Paige Explains Why She Wasn’t On SmackDown
Paige was initially set to appear on tonight’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown, but thanks to general travel worries, she was unable to make it. Taking to Twitter to explain the scenario, Paige apologized for not being able to attend, but did take a not so subtle shot at Bayley in the process.
According to sources, Paige did not travel to Florida for #SmackDown due to coronavirus related travel concerns which the company accommodated.

Watch WWE Wrestlers Stop For Commercial Breaks
Because tonight’s SmackDown is happening in an empty arena, some changes to the show have occurred. One of the funnier ones is that during commercial breaks, instead of continuing to wrestle, the superstars just take a breather. Sean Ross of Fightful.com snapped the below video of the Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross vs. Sasha Banks & Bayley match, where all four superstars stop wrestling once the television commercial break begins.
They really did stop wrestling during the commercials! pic.twitter.com/Pi6zBkz3qI
