Update on JBL at SmackDown, People Questioning Fan Incident, More
– Davey Boy Smith Jr. (David Hart Smith) and Lance Archer won the IWGP Tag Team Titles from Hiroyoshi Tenzan and Satoshi Kojima in Tokyo, Japan on October 8th as New Japan Pro Wrestling held their first-ever internet pay-per-view. The rematch will take place on November 11th in Osaka.
– The reported reason JBL is working SmackDown this week in place of Michael Cole is because Cole is now doing Main Event on Wednesday nights. No word yet if they will keep the same announce teams next week.
– We noted before that when the CM Punk fan incident first happened at RAW, people in the company expected consequences. Now a lot of people are questioning why no disciplinary action has been taken, noting that in the past wrestlers have gotten in a lot of trouble for hitting fans. It’s unlikely that anything will happen to Punk right now because WWE can’t afford to have him off the road.
