Below are primary points of focus from WWE.com’s official Five Point Preview of tonight’s live episode of WWE SmackDown 7/2/12 which features The Great American Bash theme, Teddy Long looking for retribution on Aksana and Antonio Cesaro, more Money In The Bank ladder match qualifiers for a chance at the World Heavyweight Championship briefcase, and the future of Alberto Del Rio and Dolph Ziggler. Also, as announced on Raw last night, Super SmackDown live will feature a battle royal where the winner will be Guest GM of SmackDown next week. John Cena, CM Punk and the Big Show are all participants in this battle royal.
–Teddy Long’s retribution: Aksana and Antonio Cesaro vs. The Great Khali and Layla
–Cody Rhodes’ protest: Since Cody didn’t get pinned last week in a MITB qualifying tag match (David Otunga did), Rhodes is looking to see if he can wiggle his way back into the MITB picture
–There will be more MITB qualifying matches. Which young and hungry SmackDown superstars will earn a coveted spot?
–Sheamus fended off Alberto Del Rio and Dolph Ziggler in a Triple Threat match last week to retain his World Heavyweight Title. What will be next for these three ahead of Money In The Bank?
