– The atmosphere at last night’s WWE SmackDown tapings in Green Bay was said to be more energetic than any recent WWE event in the area. The Packers’ Super Bowl celebration across the street at Lambeau Field with around 80,000 people in attendance ended less than an hour before WWE’s tapings began.
After WWE taped NXT and Superstars last night, Clay Matthews and his teammates showed up in the crowd holding replica championship belts to a huge ovation. It’s speculated that WWE did well on replica title belt sales last night as most fans were spotted wearing them.
Fans noted that “Let’s Go Pack” chants could be heard throughout the tapings last night, especially when the crowd seemed to lose interest in certain matches.
After the tapings ended, Edge and the Packers celebrated in the ring with kids and their replica belts. Edge took the mic and told Green Bay that they “have a ring full of World Champions. Screw the Steelers.”
Everyone then left until Dolph Ziggler grabbed the mic and said the Packers suck. Ziggler tried to get a “Packers sucks” chant going but Edge came back in and speared him to end the show.
