Heading into Friday’s episode of WWE SmackDown there wasn’t much announced in advance for it and there’s a good reason as to why.
It wasn’t until about an hour before the show went live on FOX from Orlando, Florida at the Amway Center that WWE started to announce matches.
Bryan Alvarez noted on Twitter shortly after the matches had been announced that the script for the show was finished. That’s the reason for nothing being advertised all week or even the morning of the show.
It was reported last week that WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon didn’t have last week’s show written until the afternoon of it. The reason for that was due to extra time being put into the Otis court segments.
This was before Otis lost the Money in the Bank contract to The Miz at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event.
