WWE: Advertised Line-Up for SmackDown’s All Star Kick-Off

During last night’s World Broadcast Premiere of WrestleMania XXIV on MyNetworkTV, ads were ran for the All Star Kick-Off. The first one featured an All Star 8-Man Tag that would see RAW’s Batista, RAW’s Rey Mysterio, ECW’s Finlay, & SD’s Jeff Hardy taking on RAW’s JBL, RAW’s Kane, SD’s MVP, & SD’s The Brian Kendrick. The ads that followed advertised the match as RAW’s Batista, RAW’s CM Punk, RAW’s Rey Mysterio, & SD’s Jeff Hardy facing RAW’s JBL, SD’s Big Show, RAW’s Kane, & SD’s The Great Khali. The problem with that one is that several sites have reported a 6-Man Tag having CM Punk teaming with Carlito & Primo to take on Manu, Cody Rhodes, & Ted DiBiase. It is expected that Kofi Kingston will sub got Punk in the match or it will be a regular tag match. In any case, here is the advertised line-up for SmackDown’s All Star Kick-Off on MyNetworkTV tonight at 8/7c:

  • Champion Vs. Champion Vs. Champion: Triple Threat: WWE Champion Triple H (SD) Vs. World Heavyweight Champion Chris Jericho (RAW) Vs. ECW Champion Matt Hardy (ECW)
  • All Star 8-Man Tag Match: Batista (RAW), CM Punk (RAW), Rey Mysterio (RAW), & Jeff Hardy (SD) Vs. JBL (RAW), Big Show (SD), Kane (RAW), & The Great Khali (SD)
