The Wrestling Observer is reporting that as of Friday, Vince McMahon read through the script for tonight’s Judgment Day PPV and wouldn’t finalize some of the finishes. Many of the finishes aren’t expected to be fully decided until later today.

The Friday before Backlash, Vince McMahon made the call to strip the Undertaker of the World Heavyweight Championship at the next week’s SmackDown taping. The reason for the change is that it is believed that Edge works better as a champion than a challenger and Taker as a champion only works when he has a great challenger. Taker defending against Edge isn’t much of a PPV money match and Undertaker vs. Batista has been done time and time again. A while ago, there was talk of Big Daddy V entering a big title feud with Taker, but that appears to be off the cards.

Devin Cutting sent in the following… Marty Jannetty & Zach Gowen will be appearing at the Blue Water Championship Wrestling event in Alpena, Michigan on June 14th, 2008. Go to for info about BWCW & for info about upcoming shows.
