We’re just two weeks away from the WWE Money In the Bank PPV as Smackdown passes through EVANSVILLE, Ind. Booker T, Michael Cole, Josh Matthews greet us to a new episode of Smackdown as the show kicks off. They bring up how by order of Vicki Guerrero who served as GM for Raw & Smackdown the week that Sheamus will have to defend his World Heavyweight title in a Triple Threat against Dolph Ziggler, and Alberto Del Rio.

We’re shown a recap of AJ Lee who interfered in a three way elimination match between Kane, Daniel Bryan, and WWE champion CM Punk. During this contest it looked as if Kane was going to be scoring the first elimination when AJ came prancing around the ring! This was just enough of a distraction for Kane as he was taken out by CM Punk to eliminate Kane! The match wasn’t quite over though as CM Punk didn’t have time to come to his feet as Daniel Bryan comes from behind to strike the champion with a stiff kick to the head followed by an immediate pin for the victory!

Also we’re shown a recap of AJ’s involvement in a diva’s swimsuit beach battle royal match as she eliminated WWE Diva’s champion Layla and Vicki Guerrero to eventually pick up the win. How about that attire AJ wore on Raw folks? Major distractions as she was smoking hot!

Match 1: AJ Lee vs. Layla
Entertaining & decent match for a bit until Mr. Yes man Daniel Bryan comes out screaming yes repeatedly as AJ looks on at him circling the ring. Layla comes from behind her with a leg scissor pin for the victory.

Post match AJ just snaps as she tackles Layla to the ground and begins beating her up as Daniel Bryan looks on. He tells her to calm down and asked her how it must not be pleasant to have someone come down to the ring like that during a match. Daniel claims that he doesn’t claim attention and that he’s there’s something very important he needs to discuss. AJ tries to leave but he tells her not to go as he has something important he needs to say. He demands that Vicki Guerrero comes out to hear what he has to say as he won’t be leaving the ring. Daniel ‘s proclaims that he will be holding the ring hostage and waits a few seconds for Vicki to appear. After not seeing her come out he begins chanting “yes” as AJ soon interrupts him with chants of “yes” of her own to go to commercial.

Ah the two weird guys in their car eating hot dogs from Sonic plays. Anyone notice how long they”ve been eating that crap? Seems like every Sonic commercial these two are more concerned with meeting up and stuff their faces with each other then playing some basketball or hanging out with friends. We also see a commercial for the Great American Bash as for the first time on the SyFy network it will be on Smackdown live this Tuesday!

Our show resumes as Daniel and AJ are screaming yes at each other back and fourth. Vicki Guerrero comes out and tells him everyone has to be tired of hearing his same old tired chants while shouting excuse me! Bryan states how he anted to make a point as he beat Kane & CM Punk in the same night on Raw and how he’s also going to be involved in the triple threat match tonight for the World Heavyweight title. He proclaims that soon Raw & Smackdown will revolve around him. While the American Dragon is at it he applauds Vickie for the superb job she’s done as GM this week as he feels she’s been doing a fantastic job. Furthermore, Daniel’s feels that she’s proven herself to be the permanent GM. Daniel’s proclaims that the two of them need to work together closely and also takes note of AJ’s recent interferences in matches to suggest that AJ be banned from ringside at Money In The Bank when he takes on CM Punk for the WWE title.

“Ms. Cougar” Vickie Guerrero takes note of Daniel’s point and brings up how she hasn’t forgotten AJ beating her in the swimsuit battle royal earlier in the week. Guerrero also tells AJ how she saw her disrespectful tweets from AJ talking about how “she beat the old cougar lady’s butt”! Guerrero claims that she’s going to need to teach AJ some respect as the two women are about to get into right there on the spot! Daniel Bryan would intervene however and in try selfish fashion say it isn’t about them, it’s about him! Vicki apologizes to Bryan and tells him he is right and mentions how recently a WWE.com poll was brought up asking fans how they would like to see AJ involved in the WWE Championship match against Bryan and Punk at MITB. The picks were guest timekeeper, guest referee, guest ring announcer, or guest commentator. The WWE Board of Directors listened to the fans as 77% voted that she be made special guest referee. Vicki loses her cool as she sees the results and questions the results but corrects her attitude when she realizes the Board of Directors may be looking on at her performance tonight and proclaims how the fans have spoken and how she supports the board’s decision. AJ looks on at Vicki & Daniel and smiles at them while pointing yes! Daniel’s questions why this is happening as he screams no all the way up the ring and up the ramp. Vicki Guerrero quickly gives respect to the board for their ruling. She also takes the time to inform the WWE ?Universe that there will be a series of qualifying MITB matches tonight to determine who will participate at the PPV for the World Heavyweight title!

We see “Woo Woo Woo” Zack Ryder come down to the ring to end this segment as the question remains who will he be facing?

That he’s not asking her but demanding her to help him as she smacks him across the face!

Overall tonight a very strong episode of Smackdown as n the Smackdown side the challengers to face one another at MITB is set. We’ve seen a new injection of new guys which should prove to be a entertaining match in two weeks. Great non stop action throughout the night as AJ just continues to step her game up more & more each week. In my honest opinion she’s been able to capitalize more on being given the opportunity to shine more then Eve Torres who’s awaiting for creative to figure out a way to put her back on WWE TV. WWE Smackdown gets a 8/10 for this week.
