*Spoilers* WWE SmackDown Tapings – August 5th

– Thanks to Fred W. for the following WWE SmackDown spoilers from tonight’s tapings in Lexington, Kentucky. These will air this Friday, August 5th, on SyFy:

Dark Match:

* Wade Barrett beat Colt Cabana

SmackDown, Airing Friday:

* Sheamus vs. Mark Henry is announced for SummerSlam and Sheamus vs. The Great Khali is announced for tonight.

* Sheamus beat The Great Khali.

* Natalya beat AJ Lee and turned heel.

* Daniel Bryan debuts a new theme song before facing Tyson Kidd.

* Zack Ryder brings out WWE Intercontinental Champion Ezekiel Jackson but is interrupted by Ted DiBiase and Cody Rhodes. Teddy Long interrupts them and announces Ryder vs. Zeke.

* Main event time with Randy Orton and John Morrison vs. Christian and R-Truth. Truth and Christian get the win after Christian pins Orton.

    even though it was short the AJ/Natalya match was actually pretty good.

  • Dystre Fjell

    @BATEZY Exactly, I wondered why that name rang a bell, it became clear when he mentionned assistant TO the general manager. Hahaha, good one !

  • adam

    It seems like it can be an ok show. I doubt ryders name change is for real its probably just a joke. Like ryder will probably say he is hte assistant general manager then someone will say assistant to the general manager. As for Sheamus i like the face turn he was a good heel but i think he will be a better face. Also @KitKrock its not tna alum they were both in wwe before they were in tna. Hopefully bryan’s music is final countdown or something cool like that. I was soooooo sick of his old music i was actuall sick of it the second he debuted it.

  • venom

    It’s funny how people are already saying this is a horrible show and it airs on Friday.

  • Mike

    its amazing how may people on here cant spell sheamus properly.

    And dont complain about Zack Ryder getting his butt kicked because atleast he is on two shows

  • Pissed Off Fan =(

    Still though, kickin Ryders ass has to lead to something.. Plus I think with Coly in tje picture hell help Punk beat Cena at SS

  • Blaine

    Guys, I was there and I’m sure the whole Ryder/HHH thing was just done for the crowd.

    It looked like the cameras were legitimately cut so unless some part of that actually airs on Friday, I’d just ignore it.


    @me Dwight Schrut is a charecter from the show the office, i think theyre making a joke because on the show he is his boss,s assistany lol

  • me

    anyone else completly confused about ryders so called name change and hhh pedigreeing him with the camera’s off? i don’t get it.

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    Utimate Borton is boring and worse than Cena right now. You can call each of his matches move by move and is being shoved down our throats more than Super Cena has been. Not to mention he has the personality of a cracker.

  • Will Henderson

    i wonder if this week’s double heel turn storyline with Beth and Natalya turning on Kelly Kelly and AJ was based on the ODB/Jackie vs. Velvet Sky feud in TNA.

    i swear i’m seeing this angle losely based on that angle in TNA.

  • The real wrestling god

    My friend went to the show and told me it was actually pretty good.

  • Greatness


    Orton is awesome and one of the best performers in the WWE today, wtf are you talking about?

  • Jimbo

    Looking forward to Christian and R-Truth teaming up.

  • KitKrock

    Trippy H HATES Zach Ryder. He never wanted him to be on TV but had to put him on because He knows its a good business decision to get the ratings. However, after the cameras are cut he’ll pedigree Zach Ryder back to jobberville.



  • Dystre Fjell

    Setting Ryder to team up with Punk and a rebel faction against HHH…
    If not, then WHAT THE FUCK indeed…

  • Jimbo

    Uhhh….what in the fucking fuck are they doing to Zack Ryder?

  • RJ

    why would triple h hit ryder with a pedigree?

  • Jon

    The real question, is this a Colt Cabana come back, if so finally.

  • hjk

    No I used to love sheumus as heal… i think its a terrible idea tu put ir as a face!!! by the way suck ass show!!

  • PLW

    Natalya Heel Turn? WWE divas division is actually looking good. I hope they don’t drop the ball. I can a Alicia face turn happen pretty soon!

  • xcxvx

    This sounds like a terrible episode.

  • Controversy = Cash

    Shaemus face turn??? 😀

  • TheMark

    Ryder’s gone from zero TV time to being on both shows… lol

  • Damien Phoenix

    Or at least a remix of Final Countdown

  • Daniel_Bryan_fan

    im expecting it to be a generic theme- a decent on nonetheless
    would be great if he had Final countdown back 😀

  • Have Bryan come out to the Final Countdown at WrestleMania! I’ll reserve judgment for Bryan’s new theme until I hear it. At least those complaining about Ride of the Valkries will stop now.

  • Damien Phoenix

    Another diva heel turn?
