WWE Smackdown comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (Fri., Aug. 24, 2012) from California featuring a taped show on SyFy. And it's the fallout show from the SummerSlam pay-per-view that went down this past Sunday night in Los Angeles.

After Alberto Del Rio lost to Sheamus at the big show via less than honest means, it seemed to cement that "ADR" would stick around in the world heavyweight title picture. Well, he's involved in a number one contender bout against none other than Randy Orton tonight to find out the answer to that.

Plus, Dolph Ziggler still has the Money in the Bank briefcase and no longer has Chris Jericho taking up his time. He gets in on the fun, too, but to what results?

All that and more.

If you don't want to wait until tonight, you can click here to read full spoilers.

Remember, the show starts 8 p.m. ET on SyFy so be sure to get here nice and early to join in with all your favorite Cageside commenters. Smackdown open discussion after the jump.
