“The Boss is Back!“
The last we checked in with Vinny Mac, son-in-law Triple H was informing him he was being removed as the driving force behind the RAW brand. Let’s get something straight, no one actually can usurp Vincent Kennedy McMahon. It was all for the story line and about a year later we have “Big Johnny” in the on screen drivers seat. They’ve done a decent job of making “People Power” kind of funny.
We’re getting close to the three-hour format change, and tonight’s broadcast emanating from WWE home territory of Hartford Connecticut will also air for 3 hours.
Add in a few wrinkles between site sweetheart AJ and her myopic mix-up between Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, and Kane; the Intercontinental Champion Christian returning from a forced appearance on TNA’s Slammiversary PPV, Dolph Ziggler looking for his time to shine and the continued struggle between Big Show and John Cena for comeuppance… it’s a packed show!
Just like last week, there are rumors of past Superstars appearing to help build hype towards the PPV-esque 1000th episode of raw (July 23rd). JBL was in New York City doing some things for WWE Corporate in regards to his 7 Summits promotion, and the Man They Call VADER has been sighted in Hartford as well. Business is fixin’ to pick up…
I love you, Pop.
Botch announcing you re-hired a “fired” superstar by announcing you re-hired him BEFORE your match where any superstar helping you gets fired, BECAUSE IT’S FRIDAYYYY!
It’s time for another edition of WWE’s Friday Night SmackDown, run by the king of #PeoplePower and #RascalPower, Big Johnny. Headlining the show tonight is the search for a new #1 Contender for the World Heavyweight Champion, Sheamus. Randy Orton, Kane, and Alberto Del Rio all want a piece of the Great White and will compete in a Three-Way to determine Sheamus’ opponent at No Way Out.
Also on Sheamus’ dance card, the Celtic Warrior is under scrutiny for bumping into the General Manager last Monday on his way to rescue John Cena.

What are your thoughts on last night’s Over the Limit Show? We’ve got a WWE heavy Roundup this morning after an eventful pay-per-view.
WWE Reports On Several Injuries For John Laurinaitis After Last Night’s PPV- Wrestling INC
WWE is reporting “serious” injuries for the General Manager following his match with Cena. I’m guessing these injuries are as serious as John Cena’s injuries after last month’s Extreme Rules. If nothing else it provides the opportunity to have Big Johnny in a wheelchair. As much as I hate the evil authority figure in wrestling, evil authority figures in wheelchairs are pretty fun.
Christian Addresses Return & Title Win- PW Torch
Good to see Christian back in action at Over the Limit, he dedicated his win last night to Randy Savage. That’s a cause we can all get behind.

Tell your ex-girlfriend you’re moving on to her best friend and chant YES! YES! YES! Because it’s FRIDAY! And Friday means another edition of SmackDown.
The main event this week is World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus taking on one of his opponents this Sunday at Over The Limit, Randy Orton. Here’s the 4-1-1 from WWE.com
Keeping in mind that the impending pay-per-view contest has already ignited catastrophic disorder between its four participants on both Raw and SmackDown, is Eve tempting fate by unleashing two of its most brutal grapplers against each other so close to the whirlwind encounter? Has she considered what will happen if the one of them gets hurt? Both Superstars are clearly not 100 percent, with their arms under constantly attack in recent weeks. In addition to the risk to their bodies, it is entirely possible that the crafty Del Rio or Jericho will attempt another treacherous third party assault.

It’s hard to believe that we’re only six days out from WWE Over the Limit. The clear focus of the pay-per-view build has been on John Cena versus John Laurinaitis, so expect to see more on that front tonight on RAW in Pittsburgh.
Big Johnny also has his hands in a feud with another former champion, the Big Show. As seen last Friday on SmackDown, Laurinaitis is continuing to demand an apology from the Big Show for mocking his voice.
Also The COO, Triple H will be live and in person to address the attack several weeks ago by Brock Lesnar and his subsequent “I quit” message delivered by Paul Heyman.
And finally, the WWE Championship match at OTL between Punk and the master of the Yes Lock, Daniel Bryan should get some last minute build. Just six days from their title match hopefully we’ll hear more from both men.
Check back tonight and leave us some comments on your opinions of tonight’s show!
