Smackdown Preview 01.16.09
Triple H also had a rough time of it last week as he was forced to compete in three matches during one night. Smackdown General Manager Vickie Guerrero became infuriated after HHH continually insulted her weight, then revealed that there were nude pictures of Vickie selling on eBay. The GM ordered Triple H to compete in a "Triple Jeopardy" situation last week, which had The Game fighting in a Tables Match against John Morrison, a Handicap Match against The Miz & Chavo Guerrero, and finally a Last Man Standing Match versus the Big Show. HHH was able to survive matches 1 and 2, but by the Last Man Standing Match he seemed to be on his last leg. Big Show was able to Chokeslam Triple H and then deliver a KO punch leaving The Game down for the count. Despite the loss, Triple H still has a spot in the Royal Rumble. The Big Show will also be a part of the 30 man match. Will these two superstars collide yet again before the big event?
The WWE Divas division also continues to heat up on Smackdown. Right now the WWE Divas Championships rests securely around the waist of Maryse. Despite an injury at a WWE house show shortly after winning the title, Maryse did not have to vacate her title. Meanwhile, divas Michelle McCool and Maria continue to have their differences, and the Bella Twins continue their winning ways. The biggest story of them all will be WWE Diva Victoria, who will battle Michelle McCool tonight. Victoria has informed the WWE Universe that this will in fact be her final wrestling match. The longtime diva plans to retire following the match, putting the cap on one of the all-time great WWE diva careers. Will Victoria be victorious in her final contest, or will Michelle spoil her retirement party?
Several superstars on Smackdown will also continue to prepare themselves for the 2009 Royal Rumble. Catch all the action of Smackdown Friday night at 8PM EST on MyNetworkTV!
