Re: Legend Presents: WWE 2006 - Stop Your Grinnin' And Drop Your Linen
With only 48-hours remaining before SmackDown’s Pay Per View extravaganza this Sunday, Judgment Day, the Friday Night Flagship rolls into Albuquerque, New Mexico with a contract to be signed, and a main event certain to continue the anarchic trend of the brand since WrestleMania XXII.
At Judgment Day, Finlay, the United States Champion Rey Mysterio, Booker T, and the former World Heavyweight Champion, ‘The Animal’ Batista will compete in a Fatal Four-Way Match to determine who will challenge Edge, the self-proclaimed ‘Rated R Superstar’, for the World Heavyweight Championship in the main event. But this week on Friday Night SmackDown!, two sets of these men will be forced to join forces to battle one another in a tag team main event extravaganza. Former WWE Tag Team Champions and supposed friends Rey Mysterio and Batista will take on the man who Rey defeated to retain his United States Title last week, Booker T, and the man who scored a major upset over ‘The Animal’ in last week’s Belfast Brawl, Finlay. There is enough friction between the four superstars to guarantee carnage, but that isn’t quite good enough for Co-Executive Vice President Shane McMahon, who has thrown … the World Heavyweight Champion Edge into the mix as the Special Guest Referee. A preview of this Sunday some say, when Shane O’ Mac himself pulls on the striped referees jersey, but what will be the outcome? Who will be left standing as we head into Judgment Day?
Also, after weeks of anticipation, weeks of suspense, of hints, teasing, and disappointment on our behalf, Stephanie McMahon has finally had enough of Bobby Lashley and his agent Paul Heyman’s games. This week on Friday Night SmackDown!, we will witness the official contract signing for the much anticipated ‘WrestleMania Rematch’ between Lashley and The Undertaker … where Heyman and ‘The Real Deal’ will reveal to the world and, perhaps more importantly, The Undertaker himself just what is the stipulation they have chosen for this collision. With these two monsters going face to face in the same ring for the first time since that fateful night on April 2nd, is yet more destruction guaranteed?
After last week’s incredible 20-minute time limit draw, there can be no denying that absolutely nothing was settled between long-time rivals The Hooligans and MNM. Paul London & Brian Kendrick couldn’t get their first victory over The A-Listers, and Johnny Nitro & Joey Mercury were unable to prove their superiority once and for all, but this week the two young teams get one more chance to bury the hatchet before they join forces at Judgment Day. They will hook it up for the second week running, in what should be yet another tag team classic … with WWE Tag Team Champions The Bluebloods, and The Basham Brothers, no doubt keeping a watchful eye on proceedings.
The undefeated ‘Shooter’ Brent Albright faces his greatest challenge yet this week, as the arrogant youngster faces the Cruiserweight Champion of the World Jamie Noble in what should be an extremely hard-hitting affair. Both men’s respective Judgment Day opponents, Hardcore Holly, and Noble’s challenger Kid Kash, will face off against one another also. Which tandem will emerge from the fray with the momentum?
With only days before his huge Pay Per View meeting with the returning Matt Hardy, Mr. Kennedy has asked for a match to give us “a little taste” of what to expect this Sunday. Kennedy has been nothing short of dominant since his debut here in the WWE, remaining undefeated, and will his opponent this upcoming Friday Night just prove to be another victim?
Also, watch out for the incomparable John “Bradshaw” Layfield, as he has promised, once again, to be in Albuquerque this Friday to continue his quest for a World Heavyweight Championship shot. Will he target The McMahon’s once more … or a new victim?
