Who Is the True King Of SmackDown?

Svyato RovenchukSenior Writer IFebruary 21, 2009

As you all know SmackDown has two major titles (World Heavyweight Title and WWE Title). The fact that SmackDown has two major champions leads you to think "Who really is the king of SmackDown?"

Is it The Game, Triple H or The Rated R Superstar, Edge? Well I say let the debate begin!


Edge is the World Heavyweight Champion. He "stole" that title from Raw at No Way Out. He attacked Kofi Kingston before the match and then put himself in the match and eventually won (this was after he surrendered the WWE title to Triple H).

Although he is the current World Champion he already has people waiting to face him for the title (Cena, Jeff Hardy, etc). And for me personally I do not see him successfully retaining the World Title against Jeff Hardy (so maybe I'll have another article with the same title, but different candidates).

Edge is after all the Ultimate Opportunist and that was an Ultimate Opportunity that he capitalized on (I know it was scripted but still).

Plus, he has the General Manager of SmackDown, Vickie Guerrero, on his side too. This man has got it all, but like I said before I do not see him retaining against Hardy, Cena maybe, but Hardy no.

Triple H

Triple H is the WWE champion. He wasn't kidding when he said he loves the Elimination Chamber, because that Chamber made him, The Game a 13 champion (just a quick note: Triple H is only three more WWE/World titles away from Ric Flair's record of 16).

At the end there were two future Hall of Famers standing: Triple H and The Undertaker. The Game fought hard and landed a pedigree on The Deadman to become the champ, but there might be something else on his mind like Randy Orton.

Randy Orton is messing with Triple H's wife and her family (his In-Laws). So that maybe the first thing on his mind and to see Orton vs Triple H at Wrestlemania 25 would be an event I would never forget!

I do see Triple H retaining against Orton though. So that's one thing that might make The King Of Kings better. Another thing is that The Game has more experience. The Game is one of the better reasons to watch SmackDown, but so is Edge.


You all probably expected this article to only have two people, but you're wrong! There are also two other men who are strong candidates for this category.

I'm talking about The Undertaker and Jeff Hardy. They might not be champions, but they both are really great!

Undertaker: The Deadman is one of the best WWE superstars present today. He is amazing in the ring, good on the mic, and has unbelievable charisma. He also has that 16-0 Wrestlemania streak. Honestly, I really couldn't leave this man out of the article.

Jeff Hardy: The Charismatic enigma is another big reason to watch SmackDown. The Energy this man brings to the ring is too much. He's great on the mic, obviously has charisma, and he can do moves that make you say "fake or not, that's wicked." Jeff Hardy may not hold a title now, but I do see one in his future soon. He is yet another good candidate for the title of "SmackDown King."


In my opinion, (I know you people will disagree) Triple H is the "King of SmackDown."
