A commercial promoting Cyber Sunday aired in the Washington D.C. area during SmackDown last night. Washington D.C. is the site of Cyber Sunday as the event will take place at the Verizon Center on October 28. A Cyber Sunday commercial that aired in Canada originally advertised “Rowdy” Roddy Piper as being one of the choices for the referee of the World Heavyweight Championship match along with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Mick Foley. The commercial now advertises JBL as one of the referee choices for the match, thus replacing Piper. The commercial also promoted the WWE Championship match. The stipulation options for the match are Hell in a Cell, Falls Count Anywhere, and No Disqualification.
