WWE Friday Night SmackDown! Preview February 17th, 2006
This week Friday Night SmackDown! comes to you from Norfolk, Viginia a mere seventy-two hours away from SmackDown's first huge PPV of the year: No Way Out.
And what a Main Event General Manager has confirmed for this Friday. On wwe.com, Long announced that it would be the men that assaulted the team of Paul London and Brian Kendrick last week, the WWE Tag Team Champions MNM, facing off against not only the legendary Undertaker, but also the "Phenom's" No Way Out opponent, the World Heavyweight Champion Batista! For the last few months we have witnessed the rivalry between Batista and The Undertaker grow, and in just two nights it comes to a head, but will they be able to co-exist, or will they simply want to tear one another apart? MNM are perhaps the perfect team to capitalise on this dysfunctional tandom, but will they be too pre-occupied with their No Way Out challengers in London and Kendrick?
Last week, having finally had enough of the months and months of war between John 'Bradshaw' Layfield and Matt Hardy, Teddy Long gave the fans what they wanted and made a decisive match between the two for No Way Out. Hardy has been defending the honour of "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair ever since JBL put the sixteen-time World Champion out of action at the Royal Rumble, and last week interrupted Bradshaw's so-called 'Nature Boy Dedication Ceremony.' Will we see another confrontation between the two tonight, or will JBL continue on his jealous rampage against Ric Flair and all those who respect him?
Maybe the most hated man on the SmackDown! roster right now, Randy Orton last week told the world that he would not wrestle on Friday nights until Teddy Long gave into his demands and gave him another shot at the World Heavyweight Championship. Long has until No Way Out to give his answer, ot Orton has promised to take his ball and go to Monday Night Raw. Will the "Legend Killer" get what he wants, ot will Teddy Long show some more of that fighting spirit we have all come to respect?
The combustible Bobby Lashley will be in attendance also in Norfolk, still showing a new side to his personality, ever since his confrontation with The Undertaker at the Royal Rumble. Two men have made it their business to get in Lashley's way since them: one of them, the Fighting Irishman Finlay will face Lashley at No Way Out in what should be the most physical contest of the evening; the other, the returning Paul Heyman, has been dropping hints and persuing Lashley over the past few weeks. Will we discover his agenda tonight?
Rey Mysterio will also be in action, as he gets in some preparation ahead of his huge tag team match at No Way Out. It will be the team of Mr. Kennedy and the United States Champion taking on Rey Mysterio and an as of yet unannounced partner. Mysterio has had his problems with both Kennedy and Booker for weeks now, but does he still have an ace up his sleeve?
Last week, Cruiserweight Champion Kid Kash issued an Open Challenge for No Way Out to all cruiserweights, and tonight we will get a look at some of his competition, as Teddy Long has promised us a cruiserweight showcase tag team match up.
Also, watch out for the team of William Regal and Paul Burchill, as they look to get one over on their rivals, the Mexicools. They will all be in attendance in Virginia. Friday Night SmackDown! at 8/7 central on Friday night. Don't miss it; it's going to be a SmackDown! to remember...
