[WWE News] HERALD EXCLUSIVE: SPOILERS for major Smackdown angle – A couple of weeks back on Smackdown Victoria Crawford, a former model, debuted as the wedding planner for Edge and Vickie Guerrero. I am told that the plan as of now is for Edge to get caught cheating on Vickie with Crawford. This will lead to their relationship ending and Vickie turning face. I was also told that this is the role that WWE wanted Krystal Marshall to play but she refused and was released. They didn’t have plans for her to be the wedding planner but as Edge’s secret lover. The twist with that angle though would have been it also tying into the Teddy Long/Krystal affair as well. Instead the wedding was broken up by Teddy having a heart attack. Krystal never came back on TV and was released just weeks later.. [reported by www.wrestlingherald.com]
[WWE News] HERALD EXCLUSIVE: More on major jump from Raw to Smackdown – Our own Chris Johnson reported a couuple of weeks back that HHH’s name was considered to switch to Smackdown. More recently John Cena‘s name has come up as well. HHH may or may not move but it’s looking likely that John Cena is jumping to Smackdown. I’ve been told that WWE has created a new World Heavyweight Championship. The kicker is this: the World Heavyweight championship is meant to be a spinner belt so it would indicate that John Cena is jumping to Smackdown. Vince McMahon has been wanting to switch things up because of the dip in the ratings so this would fall into the “big shake-up” category and would be an added boost for Smackdown when it moves to MyNetworkTV in the fall..
