Friday Night SmackDown will kick off with a bang at 8/7c this week on UPN.
General Manager Theodore Long’s office has just announced Kurt Angle will
have his SmackDown farewell match versus World Champion Rey Mysterio! Angle,
recently drafted by ECW, requested one more match on SmackDown as a thank you
to the great WWE fans who have supported him during his time on the show.
Mysterio and Angle have had many classic battles in the past, including at
WrestleMania 22. That night, in a Triple Threat Match which also included Randy
Orton, Rey Mysterio realized his lifelong dream of becoming World Champion.
WWE.com will have a comprehensive story on this development, including
interviews with Mysterio and Angle, later today.
