WWE Friday Night Smackdown Preview, April 10th 2009
"Number NONE Contender?"
John Cena and The Big Show were both hoping to walk into Smackdown as the number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship. But due to Edge's interference in the main event on Raw, this was made impossible for both men. With no General Manager on either show, how will this three way mess be resolved? All three men are scheduled to be in attendance this Friday night. Will Edge find another way to avoid defending his title or will The Champ or The Largest Athlete in the World find a way to outsmart The Ultimate Opportunist?
One man who has found himself on a considerable roll as of late is Mr MITB, CM Punk. After adding another notch to his belt this past Monday night, The Straight Edge Master is set to open the show and address the world as of his plans for the briefcase. Both World Heavyweight Champion, Edge and WWE Champion Randy Orton had better be on their toes as the briefcase can be cashed in at any time. Could Friday be the night?
And speaking of the WWE Champion, one has to wonder if there will be any retaliation for his despicable treatment of Linda McMahon as Raw went off the air Monday night. But with all McMahon's seemingly out of the picture, it looks as if The Viper will reign supreme until a General Manager is instilled after Backlash. Even then, it's still a question as to whether he will follow their instruction.
Also, The Undertaker has promised to address Shawn Michaels and his challenge for a rematch at Backlash. Will The Deadman be looking forward to a second clash with Mr Wrestlemania?
All this and more on Friday Night Smackdown!
