WWE is reportedly on high alert to make tonight’s live ‘Super Smackdown’ special into a success, which could see the company’s “B” show undergo some massive changes. Last night on RAW, chief operating officer Triple H announced that for the foreseeable future the stars of Smackdown will be featured on RAW. This adds a whole new dimension to tonight’s Smackdown.
The Wrestling Observer has said that there is a considerable amount of stress within the company right now to draw a strong number for tonight’s broadcast which has Smackdown not airing on it’s usual Friday night slot. There are are four matches announced for tonight’s rare live broadcast of Smackdown on SyFy (7pm C/8pm E).
Alberto Del Rio vs Sin Cara.
Expect some interaction tonight between John Cena and the WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio tonight, as we’re just a couple weeks away from their title match at the Night of Champions Pay Per View on September 18th. Del Rio’s match tonight with Sin Cara could see some exciting action with these two luchadores hitting their mark.

Wade Barret vs. John Cena
This match will have a less tension compared to the match these two had at Survivor Series had last year, yet look for Barrett to get a solid rub from Cena here. Now unless Del Rio pulls some shenanigans, look for the Cenation to be victorious.
Randy Orton (c) vs Christian in a Steel Cage Match for the WWE World Heavyweight
The long-drawn out saga that is Randy Orton and Christian has had it’s ups and downs as a story on Smackdown this year. Hopefully tonight’s Steel Cage contest will close the chapter on this program for both men. It will be intriguing to see if Christian’s buddy and 10-time World champion, Edge will make an appearance on this PPV level match.
CM Punk vs The Great Khali.
CM Punk poked a hornet’s nest of political swagger in WWE boss Triple H, so now he’s getting
the payback in the form of a Punjabi nightmare that is the 400lb Great Khali. The announcement of a match between HHH and Punk at Night of Champions last night on RAW, caught some fans off guard. It could be really surprising to see the always outspoken Punk top the giant tonight, but the odds are against him.
