Smackdown Preview 09.18.09
At Breaking Point this past Sunday, the World Heavyweight Title was decided in a Submissions match between Undertaker and CM Punk. However, Smackdown General Manager Teddy Long might have some explaining to do regarding the outcome of the match. Undertaker had the Hells Gate submission locked onto Punk, causing the champ to immediately tap out. The ref tried to award Taker the title, but soon Teddy Long changed all that when he reminded everyone the Hells Gate submission had been outlawed by previous GM, Vickie Guerrero. The match was restarted, and in the second contest, CM Punk quickly locked his Anaconda Vice hold on Taker. While Taker never officially tapped, the ref ruled in favor of Punk, awarding him the win. Punk retained his title, and Undertaker was none too happy. What will Teddy Long have to say regarding the outcome of the match, and how will Undertaker react? What's next for CM Punk?
In other action, the Unified Tag Champions Chris Jericho and Big Show are still on a roll. The champs managed to pull off another victory, this time against the recently formed tag team of Mark Henry and MVP. In the match, Mark Henry seemed to have control of things against Jericho. However, it was Big Show who scored a knockout punch from ringside, sending Henry to the mat for Jericho to pin. On the recent episode of Raw, the team of Mark Henry, MVP and Trish Stratus were able to defeat Jericho, Big Show and Beth Phoenix. With their recent victory over Henry and MVP, will Jericho and Show move on to new opponents, or will Raw's latest tag team look for a rematch opportunity?
Catch all the action and excitement of Smackdown Friday night at 8PM EST on MyNetworkTV!
