Fightful Select has put together a list of the producers for Friday night’s episode of SmackDown.
As we previously reported here on eWn, WWE was greatly concerned about Friday night’s show due Hurricane Ian preventing several WWE Superstars from being at the TV tapings.
Reportedly, WWE producers took on a heavier workload than normal and WWE chartered a flight from Florida to get some of the Superstars to the show.
- Michael Hayes produced Ricochet & Madcap Moss vs. Sami Zayn & Solo Sikoa, as well as the Imperium & Sheamus promo.
- Jason Jordan produced Drew McIntyre vs. Austin Theory, as well as McIntyre, Kevin Owens & Johnny Gargano vs. Theory & Alpha Academy. Gargano, Owens, Alpha Academy & Theory were all listed internally and not kept a secret.
- Kenny Dykstra produced Hit Row vs. Los Lotharios.
- TJ Wilson produced Natalya vs. Ronda Rousey and Bayley vs. Shotzi.
- Imperium were scheduled for a pre-show dark match against several local wrestlers, which was produced by Kenny Dykstra.
- WWE chartered a flight from Florida to bring in talent for Smackdown that were in the path of Hurricane Ian.
- The post show dark match was Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Gunther, which was produced by Jason Jordan. Gunther is stylized as GUNTHER internally.
- There were only four producers and they all worked double duty.
