WWE SmackDown! – July 15th 2011 – Uncasville, Connecticut
IN RING INTERVIEW
Josh Mathews & World Heavyweight champion Randy Orton + Christian: Josh asked Randy if he’s worried about losing his championship via DQ. Randy said this Sunday he will not get disqualified. Randy said he thinks he’s proven that there is more than one way for him to beat Christian and this is just a cheap attempt to get at him. Christian came on the Tron. Christian said he doesn’t need to win by DQ and that his lawyers forced that stipulation. Christian said he needed to get Randy a gift and he unveiled a photo of him standing over Randy holding the title. Christian said this is exactly how Sunday night will end. Randy said he sees what Christian is trying to do but a stupid picture isn’t going to set him off. Randy said this is borderline pathetic. Christian said Randy’s family is pathetic. Christian said his father Bob Orton was a glorified sidekick who never came close to being champion. Christian said there’s a wing of the hall of fame reserved for guys like Shawn Michaels and Stone Cold, and then there’s a wing for guys like Bob Orton and Drew Carrey. Christian said Bob is only in the hall of fame to keep Randy happy. Randy told Christian to come say that to his face. Christian said after he beats him on Sunday he will. Randy said Christian is a pathetic excuse for a man.

IN RING SEGMENT
Theodore Long + Mark Henry & The Big Show: Teddy said this would be a forum where Mark and Show could voice their opinions before their match on Sunday. Mark said he wouldn’t go farther than the stage because they know what happens when he loses his temper. Big Show said him holding his temper is the only thing keeping Mark from getting chokeslammed to hell. Mark said this Sunday Show would be in his hell. Mark said everything was his fault and showed a video of Show beating him up last month. Show said after 13 years Henry finally has some potential. Show said he lit the fire and he can put it out. Mark said stronger is better, meaner is better, better is better, but bigger isn’t better. Mark said Show has no idea what he’s capable of. Show said if he wants to fight to bring his ass down there now. Teddy told them to hold on a minute. Teddy said he will fine them and cancel their match. Teddy said this Sunday they’ll let god sort it out.
