-WWE developmental wrestler James Bronson is currently out of action recovering from back surgery. Bronson's procedure was performed by Dr. James Maroon. Bronson, who is already 38 years old, is the son of Neil Freidman. Freidman was the president of Mattel from 2005 until 2011, and most recently was the president of Toys R Us.
-Due to the fact that the SmackDown taping for this Friday's show was moved from Tuesday to Wednesday this week, WWE didn't have enough time to properly edit the show. Because of that, the Australian broadcast ended up being a generic show with clips in place of an actual new episode.
