- John Cena has been added to Tuesday night’s WWE SmackDown television taping in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The arena’s website is advertising John Cena vs. Big Show in a bonus match which will be the dark match main event.
Cena has also been added to other SmackDown tapings in order to increase ticket sales for the show. As previously mentioned, Triple H and Arn Anderson are advertised for next week’s SmackDown television taping in South Carolina. Cena and Triple H are both being advertised for the final SmackDown prior to No Way Out in two weeks. John Cena is also being advertised for June 26 SmackDown television taping. The following week leads to the July 3 live Super SmackDown event, which Cena is also advertised for.
– Television ratings for this week’s WWE RAW and last Friday’s SmackDown will be delayed due to the Memorial Day holiday. The final WWE RAW rating for this week is scheduled to be released on Wednesday, while last week’s final SmackDown rating is expected to be released Tuesday.
