Featuring some behind-the-scenes footage...
Deadspin reports that last night's episode of Smackdown leaked online just before its official airing in a pre-production format. It features unedited crowd noise, missed cues and more. It originally appeared on Youtube but was removed. You can now find it here. Here are some highlights:
- Michael Cole and John Bradshaw Layfield get entrances with their own music before the start of the show. JBL gets playfully shoved by the cameraman off the ring stairs and Cole said: "I cannot wait until he takes that bump coming down that ramp."
- Cole and JBL talking through their headsets with show producer Kevin Dunn and Vince McMahon.
- In part one at around 1:50, Tony Chimel introduces Jimmy Hart before the show starts, then has to do it again after the official opening. Cole said: "Is he going to introduce Jimmy, since he just did? Chimel just introduced him. Somebody might want to tell him, I don't think he knows."
JBL added: "He doesn't know, he's looking over there like a goof."
- At 51:52 of the second video, Cole asks McMahon about a talking point. He said: "Do you want me to say that every time, because I've said it a shitload of times tonight."
Vince's reply isn't heard, but Cole immediately replies: "OK...yes sir...yes sir...OK, I've got it sir."
