Re: World Wrestling Entertainment: The 2002 Diaries
nothing? disappointing but hey, what can you do.
WWE SmackDown! | July 4th 2002 | Boston Massachusetts
Smackdown this week is aired from the Fleet Center in Boston Massachusetts as the WWE celebrates the 4th of July episode of Smackdown. Who better then to kick off the show then the reigning United States Champion, Olympic Gold Medalist and number 1 contender for the Undisputed title for Vengeance; Kurt Angle. Angle has requested some air-time and will kick off the show, possibly talking about his interactions with the Undertaker on Raw and him leaving the Undertaker tapping out to the Ankle Lock on the outside of the ring up the entrance ramp. There is no word as to if the Undertaker is in the arena here tonight but if the American Badass shows up, things are bound to get physical. And where will Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar be in all of this triangle story? Brock who is the King of the Ring winner has made his presence felt in the Undertaker's business the past fortnight making it clear that he wants him at Summerslam for the title.
Last week Eddie Guerrero was revealed to be part of the trade by Raw's General Manager, Shawn Michaels as the newest member of the Smackdown roster. The former Intercontinental Champion showed up during Rey Mysterio and his nephew, Chavo Guerrero's match, costing Rey the victory and celebrating soon after with Chavo. Later on in the show however, Rey would be seen laid out in the hallway as he was jumped from behind and attacked. Eddie and Chavo came running to the scene and aided, calling officials and personal to come and help however, the attacker is still unknown. Eddie and Chavo are here tonight and have promised to try and reveal the identity of who attacked Rey Mysterio and find the person. Who can it be? And what does this hold for either of them in the future as we head into Vengeance?
John "the Prototype" Cena would badmouth Chris Jericho last week, Jericho who is still out via injury after the career shortening Hell in a Cell match with Triple H back at Judgment Day two months ago, has yet to make his return to Smackdown however, when a video package hyping up his inevitable comeback for the Summer aired, Cena would take this oppertunity to explain how he is better then Jericho at everything and gain heat. Will Cena continue his verbal assault on Jericho or will Jericho have something to say about it? Will Jericho appear this week on the 4th of July episode of Smackdown or is something else in store for the 'Prototype'.
Last week rookie Randy Orton gained a surprise shocker of a victory over Lance Storm. Will Randy Orton's luck continue or will things pan out differently for the third generation superstar in their rematch this week?
Last week we saw the debut of Devon Dudley's new persona, calling himself Reverend Devon and siding himself with one big individual, Brother Batista. Devon will be in action here tonight as well as apperances from Edge, the Hurricane, Christian, the Tag Team Champions Rikishi and Scotty 2 Hotty as well as many more.
