Re: 7/9 SmackDown Live Thread
The tag summit could be good as long as Bryan controls the segment. Sprinkle some Big E and Xavier magic in there too.
Balor vs. Naka, while it could be good, is just a way for Naka to get a win here to get a title shot against Balor on PPV, whether at ER or Summerslam. Why they can't just have a top contender's match, beats me.
I would have save Aleister's opponent reveal until Sunday, though I suppose it depends on who it is. I could see it being a lesser guy for ER, like Cesaro. And then Orton comes out after that match to challenge Aleister for Summerslam.
And as long as Owens is continuing to become face (again), Owens vs. Ziggler is fine by me.
