Re: Being The Booker

Friday Night Smackdown Preview:

Las Vegas, the site of last years WrestleMania, plays host to arguably the most anticipated Smackdown in the near ten year history of the show, with little over two weeks until this years Showcase of the Immortals.

A double main event is set for this weeks edition, with all three men involved in the WWE Championship Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania in action. Mister Money in the Bank, Edge, faces the WWE Champion, RVD, in what was originally set to be the Smackdown main event for the March 18 PPV. This week in Vegas though, the two men will have a terrific opportunity to garner some much needed momentum heading into WrestleMania. Edge, after brutally injuring Bobby Lashley last week will surely look to build on that destructive performance, whilst Rob Van Dam will be desperate to prove to Edge that despite the Rated R Superstars claims that because of Money in the Bank he was champion in waiting, that Van Dam is a worthy champion.

And, Chris Jericho, the third leg of the title picture, returns to Vegas, and the scene of his most agonizing defeat, twelve months ago to The Undertaker. This Friday, Jericho meets The Deadman, and will attempt to put his darkest ghost to rest by defeating The Phenom, and moving on to WrestleMania with the ultimate shift of momentum. And, if Jericho was ever to slay The Undertaker, now could well be the time, with the Demon of Death Valley seemingly off his game in recent weeks, with Kurt Angle playing mindgames with the master of mindgames. Can The Undertaker put his problems with Angle to one side and focus fully on Jericho??

As if the double main event wasnt enough, this past Monday on Raw, it was revealed that the Chairman of the Board, Mister McMahon would be travelling to Smackdown this Friday, and has challenged none other than STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN to show up in Vegas, after the bombshell announcement made by Brock Lesnar that he would have back up of his own at WrestleMania to combat the McMahon Family Empire, and that back up would be the Texas Rattlesnake. Given the history between Lesnar and Austin alone though, going back to their unforgettable clash at WrestleMania 21, can it really be believed that Lesnar and Austin -despite both mens distain for all things McMahon- could be on the same page?? One thing is for sure, this Friday, ALL will be revealed!!

Elsewhere, the two men that are set to clash for the United States Title in sixteen days, current champion, Brent Albright, and the challenger, Batista, will compete in an arm wrestling match. More curiously though, it was Albright that made the challenge to the bigger, more powerful Batista. What could have possibly possessed Albright to make the challenge to Batista?? Or, does Albright have a plan??

Last week, Brian Kendrick booked his place at WrestleMania, defeating the Cruiserweight Champion, Kid Kash. For Kash, his championship reign could be brought to a sudden halt this Friday night should he lose to the former champion, Super Crazy. After ambushing Kendrick and Crazy at Saturday Nights Main Event, the notorious K-I-D has been punished by Arn Anderson, and now faces the possibility of having to relinquish the title should he lose to Super Crazy. If he wins, he then faces Kendrick at WrestleMania, with the Cruiserweight title on the line. Will Kash hold onto his title?? Or will Super Crazy move on to WrestleMania to battle Brian Kendrick for the title??

Chris Jericho vs The Undertaker
Edge vs Rob Van Dam {NON TITLE MATCH}
Cryme Tyme vs Americas Most Wanted {NON TITLE MATCH}
Carlito & Paul London vs M.V.P & Charlie Haas
