Thanks to reader Drew Acklin for calling in the following results:
WWE taped this week’s edition of Friday Night SmackDown from the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. They taped ECW on Sci-Fi earlier in the night. Below are pre-show notes and match results from this week’s tapings. I apologize for the lack of detail as we were not given a lot of information but at least we have results.
– They are having an ice storm in Cleveland right now, so it might be causing some transportation problems. Our correspondent arrived several minutes late.
– According to our correspondent, the arena is 70% full. Again, attendance could be effected by the severe weather.
