Welcome back to the WWE Friday Night Smackdown! recap, everyone. For the 8/19/11 edition, e start the show off with a recap of Randy Orton winning the World title from Christian at Summerslam 2011. This leads right into Teddy Long introducing the new champion. Ugh. The show has just started and I’m already tired. Orton takes his sweet-arse time getting to the ring as we listen to Michael Cole and Booker T bicker at each other.
Orton takes the mic from Long. He says everyone’s used to seeing Christian starting the show whining and complaining, but he’s sure as heck no Christian.
