Smackdown Preview for February 23, 2007



Preview:No Way Fall-Out
February 23, 2007

Animal crossing

World Heavyweight Champion Batista vowed to Undertaker, “payback is a bitch,” and he followed through on those ominous words during the main event at No Way Out. The Animal leveled The Phenom with a Spinebuster, leaving Undertaker at the mercy of WWE Champion John Cena & HBK. Shawn Michaels delivered Sweet Chin Music and Cena gave Undertaker a FU to get the victory for the World Tag Team Champions.

On Friday night, The Animal will open the show in the ring, with a microphone. Batista will explain his controversial actions from No Way Out.

Coming home to the 619

Friday night on SmackDown, Rey Mysterio will make a special appearance in his hometown of San Diego. The IpayOne Center is sold out in anticipation of Rey’s appearance. Tune in to get an update on Rey’s recovery from knee surgery next Friday on the CW Network.

Money in the Bank Qualifier

The Money in the Bank qualifying matchups will continue Friday on SmackDown. So far, we know that former winner Edge will participate, and on Friday either Kane or King Booker will punch their ticket. The SmackDown royalty will go one-on-one in a Falls Count Anywhere match with Kane to determine who goes to WrestleMania.

Troy and Eric will have full coverage of tonight’s event here on Pulse Wrestling.

Matthew Michaels is editor emeritus of Pulse Wrestling, and has been since the site launched.
