Major Backstage News From Tonight’s SmackDown! Tapings In Philly

Ryan Clark

Frankie Kazarian is in Philadelphia, PA and will be at tonight’s SmackDown! tapings. We’re told Kazarian was booked for both nights of TV this week but flight issues prevented him from arriving in time for Raw in State College, PA. We don’t believe he’ll be on TV, but rather in a dark match so management can take a look at him. He’s definitely in Philly right now.

Former WCW Hardcore champion Big Vito had a dark match last night in State College, PA, defeating Kevin Matthews.

Team Blondage, Amber O’Neale and Kristy Vaine will be looked at tonight in a dark match by WWE management.

We’re told to look for Ring of Honor champion Austin Aries at tonight’s SmackDown! tapings as well. He is scheduled to be there and will be looked at by management. He may actually be booked on camera in a security type role.
