WWE 2008 No Mercy Preview: Rey Mysterio versus Kane

reykane.jpegRey Mysterio has seemingly fallen down Kane’s dark demented version of the rabbit hole, and at No Mercy, these two will face-off in a David vs. Goliath match-up that will certainly have neither competitor showing the other any mercy.

When Kane revealed that the mysterious burlap sack he was carrying around contained the mask of the Master of the 619, the WWE Universe was questioning what the sadistic Big Red Monster could have done to Mysterio. Kane revealed that he had attacked the Ultimate Underdog and left him broken, his reason being an unwarranted hatred for Mysterio and the fact that he still “hides behind a mask.” (WATCH)

Fortunately, despite Kane’s cryptic messages and alluding that he had done away with the Ultimate Underdog, Mysterio made a surprise return, dispatching of the surprised Big Red Monster much to the delight of our fans. The Master of the 619 went on to explain that Kane did indeed attack him, but Mysterio would not be broken and all it did was make his spirit that much stronger. (SmackDown’s 1-2 Punch)

The two had their chance to face-off against one another a few weeks later on Raw, but it ended in a disqualification when Kane snapped and continued to mercilessly attack a helpless Mysterio. Luckily for Rey, he had a friend in ECW’s Evan Bourne, who came out to make the save for the man he said opened the doors for guys like him in WWE. (WATCH)

One week later, however, it was Kane who got the last laugh, decimating Bourne and sending a powerful message to Mysterio. Will Rey be able overcome tremendous odds and rid himself of the torment he has been facing at the hands of Kane? Or will the Big Red Monster finally finish off the Master of the 619 as he intended to do weeks ago?

TNA Senior Referee Rudy Charles wants you to take ‘The Walk’

rudycharles.jpegWill you take The Walk?
Current mood: anxious

Rudy Charles will be taking The Walk in Nashville, TN.

Take The Walk is about giving you simple tangible ways to take action against the HIV/AIDS pandemic and poverty in Africa. A small donation, the purchase of a pair of shoes, the download of a song or simply taking a one-mile walk.

The initial launch of the Take The Walk campaign began with one mile barefoot walks staged across the US and Canada to help inspire individuals to make an impact through simple actions. Thousands of individuals participated in these walks, lead by the band HANSON in partnership with TOMS Shoes, providing thousands of shoes to impoverished children in South Africa.

Now, through TakeTheWalk.net, you can join a walk on HANSON’s The Walk Around The World Tour, a walk hosted by another individual or host a walk in your town. Every mile walked will raise funds to support one of five real causes that will make a difference, with one dollar donated by the Take The Walk campaign for each walker. You can support: access to medical care, medical treatment, shoes, clean water and education.

Whether you choose to walk a mile or directly donate to one of these five causes, you will be making a real impact, just by taking a simple action.

Together we can realize our potential to impact the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves, creating partnership for the future and facing today’s greatest challenges, one action at a time. The real difference happens when you begin, when you decide to move from awareness to action.

Take The Walk.

Official Smackdown 09.26.08 Results

smackdown.jpegKEEPING YOUR ENEMIES CLOSE

COLUMBUS, Ohio – To kick off SmackDown, fans at Ohio State University were treated to a blockbuster match-up that had all the makings for a main event that might normally cap off a night of action.

In an unlikely pairing, WWE Champion Triple H joined forces with his No Mercy opponent, Jeff Hardy, to take on Montel Vontavious Porter and The Brian Kendrick. Putting their differences aside, The Game and the Legend Thriller were able to earn a victory when The King of Kings nailed MVP with a Pedigree for the pinfall.

After the win, Hardy and Triple H shook hands. But at No Mercy, animosity will reign as championship gold is on the line. No Mercy preview …

Kozlov still undefeated
Vladimir Kozlov had never encountered anyone like the 7-foot-3, 420-pound The Great Khali. In a clash of styles, the two beasts locked horns. But before a winner could be decided, Triple H rushed into the arena looking for some payback against the Moscow Mauler. Mayhem quickly ensued, as Khali and Kozlov attacked The Game. But No. 1 contender Hardy didn’t like what he saw and came to help even the odds.

Death in the air
Fearful of what Undertaker might do to him again, Chavo Guerrero nervously entered into his match against Jimmy Wang Yang. Using a rolling wheel kick, Guerrero took down Yang to get the pinfall. But after the match, the house lights went out momentarily, sending Chavo into a panic. It was an ominous sign of things to come later in the night when Undertaker choked Chavo in GM Vickie Guerrero’s office, then suddenly appeared in the ring to decimate the GM with a hard-hitting Tombstone. The deadly maneuver left Guerrero on her back, with The Phenom hovering over her motionless body.

New WWE Tag Team Champions
The Family suffered another hit on the night, when Curt Hawkins & Zack Ryder lost their WWE Tag Team Championship to the brothers from San Juan, Carlito & Primo.

Deadly duo
In what could possibly be the sexiest tag team in WWE, newcomer Brie Bella paired up with Maria to take on Victoria and Natalya. But Victoria quickly showed who was boss when she tossed the undefeated Bella from the top rope to the arena floor. The stunned brunette crawled under the ring, but emerged from under the apron with new vigor and attacked Victoria. Next, Bella tagged in Maria, who flung herself from the top rope and used a cross body to drive Victoria to the canvas and get the pinfall.

WWE’s 1-2 Punch
In the last SmackDown before moving to MyNetwork TV on Oct. 3, Jesse & Festus brought their MyMoving Co. van into the arena to pick up a few items from under the ring. While packing their van, we got a glimpse of a bound-and-gagged Ryan Braddock and Kenny Dykstra in the back of the van. What other surprises are in store when SmackDown makes the move to MyNetwork TV?

Don’t miss WrestleMania’s World Television Premiere (Oct. 2) and SmackDown’s All Star Kick-Off (Oct. 3) on MyNetwork TV. More on WWE’s 1-2 Punch …
