Official WWE SmackDown! Preview – August 8 2008
SmackDown color commentator Mick Foley – Edge’s unannounced special guest on “The Cutting Edge” – suffered a brutal attack after turning down the opportunity to instruct the Rated-R Superstar on how to the beat Undertaker in their Hell in a Cell Match at SummerSlam. Can Edge find another way to overcome his SummerSlam nightmare in time? Or is he destined to become another victim of The Deadman’s wrath in the sadistic structure?
After picking up a victory over Jimmy Wang Yang, Montel Vontavious Porter suffered the Twist of Fate from an enraged Jeff Hardy. Later, MVP’s presence during Hardy’s match with WWE Champion Triple H’s SummerSlam opponent, The Great Khali, proved enough of a distraction for the Punjabi Giant to squash Hardy with the dreaded Vise Grip. As this smoldering rivalry heats up, who will get burned in the weeks to come?
Big Show and Umaga seem to be on a collision course of epic proportions. After trouble during last week’s Biggest Blockbuster of the Summer Battle Royal that determined the No. 1 contender for the WWE Championship, the Samoan Bulldozer came to the ring to size-up The Largest Athlete in the World. Could these two gargantuan Superstars be heading toward a true clash of the Titians?
The Brian Kendrick continued his winning streak and his cocky attitude with a win over Stevie Richards. Can Kendrick and his associate Ezekiel continue to put their money where Kendrick’s mouth is?
A very determined Mr. Kennedy defeated United States Champion Shelton Benjamin in an intense non-title match. With Benjamin informing the WWE Universe of his acute case of bronchitis, will the Gold Standard find himself coughing up the gold soon?
