*WARNING* - This article contains mild spoilers for this week’s WWE SmackDown! scheduled for Friday, May 15, 2009. Do not read ahead if you do not want to read spoiler information.

Rey Mysterio suffered a knee injury during the match he taped for "WWE Superstars" with Shelton Benjamin prior to last night’s SmackDown! tapings. Apparently the injury isn’t serious enough to keep him out of the ring this Sunday at Judgment Day, but it was serious enough to cause a frenzy backstage at the tapings last night.

The storylines, segments and matches were changed on the fly for SmackDown! backstage at the tapings. Apparently the original idea was for a Rey Mysterio vs. Edge main event that would turn into a tag match with Mysterio & Jeff Hardy vs. Edge & Chris Jericho.
