A new report from Fightful Select has some details about the producers for this week’s episode of SmackDown. They also shared some notes from backstage. You can check out a list of producers below:
- Drew & Sheamus vs. The Viking Raiders: Michael Hayes
- LA Knight segment: Adam Pearce
- Los Lotharios vs. Hit Row: Shawn Daivari
- Charlotte Flair segment: Molly Holly
- The Brawling Brutes vs. Imperium: Petey Williams
- Maximum Male Models vs. Legado Del Fantasma: Jamie Noble
- Contract signing segment: Jason Jordan
The post-show dark match featuring The Street Profits vs. The Usos was produced by Jason Jordan. Molly Holly produced the pre-show dark match featuring Liv Morgan vs. Xia Li.
There were no talent or staff meetings prior to this week’s show. Pre-show meetings were held last week ahead of both RAW and SmackDown to address the Saudi sale rumors, and Vince McMahon’s potential return to WWE Creative.
The internal WWE office cuts were a big topic of conversation backstage. Many were very surprised that longtime PR employee Adam Hopkins was let go.
