Now that SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero has stripped Undertaker of the World Heavyweight Championship, when and where will the next champion be crowned? Will The Deadman be looking to reclaim his title as soon as possible? Will Edge try to leverage his relationship with the GM to get his hands on the gold once again? Or, will another Superstar step up and try to claim the title? (WATCH the SmackDown Rebound)
When Shawn Michaels defeated Batista at Backlash, he finally silenced one of his toughest critics. Or did he? After Chris Jerichoâ€™s recent Highlight Reel â€“ where Y2J accused HBK of faking his injury at Backlash â€“ Batista vowed to hurt HBK if he isnâ€™t truly injured. Will Batista keep his word?
When Big Show demolished The Great Khali at Backlash, he took down one of WWEâ€™s biggest Superstars. Last week on SmackDown, The Worldâ€™s Largest Athlete had a staredown with the Worldâ€™s Strongest Man, Mark Henry that ended with Big Show calling for Henry to pick on someone his own size. What will happen the next time these two behemoths encounter each other?
On last weekâ€™s Championship Friday edition of SmackDown, the WWE Tag Team Champions defended their title. But, with all the talk theyâ€™re doing in the Dirt Sheet, how long before they tick off the wrong person?
Also on Championship Friday, Matt Hardy retained his United States gold against Montel Vontavious Porter. MVP held onto the title for almost a year. How long can Hardy?
As Judgment Day approaches, find out the answers to these questions and more on Friday Night SmackDown at 8/7 CT on The CW Network.
