According to Fightful Select, WWE taped two episodes of SmackDown after this past Friday’s SmackDown in order to make up for the April 29th episode of the blue brand. They kept a lot of the same producers working with the same people to make things easier.

WWE filmed two episodes of Smackdown, with similar teams of people working with one another, from workers to producers. Most of the producers for this week’s Smackdown were tasked with that particular talent’s segments for next week.

One of the tapings ended with Drew McIntyre confronting Roman Reigns inside the ring. McIntyre is slated to take on Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in the main event of WrestleMania Backlash next month. That match hasn’t been officially announced yet though.
