- WWE will tape SmackDown this week from Toledo, Ohio. This is the same city last year where the non-camera side was only filled about two rows deep and there were only about 2,700 fans in attendance. The advance for this week’s tapings is a lot stronger than last year. For this year’s tapings, the lower bowl is already completely sold out and that’s at a $10 higher per ticket price than last year.
– The general consensus backstage last night at Extreme Rules was the pay-per-view came off well. The CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho and Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena matches received rave reviews.
There was a lot of chatter about Cena going over Lesnar in the main event. The feeling among most was that WWE should have waited before having Lesnar lose because getting a dominant former UFC Heavyweight Champion back on your roster doesn’t happen often and now Lesnar appears as just another talent on the roster that has lost to Cena.
