    if this happens y2j vs sheamus at summer slam, i can almost guarantee y2j winning and ziggler cashing in

    ^your probably right…jericho’s going on a break/band tour after this right? wonder if they will write him out with an injury or something since his last absence was due to suspension and they didnt say why i think…

  • http://wrestlenewz.com Pokemon

    unless they go with 2 triple threat title matches…they wont go with del rio missing another ppv match would they?

  • Chelsii.

    He was suspended because some people were offended because he was doing his job.

  • Jimmy

    So Miz wins the Intercontinental Championship, and now he’s losing every single match he has. Is WWE still pissed at him for the lack of Survivor Series buys or something?

  • Jay

    They said they are going to have a battle royal to see who become the #1 contender

  • Raphael

    Glad Hawkins and Reks were on SmackDown, even looking like two strippers, because looks doesn’t matter when you are talented, but not only is Justin Gabriel talented, he is also the best looking male wrestler in the WWE (no homo).

  • Raphael

    Y2J was suspended because he kicked the brazillian flag.
    I was there, I’m brazillian and I wasn’t offended. He was playing his f’n role for Christ sakes, but here in Brazil, disrespecting the flag can give you 15 years of jail.

  • Raphael

    Appareantly, I have two haters.

  • jerichoholic3

    weres the rest of the spoilers?

  • RCmaster305

    “Tyler Reks and Curt Hawkins come out with a new look, something like a male stripper” *holds head in shame*

  • http://wrestlenewz.com Pokemon

    i know why jericho got suspended….i meant live television, they didnt explain where he has been during his absence, they obviously wont say the real reason behind the absences unless its an injury…jericho even made a small joke on it when he returned…just saying if he’s gonna be gone again, how would they write him off…injury?…vacation?

  • Mindy

    Miz is obviously gonna be put over by Rey. Stop complaining Miz marks, he did nothing to earn that intercontinental championship.

  • Muscleman

    The fact that you people are up at this time of the night (just like me) really shows how passionate you are about the business. If you didn’t care, you wouldn’t stay awake just to wait for the Smackdown spoilers. I have always known that am addicted to wrestling, but now I know that I am definitely not alone.

  • rob

    way to not have the full spoilers lol wnz….

  • jerichoholic3

    they MIGHT just somehow slip barrett into this title match but i dont see it happening, btw thanks muscleman

  • rob

    Well it’s midnight eastern time so i guess smackdowns main event is “Tyler Reks and Curt Hawkins come out with a new look, something like a male stripper. They defeat two local wrestlers.”

  • jerichoholic3

    ^well said rob

  • Mindy

    Oh muscleman, you so nice.

  • ME

    @muscleman It’s actually 1:30pm here in australia

  • rob

    ^^ rest of tonight spoilers there you go guys :)

  • rob

    hahah funny i posted the rest of the spoilers and its “awaiting moderation” so it didn’t post.. then just like that this article gets updated to the full spoilers…fuck wnz im done with this sight

  • jerichoholic3

    del rio’s back. that whole segment was a waste, del rio is just boring he has like a 5 move arsenal and the only way he gets heat is ricardo

  • Bob Jones

    Bad News. During the new kid’s show taping, Santino came out for commentary with the US Championship. The new show airs after summerslam so I assume Santino will retain. Unless they either not show the commentary table or they use master editing.

  • Mark Black

    Everyone in WWE has like 5 moves so dont say that Del Rio is boring cause he has 5 moves. That makes no sense. Del Rio is just a boring heel. Maybe he’s a natural face who knows but WWE refuses to have babyfaces with rich guy gimmick. And wow…Christian wasnt even on SD what a joke!!! Sandow either. I have no reason to watch SD this friday.

  • Rg41982

    We all love spoilers. Yeah ADR needs new moves and a better finisher. Rey and cara future tag champs!

  • Akshay

    Wth ! Now jericho is on leave for injury

  • Zack Ryder

    Wait? I thought it was jericho vs ziggler at summerslam? Hmm…. they’ve even announced it…that was going to be good, now they are writing him off through injury…..

    Orton vs ziggler at the ppv maybe? orton has no match yet

  • Joseph

    Sounds like an awful Smackdown.What a waste of a storyline if it just ends up being Sheamus vs Del Rio again. And what is up with triple H coming out during a commercial to pedigree somebody? Is he that much of a glory hog? I am surprised they don’t have Cena come out with him.
