Episode summary Edit
Triple H held an open forum for all WWE Superstars and Divas Edit
After WWE COO Triple H engaged in a heart-to-heart with an alarmed locker room, RVD battled the “Face of WWE,” AJ Lee showed how dangerous beauty can be and Daniel Bryan overcame The Hounds of Justice both inside and outside the ring.
Triple H opened SmackDown, explaining that, in essence, “Cody Rhodes fired Cody Rhodes” on Raw by showing disrespect and insubordination towards the office of COO, the WWE Universe and to his fellow Superstars – before failing to do his job by losing to WWE Champion Randy Orton.
To deal with the issue of Superstars and Divas who might have problems with the way business in WWE is being done, The Game presented anopen forum, inviting any and all to the top of the ramp to speak their minds.
While Damien Sandow’s comments were dismissed as kissing up to the COO, the 13-time World Champion listened to the concerns of Kofi Kingston, Rob Van Damn, Heath Slater and Ryback. He then rewarded their words with a series of matches: Ryback vs. Dolph Ziggler; Kingston vs. Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel and RVD vs. WWE Champion Randy Orton.
In addition – pointing out Daniel Bryan’s absence during the forum (a meeting Bryan later claimed he was told he wasn’t invited to) – The King of Kings offered the submission specialist a one-on-one match against any member of The Shield.
Naomi vs Brie Bella Edit
Prior to Naomi’s match against fellow “Total Divas” star Brie Bella, Divas Champion AJ Lee talked her way into a loose alliance with Alicia Fox, Layla and Aksana – convincing her fellow femmes fatales that the E! Network stars were trying to put themselves above the rest.
And it soon became very apparent what that grouping would mean, as the titleholder led her fired-up cohorts to the ring to take out both the Funkadactyls and The Bella Twins in a vicious sneak attack!
As the smoke cleared, AJ reaffirmed herself as the Divas Champion!
