COMINGS AND GOINGS?
John Cena is coming and JBL might be going.
Those were just two blockbuster stories that broke Thursday night on SmackDown! in Corpus Christi, Texas.
After a week of speculation, Eddie Guerrero found the fourth and final member for his Survivor Series team.
Latino Heat announced that former United States Champion John Cena, who has missed nearly a month while recovering from puncture wounds suffered at a Boston nightclub, will join Guerrero, Rob Van Dam and Big Show.
That unit will take on Kurt Angle, Luther Reigns, Mark Jindrak and Carlito Caribbean Cool in a classic elimination match this Sunday. And it might look something like the wild tag team match with Guerrero and RVD Thursday.
Cenaís return came as jolting news to Carlito, who defeated Cena for the United States Championship and has been linked by some to the incident that put Cena out of commission.
Angle, Reigns and Jindrak did their best to soften up Show before Sunday. Reigns and Jindrak locked in arm bars while Angle applied the ankle lock after the Olympic Hero was disqualified in his match with Show in the main event.
Meanwhile, WWE Champion JBL and Chief of Staff Orlando Jordan were foiled again by Booker T and Josh Mathews.
Mathews actually demanded a match with Jordan after Jordan slapped him backstage.
Amazingly, Mathews is now 2-for-2 on SmackDown! thanks to Booker, who took out Jordan with an Axe-Kick when the referee wasnít looking, leading to the pinfall for Josh.
Later, JBL told the SmackDown! audience that he would never return to the show if he happens to lose his championship to Booker T at Survivor Series. In fact, the champ guaranteed victory.
Nick Mitchell was the latest to be eliminated from the $1,000,000 Tough Enough. The remaining six competitors were allowed to take the Torrie Wilson Sex Test.
Unfortunately, it didnít have much to do with Torrie, who introduced the Superstar hopefuls to Mae Young and Fabulous Moolah. Young proceeded to make out with all six contestants, choosing Daniel Puder as her favorite boy toy.
Also, Heidenreich finally came face-to-face with Undertaker Thursday.
After weeks of taunting Taker, he appeared out of nowhere in the middle of the ring and stared a hole right through the unstable monster.
Paul Heyman pulled his client away from the combustible situation, only adding fuel to the fire for their match at Survivor Series.
