WWE.com has posted the below Smackdown preview for tonight’s show, as well as several articles on the latest Smackdown storylines (including Lashley seeking revenge over King Booker, Kurt hoping to leave SD with a bang and more)…
Long live King Booker
June 2, 2006
SmackDown is officially under the rule of a new King as the Superstars head to the Pacific Northwest.
Queen Sharmell’s man, King Booker, will be in action against the same man he defeated to become King of the Ring – Lashley. Lashley is coming off a huge week as he defeated JBL to become the new United States Champion. Since King Booker needed the help of Finlay to become the King of the Ring at Judgment Day, Lashley is surely out for revenge. Will King Booker be able to stave off the challenge or will Lashley knock the king off his throne?
Plus, in his SmackDown farewell, Kurt Angle will wrestle World Champion Rey Mysterio one last time.
And Mark Henry added another name to his list of victims last week as well, taking out Chris Benoit. Will the World’s Strongest Man be looking for another conquest in Portland?
Tune in to see it all unfold Friday night at 8/7 CT on UPN.
Also on WWE.com is a look at the venue for tonight’s show, the Rose Garden in Portland, and the latest Cole Report MP3 where he looks at memories of Kurt Angle’s time on SD.
