WWE SmackDown Preview 06.01.07

Published

on

All roads lead to One Night Stand this week and two men who will be watching each other closely are World Heavyweight Champion Edge and Batista. This Friday, the Cutting Edge makes its debut on SmackDown and the Rated-R Superstar’s guest is the man he will face in a Steel Cage Match on Sunday: The Animal. What will transpire in Edge’s controversial talk segment? Will the champion’s mouth get him into deep trouble with the former champion, a mere 48 hours before their caged collision? Some other Superstars with golden aspirations will seek out Deuce & Domino on SmackDown as the champs defend their titles in a Triple Threat Match against Paul London & Brian Kendrick and the dangerous duo of William Regal & Dave Taylor. The boys from the Other Side of the Tracks hope to keep their reign as champions, but with London & Kendrick poised to regain their gold and Regal & Taylor hungry for their own taste of championship gold, can Deuce & Domino keep their titles? As if that wasn’t big enough, SmackDown takes things to a smaller level as Hornswoggle meets Little Boogeyman in a mini-sized match Friday night. These two tiny tusslers take out weeks of frustration on one another, but will their larger counterparts be far from the action? Finally, Vickie Guerrero has been named the Assistant General Manager of SmackDown. How will Vickie’s first night on the job go?

WWE superstar Daniel Bryan will be stepping into the ring to face the Miz at SummerSlam this Sunday in a match that has been close to a decade in the making, as the feud has gone on since Miz was Daniel Bryan’s “mentor” when Bryan was in NXT.

Bryan, who is likely to re-sign with WWE soon, discussed his goals for the remainder of his career, a career that he hopes will see him wrestling until he is 70 years old.

“For me, my goal is to enjoy this moment that I have in the WWE spotlight because that doesn’t last forever” Bryan said, in an interview with ESPN’s Arash Markazi. That really has taken hold since I was forced to retire. You have to appreciate every moment of this, but I also have to transition my style in a way that I could still be wrestling when I’m 70 years old. I want to transition my style slowly to something that’s a little bit easier on my body.”

“I have all these dream scenarios in my head where I would love to do this and that. I think that’s one of things that’s makes me so passionate about wrestling — the variety.”

WWE Hall of Famer and RAW producer Arn Anderson has had an impact on the WWE run of Samoa Joe, along with other wrestlers, who is preparing to face A.J. Styles for the WWE Heavyweight Championship this Sunday at SummerSlam.

“I think a guy, especially after I really started in the business was Arn Anderson” Samoa Joe said, during an interview with the Vulture Hound. “He had a real good technical acumen, great timing, incredibly explosive, and was able to kind of project an air about himself despite his stature. He seemed like he was ten feet tall.

“Bouncing back and forth, I caught a little bit of UWFI and I remember early Takada matches and seeing kind of the more shoot style of professional wrestling. It was a very mixed bag.”
