Power 25 du 28 Juin 2008
|This Week||Superstar||Last Week|
After the shake up with the 2008 Draft, Edge still remains No. 1 after first winning two draft picks for SmackDown in a Battle Royal on Raw and then defeating Matt Hardy on SmackDown.
TRIPLE H (5)
The Game was just as surprised as anyone to see himself heading to Friday nights. With his change of location, he also brought the title with him.
Some would argue that The Animal's move to Raw may have been the biggest addition to Monday nights. This will certainly be true if he brings the World Heavyweight Championship to Raw after Sunday.
The ECW Champion got two big pieces of news this week. First, he switched brands and is now a Raw Superstar. Second, he'll be facing Big Show at Night of Champions... and also Mark Henry.
At One Night Stand, Big Show defeated four other former ECW Champions to earn an opportunity at Kane's title. It can not make Big Show happy that with the title match just days away, Mark Henry joins the fray.
The Hardy Boys reunion didn't last long on Monday. Shortly after his brother Jeff was drafted to SmackDown, Matt was sent packing to the Land of the Extreme, bringing the United States Championship with him.
Mr. Money in the Bank is now on Monday nights. His unique style will surely make him a top contender, and with the interesting title situation following the Draft, could we see him use the briefcase this Sunday?
With WWE Champion Triple H now a SmackDown Superstar, the Chain Gang Commander's match on Sunday is even more important as he could bring the WWE Championship back to Raw.
As of now, Y2J is the only champion not scheduled to defend his title at Night of Champions. His mind, however, has been set on teaching Shawn Michaels a lesson as of late.
Jericho may have forgotten about the Intercontinental Championship, but Shawn Michaels certainly hasn't forgotten about Y2J. His injured eye is a constant reminder.
If the 2008 Draft pleased anyone, it would have been the monster from Moscow. Now with all the fresh blood on Friday nights, Kozlov will almost certainly be looking forward to the varied competition.
Though Kofi couldn't secure a draft pick for ECW in his match against JBL, he was able to get the last laugh over Shelton Benjamin on ECW. The Jamaican Superstar can relax now that they are both on separate brands.
Due to his issues with SmackDown GM Vickie Guerrero as of late, MVP might have been hoping for a new home with the Draft. We guess the Ballin' Superstar will have to figure out how to deal with Vickie instead.
The self-proclaimed "Mexican Warrior" & Bam Neely couldn't pick up the win over World Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes & Hardcore Holly on Raw, but that may be because Chavo has other gold on his mind.
Though Finlay's tenure has been spent on SmackDown, his switch to ECW is seemingly a perfect fit for the Belfast brawler.
The Legend Thriller has been on a tear since returning a few weeks ago. With him now bringing his high-risk style to Friday nights, it will be interesting to see the impact he makes on the blue brand.
Being drafted to SmackDown might have been the best thing that could have happened to the Green Bay Loudmouth. Now with the Burchills out of his hair, he can focus on securing some gold.
Now that Hornswoggle is going Extreme, it will be interesting to see how he and Finlay fair in their match against WWE Tag Team Champions The Miz & John Morrison at Night of Champions this Sunday.
So far, the Women's Champion has not had good luck against Katie Lea Burchill. With the gold hanging in the balance, will she be able to fend off her adversary for the first time and retain her championship?
Natalya has been one of the most dominant Divas on SmackDown and continues to show it each and every week. She will surely give it her all once she finds out who she'll face for the Divas Championship.
Tommy Dreamer and Colin Delaney could tell anyone on the SmackDown roster that they are in for a rude awakening. With the Samoan Bulldozer heading to Friday nights, carnage is certain to follow.
The ECW Championship Match at Night of Champions was originally supposed to be between ECW Champion Kane and Big Show, but after beating Kane Tuesday, Mark Henry has been added to the mix.
Though Katie Lea wasn't in action this week, she might have the biggest match of her young career Sunday. The English lass has a chance to win the Women's gold at Night of Champions.
