The Guerrero factor
June 20, 2008
Tonight on SmackDown, anything is bound to happen just three days before the 2008 WWE Draft takes place. Will General Manager Vickie Guerrero use her power to throw more obstacles at Batista as he prepares to challenge Vickie’s fiancé, World Heavyweight Champion Edge, at Night of Champions? Will the GM continue to look for the Diva she sees fit to challenge Natalya for the newly-created Divas Championship?
After signing the official contract for the World Heavyweight Championship Match against Edge, Batista was told by General Manager Vickie Guerrero to qualify he would have to defeat The Great Khali – or he would be banished from WWE.
The Animal found a way to take down the Punjabi Giant, and the stage is now set for his clash with the Rated-R Superstar at Night of Champions, much to the disgust of the GM & her lover, Edge. Will Batista strike back at “The Family” to make a statement of his own heading into Night of Champions on June 29? Will Guerrero & Edge place another roadblock in The Animal’s way to slow his momentum and keep the gold safe?
Guerrero also has begun scouting the Divas to see who she deems fit to face Natalya for the newly-created Divas Championship. Cherry was the latest of the Sexiest Women on Television to try to impress the General Manager, defeating Maryse on SmackDown.
Who else will try to state their case to Guerrero in hopes of becoming the first-ever Divas Champion?
One person looking to become a champion and using his Guerrero influence to earn a straight track to gold is Chavo Guerrero. On SmackDown, Chavo let it be known that at Night of Champions he will challenge United States Champion Matt Hardy for the title. Will Chavo’s bloodline help his case for gold? Or will Matt Hardy continue to roll as the U.S. Champion?
