Update on Last Night’s Smackdown Edits in The UK

Nick Paglino

Thanks to David Dunne for sending in this update:

Hey, just reading through one of the wrestlezone articles and noticed
there was one mistake and one thing which I thought should be
elaborated on with regards to the heavy editing of SD on Sky Sports last
night.

The Punk segment was cut short since it involved product placement,
which isn’t allowed on TV over here. Thus, when Punk was discussing the
Hardy DVD, they had to edit it out.

Also, the show didn’t air for an hour and a half like Oli Raabe
mentioned. It was two hours, but for some reason, the IC title match
was shown after the Taker/Jericho match. So after Batista beat down
Taker, it wrapped up but then after the commercials, we came back to
the IC title match. To make matters worse, after that match, we were
treated to a hype for the real main event as well as a clip of Batista
making his way down to the ring to do comenty on the match we had
already seen.

Really poor editing on Sky’s part last night. Not impressive.
