Thanks for those reviews, I will be returning all if I haven't already tonight and tomorrow, here is the SmackDown! recap....
National Car Rental Centre
Ft. Lauderdale; FL
The show opens with *Medal* hitting to a standing ovation from the crowd as Kurt Angle, the World Heavyweight Champion heads to the ring not looking too happy. Angle gets on the stick and says that Paul Heyman is already showing favourites and that Lesnar doesn't deserve his spot in the main event at Summerslam. *Millennium* hits and Jericho makes his way out with a mic in hand, and after a few typical insults and Y2J comments, Jericho agrees with Angle, calling Heyman's decision a joke, which brings a huge laugh from the crowd. *Whatever* then hits and Chris Benoit too agrees with Angle & Jericho, as the 3 men all seem to rip into the choice to add Lesnar to the WHC title match. Finally Paul Heyman comes out and says that if Angle, Benoit or Jericho had a problem with the choice, then they can pack their bags and head for the door, because SD! is gonna be run Heyman's way from now on, and not by the demands of a few select superstars. Heyman then says tonight Angle will take on Brock Lesnar one on one, in a non title match, which Angle gladfully accepts
After the break, Jeff Hardy takes on Muhammad Hassan, and Hassan manages to defeat Jeff with the Flatliner after a couple of minutes, Hassan & Davairi try to mug Jeff afterwards, but Matt Hardy cleans house and hits a Twist of Fate to Davairi, telling Hassan he's done at Summerslam
Backstage, MNM burst into Paul Heyman's office complaining about America's Most Wanted. Heyman says that seeing as MNM are the "greatest" tag team on SmackDown!, they should have no issue with defending their titles at Summerslam against AMW, which sends MNM livid, but they are made to live with it, as Heyman has security remove them from his office
Steve Romero interviews Booker T backstage, who says that Batista & Lashley are a bunch of "roid poppin' sucka's" that need to be tought a lesson, which is why Booker T is throwing the challenge down to them, to meet Booker T, Finlay & Regal at Summerslam, and that they'll find out what it's liked to be schooled by 3 "professionals"
In the upcoming tag match, Lashley & Batista begin to roll over Finlay & Regal, until Booker T's distraction on the referee allows Finlay to club Batista with the Shaleleigh, and Regal to nail a low blow to Lashley and then sock him with a shot from the brass knux! Lashley is busted wide open and Regal picks up the 3 count, as the trio smile and taunt Batista & Lashley, who stand in the ring, Batista gets a mic and says that their challenge for Summerslam is accepted
Goldberg is now seen backstage, he is warming up, when Paul Heyman approaches him, startling Goldberg for a moment until Goldberg realizes who it is. Heyman asks Goldberg is he will put pen to paper on a contract for he and Undertaker's match, and Goldberg notices that another signature is already on the contract, and he immediately throws Heyman against the wall, demanding to know when Undertaker signed this, and where. Heyman stuttered and finally said that he found the contract on his desk when he showed up today for work. Goldberg signed the contract, and then stormed off, leaving Heyman breathing heavily in shock
Ken Kennedy takes on Jamie Noble in shortish match, and just when it looks like Kennedy has the match won, Randy Orton sneaks up on him and plants him with an RKO! The ref calls for the bell as Orton tells Kennedy that if the youngster has the guts to back up his big words, there's a match awaiting him at Summerslam, and another RKO too
Matt Hardy now cuts a promo, telling Hassan that at Summerslam, he will find out why Matt Hardy "WILL NOT DIE"
AMW mop the floor with the FBI in a good matchup where they completely dominate for the most part, with the FBI struggling to mount a fight of any kind, and they finish off Nunzio with the Death Sentence, after Vito was taken out with a superkick
Kurt Angle is now with Steve Romero backstage, and he says that tonight he's gonna make Brock Lesnar wish he never got involved in the title picture, when he breaks Lesnar's ankle and makes him tap. Angle wraps it up by saying "O Brock, it's true. It's DAMN TRUE!"
In a huge main event that runs for over 20 minutes, Kurt Angle gets a count out victory over Lesnar when the two get out of control, and fight to the outside, where Angle counters an F5 attempt from Lesnar into an Angle Slam through the announce table! Angle then gets back in the ring and the ref counts out Lesnar, Angle drops to his knees exhausted when Chris Jericho comes through the crowd, takes the WHC off Angle and hits him across the face with it, Jericho then raises the WHC high, and Benoit is on the stage, staring his toothy grin at Jericho, who points to Benoit and says "It's mine!"
