WWE usually puts on a dark match in order to reward fans for sticking around an entire television show taping. This week was no different on SmackDown Live, but those lucky San Antonio fans got two matches.
The top female on SmackDown Live, Bayley got a chance to perform once again as she faced Charlotte Flair. Reports from fans in attendance say that Flair nailed Bayley with a spear, but she wasn’t able to close the deal. Then Bayley won clean after a Bayley To Belly.
Kofi Kingston might have his sights and middle finger set at Samoa Joe, but he had another opponent after SmackDown Live. Because Kofi Kingston faced Dolph Ziggler after the cameras stopped rolling. They had a much longer match until The Show Off lost control and caused a DQ on himself before going all-out with a kendo stick on Kofi Kingston to really close out the show.
It’s a good idea that WWE does these dark matches as it provides fans with additional incentive to purchase tickets to a live event, but this week San Antonio fans got twice the dark matches.
