With Riley Ross
Welcome back to Riley’s Corner where I breakdown each segment and matches on SmackDown. We are on the road to SummerSlam and it’s looking like it’s going to be one helluva PPV. On commentary we have Michael Cole and oh shit JBL. Come back to commentary Alex Riley, I will cook dinner for you and iron your clothes. Just please stop JBL from talking. On tonight’s lineup we have Randy Orton facing RVD, we get to see another dose of Miz TV, and Kofi Kingston takes on Fandango. So grab a bottle of water, sit down and read all about SmackDown. *Disclaimer* There is foul language in here so don’t read the Brock Lesnar paragraph if you are easily offended. I say what is on my mind and I don’t have a filter.

The MizTV segment with AJ and Big E Langston is up next. A recap of Big E’s match with Dolph Ziggler is shown and how Kaitlyn interferes. Miz asks what the relationship is between Big E and AJ. She says that Big E is there for her as a friend. She then calls Big E her best friend. Miz is condescending to Big E as he says cool.

She gently reminds him that he screwed her over when she allowed him to choose his opponent for SummerSlam. She calls his attack on Ricardo despicable.

Bray Wyatt shows up on the Titantron chanting Ring of Fire. You see Harper and Rowan standing behind him. Wyatt goes on to say that he likes that kind of match that Kane has arranged.

*Disclaimer: Don’t read this paragraph if you are easily offended. Don’t say I didn’t warn you* Brock Lesnar cuts a promo on his match with CM Punk. He says that it is personal between the two and that he has never liked Punk and that he has let Punk exist this long out of respect for Heyman. Dude don’t even speak you sound like you have your wife’s balls in your mouth. Brock when I look at you I don’t see a beast or the best, I see a bitter little bitch who needs to fucking go away. We don’t see Punk curled up in a little ball crying like a broken little bitch crying because you got punched in the stomach and lost your UFC matches. People say that your health issues are serious, if they are so serious why is he still wrestling? Shouldn’t he retire and take up a less dangerous hobby like knitting. Oh wait, he would probably stab himself in the eye with a knitting needle. GO HOME BROCK, you are nothing more than a whiney ass bitch who should have just stayed gone. SO take your limited schedule and go fuck off. You are nothing more than a cuntasaurus. Take your disappearing eyebrows and your penchant for hopping on the apron and go home. Size won’t matter when Punk makes you tap out like the pathetic bitch that you are.

WTF moments-goes to not having the Shield on SmackDown, having JBL run his ignorant mouth and allowing Brock Lesnar to speak. You should always have the Shield on TV. JBL needs to shut the fuck up and Brock Lesnar should never be allowed to cut a promo or do an interview.
In closing, I thought SmackDown was decent. There was great buildup to the matches at SummerSlam. . I give tonight’s showing a B+. Hopefully RAW will be great too. Make sure you all check out http://www.blogtalkradio.com/live-nation-radio-network. We’ll be airing Tuesday at 10pm ET Call in at (347) 945-6363. Have a good night and a better tomorrow!
