Crowd was decent sized and hot all night for the most part. They papered part of the top levels and some of the camera side, but for the most part the empty seats were few and far between. 7,000?
-Cena comes out and cuts a promo on Big Show and of course raps. He is so damn over it isn't even funny. Whoever said this gimmick didn't have shelf life must be high because on my watch, he started doing it in late December of 2002.
-Cena d. Rhyno with the Spiccoli Driver. Hot opener for SD, but not long at all.

-Commercial Break at this point, because they paused and then we went right back to another pre-tape.
-Backstage we see Heyman in a room full of SD superstars. Cuts a great emotional promo on last weeks deal with Eddie and this weeks deal with Austin. Really sold the angle for the fans, in my view. Basically said this is "your Smackdown". Don
