Friday Night SmackDown – 12 June – Greensboro, North Carolina
Tonight, SmackDown rolls into North Carolina, Greensboro to be exact. And it is sure to be an explosive show as the road to The Bash heats up.
The current World Heavyweight Champion, Matt Hardy is a North Carolina native but don’t expect the fans to give him a warm welcome home after what he did last week. The champion was instructed to defend his title against the former champion in the main event of the evening. John Cena and Matt Hardy engaged in a verbal confrontation which turned physical, and this continued in the main event when Hardy attacked Cena who was on his way to the ring. The Cold One made sure to make a statement, throwing the former champion into barricades, ring posts and steel steps before finishing him off with a Twist of Hate. How will the former champion react to his beating last week, will he get some measure of revenge or will Matt continue his wave of momentum??
SmackDown has been a very controversial show recently and that may be down to the SmackDown General Manager, Theodore Long. Not one to be bullied, Teddy Long has put the foot down with many Superstars, and these Superstars include the World Champion, former United States Champion R-Truth, Chris Jericho and The Brian Kendrick. All four of these men have aired grievances over Long’s General Management of the brand, with each man complaining of being treated unfairly. R-Truth has had his rematch clause taken away from him, Hardy was forced to defend his title only a few days after he won it, Brian Kendrick is complaining about the amount of shots The Lifeblood of Extreme have been getting at the WWE Tag Team Championships and Chris Jericho just doesn’t like the General Manager. What will happen tonight between the GM and these four Superstars??
Speaking of Chris Jericho, the self proclaimed Best In The World will walk on down to the ring and explain his actions for last week. Jeff Hardy competed against John Morrison in a great match which was marred by the attack by Jericho on Jeff which happened after the match. We do not know why Chris Jericho attacked Hardy, but we could guess that it is because Hardy cost him his chance to become World Heavyweight Champion at Judgment Day.
Last week, Kofi Kingston teamed with the former United States Champion, R-Truth to take on Mike Knox and The Gold Standard, Shelton Benjamin. R-Truth left his partner high and dry despite assuring him he had his back, and Benjamin took total advantage by planting Kingston with PayDirt and getting the three count victory. As a result, Kofi Kingston will defend his championship against The Gold Standard tonight! Meanwhile, with Evan Bourne out of action, Kelly Kelly will have to suffer another week of being dragged around by Mike Knox, and we hope for her sake that she doesn’t annoy The Monstrous Knox.
When The Brian Kendrick aired his grievances to Assistant General Manager, Layla last week, he got himself into a bit of bother when Layla announced he would face off against Gregory Helms, who stepped in to prevent Kendrick getting any more aggressive towards her
