— Harry Smith teamed with William Regal at the 10/18 RAW/ECW show in Sheffield, England to take on the World Tag Team Champions Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch. Cade hit Regal with the belt to allow the Regal/Smith team to win by DQ. Following the match, Regal and Smith beat down Cade and Murdoch to a huge pop. Speaking of Smith, if you watch the video of him wrestling Carlito in England from the other day, Coachman and Michael Cole do voice overs where they keep mentioning that they’re “scouting” Harry Smith to bring him over to the RAW or SmackDown brand.
— Two different fan reports we received out of England from the SmackDown/ECW tapings on Tuesday tell of a confrontation between Batista and a fan at ringside. Apparently on Batista’s way to the back, he got into an argument with a fan and was clearly upset. WWE officials came out and tried to diffuse the situation. The fan turned his back on Batista and the World Heavyweight Champion leaned in towards the guy and said something to him and went on to celebrate with the rest of the fans at ringside. Thanks to Cary and Talum for help with that.
