WWE SmackDown Spoilers: Complete Results and Analysis for August 2

Tim KeeneyContributor IJuly 25, 2013

With the WWE in Australia for the Raw World Tour for the next week, the company's schedule is a little out of whack. 

We already have results for this week's SmackDown and next week's Raw, and on Thursday night, we got results for next week's SmackDown, which will air on August 2. 

That's obviously still very far away, but with one major storyline taking a very crucial turn, anticipation for the show is sure to already be high.

Warning: In addition to this show's spoilers, there are slight spoilers for the two other unseen shows below, but if you're here, you're probably not too worried about that.

Let's take a look at the action.

Moment We Can't Wait to See: Rob Van Dam vs. Christian vs. Randy Orton

An interesting wrinkle in the Divas division and another CM Punk vs. Fandango match are both appealing, but this show's premier moment is obvious. 

It has been one of the biggest questions since the conclusion of Money in the Bank: Who is going to challenge Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight title?

Damien Sandow has the briefcase, but he's busy with Cody Rhodes. Dolph Ziggler, the most recent champion and challenger, is feuding with Big E Langston and A.J. Lee. 

But to make the picture even more murky, Del Rio has lost to Orton, lost to Christian (next week's Raw) and beat Van Dam (tomorrow's SmackDown) since the last pay-per-view. 

Nevertheless, it finally appears to all be coming to a head, and it's Christian who will face Alberto Del Rio at SummerSlam after rolling up Randy Orton, who RKO'd Rob Van Dam. 

Del Rio and Christian have some history together. They feuded in 2011, culminating in a cage match and then a ladder match for the vacant World Heavyweight title at Extreme Rules:

They have good chemistry together inside the ring, and with Sandow potentially lurking, this should make for a terrific match at SummerSlam.
