SmackDown Redux (August 10th, 2012): Who Will Be Booker’s Next Top Assistant?

While we didn’t get a Divas match this week on the blue brand, we got a backstage segment and an announcement for a match next week.

Everyone’s favorite former executive administrative assistant, Eve Torres approaches the new SmackDown GM, Booker T, looking to get a spot in his new administration. Unfortunately for Eve, Teddy Long has referred NXT 3 winner Kaitlyn for the job. Check out the segment below:

I know it’s not much, but when is the last time we had some build for a Divas match? Also, it’s good to see underutilized Divas, such as Kaitlyn get a chance to shine. Hopefully, this will lead to a rivalry on SmackDown between Eve and Kaitlyn and not just a one-off match between the two. Both of these Divas have improved leaps and bounds since their debuts in the WWE, and it’ll be interesting to see if they can put on an entertaining program, both inside and outside of the ring.

That wasn’t all, as Raw General Manager AJ Lee made a special excursion to Friday Night SmackDown as the guest of new GM, Booker T.

AJ used the opportunity to continue to mess with her one-time fiancé, Daniel Bryan. Check it out:

And be sure to check out the cougar herself, Vickie Guerrero, on the Highlight Reel with Chris Jericho:
