PWInsider reports that the SmackDown invasion that took place on this week’s episode of RAW was actually taped earlier in the day on Monday.

WWE officials instructed talents to make the attack look as brutal as possible to make the segment look more realistic. WWE ended up having to re-tape one of the shots because one of the WWE Superstars threw a “working punch” that wasn’t good enough for television.

As previously reported, there will be two 5-on-5 traditional elimination RAW vs. SmackDown matches, one for the males and one for the females. Each brand’s champion will be face the opposing brand’s champion. The titles are no on the line.
