The Weekly Beat Down: Smackdown Edition! 9/6/13

Written by Christian Miller

It’s Friday and that means that Smackdown is tonight! We are doing the Beat Down about the blue brand this week, so if you’re ready, sit back and prepare to find out all my wonderfully psychic predictions about tonight’s show based upon its official five point preview.

Point 1

Tonight, Triple H will be holding a town hall style meeting where supposedly, wrestlers will be able to air their grievances surrounding his firing of Cody Rhodes on RAW.

So, what can we expect? Well my guess is that everyone will be too scared to actually air any complaints for fear of getting fired. Then, Daniel Bryan will stick up for Rhodes and get thrust into some sort of 20 man battle royal gauntlet elimination chamber handicap match against the entire Smackdown roster.

Point 2

Triple H has been making Daniel Bryan’s life a living hell since Randy Orton cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase, putting him in all kinds of crazy matches and situations (like last week when he forced him to fight Show and then made Show knock Bryan out after the match).

So, what can we expect tonight? See my above comment about a 20 man battle royal gauntlet elimination chamber handicap match.

Point 3

Rob Van Dam and Alberto Del Rio have been going back and forth ahead of their match for the World Heavyweight Championship at this month’s Night of Champions PPV.

So, what can we expect to happen tonight? In my opinion, RVD has the moment rolling into his match with ADR. So, I expect ADR to ambush RVD after a match, thereby giving the champ a bit o momentum.

Point 4

Dolph Ziggler fell to the Ryback on RAW when Dean Ambrose attacked him before the match, softening him up.

So, what can we expect tonight? Well I think in the grander scheme of things, Ambrose’s attack on Ziggler was to help set up a traditional Survivor Series Elimination match at Survivor Series in November, pitting Team Triple H vs. Team Daniel Bryan (with Ziggler being a part of Daniel Bryan’s team). So, I expect Ziggler to feel another loss tonight at the hand of some Shield interference.

Point 5

AJ Lee has been causing driving all of the Total Divas divas crazy. On RAW they finally snapped, having had enough, and beat the crap out of her when she tried to interfere in a divas triple threat match.

So, what can we expect tonight? Well, AJ will definitely get revenge. It’s just a matter of how… perhaps we should expect another #pipebombshell?
