-- Due to the passing of his father, Daniel Bryan, who was advertised for the SmackDown TV tapings did not appear. John Cena was his replacement and was advertised locally for the show. However, Cena did not appear at the tapings either. As of this writing, there is no word on why he did not appear.
-- After SmackDown ended last night from Hershey, PA, The Shield and The Wyatt Family brawled in the dark match segment for the crowd. The Wyatts got the upper hand until The Shield fought back and sent them running to the back to end the tapings.
