Spoilers for this Friday’s SmackDown are in. Click ‘show’ to read:
More detailed spoilers have been added.
* Swagger walking backstage. Asks Slammaster J, Tony Atlas, and
“did you see what just happened out there?”. They start talking about Shad & JTG splitting up. Yep, bury your champ some more. Swagger then runs into Shelton. “You still work here?”. Yep bury a potential challenger some more.
* Backstage w Vickie & Simply Flawless. Enter Swagger. Vickie says that she can help him, as Smackdown Consultant, and gives him his requested mic time later.
* Straight Edge Society comes out. Punk on the mic = gold. Gallows &
Serena take the mic and put him over. Serena’s good! Punk gets on the mic and cuts an easy promo on Las Vegas as the City of Sin, and that what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas, but haunts you for the rest of your life. Or something like that. He then says he’s not giving up on saving Rey Misterio and is willing to put up his hair against Mysterios mask. On his way up the ramp, Teddy Long comes out to announce that Punk is going to face the Undertaker later tonight. Big pop.
* Simply Flawless w/ Vickie vs.
Beth Phoenix/Tiffany. Nothing special or memorable. Got heat on Vickie, Beth got the hot tag and put it away. Meh. (Source: F4WOnline.com)
Thoughts after the cut:
Earlier spoilers suggested that the Raw Divas would have some sort of presence at this show, but obviously it didn’t pan out that way. I’m fine with that–the lack of Raw Divas gives this match a better chance of breaking the 1-minute mark.
