Re: Being The Booker
The Smackdown crew hits Worcester on the final stop towards Judgment Day, and despite the first Smackdown PPV of 2007 coming up in just forty eight hours, the General Manager Arn Anderson has still provided a PPV worthy main event this week on Smackdown, pitting 'The Iron Man' Brock Lesnar against 'The Rated R Superstar' Edge. Both men will surely have one eye on the WWE Championship Fatal Four Way Elimination Match at Judgment Day, but both will also want to settle the score between each other on Smackdown.
Meanwhile, Randy Orton has had a week to relive last weeks shocking conclusion to Smackdown, which saw the shocking return of Rob Van Dam. Question marks still remain over the health of Van Dam, merely seven weeks after suffering a sick blow to the head from Orton at WrestleMania, and indeed, RVD has signed a 'hold harmless agreement' in order to compete at Judgment Day. Despite his spectacular return last week ... is RVD fit to compete at Judgment Day??
One man that WILL be fit to compete on Sunday is Carlito. After suffering a horrifying knee injury at the hands of MVP last month, Carlito has been on the sidelines, but tonight, 'The Cool One' makes his return to Smackdown, and plans to confront MVP, one week after Porter savagely destroyed the knee of Carlitos younger brother, Primo. After having to relive the assault that put him on the shelf inflicted on his own brother, what kind of mindset can we expect to see Carlito in on Smackdown?? And, will he even be able to wait another forty eight hours to get his hands on his hated foe??
Elsewhere, Paul London will be in action, as he gears up for the biggest opportunity of his career at Judgment Day when he takes on Brent Albright for the United States Title, by taking on a former United States Champion in Charlie Haas. Given the bond formed in recent months between Haas and Albright, can we expect Haas to 'rough up' London, and soften him up ahead of the title match on Sunday?? Brent Albright is likely to be in attendance, and has made no secret of his frustrations over the favoritism shown towards London in recent weeks by his interview on Superstars this past Tuesday. Will Albright have a final message for his challenger on Smackdown??
After the lack of respect shown towards Hulk Hogan last week, JBL has been barred from appearing on Smackdown this week. Hulk Hogan will not be appearing either, but after last weeks insulting video package from JBL, Arn Anderson has promised to 'right that wrong' this week on Smackdown.
And, the Smackdown half of the 2007 King of the Ring tournament kicks off tonight, as Finlay takes on Garrison Cade, just two days before the two men clash at Judgment Day in the six man tag team challenge, in which Cade teams with his New Wave brethren; Ken Doane and Nick Dinsmore, and Finlay teams with the mismash of the high flying Jeff Hardy and 'The Animal' Batista. Which of these men can strike first blood this week??
Non-Title Match | Americas Most Wanted vs The Mad Murdoch Twins
King of the Ring; Round 1 | Finlay vs Garrison Cade
Paul London vs Charlie Haas
Chavo Guerrero vs Deuce
Brock Lesnar vs Edge
Show to be posted tomorrow ... Judgment Day to follow ... erm, ... eventually
