Detailed Off-Air Notes From SD/NXT Taping w/ Videos Included

Matt Boone

Bobby Rudasill sent along the following:

I went to WWE NXT/Superstars/Smackdown last night out here in Seattle, WA. There were a few hundred empty seats in the crowd. The Miz had his section of big Mizfits. Rey Mysterio was booed pretty bad. Chris Jericho was cheered pretty well.

Daniel Bryan got a huge ovation. Alot of "Welcome Home Dragon" signs were in the crowd. Tons of "Daniel Bryan" chants. During Smackdown he was supposed to play up to his character but while The Miz was wrestling everybody was chanting "Daniel Bryan" and he looked at the crowd and said "Thank you" and couldn’t quite smiling.

During the commercial the lights got lowered and about 15 crew members all ran out together and ran to the turnbuckle and stayed there for about 2 minutes. Then they left. Once back on TV it was DH Smith & Tyson Kidd vs Cryme Tyme and the lights go out and The Undertaker is in the ring. Whadda know. The old hide under the ring trick. The Undertaker was WAY over and by far the most over of the night.

Strangely enough, you know who was also way over?? Goldust. Who I might say has lost a TON of a weight and this is the best I’ve seen Goldust in years. The dude still has it, and is still way over.

Beth Pheonix had probably the second biggest cheer of the night when she attacked Vickie Guerrero.

Mike Knox and Drew Mcynter got absolutely NO reaction. No cheers, no boos, no nothing.
