Talking Smack, WWE’s weekly post-SmackDown show, received a change this week. The company welcomed back fans and that means they needed to switch up the shooting arrangement.

Matt Camp and Kevin Patrick were hosts of the show in-studio. Kayla Braxton, the former co-host of the show, did interviews with Superstars from the Toyota Center in Houston.

This is quite a change, because Kayla Braxton and Paul Heyman hosted the show from the ThunderDome every week during the pandemic programming. Then Heyman was switched out for a very brief time by Pat McAfee. This week was a much different set-up as they had to figure out a way to make things work with the return of live fans.

“I made my #TalkingSmack debut alongside @kev_egan with @KaylaBraxtonWWE handling interviews at the Toyota Center,” Matt Camp tweeted out as he continued, “As you can see, I was thoroughly amazed by the @WWE Global HQ. The show is available now on @peacockTV in the U.S. and @WWENetwork everywhere else.”


Talking Smack uploads on Saturdays after SmackDown. It would be a live show, but the West Coast affiliates don’t air SmackDown on FOX until 8:00 PM their time. Talking Smack is on Saturdays to avoid spoilers.
