Undertaker was so close to the World Heavyweight Championship he could taste it. He hit Kurt Angle with the Tombstone. He made the cover. The referee began to make the count. And then it was over. Mark Henry stormed the ring and attacked the Deadman giving him the victory, but costing him the World Heavyweight Championship. Henry poured on the pain and left Undertaker laying with a thunderous splash through the SmackDown announce table. How will Undertaker respond? Will we find out Friday night on SmackDown?
On WWE.com Unlimited, General Manager Theodore Long announced that the WrestleMania “Money in the Bank” Ladder Match is now an interpromotional match. Long also declared that Qualifying Matches would begin this week on SmackDown. The first qualifier will take place Friday night as Lashley takes on Finlay. Last week the two had to be separated by several officials. With so much on the line, the intensity in this one should be at an all-time high.
Plus, Kristal will compete in her debut match on SmackDown. A couple of weeks ago on SmackDown, she came out to promote the new Divas Magazine. Jillian interrupted her and told her to go back to doing interviews. Kristal responded by ripping off Jillian’s top, leaving her embarrassed in her bra. Jillian will look to get even in a one-on-one match on SmackDown.
And the swashbuckling buccaneer Paul Burchill will compete in his first match since changing his ways. He is hoping that the match will be against his former partner William Regal. Will these former teammates do battle Friday night on SmackDown?
