~Friday Night SmackDown~
May 4th, 2007
Von Braun Center
Last week London, England played host to Friday Night SmackDown and it's two title matches. While Matt Hardy registered a convincing victory over Finlay to retain his United States Championship, the World Heavyweight Championship Match between Batista and Mr. Kennedy came to an abrupt ending... all thanks to Edge.
As Batista and Kennedy were battling to a finish, Edge stormed the ring, delivering the spear to Batista and then to Mr. Kennedy, handing the victory to Batista albeit via disqualification. The issues between these three have been escalating for months now, and it appears that after Edge's recent actions, they could reach breaking point. Tonight, Batista and Matt Hardy to team up to face Edge and Hardy's opponent at Judgment Day, The Miz. With Batista desperate to get his hands on Edge, and with Edge desperate to get his hands on the World Heavyweight Championship, expect this one to be fierce battle, but of course, one question remains... just what role, if any, will Mr. Kennedy play in it all?
The 2007 King of the Ring kicked off on Raw last Monday, and now SmackDown joins the party with three qualifying matches. The WWE Tag Team Champions The Hooligans will collide, an intriguing matchup given the rather frosty relationship that has existed between the two since WrestleMania. No doubt Ashley will have both men ready for action, and they'll enter the match united and best of friends... but is that how they'll leave it? Elsewhere, expect a brutal battle between Kane and Finlay, the two heavy hitter so far suffering very different post-WrestleMania 2007s. Kane has been on a roll, picking up win after win, while Finlay has lost the United States Championship and failed to win it back in a rematch. Just one week after the brutal Belfast Brawl, Finlay may not be 100%, something which Kane will no doubt take advantage of. As for King Booker, he begins the defence of his crown and aims to become the first man to win the tournament twice. Tommy Dreamer will be no push over, but Booker should be able to make it through to the next round.
After weeks of bickering and back and forth between the Cruiserweight Champion Gregory Helms and his WrestleMania opponent, Bryan Danielson, tonight is finally the night that Danielson gets the chance to earn another shot at the gold as he is one of ten men competing in a Cruiserweight Battle Royal, the winner set to go to Judgment Day to face Helms for the title. Three members of The Full Blooded Italians, both Asian Rednecks and a host of other cruiserweights are set to compete, but surely now that he's so close to getting the title shot he craves, Danielson won't let this chance slip y him.
Last week, Chavo Guerrero started a retrospective of sorts of Rey Mysterio's career, starting by calling legendary cruiserweight Dean Malenko out to the ring. After harsh words were exchanged between the two, it appeared as if Chavo and Malenko would go their seperate ways with a showing of respect... only for Guerrero to sucker punch Malenko, then nail him with the frog splash, adding insult to injury. Tonight, Chavo vows to once again take us on a trip down memory lane by inviting an opponent from Rey's past into the ring. Just who does Chavo have in mind? Tune in to find out!
