WWE entered into their season premiere with high expectations. Some of the production quality was not up to Vince McMahon’s standards, and there were other issues.

Click here for our complete coverage of WWE Friday Night SmackDown from this week.

Ringside News has learned that there were “lots of missed camera shots and bad camera angles,” and “Vince and Kevin Dunn were unhappy” with some of the early portion of the show.

It was described as a bit of chaos in the Gorilla Position as the first hour of the show ran long. “This threw off the entire show,” we were told.

We also exclusively reported that Becky Lynch was backstage during SmackDown this week. She was happy to be back with the people she worked with for years. That had nothing to do with the production issues.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
