Last Man Standing
August 18, 2006
Last week on SmackDown, The Great Khali and Daivari tried their best to avoid Undertaker. Instead, Khali received a thunderous chokeslam and was ordered to face Undertaker in the Last Man Standing Match not at SummerSlam, but at SmackDown instead. This week, the monsters will meet in perhaps the most brutal match in SmackDown history.
As first reported on WWE.com, Rey Mysterio and Chavo Guererro will face off at SummerSlam. The bitter family feud escalated to another level last week, and Eddie Guerrero’s widow Vickie was involved again. The emotionally distraught Vickie found herself on the arena floor after being inadvertently knocked off her feet. What will Rey and Chavo have to say for themselves just two days from their big showdown?
Last week, we learned that King Booker will be defending his World Heavyweight Championship against Batista at SummerSlam. The Animal warmed up by teaming with Lashley and taking out Finlay and Regal in tag team action. Meanwhile, King Booker scouted from the announce position. Batista will be making a return to his hometown of Washington D.C. on Friday, what will he and King Booker do to prepare for their huge match just two days away from SummerSlam?
The United States Championship will be on the line when the rivalry between current Champ Finlay and the hard-hitting Lashley continues this Friday on SmackDown. Finlay has managed to hold on to the gold so far, but will his luck continue this Friday?
Just more than a week away from the biggest party of the summer, there are still many issues to be sorted out. What will happen as the road to SummerSlam comes to a close? Tune in for yourself, Friday night at 8/7 CT and only on UPN.
