World Champion Rey Mysterio, Batista & U.S. Champion Bobby Lashley def. King Booker, Mark Henry & Finlay

SmackDown took center stage tonight at Saturday Night's Main Event with a mammoth six-man Tag Team attraction. There were a number of issues at hand coming into this contest, among those being how SmackDown's former World Heavyweight Champion, Batista, would respond to his first in-ring action since being injured at the hands of Mark Henry more than seven months ago. After Saturday Night's Main Event, any of those who questioned Batista coming in got their answer loud and clear: SmackDown's Animal is back.

The contest, which pitted World Champion Rey Mysterio, Batista and powerhouse Bobby Lashley against the team of King Booker, United States Champion Finlay and Mark Henry was not without controversy. At one point, Little Bastard injected himself into the match and assaulted World Champion Rey Mysterio with the shillelagh. With Mysterio down, King Booker, who will challenge Rey for the gold at The Great American Bash, went to work.

While King Booker and his Court were able to temporarily slow the World Champion and his teammates, there was nothing they could do to stop The Animal at Saturday Night's Main Event.

Rey was able to once again show the resiliency that has defined his reign as Champion, making the tag to Batista and unleashing the Animal on King Booker and his team. With Finlay distracted by Lashley, Batista delivered a thunderous spinebuster on King Booker, which set up a 619 from Mysterio, which led to the final blow, a Batista Bomb from the returning Animal. With Booker lying on his royal keister, Batista made the cover, recording the pinfall on not just a King, but the No 1. Contender to the World Championship at The Great American Bash. The message to both the fans and the WWE roster was loud and clear: The Animal is back.
