Thursday Night SmackDown Preview
06/30/05 – Anaheim, CA

As SmackDown heads to Anaheim, the suspense of the Draft Lottery and its final hours increases, as does the intensity of the SmackDown superstars as the Great American Bash draws nearer, and with summer on the horizon, things are bound to heat up.

Last week, Theodore Long introduced the SmackDown Championship before making a six-man elimination match for this week to crown the inaugural champion. The match is set to feature six of SmackDown's top superstars, who at this point has been confirmed to be JBL, Rey Mysterio, Chris Benoit, Booker T, Eddie Guerrero, and Randy Orton. With each superstar seemingly headed down different paths in their career, one similarity has been found - they all want to be champion, and they all want that now. Who will manage to adjust to the elimination style matchup and emerge victorious over their fellow peers, ultimately becoming the first ever SmackDown Champion? {DH Spoiler: Don't get too excited... Batista, 'nuff said}

Since being drafted to SmackDown in the Draft Lottery, Randy Orton has made it very clear that he has not gotten over the fact that he lost to the Undertaker at WrestleMania. After Randy Orton RKO'd the Undertaker a few weeks ago, costing him his match against JBL, the Deadman has begun his mind games with Randy Orton in hopes of getting inside the head of the youngster and catching him off guard. Orton, however, has made it known that he plans on living up to his title as 'The Legend Killer' by killing the career of the Undertaker, and in the process, cementing his own legacy.

Over the past couple of weeks, Heidenreich has had his share of problems with the WWE Tag Team Champions, MNM. Last week, Joey Mercury was successful in defeating Heidenreich after interference from his counterparts, which one must assume has angered Heidenreich. Whether or not he will retaliate against the champions remains to be seen, but one thing's for certain - the number's game MNM possess seems to be the difference maker, and only a fool would try to tackle the tandem single-handedly.

Speaking of MNM, Melina and Michelle McCool have been at each other's throats over the past couple of weeks. It started a few weeks back when MNM interrupted Heidenreich's 'chocolate frenzy' with the other diva's on SmackDown, which followed up with Melina humiliating Heidenreich and going as far as calling him a pathetic loser. Michelle McCool decided that she'd heard enough and attacked Melina. Just last week, the same thing happened when Michelle had had enough of Melina's interference in Heidenreich's match with Joey Mercury, leading to a catfight ensuing at ringside during the middle of the contest. This week, the two hope to settle the score in the ring as they go one-on-one.

Cruiserweight Champion Paul London has done quite well for himself since winning the title back in March. Last week, however, both he and Chavo Guerrero were viciously assaulted by a new, debuting group on SmackDown known as 'The Mexicools'. The trio, consisting of Super Crazy, Juventud, and Psicosis made it very clear they are tired of dealing with Mexican stereotypes and vowed to take over the Cruiserweight division on SmackDown. Tonight, London will go one-on-one with Akio in a non-title match, and whether or not the Mexicools will once again involve themselves remains to be seen.

Someone else tired of racism and stereotypes if Muhammad Hassan, who, along with his manager Daivari, feels like he's being treated poorly due to the fact that he's Muslim, and is sick of being treated poorly. Tonight, he'll be in action against Funaki, another superstar with cultural heritage, in hopes of sending a message to Theodore Long and the rest of the SmackDown locker room of what's on his agenda and what he's capable of.

Lastly, this edition of SmackDown marks the final day of the 2005 Draft Lottery. Although most of the Draft Lottery has been completed and the aftermath is in effect, there is still the possibility that one or multiple superstars could change brands at the last minute. The effects of this would be extraordinary, and the impact on the future would be gigantic.

Tune into SmackDown this Thursday at 8/7 CT to see all of this and more.
