SmackDown! Preview 7/14/06
Last week on Friday night, SmackDown! went off the air with two monsters trying to kill each other. “The Animal” Batista returned last week and let 6 months of frustration and pent up anger loose on “The World’s Strongest Man” Mark Henry. Teddy Long announced on WWE.com earlier this week that Batista and Henry will go one on one at The Great American Bash to determine a #1 contender for the World Heavyweight Championship. This week on SmackDown! both Batista and Henry will be in the same arena this Friday night. What can we expect from these two on SmackDown!?
Also on SmackDown, all three competitors in the triple threat World Heavyweight Title match will be in action. “The Wrestling Machine” and World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle will be in a handicap match when he faces both members of the Gymini. Angle requested this match as a tune up for when he faces two men at The Great American Bash with no championship advantage. Has “The Wrestling Machine” bitten off more than he can chew or will Angle continue his utter dominance of the WWE?
The other two competitors in the GAB World Title match will be in action as well. Rey Mysterio and King Booker will be on opposite sides of the ring this Friday Night. Mysterio teams up with the U.S. Champion Bobby Lashley and Hardcore Holly in a 6 man tag team match against King Booker, Finlay and William Regal. Who will gain the advantage heading into The Great American Bash? Will Mysterio use his 619 to gain a victory or will King Booker and his court get closer to the coveted World Heavyweight Championship?
The third Main-Event for The Great American Bash will be The Undertaker vs. The Great Khali in a Buried Alive match. What mind games will The Undertaker have in mind for Khali this week? And will the Deadman’s tricks have any effect on The Great Khali?
Rounding out a very strong SmackDown! line-up will be the #1 contenders for the WWE Tag Team Championship, Paul London and Brian Kendrick in a tag team match-up against The Pit Bulls, Kid Kash and Jamie Noble. Will London & Kendrick prove that they are the rightful owners of tag team title shots? Or will the Pit Bulls prove that they should be wrestling for the championships at The Great American Bash? And what will the arrogant tag team champions, JBL and Mr. Kennedy, have to say about this match-up?
All of this and more this Friday night on SmackDown! 8/7 CT.
