WWE taped this Friday’s episode of WWE SmackDown on Tuesday night from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Credit to reader Tommy Paslaski and Prowrestling.net for this report:
Miz TV opened the show with John Cena was the guest. Miz asked him about his knee and what’s going on with AJ. AJ came out and then Dolph Ziggler interrupted. They played everything on the Titan Tron that happened on Raw. Vickie Guerrero came out to a ton of boos. Nothing really happened. They bickered back and forth before Cena got the last word.
