~Friday Night SmackDown~

Friday Night SmackDown emanates from London, England with not one, but two huge championship matches lined up, both of which will have huge implications as SmackDown heads towards Judgment Day.
Last week, SmackDown G.M. Teddy Long decided to let Edge and Mr. Kennedy sort things out for themselves as he pitted them against each other, with the winner guaranteed a title shot against Batista tonight. During the match, as Edge went for a steel chair, Batista intervened, removing the chair from Edge’s hands, an interruption that ultimately led to Kennedy putting Edge away with the mic check. With the match now set, Kennedy will challenge Batista tonight for the World Heavyweight Championship. There’s no love lost between the two, especially after their match at No Way Out and Kennedy’s encounter with Ric Flair at WrestleMania, meaning that when these two collide tonight in London, sparks are sure to fly. Who will leave London as the World Heavyweight Champion? And what role, if even, will Edge play in the preceedings?
Every since No Way Out, Matt Hardy and Finlay have been battling each other over the United States Championship, a rivalry that lead to a title match at WrestleMania XXIII where Hardy finally won a major singles championship. Tonight, the pair meet one last time, this time under rules no one is more familiar with than 'The Fighting Irishman'... a Belfast Brawl Match. Determined to end things with Finlay once and for all, Hardy challenged the veteran to a WrestleMania rematch, determined to beat Finlay at his own game. With these two being no strangers to each other the last few months, this one could spiral out of control in a hurry, and of course, The Miz will be watching on very closely, knowing he's next in line to face the champion at Judgment Day.
Speaking of Batista and Hardy, they teamed up last week to do Teddy Long a favour as they handed a first defeat to The New Breed, no doubt teaching Elijah Burke and Monty Brown a lesson in the process. With the World Tag Team Champions, The Hooligans, inching closer to full health, Burke and Brown will no doubt be looking to once again state their cases for a title opportunity against London and Kendrick.
Elsewhere, Gregory Helms takes on Shannon Moore fresh off what he considered an expose on Bryan Danielson's previous WWE career, and Santino Marella leads The Full Blooded Italians into battle with Funaki and Jimmy Wang Yang, but nod oubt Marella will be wary of the presence of the man he's been targetting in recent weeks, 'The Big Red Machine', Kane. We'll also hear more from Chavo Guerrero on his upcoming match at Judgment Day with Rey Mysterio, and the 2007 King of the Ring Qualifying Round draw is revealed ahead of the tournament's kick-off this Monday on Raw.
