What will happen on SmackDown this week after last week’s historic events? On the last SmackDown, Kurt Angle shocked the world by entering — and winning — the Battle Royal to determine the new World Heavyweight Champion. In that Battle Royal, Mark Henry and Rey Mysterio were the last two men eliminated. This week, Henry and Mysterio will meet one on one to determine the No. 1 Contender to the World Heavyweight Championship. Who will step up to become the next challenger for Kurt Angle, and will he be watching?

Also last week, Randy Orton found a way to defeat Chris Benoit — handing Booker T the United States Championship. Afterward, “The Legend Killer” said that Booker owed him one. This week, Booker T will celebrate his “victory.” Will Randy crash the celebration or try to cash in that favor on SmackDown?

In addition, fighting Finlay will debut, taking on Matt Hardy. After weeks of introductory videos, how will Finlay fare against the stiff competition on SmackDown?

Plus, JBL will meet the undefeated Lashley. Can the powerful newcomer keep his streak alive, or will the self-proclaimed “Wrestling God” be the one to end it?
