WWE Smackdown: Spoilers for July 12, 2013

This Friday marks the last episode of WWE Smackdown before the much-anticipated Money in the Bank. As the tension rises and rivalries escalate to their highest point, we see the PPV competitors take the stage. How will the WWE showcase these superstars and further build up the anticipation for Money in the Bank?

Here is a list of the matches:

Daniel Bryan def. Christian

Bryan and Christian are going to be competing in the same ladder match come Sunday, so this match should build some concern. Both men have always had the ability to wow the crowd with their in-ring abilities. So seeing the two of them go head to head will most likely be one that you don’t want to miss.

Seth Rollins def. Jey Uso

Only 48 hours prior to their pre-show tag match, one half of the Usos and the Shield will face off in a singles match. This is a different match-up to see, but it should be a good one to spice up the match on Sunday.

Chris Jericho def. Curtis Axel

Curtis Axel is set to take on The Miz on Sunday and try to retain his Intercontinental Championship. Chris Jericho is going to be in a match with Ryback, who is sadly failing to entertain the masses these days. Axel lost his first match on Raw and his second one is coming Friday. Could this be a sign for Sunday?

Ryback def. Miz

Continuing with the theme tonight, another new matchup is presented when Ryback and Miz take center stage. The Powerhouse abilities should play nicely with the more mat-based moves of Miz.

Fandango def. Wade Barrett

We have seen this duo make an attempt to battle it out in the ring before, only to be disturbed. This time, we see them take the ring before they compete for a chance at the World Title. On Monday, Barrett had enough of Fandango’s signature entrance and left him laying backstage after a punch to the jaw. Will this loss hurt Barrett, or power him to take charge at Money in the Bank?

Alberto Del Rio vs. Sin Cara

World Champion Alberto Del Rio takes on a “jobber” Sin Cara in a match that I really don’t have much to say about. This one seems to be a waste of time when there are plenty of other men that Del Rio could have fought before his big match Sunday with Dolph Ziggler. This one never got started due to interference by the no. 1 contender. 

Sheamus no contest with Randy Orton

Two other ladder match competitors decided to join the main event when Daniel Bryan and Christian both ran down to the ring. Following a four-way battle, Randy Orton took his place a top the ladder and grabbed the briefcase to end the show.
