The arena was nowhere near full as the 3 bottom level areas past the hard camera were tarped off as well as 75% of the 2nd level and all of the 3rd level being completely tarped off. I’d say this is the worst turnout of a televised WWE event since the Smackdown that was the week after WrestleMania 30 when half the Superstars were headed on the European tour and WWE Champion Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella were married and not on the show

As for tonight’s events:

Dark Match: Kane def. John Skyler in 10 seconds.  Funny tidbit: The announcer stated he was from South Carolina, yet when Skyler did the promo, he stated he was from Louisville, KY.

Main Event:

Tyler Breeze w/Fandango def. Jey Uso.

Hype Bros def. The Ascension.


The referee threw up the “X” really quick when Bray rolled his ankle and you could see he was visibly mad about the incident. He did not want the medical personnel to help him and brushed past them, but was bothered by it through the match.

Also, there was a problem with one of the panels in the SmackDown Live! LED board, and it was still not fixed until 20 minutes into the actual broadcast.   Lastly, toward the end of the broadcast, the large LED panel beside the TitanTron also flickered in and out for about 2 minutes.

After the Taping:

Roman Reigns and John Cena def. Seth Rollins and AJ Styles when Reigns pinned Rollins after a spear.

WWE returns to Nashville on Wednesday, December 28th for a WWE Holiday Tour show. Presale Password is TICKETS.
