Smackdown Preview for June 22, 2007



Preview:Nights of opportunity
June 22, 2007

Rumors are abound that lead investigator Daniel Beck plans on making an announcement regarding the case of Mr. McMahon’s limo explosion. Is it a new lead? Perhaps new evidence? Has he solved the mystery behind who really planned the event? Has somebody been charged?

Speaking of which, when SmackDown kicks off with The Cutting Edge, the host has some wild accusations on the explosion of Mr. McMahon’s limo. What exactly will the controversial Rated-R Superstar have to say? How will his Cutting Edge “testimony” affect the investigation of Mr. McMahon’s presumed demise?

Also, for the first time since the WWE Draft, Batista teams up with Ric Flair on SmackDown to take on their respective Vengeance: Night of Champions opponents, Edge and MVP. United States Champion Montel Vontavious Porter is as confident as ever going into Sunday night while World Heavyweight Champion Edge plans on making this the third straight pay-per-view where he successfully defends his title against Batista. The challengers, however, have other plans. Can they make a statement two nights before the Night of Champions? Wait till you see exactly how the tag team match gets made.

Finally, what impact will the Supplemental Draft have on the landscape of SmackDown? After receiving Flair, The Great Khali, Chris Masters and Torrie Wilson in the Draft on Raw, Friday nights have gained Kenny Dykstra, Eugene, Victoria and more. What role will these new faces play?

Tune in Friday at 8/7 CT on The CW Network to find out all the answers to these questions and much more on SmackDown.
