Off-Air WWE Smackdown Taping Notes; Top NXT Talents Work Dark Match

WWE NXT​NXT Talents Work Smackdown Dark Match

Before tonight's WWE Main Event and Smackdown taping, Adrian Neville defeated Sami Zayn in the show's dark match. Neville and Zayn are two of NXT's top stars, and have experience working together on the US independent circuit, including what is widely considered one of the best PWG matches of all time: PAC vs. El Generico.

After the cameras stopped rolling for Smackdown, Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton worked a quick dark match for the WWE Championship, which Bryan won via disqualification following some interference by The Shield.
