TRIU Friday Night Smackdown Review (8/2/13)…

                                                                                                                                                Smackdown opened this week with Alberto Del Rio (supposedly) picking his opponent for Summer Slam. Just as expected Del Rio came out and did the classic heel thing and picked easy opponents (1st R.Rodruigez and 2nd Brooklyn Brawler) this angered current SD GM Vikki Guerrero and caused her to set up the main event. A triple threat match between 3 of the best in the game right now and boy did they give a performance. Overall the matches that they set up were worth watching but there just wasn’t much of consequence that happened on this week’s show. Oh sorry I did mean to talk about the long awaited heel turn for Layla as she turned on Kaitlyn and aligned herself with AJ Lee. This one is going to add some new spice to this rivalry maybe even make it watchable again…
