners still.

  • TheMark

    Moved to Smackdown lol. Oh well, he was never going to get much airtime on Raw anyways…

  • Zack Ryder

    woo woo woo you know it!

  • josh

    SO Ryder moves to smackdown, a show few watch? How’s that going to help him get over with fans

  • Simon

    Better then Orton/Cena though, least it hasnt been done over and over and rehashed over so many years.

  • Bryan

    How many damn times are we going to be subjected to Orton-Christian?
