WWE Friday Night Smackdown Preview- 5/8/05- Detroit; Michigan
Friday Night Smackdown comes to you from Detroit, Michigan as the road to Summerslam draws ever closer and tonight the WWE Champion has a score to settle.
For a long time now, WWE Champion John Cena has had to deal with Kurt Angleís claims that heís afraid of the Wrestling Machine, that he fears facing him inside the ring. Well last week Cena did just that as he teamed with Rob Van Dam and Rey Mysterio to face Angle and the WWE Tag Team Champions MNM with the end result seeing Angle get one over on the champion, delivering a brutal Angle Slam from behind, allowing Joey Mercury to pick up the win over Cena. This Friday night John Cena WILL call out Kurt Angle and itís thought the champ has a thing or two to get off his chest to the Olympic Gold Medalist.
Also this Friday for the first time since May, The Undertaker will return to action on the blue brand as he takes on the Masterpiece, Chris Masters. The Deadman returned at The Great American Bash to cost long time rival Randy Orton the WWE Championship and it was confirmed last week that Taker and Orton will square off once again at Summerslam. Will the Legend Killer have anything lined up for the Phenom on his return to Smackdown? Or will it all be plain sailing as the Deadman prepares for Summerslam?
One of Michiganís own has had it rough of late. Rob Van Dam along with partner Rey Mysterio have been screwed out of the Tag Team Titles on more than one occasion, the most recent at The Great American Bash. An investigation by Teddy Long and the Board of Directors has been ongoing as to who screwed Van Dam and Mysterio back at the Bash, we hope to find out this Friday if there have been any developments.
The past few months have seen JBLís career take a downward spiral, losing his WWE title at Wrestlemania and failing to recapture the gold on numerous occasions since then. Last week Layfield defeated Booker T however and went on to promise that this week he will make a big impact. What exactly does the self proclaimed ĎWrestling Godí have up his sleeve?
And finally last week saw the official birth of Gregory Helms with the new Cruiserweight Champion ditching his superhero colours and adopting his new persona. Helms alliance with Chavo Guerrero has shocked everybody including the former champion Paul London. Helms will be in action this Friday night as he looks to prove exactly why heís ranked number one in the Cruiserweight division right now.
Confirmed for this Friday Night:
John Cena will call out Kurt Angle!
The Undertaker vs. Chris Masters
Cruiserweight Champion Gregory Helms will be in action!
