WWE SmackdownLow Attendance at SD! Tapings This Week

According to several liver reports, the WWE Smackdown taping held in Dayton, OH this week was very poorly attended. There were several areas of the arena tarped off and at one point WWE was offering a buy one get one free ticket promotion to help bring fans into the show.

Staff Changes to be Made in NXT

According to PWInsider.com, there will be a lot of staff changes being made down in NXT when the show move to the new Performance Center, which at this point is scheduled to open on 7/8. The internal feeling in NXT is that Steve Keirn will no longer be involved once NXT makes the move, and other staffers who technically worked for FCW will either be leaving the company altogether or shifted around to other parts of WWE or NXT.

All developmental talents have been told to report to the Orlando, FL area by the first week of July to be ready for the opening of the Performance Center.
