It was announced on Raw tonight that a champion vs. champion match would be taking place on the debut of SmackDown on myNetworkTV on Friday, October 3. The main event will feature WWE World Heavyweight Champion Chris Jericho vs. ECW World Heavyweight Champion Matt Hardy vs. WWE Champion Triple H in a three-way bout. WWE is billing the show as an "All Star Kick-off."
That's a huge match! And if they're going to make this big of a deal for this show I figured it deserved its own discussion thread already. You know it'll probably end with interference or some sort of screwjob but it doesn't matter. Matt gets some main event time and that's hopefully just going to be a good match before a shit ending.
Dale told me they're going to be doing the same with Beth and Michelle, and I'm guessing we might see a few more interpromotional matches.
It's really nice to see WWE making a big deal out of this, kind of like the Homecoming for RAW on the USA network a few years ago.
Really excited for this show, and hopefully it will built well into a good looking card at No Mercy.
Does anyone know if it's live?
