Official WWE SmackDown Preview For Next Week

The following is from

Who's heading to WrestleMania?
March 3, 2006

The final slot in the main event at WrestleMania 22 will be determined when Friday Night SmackDown rolls into Washington, D.C., this week.


At No Way Out, Kurt Angle defeated Undertaker to retain the World Heavyweight Championship. Last week, General Manager Theodore Long announced that as a treat to the fans that support SmackDown, the two men agreed to go at it once more, and they will meet for the gold this week. Randy Orton & Rey Mysterio are both already in the Triple Threat Match for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 22; will it be the Wrestling Machine or the Deadman who walks out of the nation s capital with the gold and heads to the biggest stage of them all?

Last week, it was announced that Theodore Long was forcing Gregory Helms to back up his claim of being the greatest cruiserweight ever by making Helms defend the Cruiserweight Championship every week. Last week, Helms pinned Psicosis to retain the gold; who will be this week s challenger?


Plus, the Boogeyman spooked Booker T & Sharmell again last week. Boogeyman stalked the couple, forcing them to retreat through the crowd, and proceeded to dump a bag full of worms onto the announce table. Will Booker & Sharmell have anything to say about Boogeyman s bizarre antics?

To find out the answers to these questions and more, tune into UPN this Friday night at 8/7 CT.
