Smackdown Preview for September 7, 2007



Preview: Balla’s only
September 7, 2007

SmackDown will kick off with the United States Champion MVP hosting another installment of his VIP Lounge. His guests? The WWE Tag Team Champions Matt Hardy and…MVP. The “half-man, half-amazing” Superstar will be a guest as well as the host when he welcomes his tag partner Hardy back across the velvet ropes. Will the unlikely duo have more to say about their title reign?

Rey Mysterio soared in his SmackDown return last week, winning a Championship Competition to become the No. 1 Contender for The Great Khali’s World Heavyweight Title at Unforgiven. Then why is he jeopardizing his championship opportunity on SmackDown this Friday night, by accepting Chavo Guerrero’s challenge to an “I Quit” Match? The Sultan of the 619 already defeated Guerrero at SummerSlam, so what more does he have to prove? One has to wonder if Mysterio has truly considered the added pressure a contest like this may produce on his surgically repaired knee, which resulted when his last “I Quit” Match with Chavo put him out of action for 10 months. If painful history repeats itself Friday night, will Rey find himself out of the World Title hunt?

Also next Friday on SmackDown, Mr. McMahon and Jonathan Coachman continue their search for the Chairman’s bastard Superstar son. As the most talked-about sex scandal in sports-entertainment continues to unfold, what other clues will shed some light into Mr. McMahon’s sticky situation?

Find out the answers to these questions and more on SmackDown this Friday night, 8/7 CT, only on The CW Network.
