- Tonight’s WWE SmackDown will air live on SyFy at 8pm EST from the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas. Tonight’s show will have a Great American Bash theme to it. Confirmed is a 20-man battle royal with Superstars like WWE Champion CM Punk, World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus, John Cena, Big Show, Alberto Del Rio, Kane, Chris Jericho and others. The winner will get to be the General Manager for SmackDown next week.
WWE will also hold more Money in the Bank qualifying matches tonight and acting General Manager Teddy Long has booked WWE Divas Champion Layla and The Great Khali vs. Aksana and Antonio Cesaro. Advertised locally is John Cena vs. Big Show and John Laurinaitis.
WWE is focusing on the following points for tonight’s show:
* Teddy Long’s return to SmackDown in power. Will he get retribution for being embarrassed during the John Laurinaitis era?
* Will an up and coming star qualify for Money in the Bank?
* What weight will Cody Rhodes’ Money in the Bank protest carry with the WWE Board of Directors?
* Dolph Ziggler will be out to redeem himself after losing with Vickie Guerrero to AJ Lee and Sheamus on RAW
