Smackdown Preview 05.15.09
Another champion looking ahead to Judgment Day is Rey Mysterio. Mysterio who is the Intercontinental champ, was recently challenged by cocky superstar, Chris Jericho. Both men are newcomers to Smackdown, but Jericho continues to be a loudmouth now that he's on a new show. Mysterio seemed to have the laugh at Jericho's expense recently, as he shoved Jericho down to the ground. You'd have to wonder if Jericho will find a way to retaliate on tonight's episode of Smackdown. Will Jericho hit Mysterio with a sneak attack prior to the Pay-Per-View? How will these superstars prepare for Judgment Day tonight?
And finally, a feud which was hatched several weeks ago, saw the Samoan Bulldozer, Umaga rush the ring and attack the 2009 Money in the Bank winner, CM Punk. Punk had just defeated Edge in a non-title contest and was ready to cash in to claim the World Heavyweight title. Umaga spoiled the party when he came in and ended up leveling the Straightedged Superstar, Punk. Umaga continued to show up and attack Punk in other weeks, leading up to their impending fight at Judgment Day. Will Umaga strike again on tonight's episode, or will CM Punk find a way to attack Umaga?
Also tonight, a divas tag match featuring Gali Kim and Womens Champion Melina against Michelle McCool and Alicia Fox!
Catch Smackdown tonight at 8PM EST on MyNetworkTV ahead of the Judgment Day PPV!
