WWE Announcer Changes, TLC Location and Tickets, SmackDown Notes
– The 2013 WWE TLC pay-per-view will take place on December 15th from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. A pre-sale is going on now.
– With this week’s SmackDown being taped on Wednesday instead of Tuesday, the editing didn’t get done in time for some international broadcasts and in Australia today, the show was a generic episode made up of old clips.
The following matches were taped for tonight’s show: Damien Sandow vs. Randy Orton, Mark Henry and The Usos vs. Darren Young, Titus O’Neil and Wade Barrett, Alberto Del Rio vs. Rob Van Dam, Erick Rowan and Luke Harper vs. Tensai and Brodus Clay, Jack Swagger vs. Christian plus Fandango vs. CM Punk.
– JBL and Josh Mathews did commentary for last night’s WWE Main Event tapings, to air on July 31st. Last night’s SmackDown tapings, airing on August 2nd, featured Alex Riley and Michael Cole on commentary.
