Notes based on the international airing of the show
-- The Hornswoggle/Booker spinaroonie segment does air.
-- SmackDown finishes with the Henry/Big Show confrontation that Billy alluded to. Mark Henry comes down to the ring to answer Big Show's request for a title match - he says no. Big Show runs down to ringside and attacks Henry, at which point he is beset upon by officials. He fights them off and spears Henry, he continues the beating before the officials intervene again. Henry beats a retreat up the ramp as Show clobbers the indy workers. Show chases after Henry, but Henry turns the tables and tosses Show into the security wall. Henry heads over to the announce table and sets it up for more Big Show punishment, satisfied with his efforts he drags Show's carcass over to the table, but Show comes to life and hits the Show Stopper through the table. Show fetches Henry's favourite weapon - the chair - and puts Henry's ankle in it, which brings Teddy Long running out telling Show he's got his Title Match as long as he doesn't jump on the chair. Show starts to leave, but reconsiders, picking up the chair and slamming it over Henry's back. At which point SmackDown ends with Henry amongst the ruined table.
Also, Cole made Booker look like a complete idiot again. They were talking about the Triple H situation and Booker started defending Trips...naturally Cole was incredulous given Booker walked out on Monday, Booker's response - he needed to go to the restroom (yes, that was his stated reason for walking out). Cole on the other hand, defended his reasons for walking out stating he did it in support of the superstars, because of them he can put his kids through college - if they don't want to work, he's out of a job. Not a good week for Booker on commentary.
