WWE Friday Night Smackdown! Preview: Championship Still Champ-Less!

Adam WrightSenior Analyst IMay 23, 2008

As Friday Night Smackdown airs tonight from the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa, we all expect an announcement concerning the STILL vacated WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

At WWE Judgment Day, it looked like The Undertaker was victorious against the “Rated R Superstar” Edge via count-out. As the full house crowd was on their feet celebrating the “Dead Man’s“ World Title victory, Smackdown! General Manager came out to crash the party.

Vickie Guerrero announces that its common knowledge that the World Title cannot be won by count-out, meaning the Title is still VACANT! An angry Undertaker took his frustrations on Edge, hitting a Tombstone.

With the WWE World Title still with no Champion, it is expected that GM Vickie Guerrero will make an announcement concerning the vacated Title. You better believe “The Phenom” will be listening very carefully, as will the former World Champ Edge.   

Speaking about GM Guerrero, last week her assistant Teddy Long had enough and “quit”. To our surprise, he showed up on RAW last Monday Night. Tonight on Friday Night Smackdown, Teddy Long will be the special guest on MVP’s VIP Lounge. What will Long have to say about his future? You better believe MVP will be in a foul mood about his loss against Jeff Hardy at Judgment Day. Holla Holla!, tonight will be BALLIN in the VIP Lounge!

Shawn Michaels managed to sneak a victory pass Chris Jericho at Judgment Day, but later on that night, “The Heartbreak Kid” was confronted by an angry Batista. Last Monday Night RAW, Batista earned his way to a match against Shawn Michaels at One Night Stand. What will “The Animal” have to say before his Stretcher Match against Shawn Michaels?

All this and so much more on an action packed Friday Night Smackdown! Will the undefeated Kozlov continue plowing through his competition? How will Kofi Kingston bounce back from his first ever lost on ECW?

Tune in tonight on The CW or The Score! And see you all back here from my Monday Night RAW preview!
