– Adam Rose defeated Damien Sandow in the dark match prior to the WWE Main Event and SmackDown TV tapings on Tuesday night in Orlando, FL. Sandow impersonated Rose and it was actually funny according to a fan in attendance. The live crowd played along. Former TNA Knockout SoCal Val was one of the rosebuds.
– Current WWE NXT Champion Adrian Neville defeated Tyler Breeze with his Red Arrow finisher in another dark match prior to the WWE Main Event and SmackDown tapings in Orlando, FL. Due to the show taking place in Orlando (the home of NXT), there were dueling chants for both men.
– It was announced on RAW that Rusev would face WWE U.S Champion Sheamus on this week’s WWE Main Event broadcast. That was was changed as they went with a Rusev vs. Jack Swagger rematch from Battleground instead. Ahh, more creative re-writes!
