– After learning there would be no trip to Iraq this year, there was big relief among the wrestlers at last night’s SmackDown taping. The superstars are fine with the actual work required, however it is the constant flying on the cargo plane which proves a struggle. There has been talks of a domestic Tribute to the Troops show, which WWE and USO are in discussions about.
– WWE are planning to add a bit more of an ‘entertainment’ aspect to SmackDown after it’s move to Syfy. The company feel this will help the show get back to the “same level” as RAW.
– Kofi Kingston defeated Tyler Reks in the dark match before SmackDown last night.
