SMACKDOWN PREVIEW (12th October)
WHO’S THE NEW GM?
Earlier in the week, we found out that Vickie Guerrero had left her role as Smackdown General Manager due to family issues, and with Teddy Long still recovering from a heart attack during his wedding to Kristal a few weeks ago, Smackdown finds itself without a General Manager. With ECW now on the shelf, could Armando Alejandro Estrada find himself in charge or will we see someone else take over the reigns? Only time will tell.
BATISTA ESCAPES THE PRISON WITH THE GOLD
For the second straight month, Batista was able to overcome the almost unstoppable force that is The Great Khali, only this time he did it inside Khali’s home, The Punjabi Prison. Batista was able to retain his World Heavyweight Championship in the process, but surely The Great Khali will have some kind of response for The Animal when Smackdown comes to Rosemount this Friday night, or has The Animal finally put pay to the Indian Warrior?
FINLAY’S SICKENING ATTACK
Finlay has unleashed some horrific attacks in his time, but what happened at No Mercy on Sunday night was just despicable. After feigning injury in his match with Rey Mysterio, he was put onto a stretcher and was on his way to the back when to everyone’s surprise, he jumped off the stretcher and proceeded to beat the hell out of Mysterio. No one knows what condition Mysterio is in and with no General Manager in place, it seems that Finlay has got away with this hideous attack.
MATT & MVP AT BOILING POINT
Matt Hardy & Montel Vontavious Porter are arguably the most unlikely Tag Team Champions of all time, but somehow they have managed to hold onto their titles over the last month. However, it seems that the tension has built up between them yet again and it seems that the pair are due to explode anytime soon, but will they manage to patch things up this Friday night?
FORMER ECW STARS TO DEBUT
Monday was another dark day for ECW as it again went out of business. However, the superstars of ECW found themselves in luck as they were split across both Raw and Smackdown. Several of them had a successful time on Raw Monday night, will that be the same case when the likes of Big Daddy V and Kevin Thorn come to Smackdown this week?
CONFIRMED FOR SMACKDOWN THIS FRIDAY NIGHT
Jimmy Wang Yang vs Finlay
Super Crazy & Shannon Moore vs Jamie Noble & Kenny Dykstra
