Two new champions will celebrate their WrestleMania triumphs when Friday Night SmackDown invades Peoria, Ill., this week.

At WrestleMania 22, Rey Mysterio lived his dream, winning a Triple Threat Match to claim the World Heavyweight Championship. In an emotional moment, Rey celebrated with Chavo & Vickie Guerrero after the match, dedicating the win to the late Eddie Guerrero. What will be in store for the new champion this week?

Plus, JBL dethroned Chris Benoit at WrestleMania 22 to become the new United States Champion. While Benoit had JBL locked in the Crippler Crossface, the Wrestling God rolled over and used the ropes to get the pin. Will the Rabid Wolverine come after JBL for revenge this week?

Also, Undertaker’s perfect WrestleMania record stayed intact as he defeated Mark Henry in a Casket Match. What’s next on the agenda for the Deadman?

Tune into UPN this Friday night at 8/7 CT to find out all this and more.
