Smackdown Spoilers: August 10th
Lilian Garcia introduced the show, sang the National Anthem, and said they are sold out tonight.
Highlight Reel: Jericho started to introduce the segment, but Vickie interrupted. She said she is here to speak on Dolph’s behalf tonight. Jericho said he’s flexible and he can interview Dolph’s mother. Vickie vowed to leave this show if he offers one more insult. Jericho comically told her to go ahead and leave, but then brought her back. Jericho rolled footage of Ziggler losing to Alex Riley on Raw, then tried to knock Ziggler for losing to Riley, but then tried to prop up Riley as a legit star. Vickie had enough and suggested Ziggler will face Jericho at Summerslam. Jericho got serious and said Ziggler got him thinking, so he’s bringing back Y2J. He then accepted the PPV match. Suddenly, Ziggler came through the crowd to attack Jericho from behind and KO him with the MITB briefcase.
Backstage, Eve asked Booker for a job, but he turned her down again. Kaitlyn then asked for a job per Teddy Long and Booker accepted. Eve said that’s not fair and threatened legal action, so Booker scheduled Eve vs. Kaitlyn for next week to determine his assistant.
Daniel Bryan came out to a huge reaction of Yes! chants in his face. Bryan’s gimmick was way over and the most popular part of WWE programming during the night. Bryan, after being barraged by Yes! chants, squatted down in the ring to sell he was overwhelmed by the loud noises. Bryan called out A.J., but Kane interrupted to set up their Summerslam match. Suddenly, A.J. came out as Booker’s special guest tonight. A.J. moved along to Kane and thanked him for treating her well. A.J. either forget her lines or was really stretching things out by twisting her head to the left and right, which lost the crowd. She then told Bryan to prove he doesn’t have anger management issues and that he is a good sport. He can do that by shaking Kane’s hand. Bryan shouted, “No!” A.J. then talked down to Bryan, who eventually extended his hand, but Kane blasted him. A fight broke out before Bryan ran away into the crowd. On-stage, A.J. knelt down and laughed like a crazy person before Kane shot off his pyro in the ring.
Suddenly, A.J.’s music played again. She just skipped out, skipped around the ring, and disappeared to the back. Either a re-tape or they wanted to get across to the crowd that A.J. is still nuts.
