The September 2nd edition of SmackDown has been pre-taped, with the tapings taking place after the live broadcast on August 26th. The reason for the show being pre-taped is because of the Clash at the Castle Premium Live Event taking place in Cardiff, Wales on September 3rd, meaning that the SmackDown roster will be travelling to the UK before September 2nd.
Those in attendance have been able to provide spoilers to the events that took place during the tapings. The results have been obtained via Fightful.
the following events took place at the SmackDown tapings:
- Karrion Kross def. Drew Gulak
- Ronda Rousey came to the ring and called out Adam Pearce regarding her suspension. Pearce said that her suspension is lifted, since she has paid her fines and her arrest was unwarranted.
