WWE Smackdown: 6.20.08

  • Personal note: I have realized the one shitty thing about being a parent, and that is 90% of the time you will get whatever illness the child is suffering from. I feel horrible right now, but no one else is available to do this so I will do my best. Thanks for understanding.

    MVP is here to talk about the draft. Everyone is eligible to be drafted; anything and everything can happen. As he thinks about this, he is cool going to whatever show will use him properly because he is the most talented athlete. A change may do him good, because he doesn’t feel like his talents are being properly utilized by the management of this show. It could be because they don’t know what they are doing, or are distracted because they are getting married. Maybe he would be the one to outshine LA FAMILIA if given the right chance.

    Vickie is out and is not happy. She is offended that he would run down her family and also upset that his is campaigning to go to another show. MVP apologizes, and reminds her that he took care of CM Punk last week like she asked. Vickie says sure he won, but barely. His agent was supposed to call her, but when he called she wasn’t available to take his call. He doesn’t want to leave Smackdown, he is the face of the brand, but she makes him feel like he isn’t wanted, and if that is the case, he doesn’t want to stay. Vickie doesn’t have the time to deal with him in public like this, and he may not feel challenged but she will change that. Tonight she orders him to battle the ECW Champion Kane.

    -Matt Hardy walks.

    -Vickie and the wedding planner (who Edge will end up nailing) talk as Edge comes in. Edge tells Vickie about Charles Robinson, and he then enters the room.
