Jolly old SmackDown
April 28, 2006
The World Heavyweight Championship will be on the line when Friday Night SmackDown emanates from London, England.
At WrestleMania 22, Rey Mysterio won the World Heavyweight Championship in a Triple Threat Match. In London, Rey will face the former champion Kurt Angle one on one. Can the Wrestling Machine become a seven-time champion, or will the ultimate underdog leave London with the gold still around his waist?
United States Champion JBL has issued a challenge to the winner of the World Heavyweight Championship match; however, during his Great American Celebration last week, JBL told the fans that he would first take his championship to England and face the finest England has to offer. Before he gets to the World Heavyweight Champion, who will JBL find to back up his claim?
Also, Bobby Lashley will face Mark Henry in the next King of the Ring tournament match. Kurt Angle and Booker T have already advanced to the semifinals; will it be the hard-hitting, soft-spoken Lashley or the World’s Strongest Man who joins them?
