Champion Down, But Not Out!
Following a controversial ending to Friday Night Smackdown, we now know that on the Smackdown: Night of Champions special in three weeks time, Randy Orton will challenge John Cena for the WWE Title.
One man this didn’t sit well with was Kurt Angle who had made Randy Orton tap out during the contest only for special guest referee John Cena to miss the action in dealing with JBL. This allowed Orton a reprieve and the Legend Killer took full advantage, hitting an RKO on Angle for the win. Following the match Kurt Angle completely snapped and attacked John Cena, Angle slamming the champion before locking in the Ankle Lock, refusing to release the hold on a helpless Cena.
In an update on John Cena’s condition, it has been reported that the champion did NOT suffer any severe damage and was a lucky man to do so. Cena is said to still be feeling the effects of what went down Friday night but doctors have assured Cena he will be ready for when Smackdown rolls around next week and for the big match come Night of Champions.
In other news from this week’s Smackdown, it was confirmed by Smackdown GM Teddy Long that Matt Hardy will get another shot at the United States title when he takes on Orlando Jordan at the Night of Champions special. And in further news we’ve been informed of two huge additions to the Night of Champions line up, announced by the General Manager!
MNM will put their Tag team titles on the line in another Judgment Day rematch against ‘Mr.Friday Night’ Rob Van Dam and the ‘Master of the 619’ Rey Mysterio! Plus, after defeating Cruiserweight champion Paul London this past week, albeit thanks to Chavo Guerrero, The Hurricane will get a shot at the gold when he faces London with the Cruiserweight championship up for grabs!
Raw Preview will be up in a couple of days I think. Any feedback for Smackdown would be great in the meantime.
