WWE Smackdown Results (7/19) – RVD Returns To Friday, Sandow Makes Cody An Offer, Vince Names A New GM

Bill Pritchard

Vickie is talking to someone backstage when Brad Maddox walks up and congratulates her, and he says things worked out for her. He says they should be even now, then Vickie asks to shake on it and reaches her hand out. Maddox goes to shake her hand but Vickie hauls off and slaps him in the face, then she walks away as Maddox holds his face and stares at her.

The Miz brings Paul Heyman out for Miz TV, and he asks what Heyman has to say, but Heyman just says he is an advocate for his client, Brock Lesnar. Heyman says Brock is coming for CM Punk, and Brock has no conscience, but they don't realize how hard this is because he still has love for his former best friend. Heyman pleads with Punk to stay down, and he tells him to leave WWE and go home because Brock will destroy him if he does. Miz thinks Heyman is enjoying this, and he says Heyman's true self is uglier than the liar they all know, and he hates Heyman for swearing on his children. He says Heyman still lied after that, then he drops the mic and leaves, but Heyman picks it up and introduces Miz to the man who beat him Sunday, Curtis Axel.

Intercontinental Championship
Chris Jericho vs Curtis Axel (c) (w/ Paul Heyman)

Axel applies a side headlock but Jericho sends him into the ropes, then Axel hits a shoulder block but Jericho comes back with a dropkick. Jericho clotheslines Axel to the floor, then he dropkicks him through the ropes and runs Heyman off before rolling Axel in and heading up top. Jericho hits a diving forearm to a standing Axel, then he gets a near fall before Axel punches him a few times and whips him into the opposite corner. Axel puts him in a chinlock, but Jericho fights back with some right hands and a shoulder block, then he ducks a clothesline and hits a Northern Lights suplex for two.  (Cont'd…)
