are no classic wrestling shows scheduled for ESPN Classic tonight.
-- As noted late night here on the website, the WWE SmackDown tapings on Tuesday night in Dayton, OH had a terrible live gate. There were several areas of the arena tarped off and the company was offering a buy one get one free ticket promotion to help bring fans into the show. They will do a great job with post-show editing to make the arena look full when the show airs tomorrow night but it was downright bad. As noted, there were people questioning why WWE chose to hold a TV taping in the city when RAW drew a bad live gate when they were there several months ago. We don't have an attendance figure just yet but it appeared to be less than 3500 people.
-- Mark Henry tweeted the following to John Cena last night:
John Cena I'd like to say I'm sorry but I'm not. Now all you fans know how manti te'o felt! WOW! That was low even for me. Still laughing!
