KANSAS CITY, Mo. – SmackDown’s Kane and Mark Henry faced off last Friday, in Henry’s first action since his loss to Undertaker four weeks ago. The Big Red Monster, meanwhile, was coming off his second appearance on ECW on Sci Fi, when the World’s Strongest Man and The Great Khali interrupted his match with Big Daddy V. Kane defeated the self-proclaimed Silverback with a chokeslam, and the fiery Superstar hopes to carry that momentum when he again invades the Land of the Extreme this Tuesday night. The four behemoths are set to meet in a Monster Mash Battle Royal with each hoping to be named the true monster of sports-entertainment on the eve of Halloween.
After facing The Great Khali and Undertaker in consecutive weeks, cruiserweight Jamie Noble hoped that his sweet-talking ways would soften Acting General Manager Vickie Guerrero’s decision-making. Noble’s attempts appeared to be working, until Guerrero informed him he had a match with the World Heavyweight Champion, Batista. The distraught Noble reluctantly made his way to the ring to face the champion, and The Animal wasted little time in decimating his overmatched opponent. Delivering a vicious Batista Bomb to Noble for the victory, the World Heavyweight Champion now heads toward his Cyber Sunday showdown with Undertaker.
Jesse & Festus continued their remarkable streak since debuting on SmackDown, defeating the team of Joe Hennig & Steve Fender. Once again, when the bell sounded to begin the match, Festus transformed from the reserved Superstar our fans are accustomed to seeing, into a monstrously intense in-ring competitor. Picking up another impressive win, the “Biscuits ‘n’ Gravy” tandem keeps their undefeated streak alive on SmackDown.
The 2007 WWE Diva Search Finalists Brooke and Eve made a very special appearance on SmackDown, and each took the opportunity to tell our fans why they shouldn’t vote for the other. The 2007 Diva Search winner will be announced Monday on Raw.
In an exciting match available exclusively on WWE.com, Chuck Palumbo squared off with Kenny Dykstra. Did the revved-up Superstar Palumbo pick up the win, or has the self-proclaimed future Hall of Famer added something impressive to his résumé?
As part of the new working partnership between SmackDown’s Acting GM Vickie Guerrero and ECW’s Armando Estrada, the three ECW Superstars who you can vote to be CM Punk’s opponent at Cyber Sunday were in a Triple Threat Match on SmackDown. Big Daddy V, John Morrison and The Miz all hope to be part of the ECW Championship Match this Sunday, and Friday night was their last chance to campaign for your votes. The Dominating Force in WWE defeated Morrison and Miz to claim the victory, but will that translate into a golden opportunity for Big Daddy V?
All for one, one for all
Partnered up for the very first time, Cyber Sunday opponents Rey Mysterio & Finlay seemed to momentarily put aside their differences when they faced the WWE Tag Team Champions (and Cyber Sunday opponents) Matt Hardy & MVP. But as Mysterio was about to pick up the victory, the Irishman showed his true intentions and double-crossed the Master of the 619, allowing the Ballin’ Superstar to take full advantage of the opening.
Wrestling God goes six feet under
Last week, JBL found himself the recipient of a spear from World Heavyweight Champion Batista after calling The Animal a coward. This week, the SmackDown commentator looked to interview The Phenom about the Batista-Undertaker showdown at Cyber Sunday, a match in which you choose JBL, Mick Foley or “Stone Cold” Steve Austin as the special guest referee. Instead, the former champion JBL berated The Deadman, reminding him of their rivalry from JBL’s in-ring days. Undertaker chokeslammed the self-proclaimed “Wrestling God,” but then his Cyber Sunday opponent Batista came out to deliver a message of his own to Undertaker.
