Friday To-Do: WWE Smackdown

The Great Khali! (and some other far, far less great dude)

WWE SMACKDOWN
7:30 p.m., Summit Arena, Hot Springs. $15-$50.

I'm confused. The championship bout on this live Smackdown card pits “The extreme high flying” Jeff Hardy vs. “The Rated R Superstar” Edge for the WWE Championship. But that's not supposed to happen until Royal Rumble, live on Pay-Per-View on Jan. 25. If Hardy's signature snap reverse powerbomb proves ineffective when faced with the Edge's Russian legsweeps, seated chinlocks and half nelson sitout facebusters, and the Edge reclaims the title belt from Hardy, will it only count in Hot Springs? That little asterisk that always accompanies these touring shows, “lineup subject to change,” should have you worried. Even more than Edge and Hardy, I'd be pretty devastated if The Great Khali, who's somewhere around 7 feet tall and 400 pounds heavy, and Big Show, who's similarly sized, didn't show and lumber around Hulk smashing each other around. The rest of the card supposedly includes the likes of Shelton Benjamin, Hurricane Helms, R-Truth, Vladmir Kozlov, Umaga,  MVP, Primo and Carlito, Ezekiel, Maria, Maryse and Jimmy Wang Yang.
