WWE Edits Bloodbath Off SmackDown, FCW Champion Appears



– Florida Heavyweight Champion Leo Kruger was among the wrestlers gathered around the ring during John Laurinaitis’ address at the beginning of SmackDown. He worked a dark match prior to the taping, losing to Trent Barreta.

NXT talent also appeared ringside: Darren Young, Derrick Bateman, Maxine and Titus O’Neil.

– Randy Orton caused Cody Rhodes to heavily bleed on SmackDown following an errant shot to the head with the ring bell. Cameras quickly cut to close-up shots of Orton’s face, with Rhodes’ back only being visible for the remainder of the segment. Personnel covered Rhodes’ head with a towel before Orton struck him with an RKO on the broadcast table.

The replay, however, showed blood streaming from the back of Rhodes’ head.

According to fans in attendance at Tuesday’s taping, pools of bloods were scattered around the ring following the segment.
