Re: WWE: A Strong Response
HUGE TITLE MATCH ANNOUNCED FOR THE RUMBLE
Last night we witnessed what was a truly jam packed, rollercoaster of a show when Smackdown came to you from Ontario, Canada. It all started with the hometown boy, Edge bringing up the screw job of the 1997 in Montreal, continuing his mission to take back the World Heavyweight Championship from Shawn Michaels. Playing the villain for the night for his previous sins in Canada, Michaels was forced into defending his title against Edge by the fed up General Manager, William Regal.
With Edge also revealing his surprise, Shawn’s cousin, Michael Shane accompanying him in his corner against Shane’s very own cousin. Just when it looked like Shawn had the match wrapped up, Shane tried to change that, only for the former World Champion, Batista to storm down to ringside and save the day, but instead cost Michaels the match, by attacking Edge for a disqualification. Leaving Regal more angry than at the top of the show, the GM made a huge decision by announcing that both Batista and Edge will challenge Michaels for the title at the Royal Rumble in a triple threat.
With just over seven days left before the Rumble, what will Michaels have to say about this and his cousin coming to try and cost him the World Championship? Find out this week on Smackdown!
