WWE Friday Night Smackdown Preview- 23/9/05- Lubbock, Texas
For the past few weeks Kurt Angle and Randy Orton have joined forces in trying to take over Friday Night Smackdown but last week them running roughshod over the blue brand came to one hell of a halt. Teddy Long stamped his authority, some might say finally, as he dished out a huge One Hundred Thousand dollar fine to both men as well as banning both men from any unsanctioned physical contact. The major thing for Angle and Orton however is that despite the fine and despite the ban, they both now have exactly what they were gunning for, a WWE Championship match. Whilst laying down the law Teddy Long also caved in, announcing that Angle and Orton, along with The Undertaker would challenge John Cena at No Mercy in a Fatal 4 Way Elimination match. Tonight, Angle will be in action against the angry Deadman, will Randy Orton stand by the side of the Wrestling Machine or is it now every man for himself as the race to No Mercy begins?
Speaking of Teddy Long stamping his authority last week, Angle and Orton weren’t the only ones on the receiving end. The WWE Champion was also punished for a devastating FU to the Smackdown GM with John Cena being suspended for one week meaning tonight in Lubbock there will be NO WWE Champion. Cena knows that if he appears tonight and breaks his suspension he will be stripped of the WWE Championship. The Champ surely won’t risk his title reign just for a shot at Angle and Orton…will he?
Tonight will mark match number one in a Best of Five Series for the United States Title as Matt Hardy defends against Carlito. The Apple Spitter has claimed that Hardy beating him at Summerslam was a fluke and that ninety nine times out of a hundred, he’d beat the former Team Extreme man. Well Hardy laid his cards out on the table, issuing a Best of Five challenge which Carlito duly accepted. Will Lito prove himself tonight and steal a march or will Hardy get another ‘fluke’ under his belt and take the lead in this five match battle?
A huge eight man tag team match is also set for tonight as the WWE Tag Team Champions, on a bit of a downward slope of late, MNM will team with two men who’ve also had a bit of a turn for the worse in recent weeks, Cruiserweight Champion Gregory Helms and Chavo Guerrero. Those four will take on their respective rivals of late as Rob Van Dam, Rey Mysterio, Paul London and Brian Kendrick will join forces to build one of the best high flying teams you’re likely to see! Will MNM, Helms and Chavo pull off a timely victory and boost their confidence ahead of their showdowns at No Mercy? Or will the recent upturn in fortunes continue for Van Dam, Rey, London and Kendrick?
And finally, last week saw the return of Bobby Lashley and in a big way as the ‘Real Deal’ took down JBL in devastating fashion, seemingly accepting the First Blood match for No Mercy. Tonight Lashley returns to action and will no doubt be looking to send a message to the Wall Street Warrior.
