It was a busy night. WWE has a lot of programming to offer every single week and it can be quite a bit. Sometimes it is hard to remember everything that is going on, which is not often the best way to go. There is not much of another way around it though, as there are so many wrestlers that sometimes WWE needs to use that much time. This week, they needed even more time than usual.
According to Wrestling Inc., there were three non-televised dark matches during this week’s WWE SmackDown taping. Prior to the show, there were two NXT matches, as Johnny Gargano defeated Kyle O’Reilly and Amari Miller defeated Dakota Kai. After the show went off the air, Drew McIntyre and the Viking Raiders defeated the Bloodline. Of the six SmackDown wrestlers, only Jey Uso and Roman Reigns of the Bloodline did not wrestle twice on the night.

There is some talent in there. Check out some of the wrestlers in action:
Opinion: Matches like these can often be somewhat interesting as you never know who you might see pop up. It’s cool for the fans to get a special treat like this and it sounds like they got a nice mixture this week. I’m not sure I can imagine those four being called up to NXT at the moment, though Miller does seem to be the kind of wrestler that WWE would love to bring up full time.
