7/25 WWE Smackdown taping spoilers: A second report on the taping for the August 2 edition (spoilers)
Jul 25, 2013 - 11:49 PM


WWE Smackdown taping
Houston, Texas
Report by Dot Net reader Louie Urista


Alex Riley and Michael Cole were on commentary.

Alberto Del rio came out and thanked everybody for nothing. He criticized the crowd for not supporting him as champion and said Vickie Guerrero will let him choose his SummerSlam opponent like Brad Maddox let John Cena. After a drum roll, he chose Ricardo Rodriguez. Vickie came out and didn't allow it. She announced a Triple Threat match between Rob Van Dam, Randy Orton, and Christian that would determine Del Rio's SummerSlam opponent. 

Highlights aired of Cody Rhodes throwing Damien Sandow's briefcase into the Gulf of Mexico. 

1. Cody Rhodes pinned Jack Swagger (w/Zeb Colter). Before the match, Zeb cut a promo about Sam Houston being disgusted if he saw what kind of people were outside the Toyota Center. The promo was cut short when Cody knocked mic out of his hand.  Rhodes won a very short match with a roll up. 

Josh Matthews interviewed Cody backstage about throwing Sandow's briefcase into the Gulf of Mexico. Cody said he is tired of Sandow's arrogance and Sandow talking down to him. Sandow ended the interview by attacking Cody. 

2. Big E Langston pinned Sin Cara. Big E won with The Big Ending. 

Kaitlyn cut a promo in which she spoke about being from Houston and winning the Divas Title in Houston. Layla spoke about Kaitlyn being the real deal. It was an awkward exchange. 

3. C.M. Punk defeated Fandango via submission. There were lots of 'C.M. Punk' chants and "you can't wrestle" chants for Fandango. Punk sold a hurt right arm throughout the match. A superplex into the Anaconda Vice ended the match. 

Rob Van Dam was interviewed backstage by Renee Young. He was interrupted by Christian and Randy Orton. They all stated that they would win the Triple Threat.

4. A.J. Lee defeated Kaitlyn (w/Layla) via submission to retain the Divas Championship. During the match, Layla kept Kaitlyn from attacking A.J. outside the ring. After the match, Layla skipped out with A.J. 

There was a video package on Booker T since it was "Booker T Day" in Houston. 

There was a video package announcing the TLC pay-per-view for Houston on December 15. 

5. Christian defeated Rob Van Dam and Randy Orton in a Triple Threat to become the No. 1 contender to the World Hvt. Championship. Christian entered to no reaction. He pandered to the Houston crowd and claimed he's walking out the No. 1 contender, which led to him getting booed. RVD entered to a loud pop. Del Rio came out and said he's going to enjoy watching the three stooges beat the guacamole out of each other. Christian ended up pinning Orton to become No. 1 contender. The finish came after Orton RKO'd Van Dam. Christian used a backslide pin for the win. 

After the match, Del Rio attacked Christian while he's being interviewed by Josh Matthews. Del Rio kicked Christian in the face and laid the championship belt over his head. (Show ends here I think). 

Del Rio took off Sign Guy's red hat and threw it further into the crowd. Dolph's music hit and Lilian announced a street fight for the title. 

Dark Main Event

1. Alberto Del Rio beat Dolph Ziggler in a Street Fight to retain the World Hvt. Championship. Del Rio pinned Ziggler after throwing him into a chair lodged in the corner. Del Rio told the 'gringos' and 'mojados' ("illegals" to be pc) that it isn't over until he says it is. He grabbed a chair and went for Dolph, who avoided it and hits the Zig Zag to end the show.
