Hadean history is guaranteed when The Undertaker meets Batista inside
Hell in a Cell one week from Sunday, at this yearÆs Survivor Series.
But first The Deadman has an equally epic challenge awaiting him this
Friday on SmackDown: A Phenom-requested ôNo Holds Barredö contest
against the 7-foot-3, 420-pound Punjabi powerhouse, The Great Khali.
After laying down the gauntlet to meet the World Heavyweight Champion
in a hellish rubber match within the steel confines of Hell,
Undertaker teamed with Batista to face The Great Khali & Mark Henry
last week. Unfortunately, the match ended in controversy when
SmackDown commentator JBL interfered, delivering Clotheslines from
Hell to The Animal and The Phenom. Hopefully, the outspoken ôWrestling
Godö will remain behind the announcersÆ table when Undertaker and
Khali go one-on-one in Bakersfield, Calif. The Deadman has managed to
triumph over the Punjabi Goliath before. However, unlike Khali, heÆs
not facing the dwarfish McMahon, Hornswoggle, at Survivor Series.
Battling the Indian behemoth under an anything-goes stipulation like
ôNo Holds Barred,ö and only nine days before Survivor Series, what
condition will FridayÆs showdown leave Undertaker in when he faces the
champion Animal in ôHellö?
Rey Mysterio was victorious over Jamie Noble last week, though it
didnÆt stop Finlay from getting on the mic and calling the Master of
the 619 a loser. The ornery Irishman even promised to prove that fact
to our fans on SmackDown this coming Friday, when he and Mysterio step
into the squared circle and continue their ongoing rivalry. Rey may
have gotten the better of Finlay at Cyber Sunday, but does the Celtic
combatant have something nefarious in mind when they lock up in
ECW World Champion CM Punk will be on hand for Friday Night SmackDown.
Clearly, the ECW-SmackDown working agreement between respective
General Managers Armando Estrada and Vickie Guerrero continues to pay
off, amping up the level of competition for both brands. What brings
the ECW World Champion to SmackDown this week, and how well will he be
received by the Friday night brandÆs Superstars?
Also, there will be a Ten-Man Tag Team Over the Top Rope Battle Royal
on SmackDown with the winning team earning a match against the WWE Tag
Team Champions MVP & Matt Hardy on the same night. Who will
participate in the contest Friday night, and will the winning team be
ready to face the formidable team of the Ballin' Superstar & Hardy?
How will Matt Hardy fare in his return after being out of action with
a head injury, and will that time off cost him and the Franchise Playa
For the answers to these questions and more, tune into Friday Night
The UK SmackDown airing has something called 'From The Vault'. This
is basically a classic match from WWE's vault. We choose to include
this as it's always good to see good ol' classic matches :)
This week it's Rey Mysterio Vs JBL - September 2005. Enjoy!
