Re: Deadman & Legend Present: World Wrestling Entertainment
WWE Friday Night Smackdown Preview January 13th, 2006
This week Houston welcomes Friday Night Smackdown to its great city, in anticipation of another recording breaking show.
Hell hath no fury like the Deadman, as the old WWE saying goes, and Randy Orton may find that out first hand on Friday night. The self-proclaimed "Legend Killer" used questionable tactics to eliminate his old nemesis The Undertaker from the Battle Royal last week, thus becoming the #1 Contender to the World Heavyweight Championship. Smackdown expects a reaction from the "Phenom"; the only question remains, what are the repercussions for Randy Orton?
Smackdown's General Manager has seemingly had enough of the differences between Chris Benoit and the United States Champion Booker T. Last week Booker T purposefully got himself disqualified in a match up with the "Rabid Wolverine" following a heinous steel chair attack. Benoit attained revenge though later through eliminating Booker from the Battle Royal, but Teddy Long doesn't want their differences on his show anymore. On this week's show, the United States title will be on the line in a No Disqualification bout, as both Benoit and Booker T look to finally put an end to their feud.
Two more men who have been at one another's throats of late are the former World Heavyweight Champion John "Bradshaw" Layfield and Matt Hardy. JBL took a disliking to Hardy in the weeks before Armageddon, and it escalated further last week. Despite JBL defeating Hardy in their one-on-one match up, the former WWE Tag Team Champion got the last laugh, as he helped eliminate Bradshaw from the Battle Royal. With the World Heavyweight Championship meaning more to JBL than life itself, the backlash for Matt Hardy will be far from light.
And The Animal, Batista, will be in attendance on Smackdown, and we also will see appearances from MNM, Kid Kash, Lashley, and so many more. Also, tune in for a special appearance from the injured Ken Kennedy, as he joins us once again to let us know how his rehab is coming along. Friday Night Smackdown comes on at 8/7 central on Friday Night, don't miss it, its going to be a Smackdown to remember..
