WWE Smackdown (Airing Friday on SyFy)
* John Laurinaitis opens the show with a promo. He asks the fans for support in his match with John Cena at Over The Limit, and asks them to say a prayer for him. CM Punk interrupts and says that his prayers have been answered, since Laurinaitis will be fired. He says he wants to be the first to wish him the best in his future endeavors. Laurinaitis says this is all the WWE Universe's fault, and says that they can all go to Hell. As punishment for his interruption, Laurinaitis announced that Punk will face Kane tonight.
