[WWE] “Not Without Sting,” Chief Jay, Smackdown Preemptions & More

WWE.com has posted an interview with hall of famer Chief Jay Strongbow here. He talks about being at WWE Homecoming on USA Network on October 3.

Also, to promote last night’s episode of ByteThis!, WWE.com has put a picture of Sting on the main page. Last night’s guest Eric Bischoff said that a WCW reunion show wouldn’t work without Sting and the other big names that were known for being WCW guys.

WWE.com has also posted the following Smackdown preview, including a list of markets that will not be showing the episode in the normal Friday timeslot:

Teaming Up
September 23, 2005

Last week, it was revealed that Eddie Guerrero would be the new No. 1 Contender to Batista’s World Heavyweight Championship. Those two will meet at No Mercy on Oct. 9.

It turns out that Batista and Latino Heat will actually join forces this week when they take on former WWE Tag Team Champions MNM.

This comes after last week when Eddie told Batista that he was a changed man with less anger. In fact, he praised Batista for his recent accomplishments.

Also, Rey Mysterio, who beat JBL last week, will take on red-hot newcomer Ken Kennedy. Plus, Christian faces Booker T.
