Last night’s episode of SmackDown was a weird one as it emanated from WWE’s Performance Center training facility, in front of no audience or crowd presence.
What you might not have seen, though, was what happened during the commercial breaks. With no live crowd to keep entertained during this period, the performers took the opportunity to have a little breather.
Just to mention, this isn’t meant to expose anyone or anything of that nature, it’s just quite interesting, and frankly a valuable use of the performers’ time, to be honest. There would be no point continuing the match through commercials if there’s no-one watching.
Check out the video here from the opening match which saw Bayley and Sasha Banks team up against Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross:

This coming Monday’s Raw will also emanate from the Performance Center as the coronavirus situation continues to prevent normal human activity from occurring.
