– The Taboo Tuesday PPV was said to have been booked 99% on-the-fly. None of the wrestlers were told ahead of time what the stipulations of their respective match was going to be though Eugene/Bischoff and Flair/Orton had a fairly good idea. Even the announcers and TV production workers had no idea what the poll results or finishes were going to be. Some people found the whole concept exciting but most agreed that it’s not something that they would like to participate in on a regular basis.
– Where the Intercontinental title match was concerned, not only did neither Chris Jericho or Shelton Benjamin know about their match, but they had no idea that the title was supposed to change hands until Vince McMahon relayed his directions to the referee at the beginning of the match.
– Bruce Prichard returned to RAW on October 25 but was not on the writing team. It is assumed that when Prichard left WWE for that short period of time, Paul Heyman was given his spot on Smackdown!.
