Episode summary Edit

SmackDown GM Vickie Guerrero shut down Alberto Del Rio Edit

As three of WWE’s top Superstars battled it out for the right to face World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio at SummerSlam, CM Punk dazzled Fandango with the power of Straight Edge, a stunning turn of events helped decide the Divas Title Match and Damien Sandow showed Cody Rhodes the true value of ”Money.” Several weeks ago, newly crowned Raw General Manager Brad Maddox gave WWE Champion John Cena the opportunity to choose his No. 1 contender at SummerSlam, paving the way for The Champ to create a highly anticipated clash between himself and Daniel Bryan.

After SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero offered the World Heavyweight Champion the same chance, Alberto Del Rio tried to name Ricardo Rodriguez as his No. 1 contender. But, The Queen Diva swiftly rejected the titleholder’s feeble attempt at a summer siesta – instead creating an explosive blue brand Triple Threat Match to determine his SummerSlam opponent: RVD vs. Randy Orton vs. Christian for later in the night!

CM Punk vs Fandango Edit

Though Fandango proved himself a truly vicious virtuoso in a tough match against CM Punk, it was The Second City Saint who would offer a Straight Edge stomping, following up a superplex with the Anaconda Vice for the submission victory.

AJ Lee vs Kaitlyn Edit

Four days after  Kaitlyn overcame AJ Lee with an earth-shattering Spear on Raw for a huge non-title win, the “Hybrid Diva” looked to reclaim the Divas Championship on SmackDown in her hometown of Houston.

However, when the action spilled outside the ring, the observing Layla suddenly jumped out of Kaitlyn’s corner and blocked the powerful Diva’s attack. That momentary pause allowed a recovering AJ to slam her stunned opponent into the ring barrier before making her tap out inside the ring with the Black Widow.

Results Edit

  • Singles Match: CM Punk defeated Fandango (w/ Summer Rae
  • Singles Match for the WWE Diva's Championship: AJ Lee (c) defeated Kaitlyn (w/ Layla)
